Mark Sanchez Friday Press Conference

Here are some of the highlights of what New York Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez talked about Friday following the team's first practice of training camp at SUNY Cortland.

On how the first practice went...

Awesome, it was exactly what we wanted. You already alluded to it, the pace, the tempo, the excitement. That was perfect, exactly what Coach Sparano was preaching to us last night. I know he wasn't sleeping because he was screaming at us last night and getting us excited. That's the kind of attitude we need to play with and obviously we get results.

On if the offseason work he did with Santonio Holmes has helped them already...

Absolutely, not just the work, but every rep you can take obviously helps you down the line. I think it's just that attitude, the extra work we put in and the mentality that we put into it that we're ready to attack this thing together. We really worked on our communication this offseason and it looked great. It really did look great. He was running hard today, coming off the ball, firing off the ball and setting a really good example for the young wideouts.

On repairing his relationship with Santonio Holmes...

We're already almost in August now. This is late July. We're in training camp. That is so far behind us. I hadn't even thought about it until you brought it up. We've moved on from that.

On working with Coach Sparano for the first season...

It's good. It's good for all of us. He never takes a down off. That's the most important thing. Some coaches coach in the film room really well and not so much on the field and vice versa, but he will never take a down off. You're going to hear something either positive or negative. You have to work and prepare for it to be positive.
