Esiason: Sanchez like a chihiuahua
The piling on of the New York Jets fiasco finish continues from a variety of angles.
One-time Jets quarterback turned broadcaster Boomer Esiason said that current Jets QB Mark Sanchez reminded him of a chihuahua with the way he played down the stretch this season.
Esiason told WEEI-AM 850 in Boston in a story picked up by NFL.com that "If you watched Mark Sanchez the last month of the season, he was like a chihuahua standing on Madison Avenue and 36th Street entering the Midtown Tunnel, eyes bigger than you-know-what, and just so shaky."
Boomer also lowered the boom on Jets coach Rex Ryan, GM Mike Tannenbaum and receiver Santonio Holmes, all of whom have been easy targets this week as the Jets melted down to end the season at 8-8.
"I think that (coach) Rex Ryan's ways have come back to haunt him," Esiason said. "And (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum ... has a lot of responsibility in this regard, because they have put a lot of bad guys together in this locker room. There's a good core of players for the New York Jets. But unfortunately, all it takes is one guy. And Rex Ryan giving Santonio Holmes the captain's 'C' on the chest was an absolute embarrassment. It's a slap in the face of all the good guys in that locker room."
Next season, maybe Sanchez will get the "C" for chihuahua.
