Warm-Weather Sanchez Will Wear Wool in Helmet Sunday

New, comments

On Sunday, Sanchez will be playing in his first game with a temperature below 40 degrees. The So-Cal boy's previous low was at home against Buffalo when the temperature was 44 degrees -- a game in which he threw five interceptions.

To help cope with the weather, he will be wearing a customized helmet which contains wool embedded into its padding. This soft material is very similar to the "Ugg" boots that women wear.

"We put some of the UGG boot stuff in his helmet, so he’s going to be warmer," Rex Ryan said, referring to the wool-lined footwear. "I’m not kidding. Look at his helmet. He’s got some of that in there. We try to make sure our guys are comfortable and healthy and protected."

Now they've thought of everything!
