07:51 AM ET 04.20 | Mark Sanchez stepped out of character for a few telling moments earlier this week, revealing what just about everyone else around him had believed for the better part of a year: The Jets contributed to the hype surrounding Tim Tebow's presence on the team as much as anybody else last season. "I just don't know if it was the best situation for either of us," Sanchez said of playing amid Tebowmania on Fox Sports Radio's "Petros and Money" show this week. "But you play with the cards you are dealt with and do the very best you can." Sanchez, of course, was absolutely right. Tebow's arrival stunted the growth of both quarterbacks as it triggered one of the most bizarre non-competitions in league history. Owner Woody Johnson, who made it clear during training camp that "(the Jets) are in the media business," contributed to the unnecessary chaos in training camp by allowing ESPN to open up a de facto Cortland branch to document Tebow's every move.
