Mark Sanchez told teammates he'd like to "Jets West" near his home in California. It made news, and a fair number of players attended.
Chad Henne told teammates he'd like to have a workout. No one responded. Then Jake Long said he was part of it, and a handful of players said they'd go, but as I hear it, they still haven't organized it.
Where's the difference? Leadership. Brees and Sanchez said they'd do it, and their team rallied around them, and they followed through. Henne said he was gonna do it, and it took his left tackle's leadership to bring players in, and apparently "they" didn't follow through.
