After the New York Jets failed to meet their Super Bowl aspirations this past season, their locker room came apart and players were strongly voicing their opinions about certain teammates, mainly quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Now that Sanchez has received an extension from the Jets, which in his mind solidifies him as the team’s “leader“, Sanchez decided to share his thoughts on a few other issues.
“It is a gutless thing to do,” Sanchez said during an interview on “The Michael Kay Show”on ESPN1050 in New York, in reference to the anonymous attacks.
Later, in a 25-minute sitdown with the media, Sanchez added: “If you’re not going to put your name on something, why waste anybody’s time? Obviously, they had strong opinions about it, but not strong enough to say who they were. “
Sanchez is absolutely right, although his response is a tad bit late. New York Giants’ 2-time Super Bowl champ Justin Tuck already took it upon himself to stick up for his fellow New Yorker by calling the anonymous player a “coward.’
Say what you want about Sanchez, at least when wide-out Santonio Holmes told the world how he truly felt about his QB, Sanchez was the bigger man and wanted to kiss and make-up with his star receiver.
