Re: Mark Sanchez - Misplay of the decade
1) When Sanchez declared for the draft, Pete Carroll, his coach at USC at the time, came out and said point-blank that he didn't think Sanchez was ready.
2) Sanchez's first big, massive mistake was going "Hollywood" the minute he stepped in New York City. He was on magazine covers, doing photo shoots, and in general getting into the media game. That's all he cared about. Being an athlete in New York is no joke. You have to be focused, or you have to be grounded, and a little bit boring, ala Eli Manning. If you're not, you'll get caught up in the glitz of NYC and crash and burn, ESPECIALLY as a QB.
