Plaxico Burress throws shade at ex-teammate Mark Sanchez
Plaxico Burress threw some shade at former teammate Mark Sanchez.
Sanchez is now the Washington Redskins’ starting quarterback after Alex Smith and Colt McCoy suffered leg injuries weeks apart. Sanchez was forced into action on Monday night, just two weeks after signing with Washington, due to McCoy’s injury. He went 13/21 for 100 yards and an interception and was largely ineffective in the 28-13 loss to the Eagles.
Sanchez is set to start Washington’s next game, which will be at home on Sunday against the New York Giants. Burress, who starred on the Giants from 2004-2008, took a shot at Sanchez via Twitter on Wednesday night when thinking about the matchup.

So. Much. Shade.
Let’s not forget that Burress caught 45 passes for 612 yards and 8 touchdowns from Sanchez with the 2011 Jets.
It’s hard to argue with Plaxico, though. Sanchez is not an NFL-caliber starting quarterback anymore. Washington will be in bad shape as long as they need to play him.
