It might very well have been the worst play in NFL history. It certainly was the most embarrassing. Yes, I’m talking about the “Bumble,” the “Poop n’ Score,” the play that singlehandedly swung momentum in the Pats’ favor during their 49-19 drubbing of the Jets on Thanksgiving Eve. Mark Sanchez dropped back on what appeared to be a handoff, but when he turned to the right to deliver the ball running back Bilal Powell was nowhere to be found. Powell went left instead and Sanchez panicked, scrambling slightly to the left before deciding to run right and smash head first into the rear end of right guard Brandon Moore. The contact jarred the ball loose, and ball-hawking safety Steve Gregory picked up the ball and brought it in for the score. It was absolutely hilarious to watch, both as a Patriots fan and football fan, and it’s no surprise that video clips of it online are quickly gaining popularity. If you have yet to see the play, or would simply enjoy watching it again, here it is:
So, what’d you think? Worst play ever? It certainly gave you a good laugh, right? You can tell by Sanchez’s reaction (i.e. dropping his head face down in the turf) just how bone-headed a play it was. Ah, it’s good to see the Jets fail, especially on national television.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Anyone who has witnessed the Jets play over their first eleven games can attest to the fact that Mark Sanchez lacks a quality supporting cast and knows that Rex Ryan has tried in vain to talk up, and coach up an undermanned team. If the Jets tank at any point during the final stretch of five winnable games though, Ryan must acknowledge that part of the problem this season has been...
There are plenty of negative things to say about Mark Sanchez as a quarterback, but you can't discount his optimism.
Just five days after getting shellacked by the New England Patriots, the New York Jets' quarterback is still confident about his team's playoff chances, despite a 4-7 record. Perhaps when things have hit rock bottom there's nowhere to go but up, but...
Gary Myers of the New York daily News believes that the Jets will maintain QB Mark Sanchez despite another disappointing season.
With Sanchez set to make $8.25 million next year, Myers writes that the solution to the Jets quarterback problem is to give Sanchez real competition for his job. It has become quite clear that the Jets do not view Tim Tebow as an adequate replacement...
KEEPING THE FAITH
Joe Namath indicated he was losing faith in Mark Sanchez, but the former Jets legend apparently is still on board with the current QB.
Is New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez becoming the worst quarterback in the NFL? Did Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s foot have a built in groin detector? What happens when a kid sees free candy and big boobs at the same time – we’ll give you these answers and more on this episode of Ride The Pine.
The post Mark Sanchez Butt-Fumbles appeared first...
Oh boy. It seems that New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez has been dipping into the Kool-Aid that his head coach enjoys. It must also be spiked with some something pretty strong. The Jets currently stand at 4-7 and the cusp of futility, and a major offseason shake-up anticipated. There are zero glimmers of hope [...]
A cap tip to longtime Friend of the Facts William Berry for the video: N.Y. Jets lowlights, played to the tune of the old British slapstick comedy, the Benny Hill Show.
Jets guard Brandon Moore said that he is bothered by being associated with the now notorious "butt fumble" play where Mark Sanchez fumbled after running into his backside.
How bad has this season been for the New York Jets? So bad that it convinced Ed Anzalone, aka “Fireman Ed,” to step away from his post as a fan leader for the team. Anzalone has been a Jets fan since 1975 and has been leading a J-E-T-S chant from Section 134 at Jets home games since 1986. However, the drama, negativity, and losing surrounding the team became too much for him...
I don’t blame Fireman Ed for walking away disgustipated with his Jets. It’s hard to stay upbeat and ready to support your team after such a performance. By now, we’ve all learned that Mark Sanchez is a big Sir Mix-A-Lot fan with his unholy gravitational pull towards Moore’s backside. But for fantasy purposes and for nearly as much humor we were treated to another...
Each passing day brings more embarassment to the Jets organization. As if every radio show and newspaper belittling the team wasn’t enough, this video surfaced online today of the Jets players making their way to the locker room at halftime of the Thanksgiving game. Remember that game? The one where Mark Sanchez ran into his o-lineman’s ass and the Jets got stomped by the Patriots...
Fireman Ed Should Buy A Tri-Cornered Hat & Learn The Pats Chant.
The New York Jets went from a “THREAT” to the New England Patriots in the AFC East to an ABSOLUTE JOKE in just four seasons.
How have the MIGHTY have fallen.
Rex Ryan DOES NOT talk much anymore.
Mark Sanchez gets WORSE every season.
And “Fireman Ed” is hanging up his helmet for good….GANG GREEN has hit...
Without question … Funniest Moment of Week 11 courtesy of Mark Sanchez
We here at BallersSport hope that every one of our supporters had a great Thanksgiving holiday. Week 11 in the NFL is now in the books and its time for us to put out our top 11 story lines. These are things that we learned from the weekend.
1. Lions Coach Jim Schwartz should lost his red flag...
The Jets got dominated by the Patriots 49-19 on Thanksgiving night. And along with losing their seventh game in eleven tries, they also managed to lose their unofficial mascot, “Fireman Ed”.
For the second week in a row, Ed Anzalone left a Jets game a halftime because of confrontations with fellow fans. According to Anzalone, fellow Jets fans have been pretty hostile with him...
Since 1975, Ed Anzalone has attended New York Jets games at the Meadowlands, leading chants and making countless appearances on Jumbotrons and television screens.
But, it looks like the world has seen the last of Fireman Ed on their television screens. Anzalone announced in his guest column for Metro New York that he will continue to attend Jets games, but not in his famous getup...
