How would Kyle Orton fit as Nick Foles’ backup?

On Monday we published our review of the Eagles situation at quarterback heading into training camp. While it’s obvious that Nick Foles will be the starter the backup situation is a major question mark (Sanchez that is.) There are many observers who believe that Sanchez is unfit to play quarterback at the pro level and I’m not inclined to disagree with them. Fortunately a solid...

Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie ranked top-10 in the NFL

Mark Sanchez understands new role

There is no debate: Nick Foles is the No. 1 quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Mark Sanchez knew that when he chose to sign with the Eagles in the offseason. Once a longtime starter for the New York Jets, Sanchez is competing with Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne to be the backup for Foles. “I don’t lose sleep over it,” Sanchez told the Delaware County Daily Times. “It’s...

Sanchez not fully healthy, looks to be top backup

It’s always an amusing exchange, even if you already know the setups and the deliveries and the punchlines. It’s been going on for a year now. You can see it coming. Last season, most of the questions about who was winning what job -- the player handicapping that becomes all consuming during OTAs, minicamps and training camp -- focused primarily on the quarterbacks. The starting...

Mark Sanchez reportedly struggling during workouts

Nick Foles wasn’t in any danger of losing the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback job this summer, but thanks to Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley it sounds like his job is safer than ever.

Barkley, Sanchez have some adjusting to do with the Eagles

Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley have a lot in common; chief among their similarities is a love-hate relationship with being an NFL backup quarterback. But at the moment, that job is the best the Eagles have to offer. Sanchez and Barkley, though, enter the competition to be Nick Foles' backup from opposite directions. After five seasons with the New York Jets (mostly) as the starter...

Philadelphia Eages: Mark Sanchez says “I’m Just Entering the Prime of My Career”

Despite leading the New York Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship Games in 2009 and 2010, Mark Sanchez never really put up big numbers as a starting quarterback.
