Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez knows he’s being laughed at for fumbling when he ran into offensive lineman Brandon Moore’s butt on Thanksgiving. Eventually, Sanchez hopes he’ll be able to see the humor.
“Hopefully we’ll laugh about it later,” Sanchez said on Wednesday, in his first public comments since his team’s debacle against the Patriots.
Still, it may be a while before Sanchez can laugh about it. At the moment, he feels sick about it.
“It’s embarrassing because that’s one you [messed] up the play and I’m trying to do the right thing,” Sanchez said. “It’s not like I’m trying to force something and I start to slide and I slide right in the worst spot I possibly could, right into Brandon Moore.”
Sanchez said he wasn’t hurt on the play, but he was shocked.
“No, I wasn’t hurt. I guess more stunned than anything. Just like a car accident I was like, ‘Woah, what just happened?’ Then the ball was gone it was weird,” Sanchez said.
Some day, Sanchez may laugh about the weirdness of it all. But it may be a while.
