The Mark Sanchez Tweets On Sunday Were Just The Most Savage

The Mark Sanchez Tweets On Sunday Were Just The Most Savage

The Dallas Cowboys had already locked up the NFC East and the number one seed in the conference before they played their final game of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles, so they rested many of their starters.

Quarterback Dak Prescott started the game and led the first two Cowboys drives before he was replaced by Tony Romo. Romo then played one drive before he was replaced for the rest of the game by third string quarterback Mark Sanchez.

The quarterbacks’ stats for the game were as follows:

Prescott: 4/8 for 37 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT
Romo: 3/4 for 29 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT
Sanchez: 9/17 for 85 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT

Mark Sanchez wasted absolutely no time going full Sanchez, throwing the first of his two picks on his first drive of the game; and it never got any better from there.

With Sanchez in and with nothing to play for, the Cowboys lost 27-13 to finish the season with a 13-3 record. They will have two weeks of rest before they face either the Lions, the Giants or the Packers in Dallas, and there’s no reason to believe that they will not look every bit the dominant team that they’ve been all season.

There is, however, reason to believe that Sanchez may never get another shot in an NFL game after his truly embarrassing showing, and you better believe that Twitter was as savage as ever about it.

Don’t worry, it’s hilarious.

I don’t know if Skip meant this to be a burn, but it was the first time in a very long time that I considered retweeting one of his tweets in a non-sarcastic way.

I didn’t do it, but I thought about it!
