Mark Sanchez never had standout numbers. He couldn’t compare to Tom Brady or even Eli Manning. However, early in his football career, Sanchez found some success. When Rex Ryan took over for the New York Jets, he became the quarterback. All of sudden, the Jets were in the AFC Championship game for two straight years. They would lose both times to the Steelers and Colts.

The air was full of optimism for Jets fans, something they haven’t felt in a while. Everyone was ready for him to become the franchise quarterback they had wished for. Interestingly enough, he became one of the worst and gave us the infamous “butt fumble” on Thanksgiving Day 2012 when he ran into his teammate’s rear end, and led to another touchdown for the Patriots.
