Jets Fan Breaks Out The Mark Sanchez "Buttfumble" Jersey

It was over long before Greg McElroy put on his helmet, wasn't it? Mark Sanchez lost his team last week, when he ran headfirst into a lineman's ass.

Faster. Stronger. Smarter?

Da'Rel Scott ran a 4.34 40, impressive because he's 211 lbs. Stephen Paea benched 225 lbs 49 times, impressive because he's a human being.
