Former New England Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe was chatting with ESPN Radio about the play of Philadelphia Eagles backup Mark Sanchez when the topic inevitably turned to Sanchez's former team, the New York Jets, and the team's struggles to find a quarterback.
Bledsoe then offered an analogy to describe the Jets' difficulties with the position.
"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?” Bledsoe said on ESPN Radio. “That’s kind of what it is when you play quarterback for the Jets. It just feels bad."
While the simile may seem harsh, the Jets have torn through quarterbacks in recent years, and it is entirely possible that Sanchez would rather be pushed into lava than endure another season of New York Post headlines.
