When asked about whether or not he learned about his team, Mark said he already knew that they could play:
I know we’re a special group. I’ve known that from the jump, but I think we’re starting to realize it. It’s important to keep this whole thing in perspective. It’s a great way to start, it’s exactly what you want in your home opener, but we’ll celebrate this one for a couple more hours, then, we’ve got to get ready for Pittsburgh, because that’s going to (be) another tough challenge (and) on the road, (it is) never an easy place to play. So, we’ve got a lot to go here.
Mark is showing the confidence that a leader should. He must sound confident in his teammates, as to be ready to lead them where they need to go. He also doesn’t let them get too confident either. He is already talking about Pittsburgh for next week. Look ahead, keep the team focused. That is your mature leader, New York Jets fans.
