Chip Kelly says Sam Bradford worth the injury risk


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Quarterback Sam Bradford has played seven games over the past two seasons while getting his left ACL repaired twice. Eagles coach Chip Kelly, who traded for Bradford, said he is not overly concerned about the injury risk.

"Look at our starting receiver last year [Jeremy Maclin], who had 85 catches," Kelly said at the NFL owners meetings, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Look at the year he had coming off of two ACLs.

"Look at our center. Jason Kelce had an ACL right before I got there and had a sports hernia in the middle of last season, and still made the Pro Bowl. Our left tackle [Jason Peters], who is arguably a Hall of Famer, has had two Achilles' [injuries] and is playing at an outstanding level.

"I would say it's easier for a quarterback with a knee injury [to come back] than a shoulder injury, as we went through the history of it. We didn't bring Sam in to run the ball 75 times a game. I think it's a lot easier for a quarterback with an ACL than it is for a receiver with an ACL. The history in terms of sports science right now and what doctors are doing is unbelievable."


Report: Eagles willing to deal Matt Barkley for late-round pick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) The Eagles would trade third-year quarterback Matt Barkley for a late-round draft pick, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Barkley has appeared in four career games, accounting for five turnovers and zero touchdowns.

Report: Eagles plotting to move up to grab Marcus Mariota


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) The Eagles will try to move up from their draft slot at No. 20 to snag quarterback Marcus Mariota and reunite him with coach Chip Kelly, who coached Mariota for his first two years at Oregon, reports The Star-Ledger.

The paper quoted a source familiar with the team's plans: "Can it happen? I don't know, but they're going to try."

Kelly recruited Mariota, once called him "the most talented kid I coached in college," and correctly predicted Mariota would win the Heisman when he saw him as a freshman, the paper noted.

Mariota could go as high as No. 1 overall and likely won't fall out of the top five, so Philly might have to give up as many as three first-round picks -- or a similarly rich package of picks and players -- to pull it off, per the paper. However, Kelly is now in control of personnel, answering only to owner Jeffrey Lurie.

"That makes it a little easier," the source told the paper. "There isn't anyone in Kelly's way."

Such a blockbuster move would show the Eagles are not committed to Nick Foles as their long-term starter. Foles was exceptional in 2013, throwing 27 touchdowns and two interceptions, before a so-so 2014 season that was cut short by a broken collarbone.


Eagles' Nick Foles: I expect to be the QB in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles told reporters Monday he expects to be the quarterback in 2015, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

"They can draft whoever they want to, they can bring in anybody," Foles said, per Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. "I'm going to compete, I'm going to be here. I'm not going to shy way from that.

"I've played this game long enough, you're going to compete, you're going to fight for your job every single year. Nothing is guaranteed in this league and I have to be the best possible player next year to help us win.

"The most important stat is winning the game. Whatever happens, I'm going to be here, I'm going to be ready to compete, I'm going to be ready to fight."

Foles signed a four-year, $2.769 million contract in 2012 and is due to be a free agent in 2016. He declined to comment when asked about seeking an extension. Foles is eligible for one after the season.

Foles tossed 27 touchdowns and two interceptions in 2013, but took a bit of a step back in 2014 before his season was cut short due to a broken collarbone. He threw for 2,163 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games before getting hurt. Mark Sanchez took over for Foles and went 4-4 with a 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The Eagles finished 10-6, falling just one game shy of a playoff spot.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez sharp in Week 17 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) In what might have been his last game with the Eagles, quarterback Mark Sanchez hit 23 of 36 passes for 292 yards and two touchdowns with an interception against the Giants. Sanchez added 22 yards on seven rushes while leading Philly to its fifth win since replacing the injured Nick Foles.

Sanchez was on a one-year contract, so he's set to hit free agency. He accounted for 15 touchdowns and 14 turnovers in nine games.


Eagles QB Nick Foles will not play season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said during his Monday news conference that quarterback Nick Foles will not play Sunday's season finale against the Giants, per the Delaware News Journal. Foles left Week 9 with the injury and has not been able to return. With the Eagles out of playoff contention, his season ends with 2,163 passing yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly: Mark Sanchez is our quarterback Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said on Sportsradio 94WIP in Philadelphia that he'll start Mark Sanchez against the Giants in Week 17, per Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.

Sanchez has been picked off 10 times since taking over as the starter in Week 9. He threw a costly interception at the end of Saturday's 27-24 defeat to Washington that ruined Philadelphia's postseason hopes. The Eagles won't rush Nick Foles back from a collarbone injury now that Philadelphia was officially eliminated following Dallas' win over Indianapolis on Sunday.

"Mark's our quarterback, and I thought Mark played a really good game [Saturday]," Kelly said. "He goes 37 of 50, he was 36 of 49 before that last pass.

"I'm sure he wants that pass back, everybody wants that pass back, but I think Mark played a good game and we'll continue to go with Mark."

Philadelphia is a 4-point favorite at N.Y. Giants.


Mark Sanchez shows matchup matters


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) Couple off a couple poor performances, including a 96-yard effort against the mighty Seahawks in Week 14, Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez was able to take advantage of a favorable matchup Week 16 at Washington, throwing for a season-high 374 yards on 37-of-50 passing. He had two touchdown passes and one interception.

Of course, that was against a defense that has now allowed 33 touchdown passes while recording just six interceptions. Not surprisingly, the Redskins have surrendered the highest passer rating to opposing quarterbacks this season.

When you look at it that way, it's almost disappointing Sanchez had just two touchdown passes while still throwing an interception. Since taking over for an injured Nick Foles in Week 9, he has only two more touchdown passes (12) than interceptions (10), so for all the yardage he piles up on a prolific offense, he's still in many ways the unstable quarterback who used to start for the Jets.

He's capable of taking advantage of a favorable matchup, of course, but his matchup Week 17 against Dallas isn't so favorable that you should automatically start him in Fantasy. In standard 12-team leagues, you can probably do better.


Late INT proves to be costly for Mark Sanchez, Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez threw a costly interception that may have ruined Philadelphia's postseason hopes in a Week 16 loss to Washington.

Sanchez had a chance to break a 24-all tie but was picked off by Bashaud Breeland with 1:36 remaining in the game. He also lost a fumble on the opening drive of the game. Sanchez hooked up with Riley Cooper for a 3-yard score in the second quarter and again for 16-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

He compiled 374 yards through the air while completing 37 of 50 pass attempts. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 99.9 passer rating in a 27-24 defeat.

With the loss, the Eagles need to win their final game against the Giants and have Dallas lose the final two games of the season in order to make the postseason.


Eagles QB Matt Barkley feels 'light years ahead of last year'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Eagles second-year quarterback Matt Barkley has thrown one pass this season and has not taken any first-team snaps in practice, reports Philly.com. But as the No. 2 quarterback behind Mark Sanchez, Barkley is an injury away from playing.

He said he feels ready, should that situation arise.

"I feel like I’ve grown a lot," Barkley told the webiste. "I have. My comfortability with the receivers and our personnel. The knowledge of the offense. I feel light years ahead of last year – that’s for sure."


Report: QB Nick Foles' collarbone only 70 percent healed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' broken collarbone is only 70 percent healed, and there's no way he'll play in either of the team's final two regular-season games, reports Sportsradio 94WIP. Foles suffered the injury Week 9.

Per the report, Mark Sanchez will finish out the regular season and Foles would only have a chance to return if Philly makes the playoffs.


Maybe Mark Sanchez not worth the trouble


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) When Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for just 96 yards against the Seahawks in Week 14 after averaging 300.5 in his first four starts in place of Nick Foles, it was thought to be just a product of the matchup. After all, the Seahawks had allowed an average of 116.0 passing yards in their previous three games, looking once again like a world championship-caliber defense.

But with what seemed like a favorable matchup Week 15 against Dallas, a team that entered the week ranked 25th against the pass, Sanchez again laid an egg, but a different kind. He threw two interceptions with no touchdown passes, completing 17 of 28 passes for 252 yards.

Looking back at his numbers, Sanchez still seems to be as mistake-prone as ever. For all the success he's had replacing Foles, he has just 10 touchdown passes to nine interceptions. He's thrown two picks in four of his seven games this year.

The Eagles offense is prolific enough that he figures to have good yardage when he's not facing the Seahawks, but the interceptions could keep him from performing like a top-12 quarterback down the stretch. Of course, he's facing the Redskins in Week 16, who've allowed the most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, but just how willing are you to gamble on something like that this time of year?


Don't lose faith in Mark Sanchez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2014) Mark Sanchez, who has started at quarterback for the Eagles since Nick Foles went down in Week 9, looked like he might be in for a rude awakening against the Seahawks last week, but 10 completions for 96 yards went beyond even the most pessimistic projections.

But again, he was facing the Seahawks, which counts for a lot more now than it did at the start of the season. They're back to playing world champion-caliber defense, allowing an average of 107.5 passing yards in their last four games. Yes, that's the average for a four-game stretch. They're making every quarterback look like Kurt Kittner.

Sanchez averaged 300.5 passing yards in his first four starts for the Eagles -- better even than what Foles was doing -- and leads one of the league's most explosive offenses. Prior to Week 14, the Eagles ranked fourth in both yards and points per game. You shouldn't be afraid to use him Week 15 against the Cowboys. They rank only 25th against the pass, allowing 251.9 yards per game, and he just put up 22 Fantasy points against them two weeks ago.

It doesn't mean you have to start him -- both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank at least 12 quarterbacks ahead of him for Week 15 -- but if you had gotten used to starting him, don't let his Week 14 performance be the reason you stop.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has a tough time Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez had a tough time Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Sanchez completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception and was sacked three times during the contest. Sanchez's first touchdown came as the result of a turnover. Following a fumbled punt, the Eagles took over at the 14 yard line. A few plays later, Sanchez found Jeremy Maclin on a 1 yard touchdown pass. His other score also came with somewhat of a short field. This time, though, Sanchez struck from 35 yards out, finding Zach Ertz on the play. Other than that, Sanchez was mostly limited against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. Sanchez also had 7 rushing yards.

He'll take on the Cowboys Week 15. 


Not the week to start Mark Sanchez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) With the way Mark Sanchez has performed since taking over as the Eagles quarterback in Week 9 -- contributing two touchdowns, either rushing or passing, in four of his five games -- you're probably itching to get him in your lineup even at a weak position. But Week 14 isn't the time to do it, not with the Seahawks coming to town.

The Seahawks rank third against the pass, giving up 199.4 yards per game and, even worse, have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. They've been especially stifling lately, allowing less than 150 passing yards to the last three quarterbacks they've faced.

The Eagles have a prolific offense, ranking fourth in both yards and points per game, so they have as good a chance as any team of overcoming the numbers, but why force the issue at a position where you probably have a strong alternative?

Going by Jamey Eisenberg's and Dave Richard's rankings, you'd have to play in a 16-team league to consider starting Sanchez this week.


Eagles coach Chip Kelly: Nick Foles' collarbone not fully healed


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed that quarterback Nick Foles underwent a CT scan on Friday. He told reporters Monday that Foles' collarbone is healing, but not completely healed, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. He will be examined again before receiving clearance to play. A recent report from the Philadelphia Daily News has Foles sidelined for two-to-four weeks.

Due to the recent success of Mark Sanchez, it remains to be seen if Foles will regain the starting job in Philadelphia.


Report: Eagles QB Nick Foles will ramp up strengthening work


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles underwent a CT scan, which showed he's "healing as expected," a source told Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News on Friday. Bowen added Foles isn't ready to take a hit yet, but following Friday's CT scan, he will be cleared to start ramping up his strengthening work.

Foles has missed four consecutive games after suffering a broken collarbone Week 9 against Houston. A timetable for his return remains uncertain.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has big first half in easy win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez did almost all his damage in the first half of Thursday's 33-10 rout at Dallas, throwing for 202 yards and accounting for two touchdowns. He finished 20 of 29 for 217 yards and a touchdown and ran five times for 29 yards and another score.

After committing six turnovers in his previous two games, Sanchez did not have a turnover Thursday.

Sanchez came out on fire. He led the Eagles to 80- and 88-yard touchdown drives on their first two possessions. Sanchez capped the first march with a 2-yard keeper off a zone read, and he ended the second with a 27-yard scoring strike to rookie Jordan Matthews.

Sanchez plays the Seahawks in Week 14.


Eagles QB Nick Foles could have follow-up exam this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that quarterback Nick Foles is expected to have a follow-up exam for his collarbone injury "this week or next week, I'm not sure." According to the Delaware County Daily Times, Foles is "doing good" in his recovery from the injury. 

Eagles QB Mark Sanchez posts third straight 300-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez registered his third consecutive game with at least 300 passing yards, leading his team to a comfortable 43-24 victory over Tennessee in Week 12. Prior to this season, Sanchez never had two consecutive 300-yard games.

Sanchez hooked up with James Casey for a 14-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He compiled 307 yards through the air while completing 30 of 43 pass attempts. He added one touchdown, two interceptions and finished with a 78.3 passer rating. He has 1,187 passing yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions this season.

Sanchez will look to make it four games in a row Thursday against Dallas.


Mark Sanchez puts up garbage-time points


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez ended up with decent numbers, but his second start in Week 11 against the Packers was mostly a disaster Sunday.

Sanchez finished the game with 21 Fantasy points, but most of that came after the game was already out of reach. He tossed both of his touchdowns in the second half with the Eagles down 30-plus points, after tossing a pair of ugly interceptions in the first half. He ended up completing 26 of 44 passes for 346 yards in the blowout loss.

Sanchez looked solid in his first start, but looked like the Mark Sanchez of old Sunday. He has six touchdowns in almost three full games since Nick Foles' injury, to go with four interceptions.

This Eagles offense looks like it can turn just about anyone into a productive Fantasy option, especially if they have to throw the ball 35-plus times. It might not be pretty, but Sanchez looks like he's in the right spot to remain Fantasy relevant down the stretch, even if you'll never feel great about starting him. 


Mark Sanchez throws for 332 yards, 2 TDs in first Eagles start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez kept Chip Kelly's offensive machine rolling Monday night in his first start since replacing the injured Nick Foles. Sanchez hit 20 of 27 throws for 332 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers in a 45-21 pasting of the Panthers.

It was Sanchez's first 300-yard game since Nov. 22, 2012. He moved well in the pocket and took only one sack.

With his team leading 17-7, Sanchez led a 91-yard touchdown drive in which he completed five straight passes for 28, 17, 20, 20 and 13 yards. Four of those went to his favorite receiver, Jordan Matthews, including the 13-yard score.

Sanchez later found Matthews for an 18-yard touchdown, and he nearly had a 30-yard scoring pass to tight end Brent Celek. But Celek was ruled down inside the 1.

Sanchez posted a 102.5 passer rating. He visits the Packers in Week 11.


Eagles' Chip Kelly: Nick Foles will be re-evaluated in a month


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that Nick Foles will be re-evaluated in approximately a month, according to the Philadelphia Daily News on Friday. The team will have a better sense of his timetable once he is re-evaluated. Kelly added that he's not sure if Foles will return as the starter, if he's back at any point this season.

"I have no idea. We could have no quarterbacks at that point in time," Kelly said.

Eagles' Kelly: 'I control the roster,' defends injured QB Nick Foles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly expressed his displeasure Thursday with the NJ.com report citing a source said general manager Howie Roseman has "kind of soured" on quarterback Nick Foles, who suffered a broken collarbone Sunday against the Texans.

“What I know is I control the roster, and you guys can say first hand: I don’t talk to anybody," Kelly said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. "Whoever says they have a source with what’s going to go on with roster maneuvers or people going up, and people going down, then they’re never talking to the right person, but that comes from me, and that never was the case."

Kelly didn't stop there and even suggested Foles gets criticized too much.

"I have great faith in Nick and I think he’s a hell of a quarterback," Kelly said. "I think sometimes he gets banged too much, but I wish there was more people like Nick Foles in our lives."


Eagles backup QB Matt Barkley better prepared in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Eagles backup quarterback Matt Barkley said Wednesday he is far more prepared to play this season than he was as a rookie in 2013, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Barkley is now the team's backup quarterback to Mark Sanchez since Nick Foles is sidelined several weeks due to a collarbone injury.

"I've progressed so much since when the public saw me last year," Barkley said. "Even from a health standpoint, my shoulder is finally healed. My [throwing] motion is back to where it should be.

"I've grown a lot this offseason in terms of overall position in the offense. I'm accustomed to what [Eagles coach Chip Kelly's] mindset is and how he wants quarterbacks to play. It's definitely a big difference from 2013.''
