Source: Eagles Interested In Mark Sanchez

USATSI_7398031_168380503_lowres
The Eagles are interested in quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to a league source, but there is still a hurdle or two to clear.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen says the Birds are expected to sign Sanchez, who was recently let go by the Jets. We were told that a signing is not yet imminent, mainly because there is still a medical evaluation process to go through. The 27-year-old missed the entire 2013 campaign after injuring his throwing shoulder in the preseason. He had labrum surgery back in October. The Jets designated Sanchez’s release as a “failed physical.”

Sanchez, a first-round pick (fifth overall) in 2009, started 62 games in five seasons for the Jets. He completed 55.1 percent of his passes, averaged 6.48 yards per attempt and threw 68 touchdowns against 69 interceptions. He has a career QB rating of 71.7.




The Jets released Sanchez on Friday and signed former Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. So, this could turn out to be what amounts to a Philly-New York QB swap.

Sanchez (6-2, 227) went 1-1 against Oregon in 2007 and 2008. He completed 65.2 percent of his passes and tossed five touchdowns against two interceptions. Chip Kelly was the offensive coordinator of those Oregon teams.

On Sunday, St. Louis head coach Jeff Fisher told the USA Today that the Rams were interested in Sanchez as well.

    Nooooooooooooo. I loved making fun of that guy.

      the butt fumble was epic.

          Nice shoulders. But the white stretch pants? Puke. Especially with a fur-lined winter jacket!

          • TripSquadMonopoly

            Nice shoulders? You mean those twigs hanging from his body? That’s what we men call “straight arm”

        • jesse

          Hey don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful lol

        • mtn_green

          That video is hilarious.

  • jabostick

    My initial and most trusted reaction to this news was that Howie lost a bet on the golf course.

    • mtn_green

      FO must have faith in Barkley.

  • Matt Broad

    I think they have to make this move. The ladies of South Philly have been very lonely since Pat Burrell left.

    • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

      Broncos ladies are sad now that Decker is gone…NY ladies have their replacement in place so all is still well in NY. Philly has Kendricks though so we ain’t crying too badly

  • jabostick

    I would also like to request Sheil or Tim do a cursory search and find out which current and terrible NFL free agents once had a decent game against Chip in college or high school so I know who to brace myself for.

    • jabostick

      In all honesty, this could be a decent ‘buy low’ signing as a backup.
      But I started the day hoping I might get some insight into why DeSean
      was run out of town. Instead we get Howie telling us to trust in their
      plan. Then they’re itching to sign Sanchise.

      It’s all caught me off guard

      • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

        Sanchez is way too soft and emo to play in Philly

        • Tikkit

          Soft and emo kids are offended

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      hey, at least we’re not filming other teams! Am I right?!? can i get an amen?

  • Brandon Baltic

    I can’t wait for the battle of the bad USC QBs in camp. Let’s call Leinart while we’re at it!

    Something tells me Chip is taking his love for Pac12 QBs a little too far.

    • TripSquadMonopoly

      The verdict is still out on Barkley I think its a little premature still. Though your chances of being right are pretty high. Id still like to think our last year 4th rounder was not wasted

  • Staur-XO

    I actually would love this move. He had some clutch performances with very little offensive talent around him.

  • RIP illa

    That pic says it all!!!

  • anon

    WTF?? I mean maybe b/c we don’t have enough picks to get a developmental guy, but of all people. And talk about high character guys you’re letting djax go but you’re signing this dude who in all his years in the NFL has never tried to get better, and is the laughing stock of the NFL – lost his job to Geno Smith and the QB you just let walk? Spent more time banging girls in NYC than on the practice squad and has lead the league in turnovers the last two years? Didn’t we just get rid of a guy thats TO prone? Didn’t we already have another guy that’s even worse with TOs?

    CK has SERIOUS pac-10 bias. I honestly thought we were ascending among the rest of the trash in the division, but this is some Jerry Jones level s*** from CK. Pete Carrol doesn’t even want the guy.

    • Honest_T

      To be fair Sanchez did take his team to the playoffs a couple of times, and had a different OC every year. Also, I’m pretty sure he beat Geno and then got injured.

      That said, the dude throws more interceptions than Eli!

      • anon

        Rex Ryan’s D and the run game did that.

        Here’s his stats from playoff years.
        2009 53.8 (completion %), 2,444 (yds) 12 (tds) 20 (ints) 63 (rating)
        2010 54.8, 3,291, 17, 13, 75.3
        2011 56.7, 3,474, 26, 18, 78.2 <– not a playoff year but by far his best statistically.

        He's never completed over 60% of passes in 4 yrs. Clearly not a student of the game.

        • http://www.idonthaveawebsite.com theedevilsadvocate

          well he has never had chip as his coach before now has he. mabye chip can maximize his potential…

  • Richard Colton

    Bold prediction: Eagles still draft a QB in the 5th or 6th round, and Brett Smith fights it out with the two Marks for back-up.

    • Javi Echie

      No faith in the legendary gj kinne?..lol

      • Richard Colton

        forgot about him – lets call it a 4 way fight

    • anon

      We do need a lot of camp bodies — i didn’t think about that. But don’t get excited when or DBs look like all-stars in camp this year.

    • Token

      Highly doubtful. Butt fumble isnt gonna sign here to be camp fodder. Hes almost assured the back up spot.

      • Richard Colton

        What’s the # he signed for? How much guaranteed? Let’s see that first.

        • anon

          Roto / PFT says multiple teams are interest, doubt it’ll be vet min unguaranteed.

          • oreofestar

            Unless he loves us :P

          • Burberry Manning

            Why why why even on the cheap side I Don’t think Sanchez fits our locker room culture….

          • Maggie

            Sure he does. He and Barwin can hit every oddball after-hours club in town together.

    • Maggie

      I’m liking Wyoming too. With serious reservations about the winters.

  • botto

    why cant we get pryor for djax?

    • anon

      This is what i thought was going to happen, pyor and a late round for djax, not great but better than getting this bum off the street. So much for only wanting gym rats.

    • Token

      Why in the hell would someone wants Pryor? Jesus.

      • anon

        You could easily change pryor with sanchez. Why don’t we just get vince young back. He’s seriously a better QB, probably more mature.

        • Token

          Well who wants either? Give me a UDFA over proven slop.

          • anon

            Yeah i saw this before your comment above — thought you were saying sanchez was better. I was like hold up, wait a minute.

          • Token

            O god no. I just hate not only keeping proven garbage like a Matthews, but then going out and BRINGING IN MORE proven garbage.

            Sorry, but it just reeks of a coach whose ego is just way out of whack to me. You gotta have ego as a coach, just the right amount. For sure. But im worried Chip may just be spilling over the top with it. Thats a bad thing. When you start buying into the idea that you are the star things can go south real quick.

          • anon

            Yeah, anyone that can win against is worth getting — i’m wondering whether he should be in charge of players as well.

            This also makes the djax thing looks like eagles FO is crazy.

          • Token

            Generally I dont like coaches having control over personnel. I think they have enough on their plate. Thats what you need a quality GM for. And so far id say Chips has been dicey on the personnel side.

      • botto

        he’s better then sanchez, he’s fast and chip could coach him up

        • Token

          O hes fast….. got ya.

          • oreofestar

            I would rather have Pryor but hell nah I am not trading assets for him, I am still hoping for good comp. for DJAX

          • Token

            Dude he runs fast! He can throw 50 yards from his knees!

          • Richard Colton

            hahaha. do you remember Jamarcus Russell doing the same thing? he’s available too. lets sign them both!

          • oreofestar

            Can we pick up Vince Young too….please!

          • OldDocRoss

            AND he’s down below 400lbs again!!!one1!

          • oreofestar

            Isn’t that all that matters :P

          • Tikkit

            Can we still get Kyle Boller?!?!?!

        • Maggie

          Better at what?

  • Token

    He may literally be the worst QB at the NFL level.

    And hes taking a roster spot from a late rounder or UDFA developmental guy. Ugh. If theres a plan to this ridiculous offseason im not seeing it.

    Let me guess, Mark had a big game against Oregon once upon a time………

    • G_WallyHunter

      lol ya Chip loved him 6 years ago..

    • Anonymous

      Sanchez isn’t even close to the worst QB in the NFL, quit exaggerating so much.

  • zonaeagle

    Could this be a prelude to trading Matt Barkley? He could be worth draft picks to whichever team wanted him in the last draft – maybe we are trading the old new USC QB for the new new USC QB

    • Token

      Barkley had nearly zero value in his draft, let alone now that theres NFL tape of him sucking.

    • anon

      Did you see MBs game tape? We can’t get anything done for djax even schaub is only worth a 6th in oakland.

    • zonaeagle

      At this point, we know the front office is looking for draft picks and more draft picks – especially to replace Desean – it does seem like weird timing that we only hear about Sanchez after the winter meetings began, right?
      Some random GM approaches Howie – ‘loved that Barkley kid, i’d give you a 5 (or 6 or 7) for him right now’ – also factor in that Bill Musgrave is more of the type of QB coach for this type of QB – read, pocket passer backed up by killer run game – this all seems to fit together too well – we shall see

      • oreofestar

        I know I am probably in the minority but if a GM offered a 6 for Barkley, I’d decline

        • JofreyRice

          A 6 of what? Natty Ice?

          • oreofestar

            6th rounder :P

          • Tikkit

            Natty Ice is too rich for that deal. Schlitz gets it done.
            Or a 12 of beast.

          • RIP illa

            I’d take that deal!

  • Mr. Wu

    oh ffs…lets get rid of Djax and sign Sanchez….then after that we can all bash our balls with a hammer

    • Rambler

      I am thinking that using the hammer before both of these things happen might actually help me be numb to them when they do occur.

    • Maggie

      Not “all” of us. If it helps, I can bash someone else’s, though.

  • oreofestar

    I hope 1. The Rams LOVE HIM or 2. He fails his physical

    • jabostick

      Or 2a. “Being terrible’ is a recognized medical condition

  • ztom6

    but but but I thought Chip wanted running quarterbacks!!

    • oreofestar

      yeah he Sanchez will have to do some Read option stuff, him and then we will get Vince Young and trade for Travaris Jackson you know we can not run this offense without a running QB

      • ztom6

        Joe Webb baby

        • oreofestar

          already signed

  • https://www.skinnypost.com/ GayleSaunders

    After reading this about Sanchez…I beg for more “Daily Desean” Man even for a backup QB the Eagles fanbase wants NO part of this move

  • GEAGLE

    We are signing Sanchez if he passes a physical, wtf am I even supposed to say about this? Feel like I’m being taunted into getting myself banned, after I just figured out how to minimize dopes so that their comments don’t appear on my screen..”your taunting me, your taunting Me, I’ll eat your kids”(in my best iron Mike, lisp while your nuts are stuck in a vice voice)

    • oreofestar

      I really really really hope he fails it

  • GEAGLE

    For those feeling crappy, go to PFT and read the story bout the saints GM who is worried about regretting trading Sproles to us…made my day a tad bit more manageable

    • oreofestar

      I saw, didn’t make me happy, crappy week

    • anon

      Thought that too — then i thought about DJAX…

  • GEAGLE

    Love how every national dope is laughing saying “bet eagles fans are going to love the Sanchez signing” I don’t enjoy being a national punchline

    • G_WallyHunter

      Ya, this is terrible, WHY???? just WHY?!??

  • hillbillybirdsfan

    I like it better when they sign talented players. This would definitely not be as much fun.

    • oreofestar

      Sanchez threw less interceptions than Foles last year he is a monster

      • OldDocRoss

        OTOH, I threw as many TDs as Sanchez.

  • oreofestar

    Lol kids on Bleacher Report saying we will go winless for Mariota

    • George

      Lol theyre dumb if they think that

  • EaglefaninAZ

    It’s that whole Chinese curse thing again. “May you live in interesting times”. Gawd… I love this team.

    • OldDocRoss

      If you’re looking for interesting, head over to Lawlor’s where the glorious commenter that is shah8 has been explaining why Sanchez is better than not only Matt Barkley, but also Nick Foles.

      Seriously.

      • Andy124

        That troll needs to be starved to death. I do miss down votes at times like this. Not just so I can down vote something, but because it’s fun to see a large number next to the down arrow.

        • OldDocRoss

          But he seems so sure of himself!

          I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone so unconcerned about the wealth of empirical evidence against him.

          I think his high point was when he argued Mark Sanchez could run an NFL offense, just……not well.

          • Andy124

            They seem to like him over there in some weird way. Kind of like their very own pet troll. Some here liked Dutch too, so it much be some weird internet phenomena. Trollphilia.

          • OldDocRoss

            I think he honestly believes though. He’s been stunningly, provably wrong on multiple occasions but he keeps coming.

            Any self respecting troll would have just come back with a few socks by now. He keeps on with the same hilariously discredited username hoping some day he’ll be proven right. It’s wonderful.

            One day they will write thesis on him. Until then, he will always be full of shah8.

          • Andy124

            Last line = pure gold.

          • OldDocRoss

            You’re welcome to steal it, claim it as your own! I feel confident he isn’t smart enough to figure it out.

            And I’m waaaaaaay to lazy to comment on two blogs. Although a few guys over at Tommy’s are hilarious. I’m just that lazy.

          • RIP illa

            I don’t understand his Joe Webb love. What’s up with that?

          • RIP illa

            Hey, I liked Dutch. Didn’t agree with everything he said, but he was entertaining. Seriously tho, I can respect anyone who challenges the norm or group think more than I can sheep, to a certain degree.

          • Richard Colton

            once you understood who/what Dutch was, he was hysterical. Watching new people try to have a rational conversation with him was worth the price of admission.

          • cliff henny

            never was able to detect sarcasm, either. so could really get him going down a rabbit hole.

          • RIP illa

            Oh man, that was the coup de grace!!! I loved seeing that stuff. They would get so flustered and I would just sit back dying laughing. Honestly despite, all the bs he said and the rare profound gem(s)…I loved reading his stuff…some of the most fun I had on here. I couldn’t even get mad at him, like some, was too busy laughing. I wish he was back.

            nothing wrong with mark sanchez that we havent already experienced with vick. if anything we are getting the better qb. mark sanchez has been to two count them two! nfc championship games! where as vick has only been to one! lol now stop your complaining all of yews. bunch of whinny bitches i swear…

  • ACViking

    On a serious note (GEagle, easy my friend), adding Sanchez would mean Kelly really does believe Barkley’s a quality NFL QB just waiting to happen.

  • Brian

    Why is everyone overreacting to this? He’s a backup. Let’s trade Barkley for a 4th round pick and move on.

    • anon

      That’s hilarious.

    • MoreViolence

      So Barkley’s worth more than DeSean? I mean i get the cap number associated. But Barkley for a fourth and DeSean..gets cut.

      • OldDocRoss

        I think it was a joke, but my sarcas-ometer could be off.

        • MoreViolence

          Lets hope cause if that happened I dunno what to think about the gm who gave up a fourth for Barkley this year.

    • oreofestar

      nobody is giving up a 4th for Barkley and to be honest I would need a 4th to move him

  • IAteLunchToday

    See, I think at this point Kelly and Howie are just trolling you guys. Maybe you don’t fit into Kelly’s ‘system’ of fans. Only he can’t cut you guys so he decided to sign Sanchez…

  • PhillySean

    I guess Pat Ryan isn’t available.

  • Andy124

    Prefer Kinne.

    • OldDocRoss

      Prefer herpes.

      • Andy124

        Ok, I am not with you there.

        • OldDocRoss

          You just don’t hate Sanchez enough.

          Give it time.

          • Andy124

            Yeah, if (when) he deprives Sir Kinne of playing time this preseason, the hate will grow.

          • OldDocRoss

            And then the hate will become so all-consuming that it will start to itch.

            And burn.

            And….I’ve taken this too far, huh?

          • Andy124

    why would we take sanchez over Vick i wonder?

    • Mike

      Vick chose to leave the Eagles to try and start for Jets…..Vick did not want to stay as Eagles back-up.

      • OldDocRoss

        Congratulations on your display of common sense.

        People who think the Eagles happily traded Vick should have their interweb privileges revoked.

        I’m not convinced their ability to roam the streets without supervision shouldn’t be under review as well.

        • oreofestar

          Indeed Vick was the ideal backup for the Eagles, athletic big armed veteran who knows the offense and we would feel comfortable coming in if he had too but Vick wanted to start and we can not offer him a starting job

        • botto

          yeha well he signed with NY and the coach says hes the back up so…. he could be the back up here.
          you’re so smart, but i didnt say it was a swap, guy.

            Yeha indeed! Share your excitement for life.

            The owner didn’t say he was the backup. Said the starter will work itself out. And they are hedging their bets. That’s why the 1 year deal at 5 mil. If he was def the backup deal would be for 2-3 years and 2-4 mil dollars a year.

    • OldDocRoss

      Because RACIST!

  • Mike

    Let Sanchez and Barkley compete in all the pre-season games, and see which one is best to be the back-up QB.

  • Amar (India)

    Oh, Thank God ! Now I’m 100% sure we are all part of a social experiment, or an internet version of a Hidden camera show.
    C’mon Howie, you got us good there.

      Ya, time to release the reports that it was all a hoax, or at least let it drag on until April 1st, come on Howie!

  • Matt

    This just in… “John David Booty and Mitch Mustain signed by eagles to check sodium in cafeteria relish and occasionally jerk off Nick Foles when his testosterone levels get too low”

  • TheCatalyst

    I think I’d rather sign Aaron Hernandez to play safety.

    • oreofestar

      guard

  • UKEagle99

    Sanchez? Really? C’mon I could break Ryan Leaf outta jail…

  • morganc

    Um, why? He sucks. I’m sorry but this is just retarded. He is terrible. Matt Barkley right now times 1000000 over this guy. I don’t care that he had two “serviceable” years; he was the only guy in the league more turnover prone than Vick. You cannot tell me we couldn’t get a better backup for less money than this schlub.

  • Warhound

    Something about Sanchez…..just never liked him.

    • oreofestar

      hair, interceptions I mean a lot of stuff not to like

  • daveH

    Sanchez is just way too much “abuse Philly” material for EVERYONE! cant take this move at all. now everyone in nfc wont be able to decide whom to bash more easily .. us or romo

    • oreofestar

      Well Sanchez won’t start so RG3-13, and Romo will still be bashed and Sanchez will now be the Eagles fan’s punching bag

  • Will

    God this guy is a lousy QB even for a back up give me Barkley…you wanna get rid of DeSean and sign Sanchez and we are a better team? Good Grief…..

  • Kev_H

    I’m happy with Barkley, who I think fits fine, but Sanchez is a good guy to have. He just had bad luck ending up with the Jets who are brutal when it comes to developing QBs. With that, he pulled off a lot of nice clutch game winning drives in late 2010 to lead the Jets to the playoffs and the conference championship game. He has the intangibles but just needs to be coached up properly.

    • anon

      2010? it’s 2014

      • Kev_H

        It’s the back up QB market. Getting a guy who is relatively young, talented, and has some NFL accomplishments under his belt is a good deal. I spent some time around the Red Ryan Jets over the years and that is a true clown show. I saw Sanchez’ first day in camp and he was the most mature, professional guy there. I think he got worse every single day he was there, as has Smith and as will Vick. I think it says a lot about what kind of player Sanchez is that he is seeking out the good coaching he never had rather than playing time.

  • DetmerWonAHeisman

    Might as well just go ahead and sign Terrell Pryor at this point too…..that way if this “Foles thing” just doesn’t pan out we’ll be OK…..

  • oreofestar

    Forget this want Oakland’s 2 and 5 use it on Bucannon and Dontae

    • cliff henny

      in order for kelly to draft 2 safeties, Kelly would need to get 5 2nds and 7 5th in the jax trade

      • EaglefaninAZ

        No problem. Over the next couple years they got that.

        • cliff henny

          by 2020, we’ll be all set at safety

      • oreofestar

        Well you know I consider Dontae a corner

        • cliff henny

          pretty sure he’s listed as S.

          • oreofestar

            Oh, I thought he was like a Joyner tweener type could be wrong though

          • cliff henny

            got rid of the tweener loving coach.

          • oreofestar

            Well those were just names I threw out I just think that Oakland has a GM who we could def. pry out that high 2 and 5 from

  • EaglefaninAZ

    We have Sproles. Huls will do that whole Mad Scientist thing and he’ll be our new deep threat. I’m sorta medicated with my back, so bear with me kids.

    • cliff henny

      what do the doc’s have you on, anything fun?

      • EaglefaninAZ

        I’m self medicating with alcohol and pot. Don’t even want pain meds. Sokay. They won’t give me none anyways. Too many addicts ruined it fer us most deserving folk. I get two injections Wed. so there’s that. I get two back surgeries and a new knee this year. Yay!

        • cliff henny

          man, sorry. by all means, get the good stuff. cant you just get a doc to give you the old sleep anxiety or stress/depression Xanax or perc bs prescription?

          • EaglefaninAZ

            I’ll plead mental illness regardless. Been denied SSI twice and shopping for wheelchairs as it happens. Mostly the nuts get it right off.
            Good news for everyone here is, I only have 2 more knee surgeries than Maclin. :-)

  • botto

    hey if Kelly thinks he’s good for us, what do we know?

    • IAteLunchToday

      I was kind of starting to feel that way about getting rid of Jackson, but bringing in Sanchez makes me think they are the crazy ones.

  • cliff henny

    think Howie got bored, opened up 24/7,read for about 45 seconds and said ‘i’ll show those pricks’

    • oreofestar

      That is probably the motive for everything they have done this offseason I still think a Kurt Coleman extension is on the way

      • cliff henny

        casey matthews is probably only guy who supports signing. Philly is going to dump-truck hate on Sanchez.

        • oreofestar

          Mark basically becomes what Nate and Kurt were with some Casey too all together

        • Weapon Y

          Philly is the one place that could be harder for Sanchez to play than New York. For great players, that doesn’t matter. For Sanchez, he’ll choke if the noise is too loud. He’s soft.

    • G_WallyHunter

      Most probable

      Why, football gods, does the butt fumble player that I’ve made so much fun of have to wear an Eagles jersey? WHY!!!

      • jshort

        Football gods think he looks good in green.

        • G_WallyHunter

          Jesus, go to green bay then they need a backup too, this blows, sproles is signed everyones happy and then things just start nosediving as far as the offseason goes.

          • jshort

            Football gods don’t like the yellow-orange pants.

          • George

            Dont seahawks need a backup too?

          • jshort

            or the blue highlights.

          • George

            Damn It

    • Weapon Y

      Think he got pissy that we’re putting him and Chip down for planning to get rid of DeSean?

  • anon

    You know Barkely has got to be thinking wtf.

    • cliff henny

      hope not. he should be thinking exactly what we are, sanchez sux

    • mtn_green

      He’s thinking “preseason competition for qb2 with Sanchez? I got this. “

  • Eagles4Life

    *Clicks link* *Laughs uncontrollably* *Cries in corner*

  • cliff henny
    • oreofestar

      yay?

      • cliff henny

        barkley’s Don, shoving Foles into lockers when Kelly’s not looking

        • jshort

          To put a Lawlor spin on it…Really bringing him in to be a RB…Foles is worried about having two feet hanging out his ass.

          • JofreyRice

            Haha, I can’t even imagine how he spins stuff like this. Must get tiring.

    • jshort

      No no, Foles and Sanchez!!

    • Michael Myers

      PEOPLE AROUND ME looking at me like im insane for laughing so much…spot on

      • Michael Myers

        im gonna watch this movie tonight

    • Dilwala_G

      OMG – there so totally has to be a section of people at the Linc for home games dressed up like np dynamite and Pedro if Sanchez is the backup – hilarious!

  • Weapon Y

    Now I really hope Barkley makes a huge leap in Year 2. I’m scared to death of what happens if Foles gets hurt.

  • Eagles1018

    Matt Leinart, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley. USC QBs don’t bode well in the NFL. PLEASE dear lord no……

  • John E. Zang

    Despite him being quite a bust I don’t mind this. If he come cheap, gets in a good supportive locker room with a formidable offense and great offensive coach, I think he may be able to improve his game. Let’s not forget how crumby the offenses he played in were, scheme and talent. I don’t really care either way but it’s worth a look. He’s still somewhat young in football years and has upside. He was dogged, some deserved, but the jets did virtually nothing to support him and his development and was put into a circumstance he was way over his head from the start.

    • John E. Zang

      It was obvious Rex was doing as his father did with Philly and ignoring the offensive side of the ball. They ran the ball right at you virtually every down with not much talent at RB to begin with along with a prehistoric “Marty Ball” scheme (son was offensive coordinator). It seemed like they just wanted him to complete a pass here and there on third downs. It was pathetic. The lack of emphasis on that side of the ball was glaring.

  • Bryan Isacoff
    • Michael Myers

      damn chip…buddy…that “im gonns whack this dude on the ass” smile is disconcerting…

      • Michael Myers

        but i love u and the sb win you WILL provide for my 73 year old pop….go eAGLES

  • Waffles

    Sources on the second floor of Nova Care say that since we are signing Sanchez we are trading Foles for a third. In fact, the Eagles decided a month ago they were going to trade Foles.

    – Philadelphia “reporting”

  • macadood
  • ia

    I can allready tell: he’s going to be a fan favorite!

  • Fly High

    All the nay sayers about this! I trust the gang at Nova Care/ They might be thinking some of these things –
    1. Barkley is my #2, but Sanchez is a good locker room influence. and I think he will be a good mentor, and for cheap, and for a #3 QB, we could do much worse.
    2. I have seen a lot of film of this guy, and he has all the tools. He has some faults and we think Chip can fix em. Barkley is not ready for #2 this year, maybe never will be. Sanchez could be an exceptional #2.

    • JofreyRice

      he’s basically a worse version of Rex Grossman. I don’t hate the idea of bringing in a vet behind Foles, but it says a lot about Barkley. He’s got NFL game-experience, and is a second year player who’s greatest professed attribute was experience and NFL-readiness. Ideally, I think you’d want to have Sanchez & Barkley battle for backup, and get your hands on a developmental QB that has some upside. Neither of the USC boys have much of that. My Kafka comparison for Barkley could prove to be pretty damn accurate. Tough to play QB with a noodle arm.

  • Michael Myers

    posted elsewhere by me but…lol..

    wow…hadnt seen the butt fumble before. my impression…thats it? got knocked on his ass and the butt of the ball hit the ground and popped out…hmmm. was expecting something much more incriminating for assholetude.
    oh well
    eagles…eagles…fyeah

  • Michael Myers

    maybe im drunk early, but this is by far the funniest thread by far that ive ever seen on here…wow
