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.

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.
