08:47 AM ET 06.30 | Legendary Bills quarterback Jim Kelly does not understand why the Jets brought in Tim Tebow, but he's glad that they did. Kelly, who starred in Buffalo from 1986 to 1996, said he's wishing for "so much turmoil in training camp" that all of a sudden Jets' locker room "is coming apart. They open with the Buffalo Bills first game of the season in the Meadowlands (MetLife Stadium), so this could be very exciting," Kelly said on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" on Thursday night. The Hall of Fame signal-caller, who took the Bills to four straight Super Bowls (all losses), said he wouldn't be happy if he were Mark Sanchez and the Jets brought in Tebow, who started last year with the Broncos, as his backup.

Kelly ... " wouldn't be happy if he were Mark Sanchez and the Jets brought in Tebow."
In fairness to Tebow, is there any condition that he "would" be happy to be Sanchez as far as being a QB in the NFL pertains ?
This is really an indictment of Sanchez. If he cannot outplay Tebow , then what does that tell you?

It will be really interesting to see where the Jets go this year. Rex Ryan was able to do some amazing things with the the team his first two years. Are they in line for a resurgence or an implosion?

What I already know. Tebow is one of the rising stars in the NFL.

I've seen them both play and I don't think Sanchez has much to worry about. Except getting struck by lightning, or a freak tornado.

The Jets SUCK!!

Says something about the confidence you have in your team when you're glad your opponent may have stepped on their own foot.

If you can't beat em, hope they beat themselves!

With todays NFL if a QB does like Sanchez has on any other team they would be looking to replace him. I have no idea why they have stuck with him sooooo long. I wanna slap him for always so care free on the sidelines. He has no energy about him. They need to stick a cattle prod to his butt. That being said Tebow is the opposite in that aspect. What it boils down to however....neither should be starting on any team. I love Tebow for the example he sets for other Christians, but he has got to get more accurate. They both are backups at this time.

I'm sure the financial commitment associated with Sanchez' high draft status has a lot-- if not everything-- to do with it. There's a lot to criticize about the current CBA, but at least they got it right regarding the initial rookie contracts.

sooooo long? No come on that's a joke right? I mean the guy has played 3 season and 2 of those he got to the AFC title game. I understand that a lot of people like to dis Sanchez but the facts are the facts and the fact is that he's the best qb the Jets have had in over 20 years

I think Tebow should capitalize on his celebrity and retire at the end of the season and hit the motivational speaking circuit. That way he doesn't waste time making people think he can play QB and those that choose to can follow him elsewhere.

Good morning all.

TheJoker71, where are you? I'm awaiting my FM for hating on Tebow again.

Or waits until Peyton bombs out and the city of Denver all agree to go to church every Sunday if he'll come back. Of course that's after they hang horseface from the highest rafter in the stadium

Sanchez has a lot to worry about and getting struck by lightning or hit by a tornado isn't one of them.

"...all of a sudden Jets' locker room is coming apart..."

All of a sudden? Where have you been the last couple of years, Jim? Revis, Holmes, Plax, Sanchez/Tebow and Fat Rex, what more do you need?

All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put the Jets' locker room together again.
