Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow won't play in the New York Jets' pre-season finale Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, and no one is more disappointed that Tebow won't be taking any snaps than Eagles cornerback, Brandon Boykin.

According to a Bleeding Green Nation report, Boykin -- who played against Tebow in college while at the University of Georgia -- was looking for some payback on Thursday night:

I was looking forward to getting some "Tebow Time," so it's disappointing that he won't play. I was trying to get a pick or a sack or something. I never beat him in college, two years in a row. He threw a touchdown to Riley Cooper and he one-handed it in the back of the end zone. That's something I'm not proud of. It was a good catch. There was no way he would've caught that any other day.
