Mark Sanchez

Brady Quinn

Ran into his own player’s butt and fumbled the football (butt fumble), which was subsequently returned by the rival New England Patriots for a touchdown. He, uh, still hasn’t lived that down. Most Embarrassing Moment Gotta be be that Men's Health Celebrity Fitness photo with water raining down, right?
Went to back-to-back AFC Championship games. (Note that he lost both of those games because you can only ride a boring, sub-par quarterback so far) Greatest On-Field NFL Accomplishment? We…we don’t know.
Oh God, yes. Gross Facial Hair? Nope!
Yes. They’re gross and weird and we regret that we’ve seen them or even know of their existence. Naked Pictures On The Internet? Not to our knowledge. And we don’t really want “Brady Quinn naked pics” in our Google search history, thankyouverymuch. We’ll leave this one a mystery.
On most days, yes. Even in the off season. Frustrates New Yorkers To No End? No, but, give the young man time. He’ll make it happen.
Probably. Will Be Playing Elsewhere Next Season? Probably.

The winner is

    Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol

    With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.

    There are very few worldwide occurrences that captivate fans of every nation the way that the Olympics and World Cup have proven to do. When the time comes for either event you can bet that the majority of the world shifts their attention to these amazing month-long competitions. 2014 has been a great year for fans of the Olympics and the World Cup as both took place in the span of just a few months.
