QB Mark Sanchez looks comfortable, sharp at first practice with Jets. Sanchez was the first QB selected by the Jets with one of the draft's first five picks since Joe Namath went #1 overall in 1965. With the franchise starving for its first Super Bowl title since Namath won one in 1969, Sanchez faces exorbitant expectations. "It's about this team right now, with full respect to the history here," Sanchez said, brushing away any suggestions that the team's history could become a burden on him. "Coach Ryan came in and we're looking forward." Sanchez will compete with Kellen Clemens for the starting job, and Ryan is unfazed by the prospect of having a rookie QB open the season as the starter for the first time in franchise history. No, not even Namath.
