Mark Sanchez, former USC star and embattled New York Jets quarterback, is back in the news with a new video surfacing of him dancing in his home with his backside exposed.

Yes, the former Rose Bowl MVP and Orange County superstar who is infamously known for the "Butt Fumble" (video below) is now front and rear in a private escapade, although it appears the video has been removed from the Internet. Evidently, Sanchez enjoys streaking through his own parties and shaking his backside.

Which is dangerous in this age of digital -- and instant -- technology. When word of a video showing Sanchez doing a little dance at one of his parties made the rounds, former teammate Erik Ainge came to Sanchez's defense.

“Now it’s become a thing to try and catch Mark doing something stupid," said Ainge, who was with the Jets from 2008 to 2010 but retired to television work after never playing a down and battling  substance abuse. "He’s never breaking the law. Look at Aaron Hernandez; Mark Sanchez is child’s play in the NFL, as far as off-the-field stuff.

"I’d know as good as anybody -- what Mark does off the field is child’s play. He’s dumb about it. He’s stupid while being stupid. You have to be smart while being stupid, and he’s dumb while being dumb.”

Sanchez, who twice led the Jets to the AFC championship game, is in a battle to keep his starting job. Hopefully Coach Rex Ryan has a short memory and won't watch the video below of some of Sanchez's worst moments at the helm.
