Mark Sanchez Fumbles After Running Into Offensive Lineman [VIDEO]
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez appropriately summarized the extremely disappointing season Gang Green has had in one unbelievable play.
The Jets have had a dramatic fall from grace. The New England Patriots destroyed the Jets on Thanksgiving evening 49-19. In 2009 and 2010, the Jets made it to the AFC Championship Game. Last season they dropped to 8-8 while failing to make the playoffs. Now, the Jets find themselves at 4-7 in 2012.
Quarterback Mark Sanchez fumbled after running into offensive lineman Brandon Moore early in the 2nd quarter on Thursday night. Sanchez watched safety Steve Gregory scoop up the football and run for a touchdown to make the score 21-0. The play was a microcosm of the Jets’ season; a complete train wreck.
There was a miscommunication between Sanchez and the running backs. Running back Shonn Greene faked a sweep to the left while fullback Lex Hilliard ran directly up the middle. Sanchez looked like he missed a handoff and then just tried to make the most out of a busted play. He ended up making a bad play dramatically worse.
That’s pretty much how the season has played out for the Jets. The moves that they’ve made in hopes of improving the team (like bringing in Tim Tebow), have only made the team worse.
