Somehow, he's gotten this far in life not knowing how to slide.
After tweaking his knee on an awkward attempt Sunday, coach Rex Ryan did the only logical thing to get help for his young franchise signal-caller.
He called the world-champion New York Yankees and asked if anyone would be able to show Sanchez the ins and outs of getting down.
Next thing you know, manager Joe Girardi is imparting his wisdom at the Jets' practice facility.
Girardi had to work around the brace on Sanchez's left leg.
"We tried to help him learn how to slide on the other leg," Girardi said. "It's not an easy thing to do."
Sanchez said Girardi taught him how to "hook" the leg because "you don't want to hook that leg into the ground because it might get stuck.
Sanchez seemed to appreciate the one-on-one attention from the champ.
"It meant a lot to me personally for him to come out, take time out of his schedule . . . to help me out with something like sliding," Sanchez said. "There's nobody better to get coaching from than him, especially in this area.
"I've never really been a slider. In baseball, I slid head first. In football, I've done the same thing, or tried to get out of bounds or throw the ball away."
