Bills' Ryan: 'Too early to tell' if team will pursue QB Mark Sanchez
by Michael Hurcomb |

Since taking over as the Bills coach, Rex Ryan has faced an onslaught of questions about whether or not he would consider reuniting with quarterback Mark Sanchez, who went 4-4 as a starter in 2014 for the Eagles after Nick Foles got hurt. 

USA Today was the latest to ask Ryan about bringing Sanchez to Buffalo, but Ryan did his best to dance around the question since Sanchez is still under contract with the Eagles.

"I don’t know," Ryan said. "First off, he’s technically under contract with someone else right now so I won’t talk about him specifically. But the numbers are what the numbers are with all the quarterbacks. Right now we’re in the early stages, the evaluating stages of possible free agents, draft picks and the two guys that we already have on the roster, so that’s really where we’re at right now and too early to tell who’s going to be here, who’s not going to be here and really what our answers would be."

Sanchez was with the Jets from 2009-13. Ryan was fired as the Jets coach in December after six seasons with the team.

New Bills coach Rex Ryan guarantees playoff berth
by Larry Hartstein |

Introduced as Bills head coach Wednesday, Rex Ryan was his usual blustery self.

“I know it’s been 15 years since the Bills have been to the playoffs,” he said. “Get ready. We’re going. We are going.”

Ryan stopped short of guaranteeing a Super Bowl, saying, “I’ll guarantee the pursuit of it.”

He said his message to the team was simple: “We’re going to be playing games in January and so forth – start preparing that way.”

Ryan professed to be “not concerned at all” about his quarterback situation. Though he did not commit to EJ Manuel as the starter, Ryan said the second-year pro “has a lot of traits you look for in a quarterback.”

Kyle Orton announced his retirement following the season. Asked about a possible reunion with Mark Sanchez, Ryan said the team will explore all options.

The Bills went 9-7 this season, then coach Doug Marrone opted out of his contract.

Eagles QB Mark Sanchez sharp in Week 17 victory
by Larry Hartstein |

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.

Chip Kelly not fully committed to Nick Foles for 2015
by Larry Hartstein |

Asked about his quarterback situation heading into 2015, Eagles coach Chip Kelly expressed support for Nick Foles but did not fully endorse him as the team's quarterback of the future, reports Kelly said he needs to make a decision on Foles based on his limited body of work.

"The reality is the reality," Kelly said, referring to the broken collarbone that ended Foles' season after eight games.

"I can't say, 'Hey, let's not make a decision because I need to see him play 16 more games.' In certain times we're going to have to make decisions, so you have to make it based on what you have. We don't have any control over the injury."

Foles threw 13 touchdowns against 10 interceptions this year after sparkling with 27 touchdowns and two picks last season. Foles has one more year on his contract at $660,000, while replacement Mark Sanchez is scheduled for free agency. Matt Barkley is signed for two more years but has thrown one pass this season.

Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur sounds like a believer in Foles.

"I think we know what we have in Nick, and we've seen a guy that I think, by last count, he's 14-4 as a starter," Shurmur said. "So that's really how you judge a quarterback."

Eagles coach Chip Kelly: Mark Sanchez is our quarterback Week 17
by Igor Mello |

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.
