Well, this is an interesting comparison.
Former New England Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe recently defended Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez by comparing playing quarterback for the Jets to being a virgin sacrifice.
The remarks came in an interview with ESPN Radio.
“Going to play quarterback for the Jets … it’s kind of like — you know when they used to take the pretty young virgin up to the edge of the volcano and then just throw them in? That’s kind of what it is when you play quarterback for the Jets,” Bledsoe said, according to The New York Daily News.
“It just feels bad. Mark had to live with that for a long time,” he continued. “And people threw him under the bus like he was the whole reason for the demise of the Jets. To see him be able to come on to the field in a good system, with good talent and perform well, I’m just really happy for him.”
Sanchez was drafted first round in 2009 by the New York Jets and released five years later. Meanwhile the Jets signed Michael Vick and Geno Smith with hopes of a great future. However, with Vick benched and Geno taking the snaps, the Jets are struggling with a current 1-8 record this season.
