Playing the Field: Tebow, Sanchez get a music video

When it comes to the Jets, we just can’t look away.



When it comes to the Jets, we just can’t look away.

From HBO’s “Hard Knocks” to a foot fetish video, brushes with the law to high profile celebrity flings, New York’s not-so-successful but certainly headline-grabbing football team is something we can’t take our eyes off. And now, finally, something worth whistling to as well.

The Network of Champions, a channel on YouTube, enjoys making parodies of absurdity in sports, which is a perfect combination with this Jets team. And nothing is more fitting than the unusual quarterback situation involving Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, now immortalized in song parody.

And because you surely will be humming this tune -- sung to the tune of Maroon 5's "Payphone" -- on your way to MetLife Stadium for your tailgate, the sometimes sacrilegious but rather witty lyrics:

I'm in the end zone watching Tim Tebow

Hoping that someone helps with his aim

Don't care that Rex is playing Mark Sanchez

Jesus is trying to win some games

Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember

The Jets that we used to be

It's even harder to picture

That you're not starting for me

Your stats are too bad to make it

But are they too bad to try?

And on those downs that you wasted

All of your passes fell down

Hey, No. 15

Let's take NYC

Wait, I mean Jersey

Get down on one knee

And do the Tebow

You won't have to throw

Much in paradise

I'm in the end zone watching Tim Tebow

Hoping that someone helps with his aim

Don't care that Rex is starting Mark Sanchez

Jesus is trying to win some games

They say that you're a virgin, is it true?

It must be hard to meet girls in home school

Will you win a Super Bowl or two?

Or will another Manning upstage you?



Too bad NOC didn’t come a decade earlier. Would have loved to hear them try to rhyme something with Vinny Testaverde.
