LB: 'Sweet nothings' for Mark Sanchez
By Tim MacMahon
Dallas Cowboys backup outside linebacker Victor Butler had some fun at the expense of New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and his celebrity persona on Tuesday night.
Butler, appearing on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM's "Off with the Helmets" show, poked fun at "Sexy Sanchez" and gave the Jets' quarterback a gentle jab when asked if Sanchez was good.
"Oh yeah, good looking," Butler cracked. "How could you not want to sack a guy like that?"
The Cowboys open the 2011 season against the Jets on Sunday night.
Butler, whose Oregon State team upset Sanchez's top-ranked USC squad in 2008, eagerly awaits the opportunity for a little post-sack interaction with the celebrity quarterback.
"If the refs give me enough time, maybe I'll whisper a couple of sweet nothings in his ear," Butler said. "I have his GQ if he wants to sign it for me. I'd really like that. I really want him to sign the cover of this for me. It'd be nice."
