The Mark Sanchez career arc would seem to be at a low point right now, and not the kind of low point that comes in a movie script right before the hero rises again and defeats the bad guy or at least sets up the sequel. I’m talking the other kind of low point, the one that comes right before a guy disappears entirely.
Mark Sanchez sees things differently. He not only believes he has a great second chance in Philadelphia, he also thinks he is just now entering the prime of his career. Those were the exact words he used in an interview with Kimberley Martin of Newsday. Prime of his career.
“Maybe this whole shoulder thing and relocation has just been a blessing in disguise,” Sanchez said (via PFT). “Maybe that year off was exactly what I needed. Got a little rest for my legs, for my arm, and I feel great.”
Sanchez could have thrown in “got a little rest for my psyche” as well. Cause he took a psychological beating in New York. Of course Sanchez is denying that New York was a miserable experience, claiming he enjoyed his time there, even “the bad, the ugly” parts.
And now he’s in Philadelphia riding the pines behind Nick Foles. But at least he’s well-rested.
