08:47 AM ET 09.01 | when it comes to Tim Tebow's presence on the Jets. Theismann told WFAN Friday it's time for Sanchez to stand up for himself. "This strikes at the heart of Mark Sanchez's pride," Theismann said. "He's going to get booed. He's going to get thrown under the bus. And I want to see what kind of cojones he's got. That's what I'm looking for. -- I'm sick and tired of hearing this nice-guy stuff: 'Oh, Timmy's a nice guy. Oh, Mark's a nice [guy].' " Sanchez has said all the right things about Tebow since the Jets swung the stunning trade for the backup quarterback in March, but Theismann said he's tired of it. "Enough of this nicey two-shoe garbage. Stand up for what you believe in. You're the starting quarterback. This guy's not. That's the way it is. Deal with it."

Yeah, sure, Joe. It's the responsibility of every NFL player to mouth off like a Clydesdale's behind at every opportunity.

The Jets have plenty of Twittertwits and locker room cancers. I think both Sanchez and Tebow are showing some professionalism and leadership by staying above that.

Both Sanchez and Tebow are limited as NFL QBs. NFL front office folks aren't stupid and Tebow was brought in for a reason. He gives them an edge in certain situations that Sanchez does not. If Sanchez had a rocket for an arm and could make all the throws this wouldn't be happening. And I agree this is all media-driven garbage.

Great minds work alike, I think Joe is way off line here

Maybe Sanchez should do something totally self-aggrandizing .... like demanding that people pronounce his name differently. It worked for Joe THIGHSman.

Talka about two tales that should never be told. In "Sanchise" you have a totally incompetent and leaderless QB whom stumbles around the backfield and fall all over linemen and is on the ground more than Jeremy Love Lin. "Sanchise" is a natural disgrace to New York. In "Tebrow" you have a media made up QB who is as equally incompetent in every sense of the word as Sanchise is. When this guy throws a pass you ask yourself "exactl who the hell is this guy throwing too?" I mean the fluttering sparrowless sparrows, the skid on the ground two or maybe three times throws. I have never seen a guy who the media and fans wants to succeed some. Oh excuse me, my bad....you hand one Jeremy Lin so I take that back. I guess you can compare both these clowns to Jeremy.....great incompetence!

And yet somehow between these two "incompetents they've won more playoff games than Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler and Alex Smith all put together

An odd statistical anomaly, to be sure.

I think the Jets could have won it all a few years back if their defense didn't have to drag Sanchez along with them. Scientists refer to this as the Trent Dilfer Effect.

When will Lawrence Taylor break Theismann's other leg? And when he does, will Theismann finally ****?

You have to Score to Win! Dilfer did hid Job no matter how much you don't like him, that's something Dan Marino Never did and he's also Tied with Brett Farve and Peyton Manning for Super Bowl wins or haven't you heard?
