While Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan is still trying to figure out who will run the huddle come the season opener, Sunday Styles checks in with the real quarterback controversy in town—could Mark Sanchez become the sex symbol that Joe Namath once was in the sixties? The Times says that the Jet rookie is "arguably even better looking" than Broadway Joe. Madison Avenue appears eager to dig its claws into the 22-year-old—how long will it be before he becomes a friend of the mocha frap the way Joe once had an old pal in Ovaltine? But advertisers aren't the only ones who wanna get their paws on the gunslinger who's already done a topless GQ spread and is known to friends as "Dirty Sanchez." The Post says, “Walking sex has a new name. The succulent Sanchez is bona fide cougar bait.” The Times thinks that Sanchez could be in Tom Brady Territory in terms of how his appeal sizes up with the current crop of quarterbacks, adding, "Michael Vick could have had it, but glamour cannot abide dogfighting."
