It's still open season on Mark Sanchez.
The moment came when Smith was on the air, co-hosting WFAN's The Drive.
"He sucks. I wouldn’t let Mark Sanchez throw me a paper bag sandwich," Smith said of Sanchez.
For the curious out there, Sanchez was ranked No. 30 alongside recently drafted Geno Smith, with the following comment:
30. Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez, Jets: This is where things start to get ugly. My money is on Geno to win the job and for Sanchez to eventually get discarded by a new regime in New York.
That's not exactly a great deal of confidence in Sanchez. Still, I would imagine Brinson would accept any delicious sandwiches Sanchez might be tossing around.

Sanchez to Steve Smith: "I wish him and his team a healthy, successful season."5/16/2013, 4:52:35 PM
Let's see if good manners can win a quarterback duel.
As for Smith, he was more than likely playing the part of shock jock in his stint on the radio. In an effort to come across as funny and edgy, he completely annihilated a fellow NFL player.
Sanchez jokes are nearly as easy as ragging on Tebow, so we don't blame him for the low-hanging fruit. Still, Sanchez now has some extra motivation in his latest attempt to keep the starting job.
