Mark Sanchez

Brady Quinn

Ran into his own player’s butt and fumbled the football (butt fumble), which was subsequently returned by the rival New England Patriots for a touchdown. He, uh, still hasn’t lived that down. Most Embarrassing Moment Gotta be be that Men's Health Celebrity Fitness photo with water raining down, right?
Went to back-to-back AFC Championship games. (Note that he lost both of those games because you can only ride a boring, sub-par quarterback so far) Greatest On-Field NFL Accomplishment? We…we don’t know.
Oh God, yes. Gross Facial Hair? Nope!
Yes. They’re gross and weird and we regret that we’ve seen them or even know of their existence. Naked Pictures On The Internet? Not to our knowledge. And we don’t really want “Brady Quinn naked pics” in our Google search history, thankyouverymuch. We’ll leave this one a mystery.
On most days, yes. Even in the off season. Frustrates New Yorkers To No End? No, but, give the young man time. He’ll make it happen.
Probably. Will Be Playing Elsewhere Next Season? Probably.
