Marks Sanchez (Mark Travis John Sanchez), 27, is NFL's Philadelphia Eagles quarterback best known for his offensive abilities in American Football. Given to the fact that he has seen major ups and downs of his career since he was drafted in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft as the fifth overall pick by New York Jets and as the second Quarterback taken overall, he is one of the progressing quarterbacks of NFL.

Analyzing his stats, one would say he has done well for himself in jets. During his time in jets, struggling Jets went two straight times to the AFC Championship Game in 2009 and 2010. Upon his arrival, with his performance, he became the fourth rookie quarterback in NFL history to win his first playoff game and the second to win two playoff games.

The year 2011 and 2012 were entirely downhill for both Sanchez and Jets, as the Jets failed to reach to playoffs in both the year due to which criticism from critics and fans began to rise regarding his performances and the club strategies at such level that, the club had to bench him replacing him with Greg McElroy towards the end of 2012.

Even after he suffered from the season-ending shoulder injury during the pre-season in 2013 after being tackled by Marvin Austin, he was regarded as such a potential talent by the club that he was speculated to return to Jets. But Jets releases him on March 21, 2014, and one of the top teams; Philadelphia Eagles signs a one-year contract with him for average contract salary of $2,250,000/year on March 21, 2014, in a swap deal with Jets, where Eagles quarterback Micheal Vick goes to jets.

Sachez came to Jets as a famous star quarterback from University of South California, who as a starter quarterback had led USC to an astonishing 12–1 record and won the Rose Bowl against Penn State in 2008 for which Sanchez was awarded the Most Valuable Player award for his incredible offensive performance.

His popularity in USC was not only because he transitioned the team to such amazing performances but also due to his Mexican-American heritage, his talent, good looks and progressive attitude.

He wasn’t even a starter    quarterback before 2008. For 3 years, he wasn’t given much opportunity in USC because he was one of the backup quarterbacks for John David Booty, however after the injuries of starter quarterback John David Booty in 2007, he rose to prominence with just the brief appearances in the year and later utilized the platform of USC to go to National Football League via 2009 NFL draft, and ultimately got selected by New York Jets.

However, his ULC coach Pete Caroll and scouts called him too inexperienced to play at national league level. But small criticisms weren’t going to stop him because he was a promising player who was enjoying the Football.

He is a talented and experienced player with solid athlete body and above average arms. Accordingly, he can put good velocity on the ball by putting good touch on his throws plus he is right for the rollout and throws well on moves. His 225 lb massive body and sky are moving the height of 6 feet, and 2 inches is also a plus point for his offensive abilities.

He has always been the above than average player, but he is not one of the top offensive players, however, upon his arrival, he was regarded as the chosen one. Maybe he should have waited another year in USC to gain more experience. But now things look fine for him because he is in Eagles, whose coach is regarded as one of the best offensive coaches in NFL. This is all about his Professional life but what about his personal life regarding relationship status, that’s the question which has been creating lots of media buzz.

The rumor of him being a gay is extremely doubtable because he never admitted being a homosexual. However, who knows him well describe him as a friendly person.

You can get a couple of his shirtless pictures on the internet. But his body show has gone to the level in public far beyond being shirtless. An online video goes viral in 2013 which shows Sanchez partying and smoking with two girls with his pants down. However, it was Alana Kari, one of the two girls who posted the video on her Vine accounts. To know more about the incident go to: here.
