Good article on Mark as he works to fit in with the Jets.
Sanchez, competing with veteran Kellen Clemens for the starting job, had mixed results in his first week with the veterans.
"He had an excellent second day, let's start with the good," coach Rex Ryan said. "The bad was the first day and the ugly was part of today. We're kind of throwing him to the wolves."
And Sanchez started the feeding frenzy himself after posing for photos for the current issue of GQ, including a bare-chested shot with supermodel Hilary Rhoda. Another included the former Southern California star running along a beach in a red lifeguard swimsuit.
"I sure lobbed one up for them to hit it right out of the park," Sanchez said, laughing. "It was good. They had some good pictures up in the locker room. It was funny. They called me David Hasselhoff and all that."
Sanchez said the shoot took place about two months ago — before the draft — and addressed the perception that maybe he's spreading himself too thin.
Mark has his work cut out for him. New York Fans are some the most difficult to deal with in regards to expectations and Mark is already finding out the differences in the pro game already.
He will be fine but it won't happen over night.
