Mark Sanchez may or may not feel like he’s going to be the starting quarterback for the Jets, but he definitely can’t afford to show any signs of lacking confidence.

Sanchez, who is playing for his NFL life, told the Los Angeles Times that things "will turn around" in New York and that the Jets will make the playoffs"

“[I]t will turn around. We’ll get back on track, get a couple wins, and once we get in the playoffs this year we’ll make a little run. That’s all you need to do is make your run, get hot at the right time, stay healthy.”

Sanchez, who is trying to remain coy, said he is keeping an eye on what Geno Smith does, but he doesn’t obsess over their competition.

“I’m unaffected by what Geno’s doing. I think he’s a good player. I think he plays well. But it doesn’t really matter. I’m trying to beat the defense, and if I’m worried about Geno and it inhibits me, then I’m hurting myself.”

Sanchez was given the starting nod yesterday for Friday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions. We'll see how he performs.
