Eagles OTA practice notes, June 9, 2015: Mark Sanchez playing well, but needs to do more - PhillyVoice
Mark Sanchez has looked good at OTAs. He had a really nice throw on a deep post to Riley Cooper, who beat Byron Maxwell. Still, Sanchez is going to have to do more than play well in training camp and the preseason to earn a starting job.
The Eagles' new quarterback seemingly excelled at everything during his Oklahoma upbringing: football, hockey, basketball, baseball, golf, life. - Daily News
It's easy to underestimate Sam Bradford. His altar-boy face and quiet demeanor effectively hide a competitive fire that always has burned white-hot in whatever one of the myriad sports Kent and Martha Bradford's only child happened to be playing.
Chip Rippers - Iggles Blitz
Can you say "delusional"? Conditioning was hardly the primary cause for the Eagles loss to Seattle. Mark Sanchez was 10-20-96 yards. The offense struggled to move the ball all game long. There were wide open receivers in that game. Sanchez either didn’t see them or failed to get the ball to them. He’s not the only reason the Eagles lost, but you aren’t going to beat one of the best teams in the league with your backup QB very often. Physicality??? The defense held Marshawn Lynch to less than 90 yards and only 3.74 yards per carry. The run defense had a pretty good day. Russell Wilson made plays with his arm and legs. The Eagles had no answer for him.
Earl Wolff, Chip Kelly And the Knee - Birds 24/7
Earl Wolff still experiences pain in his right knee. He said it only hits when he makes certain movements and it’s "nothing crazy," but it’s there and serves as a signal that he is not all the way back. The third-year safety out of N.C. State acknowledged that he expected to be full-go by this point. Still, Wolff says he has been making big strides lately and feels quite confident that he’ll be back to his old self by training camp.
Jason Peters aims to prove he can return to form - CSN Philly
When Jason Peters gives up a sack, it’s newsworthy. When he gives up a couple, it’s shocking. When he plays the way he did late last year — at 33 years old, in his 11th NFL season, coming off two Achilles surgeries — it’s natural to wonder whether Peters is starting to decline. Peters remembers every one.
Brett Brown and Chip Kelly probably drank beers together in college - The 700 Level
"Many years ago, and it truly is many years ago, [Chip] roomed with my closest high school friend at the University of New Hampshire and I was down the road at Boston University," Brown said. "My friend went to UNH on a football scholarship and played with Chip and they roomed together. Often times you would make the road trip from BU down to UNH to say hello and enjoy good times as all 20-year-old would enjoy. To look back, I spent 17 years overseas, following Chip with all of his college success and then me coming back to the United States, for us to end up in the same city is quite unique."
Matt Barkley At QB: Remember Him? - PE.com
Not long ago he was the quarterback in the center of the media frenzy. Now Matt Barkley walks off the field after an OTA session and stops for a single reporter to have a conversation.
Tony Romo's fantasy football event was canceled because the NFL is vindictive and boring - SB Nation
The NFL proved, once again, that it has a terrible sense of fun, if not a willful lack of care about its fans.
