Mark Sanchez

Is a Bold-faced Liar!

1/30/2009 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's one of the highest rated QBs in the upcoming NFL draft, yet somehow, former USC superstar Mark Sanchez kept a straight face when he said he'd be excited to play for the -- wait for it -- Detroit Lions?!

Mark Sanchez: Click to watch
Now, Mark's a smart guy, as evidenced by his college degree and the fact he was the only USC player to answer our impromptu "current events quiz" during the Rose Bowl -- but why would anyone on the planet have any legitimate desire to play for the worst team in the history of professional sports?

Oh yeah ... money. And the fact that he only needs to win ONE game and he's a hero.

We'll take him. Can't hurt AND he's easy on the eyes. It's a win-win for female and male Detroit Lions fans.

Why you ask?? $$$$$ Playing QB for the Detroit Lions would mean he is the #1 overall pick in the NFL draft. In short the number 1 pick usually makes the most money than any of the other rookie picks. It's that Simple

Well... Look at what Manning did for the Colts. Maybe Sanchez thinks he could do the same for the Lions.

Improbable? Yes... Impossible? No.

Newsflash TMZ Mark Sanchez is the second best QB in draft and if he goes to Detroit its pick 20 from the Cowboys you guys on staff need to look up more Mock Drafts and watch sportscenter.

If he does come to the Lions he will leave two years later to win the Super Bowl for another team. Seems when ever a player leave Detroit he goes straight to a team who wins it all.

I think TMZ totally missed the point as to why Sanchez said that we wants to play for the Lions........he is lobbying to be the number one pick. Morons.

8 I got that but still TMZ has someone on that staff that posts alot about sports and stuff I see him on the show I think he would know that, Now number 9 Sean McHugh was cut by the Lions before the season started and then added to the Steelers the next day lol know he not a star or anything but still.

I stand corrected.on the superbowl players. However, i was thinking more along the lines of Greats Such as Joey Harrington, Roy William, Kevin Jones etc. LOL!! As far as Sanchez playing in Detroit,... What does TMZ Expect him to say on Camera??? Dis the prospect of being the #1 overall pick. Of course he is going to say he would love to play in Detroit. No matter what his true feelings are. And given Detroit's history in recent drafts. Maybe Crabtree is the number 1 overall this year?
