Third-year Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez rocks the V-neck sweater on the September 2011 cover of GQ Magazine. Inside, he's rocking no shirt in one photo and says he once wanted to fight Rex Ryan.

Here are some highlights, provided by GQ:

Mark Sanchez on Rex Ryan, after his coach told reporters he might bench Sanchez following a loss to Miami:

“Rex is super honest...I wish he wasn’t that honest at times, especially to say that.”

“I wanted to fight him. I was really mad.”

On when Brian Schottenheimer informed him that Ryan wanted to give extra reps to backup QB Mark Brunell:

“I was like, ‘He can come tell me. And [Schottenheimer] is like, ‘Come on, man, don’t do that.’ ”

On feeling a kinship with Broadway performers:

"Their life is so regimented - like mine. They have eight shows a week. They have to take care of their bodies, stretch, eat right, take care of their voices. You know, their voice is like my arm."
