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.
