"He's doing a lot of this for the first time," Sanchez said. "If you think about it as a defensive coordinator, these guys stay up all night and they try to wreck your day on Sunday. These guys aren't knuckleheads. They know what the hell they're doing."
"Hearing about his story for the first time really makes you understand how fortunate we are and how fragile your career is," quarterback Mark Sanchez said at the time. "These moments you have on the plane, hanging around in the locker room, having fun with guys, going to eat, playing on the field, it's pretty special. It can end at any moment. That was just a good reminder for us of how fortunate we are."
