    The Jets hope Sanchez is more creative under fire than he is after scoring a touchdown.

    Any Jets fans worried that Mark Sanchez's GQ photo shoot is a sign that he's a little too interested in non-playing activities should take heart in the following video. Upper Deck brought together members of the NFL's 2009 rookie class for a photo shoot, and decided to have a touchdown dance contest afterward.

    Sanchez's skills, seen 40 seconds into the video, show that he's not blessed with creativity on the dance floor. Giants fans, on the other hand, should prepare themselves for some penalties should Ramses Barden (90 seconds in) or Andre Brown (2:15) turn into red zone weapons.

    One nagging question: Why does the winner get an autographed Michael Jordan jersey? Football is the one sport that Jordan didn't try to play and Upper Deck's gotta be able to get something signed by a prominent football player.

    At any rate, Barden looks like a comer even if the jersey wound up on the back of Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno.
