Not too long after being signed by the Philadelphia Eagles Mark Sanchez was already feeling better about his future. After some trying times as the quarterback for the New York Jets including the infamous butt-fumble, Sanchez thinks he is in a great position to learn from the best with the Eagles and coach Chip Kelly.
“I feel like (head coach Chip Kelly) really is on the cutting edge of the NFL and he’s one of those guys who really has an exciting vision for the future. I think he is on a constant pursuit of a competitive edge. He’s an excitable person. I think as an offensive mind, I’m going to do nothing but learn here working with offensive-minded guys, working with coach Kelly, (offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur), (quarterback coach Bill Musgrave). This is an incredible opportunity, so I’m really thankful to (Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie), to (general manager Howie Roseman) and coach Kelly.”
With Nick Foles entrenched as the starter, Sanchez will be competing with Matt Barkley for the backup role.
