Plaxico: Mark Sanchez had a shoulder problem in 2011

Mark Sanchez AP

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez wasn’t listed on an injury report with shoulder problems last year.

That may or may not mean he didn’t have one.

Job-seeking wide receiver Plaxico Burress said Monday that Sanchez wasn’t himself last season, blaming an injury which wasn’t revealed.

“He definitely has enough arm,” Burress said in an interview with WFAN radio, via Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com. “He was battling some injuries last year, shoulder-wise that a lot of people didn’t know about . . . different things like that. But I think he really turned a corner.”

Sanchez was listed on the report with a neck injury in Week 15 and Week 16.

Any injury may have explained his lack of production downfield, as he completed just five passes all season longer than 21 yards.

Or, maybe Burress just continues to talk to try to keep himself in the public eye — in hopes of getting on an NFL roster.

    Dont buy it.

    He doesn’t want to sound like a bad teammate or a locker room problem

    I’m not buying this warm and fuzzy Plax.

    The official diagnosis: Noodle Arm.

  5. nashwaakkidd says: Jul 9, 2012 4:15 PM

    what did plax accidently shoot him in the shoulder and forget to mention it?? wish this clown would just go away…. no more stops on the gravy train for a player who in one dimentional, in the red zone. between the 20′s he’s no more than a decoy.

    Eli Manning had a shoulder problem in 2007. How did that turn out?

  7. tcostant says: Jul 9, 2012 4:17 PM

    What a difference a year makes for Burress?

  8. jhb64 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:19 PM

    Plax should worry about himself.

  9. akismet-affa31dadecc59674c92c0889f2be8c6 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:20 PM

    Yeah, the problem was the that the shoulder is attached to Mark Sanchez.

  10. prmpft says: Jul 9, 2012 4:20 PM

    Brother – you got that right. His shoulder was definitely a problem. Among other things.

  11. blue18hutthutt says: Jul 9, 2012 4:20 PM

    Yeah I’m sure that’s the REAL reason he sucked

  12. unbiased8383 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:20 PM

    So that’s why he throws the ball directly to defenders. Now that he’s healthy I’m sure he’ll be tossing over 4500 yards w/ 35 td’s and 6 picks. Jets fans must be relieved.

  13. nypd1056 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:22 PM

    Jees, even St. Tim did better than that

  14. tylerdurden2628 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:22 PM

    I dont know if its a “shoulder problem” as much as it is he cant throw for crap.

  15. patriots123456 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:23 PM

    Last year he may have had a shoulder problem.

    This year he has a Tebow problem. LOL

  16. nebster21 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:25 PM

    Rex Ryan hide something from the Media. No way!

  17. chazzmon says: Jul 9, 2012 4:26 PM

    Sanchez really has to step it up this year or he’ll end up being a career back-up at best.

  18. worldchampsbaby says: Jul 9, 2012 4:30 PM

    he’s sucking up to Sanchez and previously,Eli.He needs ajob!!!

  19. dellis07 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:32 PM

    This guy just continues to run his mouth. If you’re on the field, you can play. No excuses

  20. dawgsafety13 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:36 PM

    Phew!

    I thought it was his entire throwing arm that was the problem.

  21. frankfordyellowjackets says: Jul 9, 2012 4:38 PM

    He could have something negative to REALLY keep himself in the public eye.

  22. frankfordyellowjackets says: Jul 9, 2012 4:38 PM

    have “said” something

  23. rahavort says: Jul 9, 2012 4:38 PM

    He had more than a shoulder problem….

  24. commonsensedude says: Jul 9, 2012 4:39 PM

    Wow. I had always assumed it was a head problem.

  25. schmitty2 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:44 PM

    That’s just the tip of the iceberg of his problems

  26. zeke2517 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:45 PM

    Sweet hearsay.

  27. farty5 says: Jul 9, 2012 4:46 PM

    Just a few weeks ago, Burress was shunning the Sanchize. Now he’s changed his tune? I guess the job search isn’t going well.

  28. realnflmaster says: Jul 9, 2012 4:49 PM

    Makes sense. He played so well in the playoffs beating down the Cheats in their building and then the following season after the first few weeks plays horribly.

    2012 Superbowl Champions. uMAD?????

  29. rr2000k says: Jul 9, 2012 4:51 PM

    Suuuuurrrreeee he did…

  30. omegalh says: Jul 9, 2012 4:53 PM

    Look at the Sanchizes numbers. He is arcing up with his TDs and Yards. INTs are bad but even Eli had those in his first three seasons. Its too bad he plays for big mouth rex. Probably won’t get the time to progress before the media/impatient fans eat him up.

  31. wussbasket says: Jul 9, 2012 4:55 PM

    Sanchez is so bad, even when fully healthy.

  32. dbellina says: Jul 9, 2012 5:00 PM

    His real problem is what is in between his shoulders.

  33. jimthebuilder27 says: Jul 9, 2012 7:32 PM

    His shoulder was a problem…and the fact that he’s more interested in dating people and having his picture taken than of doing his best to improve his game.

  34. jacobslatter says: Jul 9, 2012 9:22 PM

    Matt Ryan had a finger, hand, wrist, elbow, bicep, tricep, & rotator cuff problem against the NY Giants.

  35. alltee says: Jul 9, 2012 9:42 PM

    sanchez had the same shoulder problem as brain and arm problem.

    he doesnt have the shoulders of brady, brees, manning, rogers and maybe even tebow

  36. jerseyshoregiant says: Jul 9, 2012 9:45 PM

    So Let’s see, Plax who was in jail the year before last season thinks Sanchez wasn’t the same. Does anyone think Plax went back and watched prior years film on Sanchez?

  37. beerbudsnbevo says: Jul 10, 2012 12:12 AM

    Ever notice a trend with USC QB’s….

    Great in college….suck in the Pro’s….

    It’s the System they run down in So. Cal…

    Wonder what the over/under on Matt Barkley being a bust is….?

  38. joecb91 says: Jul 10, 2012 1:08 AM

    He there a pick to the same defensive lineman twice in one game.

    He may play so bad that you wonder if he was injured, but really he was perfectly fine. His accuracy just sucks.

  39. ivydude81 says: Jul 10, 2012 1:29 AM

    Shoulder problem or not Sanchez is a BUST. First 2 years in the league Sanchez had best offensive line, #1 rushing attack, and a top rated defense. Last year, they needed mark to throw more which led to more turnovers and leading the league in 3 and outs. Defense got less rest and as a result gave up more points.

    Mike tannenbaum the so called cap genius almost gave this clown as much money as Tom Brady last year. (Brady only made like a million more) Unfortunately, the Jets are the laughing stock of the NFL for how much they paid Sanchez and what other players around the league and teammates really think of him. And this is coming from a jets fan.

    Plaxicos waistband had a problem.

  41. dryzzt23 says: Jul 10, 2012 4:48 AM
