Daily News exclusive with Mark Sanchez about the booing Dan Leberfeld

Cortland – New York Daily News columnist Manish Mehta had an exclusive interview with Mark Sanchez on Monday, and here is more of what the quarterback told the writer about the booing he received on Saturday night at the Green-and-White Scrimmage.

“What do you do?” Sanchez told Mehta. “What should I say? I can’t sit there and pout. There’s no point. That’s not going to get me anywhere. The more time I spend worrying about that, maybe I don’t realize why I threw the interception. . . . If I’m getting booed, I’m not going to change anybody’s opinion in the 30 seconds I’m allowed to pout. . . . It’s this spiral. Why even go down that road?

“If it hurts you or bothers you or affects you on the next play, then you shouldn’t play this position,” he said. “You have enough inside of you and enough mental makeup to put yourself out there. If you can’t handle the criticism, then don’t do it.”
