When asked about the upcoming weeks heading into a new season, Sanchez replied "no doubt" and "sure, of course" when asked if he'd be the starting quarterback.
With the Jets having cut
The Jets have a new offensive coordinator in Marty Mornhinweg, a West Coast-style guru who Sanchez believes will fashion a scheme more suited to his talents. He's confident about the competition.
"There's a little fire going, and that's good," Sanchez said. "I think it's good for everybody."
And what will it take for him to secure his spot as a starter?
"Hopefully winning a bunch of games, that's really all I'm worried about," Sanchez said. "Whether it's a make-or-break thing? I feel that way every year. It should feel that way if you care about it. It's an exciting time."
And the hair? What's up with that?
"It's my inner-soccer player," Sanchez said of his slick-backed locks. "My hair's getting long. I'm going to donate it at some point."
