The NY Media Would like to Remind You That Mark Sanchez Might Not Suck

Sunday was a day of irony. Michael Vick started for the hilarious Jets while Mark Sanchez replaced an injured Nick Foles and led the Eagles to victory. Vick didn’t play horribly, but the offseason quarterback swap seems to be working out in favor of the Eagles at the moment.

If you’re like me (and I apologize if you are), you’ve spent the last 36 hours or so trying to rewrite your grey matter to spit out positive feelings upon hearing the name Mark Sanchez. I’m still not there (all requests just return a status bar stuck at 18% since yesterday afternoon), but I imagine by next Monday night I’ll be all set to root for The Sanchize. Helping in that process is the NY media (who knew!), which would like to remind you that Sanchez used to play for the Jets, and that the Jets are a pathetic football team.

From the NY Post:

They might be calling him Señor Savior in Philadelphia.

Mark Sanchez doesn’t have to worry about Tony Sparano sending Tim Tebow in to run the wildcat. He doesn’t have to worry about playing garbage time in the Snoopy Bowl. He doesn’t have to worry about throwing the ball to Stephen Hill. He doesn’t have to hear “Buttfumble” taunts from the stands.

Sanchez sealed his own fate in New York with his 52 turnovers in his last two seasons as a Jet. But he will have a chance to state his case now. He didn’t get to throw the ball to Jeremy Maclin in New York. He didn’t get to hand off to LeSean McCoy. He didn’t play for a brilliant offensive head coach like Chip Kelly.

I had to cross out that one line because it was too difficult to read. But otherwise, good points all-around. What says yous, Drew Bledsoe and the NY Daily News?

Drew Bledsoe hasn’t played for the Jets’ greatest rival since 2001, but that didn’t stop him from taking a shot at Gang Green on Monday when asked about Mark Sanchez now starting in Philly.

“Going to play quarterback for the Jets … it’s kind of like, you know when they used to take the pretty young virgin up to the edge of the volcano and then just throw them in?” Bledsoe said on ESPN Radio. “That’s kind of what it is when you play quarterback for the Jets. It just feels bad.

“Mark had to live with that for a long time,” Bledsoe added. “And people threw him under the bus like he was the whole reason for the demise of the Jets.

“To see him be able to come on to the field in a good system, with good talent and perform well, I’m just really happy for him.”

Wasn’t expecting the old virgin in a volcano trope, especially since, you know, Mark Sanchez…

… but we’ll go with it.

Anyway, I need more of these articles, because they’re speeding this thing along:

  1. never mind this nonesense. did you hear the conklin mayor bit on wip this morning? CLASSIC!! that guy is so zany and wacky. THE RACE FOR MAYOR ISNT UNTIL NEXT YEAR!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

  2. I remember when my brother worked in New York, but lived in Philly. He would bring home the NYC newspapers at night. So the next day, I could read New York newspapers.

    That was 1998.

  3. I like Sanchez, and I am rooting for him, but before we get too carried away, let’s remember that in his last two full seasons with the J-E-T-S, he played 31 games and threw 36 INTS with 24 Fumbles!!! Granted, the cast around him wasn’t very good, but the 85 Bears couldn’t win with 56 TO’s by one guy! Let’s hope he just plays within the system and that we RUN the ball.

    1. sanchez will get the full offensive line treatment starting this week. lets see if he can 27-2 like foles did with it last year. HIGHLY DOUBT IT!!!!!

  4. Mark Sanchez puts the pretty in pretty boy,and will no doubt rival Allen Iverson and Pat Burrell in the amount of babes he scores nightly.
