Mark Sanchez says he's 'just entering the prime of my career'
New Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez says he's "just entering the prime of my career" and is excited to be with the Eagles.
Despite the presence of Nick Foles as Philly's starter and Matt Barkley with a year under his belt, Sanchez thinks he can make a difference. He also said he's "just entering" the "prime" of his career and his shoulder injury last year could've been "a blessing in disguise."
"Maybe this whole shoulder thing and relocation has just been a blessing in disguise," Sanchez said. "Maybe that year off was exactly what I needed. Got a little rest for my legs, for my arm, and I feel great."
The whole "prime of my career" thing is pretty funny, mainly because Sanchez hasn't been that good for most of his career.
But, technically speaking, he's correct. He's currently 27, which is the height of athletic ability for males.
And while Foles is locked in as the starter, it's not like he's never missed time. Foles was out after suffering a concussion and he's not a lock as a top-10 quarterback in the NFL or anything.
Which is probably why he was so interested in Philly this offseason.
"I just kept thinking, 'Eagles. This is the place to be,' '' Sanchez said. "I really respected what they did last year . . . And I think they have a ton of talent, especially at the wideout position, tight end position. They're just overflowing with guys that can play. So that's exciting for a quarterback."
On the other side of the coin, if for any reason Sanchez does end up taking snaps for the Eagles, it could be pretty terrifying for Philly fans.
