02:46 PM ET 04.16 | Mark Sanchez has been the starting quarterback for the New York Jets in each of the last four seasons, but to make it to a fifth he'll need to win a quarterback competition. On Monday, Sanchez told members of the media that he "completely understands" the need for the competition and that he is focused on coming away the winner. Sanchez, 26, struggled during the 2012 season, as his quarterback rating of 66.9 was the second-worst among qualifying passers. He completed just 54.3 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns and 18 interceptions as the Jets finished the 2012 season with a 6-10 record.

Thanksgiving, 2012....Oh, what a night....


"It's embarrassing. You screw up the play and I'm trying to do the right thing. It's not like I'm trying to force something. I start to slide and I slide in the worst spot I possibly could --- right into Brandon Moore.

"I guess (I was) more stunned than anything. It was just like a car accident. I was like, 'Whoa, what just happened? The ball is gone.' It was weird, man. That sucked."

Can anyone guess the play Mark Sanchez was describing?

As 50 has already said, who the heck is he competing with? Garrard? Seriously?

He does know how to execute the buttfumble play to perfection.

I was going to show my knowledge but Mangler had to beat me to it (pouting).

Ha! Let that be a lesson to you Sanchez, Buttfumbles are recorded and publicly shown worldwide.

What he understands is that he'll be the starter because the other QB options are so very, very poor.

Ahhh....I think to have a competition you need contestants. At least two. Jets must be planning on drafting a couple.
