Last night before the Jets first preseason game, Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan laughed off the GQ quotes about Sanchez wanting to fight Rex Ryan after he considered benching him last season.
“Was I gonna fight Rex? Obviously not,” Sanchez told Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News when asked about his comments to GQ in a cover story for this month’s issue. “It would be like George Foreman and (Oscar) De La Hoya. He’s way out of my weight class.”
“I heard he wants to fight me, but that’s a long line,” Ryan said. “Just stay right there. I think he’s still behind Channing Crowder. But that’s what you want. You want that guy who’s competitive. I wanted to send a message that we can bench anybody on this team – with the exception of (Darrelle) Revis obviously.”
