Mark Sanchez said he doesn't envision himself not being the starting quarterback of the New York Jets this season, according to the New York Daily News.

Asked about the possibility of not being the Jets starter (presumably if rookie Geno Smith wins the job), Sanchez said, "I don't see that happening."

Sanchez added, “I’m planning on playing, I’m planning on starting.”

That's not to say that Sanchez isn't rooting for Smith as a teammate or any of the other quarterbacks for that matter.

“I root for other guys. I root for Greg (McElroy), I root for Matt Simms, I root for Geno.”
