Plax down on Sanchez Dan Leberfeld

Former Jets WR Plaxico Burress appeared on ESPN this morning.

He doesn’t seem particularly impressed with Mark Sanchez as a quarterback.

Can Sanchez take the Jets to a Super Bowl?

“I think the defense will,” Burress said. “I think they definitely have a Super Bowl defense.”

Burress admitted it was tough being a receiver on the Jets last year.

“As a starting wide receiver in the NFL, you walk out there on Sunday and line up … it’s not Peyton Manning back there,” Burress said.

Burress is currently a free agent.
