Mark Sanchez is undoubtedly experiencing the worst 24 hours of his life. After tossing away the Jets' playoff hopes and his starting job, the struggling signal-caller is now dealing with a crazed fan. Shortly after the Jets' loss to the Titans, one Twitter user, @BraveGrancru, began issuing death threats, threatening to murder Sanchez at practice Wednesday. (Disclaimer: the following tweets contain offensive language.) https://twitter.com/BraveGrancru/status/280899145974300672 https://twitter.com/BraveGrancru/status/280901801920843776 https://twitter.com/BraveGrancru/status/280903090171953153 Per the Associated Press, the NFL is aware of the situation. https://twitter.com/DWAZ73/status/281144405560266752 The fan has since claimed he "has no problem" with Sanchez, and even preached his story to the Daily News. Whether joking or not, this was an extremely idiotic -- and justifiably punishable -- thing to put out there, especially in light of all the recent shootings. ...

  • Hopefully this genius has been arrested and is being questioned as we speak. True, Sanchez stinks, but so do the Jets and their over inflated poor excuse for a head coach. Ryan is a moron, the only reason they even got to those two AFC Championship games was on the strength of their defense at the time. A defense that is no longer any good. The Jets front office is also to blame for the poor decisions they've made....why did they even trade for Tebow if they had no intentions of using him for anything? As a Giants fan I love the fact that the Jets are such a joke, but so is this mental midget who tweeted that he would kill Sanchez.
