The Jets’ offense has looked nothing short of terrible this preseason, but that doesn’t have the Jets’ quarterbacks feeling down.
Both Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow told reporters today that they actually feel good about where the Jets’ offense is headed, and that they’ve demonstrated they can play well on the practice field, even if they haven’t done it yet in the preseason.
“Absolutely, I’ve seen it from this group already against our defense,” Sanchez said, in comments distributed by the team’s PR staff. “I’ve seen it on the practice field and now we have to translate it to a game. I think the most important point that Rex [Ryan] talked to us about today, is translating what we do in practice onto the game field.”
Tebow said he has seen improvement consistently, including today.
“I feel like every day we’re getting better,” Tebow said. “I think today at practice we showed some good things. We did some good things out there, we hit some big plays and we have to keep getting more consistent and limit the negative plays.”
Asked if the Jets have lost any confidence, Tebow said, “I don’t think so at all.”
So the players in the Jets’ locker room remain confident. Few Jets fans share that confidence.
