Sanchez taking sophomore slump on Dan Leberfeld

Cortland – So often in the NFL, quarterbacks struggle in their second season. This phenomenom is often referred to as “The Sophomore Slump.”
Mark Sanchez isn’t ignoring this syndrome, but instead staying cognizant of it, and taking it on the challenge with gusto.
“It’s part of the game,” said Sanchez. “It’s common for a lot of quarterbacks. It’s a
challenge. I mean, I don’t hate it, I don’t try and block it out. I’ll embrace
it and want to hear it. ‘Alright Sophomore Slump, I’ve got you Sophomore Slump,
we’ll see.’ That’s just my attitude. That’s directly from Rex (Ryan), that’s
me being a competitor and trying to have a little swagger about this position.
As a quarterback, you have to be tough and mentally tough. When somebody says
that, it’s like, ‘Alright, I got you.'”
The feeling here is that he won’t have a “Sophomore Slump.”
