It might be midnight, or some crazy early hour in the morning, but Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will text wide receiver Braylon Edwards with something he saw on film. It might be about something he saw on film, a way Edwards could wrest another two or three yards out of a play.

"He's been what they drafted him to be and he's still getting better," Edwards said.

Once Sanchez thinks of something that might help on the field, he can't wait to get it out to the receivers. It's part of embracing the leadership role, something offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has been trying to get the puckish quarterback to do since last year's rookie season.

The week wide receiver Santonio Holmes returned to the Jets after his four-game suspension, Sanchez sent a motivational text.

"I'll bring the popcorn, you bring the show. Let's go."
