It hasn't been an easy couple of months for Mark Sanchez.
The New York Jets quarterback must fight for his job after the team drafted rookie quarterback Geno Smith -- a position battle Sanchez seems destined to lose, with most people writing him off long before training camp gets under way.

It's an out-of-left-field insult from a guy who never has played a snap with Sanchez. Is it a fair shot for Smith to take?
Smith has seen his share of bad quarterbacks in Carolina -- and Sanchez, admittedly, exhibits some of those traits -- but picking apart the Jets passer is easy sport here in May. Too easy.
UPDATE: Sanchez responded Thursday. USA Today's Mike Garafolo reported the quarterback said of Smith: "I wish him and his team a healthy, successful season."
