Steve Smith Clowns Jets QB Mark Sanchez with Sandwich Joke

It's still open season on Mark Sanchez

CBS New York (h/t NFL.com) reports Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith had some interesting things to say about New York Jets quarterback 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.

Ouch. 

According to a tweet referenced by CBS New York, the comment came during a discussion about CBS Sports' Will Brinson and his recent quarterback rankings

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. 

NFL.com notes that Sanchez has answered and decided to take the on-ramp to the high road, offering the following via USA Today's Mike Garafolo:

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.
