November 11th is Mark Sanchez’s birthday. On this day, the Jets signal caller turns 25. Mark’s acquired a number of nicknames over the years – Sanchize, The Dirty, and most recently Flinchez for his embarrassing display against the Bills in Week 9. Being the top gun in New York is no walk in the park and Sanchez has handled most of the criticism and skepticism fairly well. From the backlash over his homoerotic photos in GQ to eating a hot dog during a game to banging a 17-year-old, it seems Mark’s been a marked man. Through it all, though, he’s kept winning ball games – none of which were pretty but a W’s a W. As long as he keeps avoiding Ls, he’ll keep getting T&A even after chicks see our birthday gift to him – funny pics and gifs of #6. Check ‘em out below.
