Harsh words for Mark Sanchez
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has caught a lot of heat from teammates and the media over the past year, lots of it! Some has been warranted, some has not. Well now his competitors are weighing in even if they’ve never played a snap with him. Outspoken Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith jumped on Mark during a recent radio interview.
“I wouldn’t let Mark Sanchez throw me a paper bag sandwich,” Smith said on WFNZ, via the Sporting News. (ProFootballTalk)
Normally one would just say that’s a player trying to get into an opponents head but you can’t say that here. Smith plays in the opposite conference and the Panthers face the Jets only once every few years. This year does happen to be that year though.
What makes this truly harsh is this Steve Smith, he’s been playing for the Carolina Panthers. When have the Panthers had a good quarterback(sorry the jury is still deliberating on Cam Newton)? Does Smith even know what a good quarterback?
Saying he wouldn’t let Sanchez throw him a paper bag sandwich well that’s just a low blow and a huge kick in the nuts after all the quarterbacks he’s played with. Hello Jimmy Claussen, Jake Delhomme, Rodney Peete, Vinny Testaverde and Chris Weinke.
