Remember when the Jets were the Eagles back in 2009? Sanchez and Mariota parallels

The reports are EVERYWHERE! Sources galore! It’s a done deal! If Mariota is available at six, the Jets won’t take the Oregon signal caller. Why? Because Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles will be trading up to get him. It’s a deal the Jets won’t be able to refuse. Plus, the Jets just aren’t that into Marcus. So the rumors and scenario goes…as we sit a month and a...

Three Key Eagles Free Agents in 2015

The Eagles finished 10-6 in a competitive NFC conference in Chip Kelly’s sophomore year on the sidelines, and many fans have to thank for the cheapest and most readily available NFL tickets around. However, there’s still a lot to build on for this team that showed flashes of dominance, but nevertheless missed the playoffs by a game. There are three looming free...

Eagles appear to be front-runners to sign Byron Maxwell

Byron Maxwell is one of the hottest names on the free agent market this offseason, and there are quite a few teams with a need at the cornerback position. He was a key piece for the Seattle Seahawks this past season, and is a tough playmaking cornerback. According to a report from Tony Pauline, the Philadelphia Eagles appear to be the front-runner to sign him at this point in time...

Five reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles should bring back Michael Vick

Right now it’s anybody’s guess who will be the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback next season. The rumor is that Chip Kelly is willing to deal Nick Foles in order to move up in the draft to get Marcus Mariota. If such a trade went through in theory Mark Sanchez would take over at QB1 (at least until the rookie is ready), but he’s a pending free agent and will likely...

NFL's 5 Best Free Agent Signings of 2014

There were a lot of teams in the free agent pool in 2014.  Some thought spending would make their team a contender.  Others had a team that was a contender and just wanted to get a little meaner. And then there were those who just threw money at players, yep they landed on my list of the NFL's 5 worst free agent signings. But some teams made surprisingly good choices.  Here...

Possible landing spots for top free agent quarterbacks

In the great game of professional football, no position can impact a contest more than the quarterback. The dictator of offensive dynamics, engineers of the aerial pass and architects of the game plan—quarterbacks are the lifeline between a team’s success and failure in the NFL. Think of the dollar amounts doled out to these gunslingers as opposed to other positions. Only 14...

3 quarterback draft options for the Philadelphia Eagles not named Marcus Mariota

In 2014 the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situation was anything other than perfect. It actually looked worse than it did in 2013 when Nick Foles threw for 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. This year Foles took a step back before he got injured and we got a glimpse of Mark Sanchez, who was average at best. Foles had a disappointing season in which he threw 13 touchdowns and...

Should the Philadelphia Eagles look to a familiar face for next quarterbacks coach?

Next year the Philadelphia Eagles may look radically different at the quarterback position on just about every level imaginable. First, we can safely assume that Mark Sanchez will sign a new contract with another team and therefore will no longer be the team’s primary backup. Second, the Eagles may be willing to sell the farm to draft Heisman winner and Chip Kelly favorite Marcus...

Philadelphia Eagles: The Marcus Mariota markup

Another year of offseason football talk, another round of hollow draft talk with no legs and lots of hot air. A majority of Eagle fans are hoping for one thing when it comes to Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. dishing out mock draft 15.2 and that is to have Marcus Mariota drop…a lot. When Mark Helfrich and Chip Kelly extended a scholarship to Mariota back in 2010, they knew they were...

Rex on Sanchez reunion in Buffalo: I still got the tattoo

While it certainly wasn’t a confirmation that new Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan would consider bringing in Mark Sanchez to his new team and facilitate a reunion with his former “Sanchize” quarterback with the New York Jets, Ryan did make a veiled comment that at least indicated he isn’t ruling it out.

Five myths about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles that need to be busted

The Philadelphia Eagles missed the playoffs after starting the 2014 season 9-3. They went 1-3 in their last three games, falling out of the division and wild card races during the final quarter of the season. During this stretch, Mark Sanchez was the starting quarterback as Nick Foles remained on the bench with a collarbone injury suffered against Houston earlier in the season. Sanchez...

Sanchez, special teams help Eagles snap Giants' three-game win streak

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez threw two touchdowns and the Philadelphia Eagles' special teams scored their seventh touchdown of this otherwise frustrating season in a 34-26 victory over the Giants on Sunday, in what could have been Tom Coughin's final game as New York's coach. Backup tight end Trey Burton returned a blocked punt 27 yards for a score in the third quarter,...

Sanchez to start vs. Giants— all we are saying is give Barks a chance…

Nick Foles (Quick Draw McGraw) and Mark Sanchez (Baba Looey) were okay as a QB tandem for Chip Kelly’s offensive system— but I’d like to see Matt Barkley showcased in Week 17. Chip Kelly is going to start Mark Sanchez at quarterback against the Giants and play his regulars. I wonder if this means Kelly plans to ride into 2015 with the status quo duo of Foles and Sanchez...
