While Mark Sanchez may be gone from the New York Jets, he is still trending on Twitter for his pitiful play with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The New York Jets drafted Mark Sanchez and watched him excel in the New York spotlight for a few years. Cut in 2014, Sanchez started out strong for the Jets and then injuries ended up being his downfall.
Even if his stats weren’t other-worldly, he still managed to take the Jets to the playoffs in two of his four years, including an impressive victory over the New England Patriots in 2011.
Bouncing from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Denver Broncos and now to the Dallas Cowboys, Sanchez had a chance to redeem himself on the field Sunday afternoon.
Two interceptions and several poor decisions later, Sanchez found himself the butt of the joke on Twitter once again.
"The Cowboys OL is so good that ANYONE can look like a star behind them."
Mark Sanchez: "We'll see about that."

Idk who was a bigger train wreck: Mariah Carey last night or Mark Sanchez today against the Eagles.

Sanchez went 8-15 for 80 yards with two interceptions on the day. His drives only resulted in one field goal, when Dak Prescott and Tony Romo both produced scoring drives in only three combined drives.
Sanchez ended the afternoon with a dismal 27.5 quarterback rating, as well as the loss.
Right when you think Mark Sanchez is going to do something athletic, he reminds you that he's Mark Sanchez.

Although it was only Sanchez’s first game this season, aside from a quick set in Cleveland, he is not fit to run the offense in Dallas like Prescott or Romo.
Getting the majority of snaps on Sunday was a gift for Sanchez. I guess he just didn’t really want it.
Oh, and Twitter reminded us of this. Sorry, Mark Sanchez, but we can never forget.
"Hi, I'm Mark"

At this rate for Mark Sanchez, the butt fumble might be considered progress

Sorry, Dallas, he’s your problem now.
