Sanchez appreciates Cromartie telling fans not to boo

AP

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie spoke out against fans who booed quarterback Mark Sanchez at training camp. Sanchez appreciates that support.

Asked by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News why fans would boo their quarterback while he’s practicing and trying to get better, Sanchez said, “Hey, you’re preaching to the choir.”

Sanchez added that he was glad to have Cromartie on his side.

“You heard what Cromartie said. Cromartie was pissed. Cromartie’s like, ‘What are you talking about? You’re going to come here and boo? For what? Then don’t come.’ A lot of guys feel like that,” Sanchez said.

Unfortunately for Sanchez, Cromartie and all the other guys who feel like that, the reality is that fans get to boo whoever they want. And at the moment, Jets fans want to boo Sanchez.

  1. Sanchez, you didn’t hear the full chant. All the fans were saying was BOOOO…………TY. In reference to that fun video you made. So you see they are your admirers, not haters.

  2. I wouldn’t have booed anyone at a scrimmage in August, but Mark has to understand that he’s been stealing money here for years. And many of the fans have paid a fortune to watch him do it. PSLs between $10,000-$30,000 per seat. Fifty bucks to park. Individual tickets well over $100.

    And a lot of that money has fallen into Mark Sanchez’s undeserving pockets. So you can’t have it both ways. You can’t get rich off of these people’s loyalty and then smear them when they boo—especially when you continue to play so poorly.

  3. Even though Tebow is no longer in NY, the circus known as the NY Jets continues to provide entertainment for the fans of the 31 other NFL teams,

  4. You’re gonna show and suck? AND get paid a guaranteed $8M? That’s why people boo you Mark.

  5. You’re a five year vet with four playoff wins and two AFC championship game appearances and yet somehow you’re in a qb battle with a rookie who’s about as mature as Kanye at an award show?

    You’re right you don’t deserve to be booed you deserve to be fired.

  6. Sanchez is THE worst quarterback in the NFL. And you people once thought Flacco was a chump…. More like

    Super Bowl MVP

    good luck trying butt fumble

    If you think Flacco is a great quarterback (he’s not), that’s fine. But please don’t talk about being the Super Bowl MVP. You know who else was Super Bowl MVP? Desmond Howard, Deion Branch, Dexter Jackson, and Santonio Holmes.

  8. Yo, Mark – maybe the boos from Jets fans have something to do with the 36 interceptions you’ve thrown in the last two seasons. But not to worry – when the season starts you’ll hear plenty of cheers if you’re the QB. Of course they’ll be from fans of the opposing team.

  9. This guy has a lot of balls, probably one of the worst, if not the worst QB’s in the NFL, couple that with what people pay to go to games, and his play is lower level college caliber , and he expects people not to boo? as I’ve said in other posts about him, he delusional. Next year he’ll be some other teams problem, thank God.

  10. I cant believe they asked the fans not to Boo! They will stop Booing when they stop being laughed out of every football conversation and sports bar across america! The definition of insanity is doing the same failing things without change!

  11. The fans have every right to boo. They support the team, pay money for merchandise and seats and parking, and get a dysfunctional franchise with a QB who gets 8 mil to play horrible and whine that he’s getting booed. Hey Mark, those fans also pay your salary!

    So glad I’m not a Jets fan. I wouldn’t take Sanchez as my sixth-string QB!

  12. anyone with a headband like that should get such a treatment

    a QB shouldn’t be listening to this stuff

    -cromartie often sums up why the jets are so awful. why the heck is this specific DB constantly getting involved in things? he makes them into an issue, I had NO CLUE sanchez was facing such a rough time at jets practice. I assumed such, but I didn’t think much about it. but here we are, with cromartie again drawing attention to something by speaking on it when he has nothing to do with it.

    they need to add a “silence” clause to his contract.

  13. As I heard on the NFL Network – paraphrased Sanchez and Smith are playing about the same level in camp. The problem is one is a rookie and the other is a 5th year guy. That’s why they are booing.

  14. can Sanchez please lose that stupid headband, it’s awful. Sanchez stinks, sorry, but he does. He’s no more than a backup. I think he’s had plenty of chances.

    Holy crap, even for an NFL team that’s a lot of money for a fan to lay out. I should send Mark my contact info and if he pays me 30 k/game I’ll be his booing stand in.

  16. “Sanchez is THE worst quarterback in the NFL.”

    You obviously don’t pay attention to the NFL.

  17. It’s gotta be hard being Sanchez with his mom being a Jets fan, booing him when he gets out of bed, booing him when he gets his cereal, booing him in the shower, booing him when he tries to cram the ball up an OL’s butt. You don’t want to know what she says when he drops a deuce “at least it didn’t go for six.”

  18. How about Sanchez and Cromartie stop cashing million dollar checks until after they get the job done, and then they have a right to ask to not be booed. Until then BOOOOOOOOOO! You guys are losers, your team is a loser, your coach is a loser, and it should be boos until you give the fans a reason to cheer.

    You guys have not done your job yet and accomplished anything worthy of the cheers, yet you sickly overpay a lot of people in the process which is further insulting to your own town and community as well as everybody that just appreciates professionalism and competition in this sport. So the boos, that’s your problem and YOUR FAULTS! These losers should keep their mouths shut and go wipe away the tears with hundred dollar bills, so BOOOOOOOOO to both of them and the rest of the Jets they represent. What a bunch of sad clowns. Interesting brand of football the Jets have decided to create for themselves. I would have went with a winning and glory theme myself, but these guys are the real pros, they surely know what’s best for them so I cheer on their conviction at least!

    Good luck this year Geno. Ok let’s find some stories about competitive football teams now.

  19. Only in America do you focus on what a man puts in his hair and act like that in itself isn’t the strange part.

  20. If you think Flacco is a great quarterback (he’s not), that’s fine. But please don’t talk about being the Super Bowl MVP. You know who else was Super Bowl MVP? Desmond Howard, Deion Branch, Dexter Jackson, and Santonio Holmes.

    hmmm Joe Namath: 173 td’s and 220 ints. 65.5 qb rating… 2-1 in playoffs

    joe flacco: 102 tds, 56 ints 86.3 rating. won at least one playoff game in each of his first five years, including a super bowl…

    Joe Namath, the epitome of a guy being considered great because of one game.

  21. had enough of ESPN too, bunch of robots preaching the same opinion, especially baseball, time to tune them out too. I will start using the mute button so I only see the scores and not the same old company inspired opinion.

  22. This guy is the worst QB in the NFL if you factor in his W-L and QBR and compare it to his contract.

  23. I’ve spent a year booing and telling the buttfumbler to lose the headband………pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee..!! When you look like a girl and play football like a girl….the boos will follow…..he’s a loser!!
