Jets coach Rex Ryan surprised Sanchez during a team meeting on Wednesday morning. A few coaches prepared a “Tale of the Tape” comparing Ryan and Sanchez that looked unfavorably at Sanchez’s chances of winning in a fight.
“My keys to victory were ground and pound,” Ryan said.
The Jets head coach, whose fighting record was listed at 1,000-0, said he didn’t expect to ever pull Sanchez from the lineup.
“I don’t anticipate it. With the way Mark has elevated his play, I don’t think I’ll ever have to pull him,” Ryan said.
