Butt Fumble Oral History of New York Jets - Inside the NFL's king of bloopers at its five year anniversary
It's Nov. 22, 2012, a crisp, still Thanksgiving night inside MetLife Stadium. Surrounded by 79,088 fans, Mark Sanchez crouches confidently under center at the 31-yard line, his team down 14-0 with 9:10 to play in the second quarter. For a split second, while staring across at the Patriots' defense and waiting for the snap on first down, everything is still possible for Sanchez and the Jets. The game is still up for grabs. A captive national audience is still tuned in. Sanchez still has franchise-quarterback potential. Rex Ryan is still the mastermind who will guide New York's other football team out of a four-decade malaise.
