08:05 AM ET 05.16 | According to a recent statistical analysis, Mark Sanchez was one of the NFL's least-hurried quarterbacks. Thanks to one of the best offensive lines in the league, Sanchez was under pressure on just 27.66 percent of his 640 drop backs, which ranked 31st out of 34 QBs in the study. (Only Peyton Manning, Matt Hasselbeck and Jon Kitna were under duress fewer times.) Sanchez had the lowest completion percentage under pressure in the league at 35.46 percent. However, he did a solid job not turning the ball over in the face of pressure. Sanchez was intercepted only 2.82 percent of the time when under pressure, which ranked 18th in the NFL. He was also sacked on only 16.95 percent of his drop backs under pressure, which was 14th best.

He defense helps him a lot also.

It's good to see Rex Ryan's mouth not making headlines for the first time.

Either he's dressing for success, or dressing to be mocked. I choose to mock.

H eshould be driven to have this picture eradicated from all known libraries.


Unfortunately... like h@rp@s... it has spread.

He looks like a bobble-head.

"Lowest completion percentage under pressure." Somehow, I don't see this equating to "success."

Unfortunately this photo would make it seem as though he is up for an award at the Tony's. Maybe best director for a musical. Could they make him appear any less athletic in this pic?

There has to be a season. If there isn't, it would kill the market for bobbleheads.

His head looks so oversized that it looks like a bad job of photoshopping it in. Whose body do you suppose that is? I'm guessing Ellen Degeneris.

He was there to support Rex as HE was nominated for a Tony. He was up for most freaking drama a coach could cause in one season.

May 16, 2011  08:32 AM ET

With this picture his publicist should be stoned or probably was.

May 16, 2011  08:32 AM ET

Sanchez the man with the enormous head.

May 16, 2011  08:36 AM ET

show me a qb that does not need an o-line!

Sanchez had the lowest completion percentage under pressure in the league at 35.46%.
