Our pal Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports mentions (with link back to our story, thank you very little) that Jets rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez is already known as “Sanchize.”
And Silver says that, given Sanchez’s new nickname, Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell wanted one of his own.
And so, says Silver, Russell’s teammates came up with this: “OffDaMarcus.”
Silver, of course, is kidding. (We think.) And Raiders exec John Herrera possibly will soon be accusing Silver of coming up with the name while Silver was smoking pot with Tim Kawakami.
