He has yet to play a game, but the Jets' first round draft pick has already been photographed in more non-sports publications since Joe Namath.
The fifth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft comes to the Jets from USC, where he was the Big Man on Campus.
Sanchez only started in 16 games at USC. If he starts every game as a Jet, he will equal that mark.
I do not think there is much doubt that he will not start for the Jets in September. This will be his Jet team on offense, and the fate of the team will rest heavily on his shoulders.
Last season, when Brett Favre became a Jet, his jersey became the hottest August fashion apparel in New York City.
Most fans knew that this would probably be a one or two year fashion statement at the most, and that you could have the future Hall of Famer’s jersey in your closet for years to come.
It was only one year, and now you can find your green and white No. 4 jersey selling for 50 percent off or more at your sporting goods store.
I think this jersey will surpass Favre’s numbers by plenty.
For Sanchez and for the Jets’ sake, you hope that he will give the fans more than one season of being able to wear the No. 6.
Jet fans hope to have this one framed in their basement someday. It probably will not be the red practice jersey, though.
ODDS of BUYING HIS JERSEY: (Um, you don’t have one yet?) one to six (Way better than even money)
