Sanchez says trade talk is silly

AP

Eagles backup quarterback Mark Sanchez says he’s not on the trade market.

Sanchez is aware of talk that the Rams could be interested in acquiring him following the loss of quarterback Sam Bradford. But Sanchez says “nobody who would make those decisions has said anything” to him, and he’s sure that if a trade were a possibility, he would know about it.

“I think they would say something or my agent would say something,” Sanchez said, via CSNPhilly.com. “If those people aren’t talking to me about it, I seriously doubt it’s happening.”

It’s possible that Sanchez is wrong, and those conversations are happening without his knowledge. Especially considering that Rams coach Jeff Fisher has previously acknowledged having interest in Sanchez, and Eagles coach Chip Kelly has acknowledged he would consider trading Sanchez for the right price.

But the Rams have insisted that with Bradford out, they’re committed to Shaun Hill as their starter. So Sanchez will probably stay where he is, backing up Nick Foles.

  1. It’s tough for a QB traded at this point in the season to pick up a new offense in time. Josh Freeman might not be the best example but that was a catastrophic failure.

  2. It should also be mentioned that the Rams are interested in Charlie Whitehurst and Blaine Gabbert.

  3. Do you know what’s silly Sanchez?

    You being no where close to the talent of Future Hall of Famer Teddy Bridgewater.

    After the Minnesota Vikings win the Super Bowl this year, you will see.

    We have the best talent at every single offensive position, and a Head Coach who’s never not had a top 5 defense.

    This all equates into winning.

    And the same reason we’re 3-0 right now.

    Undefeated.

    Get used to it.

  4. Why would he want to go underwhelm in Schottenheimer’s offense? Again. Stay in Philly on the sidelines and hope Foles doesn’t get hurt. Profit.

  5. How funny would it be if he said he was actually building a house in Philadelphia and plans on raising a family there and being the Eagles backup QB for the next 10 years, haha.

  6. We’ve seen guys find out on twitter or SC that they were traded so I doubt Sanchez would be the first guy they informed about trade talks

  7. My Jets ruined Sanchez and a year off of football and a change of scenery seems to have given him a new life. He looks confident and is passing over 50%. Sanchez has had 4 offensive coordinators in as many years…hard thing for a QB. I wish him luck and hope that he is given another chance to start.

  8. Why would the Rams want to pay a significant price to bring in a problem child like Sanchez, who would take weeks to get up to speed, all for someone who would not be an upgrade to Hill. There is no there, there.

  9. Backup QB is a pretty decent gig – good pay to hold a clipboard and not take hits. Plus, who could blame him for wanting to fade into anonymity after what he went through in New York? His time there was brutal.

  10. If the Eagles trade Sanchez and Foles gets hurt, their season is over. Why would they make that trade for anything short of the Rams #1 draft pick (which figures to be a high pick)?

  11. Sanchez looks good this preseason. The Rams may be a good fit, making for an interesting season for NFL fans.

  12. Actually would be a smart move. He would be so bad that they could draft high again and could snag Winston or Mariota. GENIUS.

  13. Rams have given the ole vote of confidence in Hill in the same way teams do for coaches right before they fire them.

    Sanchez is clueless if he thinks he would be involved in any trade talks other than when they call him to the GM’s office and give him a box with his stuff in it. If Phily gets enough he’s as good as gone.

    Top 5 QB’s in the NFL :

    1. Peyton Manning.
    2. Drew Brees.
    3. Tom Brady.
    4. Teddy Bridgewater.
    5. Matt Cassel.

    Are these types of posts supposed to be funny? Because they never are. Are they supposed to be trolling? If so, it’s weak. This coming from someone who doesn’t like or hate the Vikes.

    As for Sanchez, I think Shaun Hill is a better option. Seriously.

  15. Sanchez’s time in NY was brutal but his play was equally brutal. He just had to be average on most of those teams and could not do that.

  16. They could get Christian Ponder for a song and a dance! He’s a first round pick from 2010. The Vikings would probably let him go for a 7th rounder!

  17. Actually, it shows that his maturity level has increased dramatically, so much so that he now realizes that it would indeed be silly for a team to consider him as a starter.

  18. Never have gotten PFTPoet posts. His lists make him at best not funny/amusing, or worse the most illusional person on the forum. Maybe he thinks it makes him look like a big Vikes fan, but in reality it just makes their fanbase look like a even bigger joke than their franchise already is.

    Could be worse, the Vikings could have a “game manager” in R. Wilson riding the coat tails of an aging defense…

  20. redskins should trade griffin to the rams..hopefully get one of their first round picks back..

  21. Sanchez was a free agent, and the Rams could have signed him. The fact they didn’t tells you all you need to know about what Jeff Fisher thinks of Sanchez…

  22. Not a Sanchez fan…..but he was ruined by the fanatical focus on defense in NY at the expense of the offense. This is a guy who needs weapons to be manage the offense and be successful.

    At the end of his tenure with the Jets, his confidence was shattered and his coach followed that up by playing him in a meaningless pre-season game and got him injured.

    Hope he can turn it around in either Philly or elsewhere.

  23. Anyone who questions how a franchise with zero championships can still sell tix and merchandise need look no further than the pftpoet. Proof that “there’s one born every minute.”

  24. This site has imported too many ESPN users. Eagles should and will not move Sanchez. Nobody is giving anything for him based on pre-season. I don’t trust Barkley and I know Chip doesn’t.

  25. Why would the Rams want Sanchez? He’s nothing more than a back up. My pick would be to work on getting Cousins.

  26. Sanchez never learns, and in the end, its all good in Mark’s World.

    For the Iggles, he came in during the NE pre-season game, threw 5 straight completions, the 5th being a TD. Looking sharp and full of confidence.

    His 6th throw, on the first possession of the 3rd Qtr….he throws an interception, and the Pats score 3 plays later.

    That’s Sanchez in a nutshell.

  27. Not that he would have much say, but staying in Philly for a year is his best move. He’s out of the three-ring circus that is the Jets and has real football players and coach around him now. He does good and there will be 5 teams fighting over him for next year.

    A good amount of you have no idea what you’re talking about. And my comment will be deleted again in 3…2…

    It’s easy to criticize but hard to create. Put some of your own thoughts out there.

  30. Despite the Buttfumble, Sanchez isn’t that bad. He’s been to two afc championship games. The Rams have a good defense and Sanchez wouldn’t have to do too much. Could be a good fit.

  31. Sanchez bashing is old hack. Not a fanboy or follower, just a football fan that knows he played for a dysfunctional franchise in New York. I know pre-season play isn’t the standard to go by, but he’s looked like different player compared to last season. Look at a guy like Jimmy Clausen. Pretty much given up for dead in Carolina, but under Trestman in Chicago, he looks like the QB that was raved about at Notre Dame. Sometimes an improved situation does wonders for a person.

  32. Mark Sanchez’s playoff record is better than Michael Vick’s by a country mile.

    People forget:
    Lifetime playoff record 4 -2
    He led the Jets on 2 minute drives to playoff games in both 2009 & 2010. (that wasn’t his defense, that was HIM).
    In the 2010 playoff run Mark Sanchez beat Tom Brady in NE & Peyton Manning in Indianapolis in back to back weeks.
    No one said Sanchez is a Brady, Peyton, Brees, or Luck by any means, he’s not carrying an offense on his back that is understood, but damn, many good QB’s need a team around them to be successful. With a offensive line, competent receivers & a running game, Mark Sanchez has already proven he is more than a serviceable QB.

  33. Never thought I would think this but beginning to think for moron fans Vikes> Steelers …………Bridgewater greater than Manning Elway Marino Montana Fouts Unitas combined……..skol!!!! Whatever that means

  34. This guy is so naive (stupid ) he honestly thinks the Eagles will let him know if he on the market. It’s no wonder he stinks.

  35. Sanchez has been watching enough Blue Mountain State to know being a back up is what its all about. He’s just hoping Nick Fluke can stay healthy

  36. When the Eagles signed Sanchez, there was nothing but complaining and butt fumble jokes among the Philadelphia faithful.

    That pretty much went away once training camp began. Sanchez has been outstanding in practices and preseason and there is now a confidence that should the Eagles require him to play, he would be very capable.

  37. The Eagles always try and pump up the value of their crappy quarterbacks.

    Look, there wasn’t much value in Sanchez in the offseason. There isn’t much now. He means more to Philly as a backup there than he would in St Louis.

    We’ll see if the Rams are desperate enough to gove anything of value for him.

  38. Sanchez has completed 80% of his passes this preseason. 25 for 31 2 tds and 1 pick.
    Not too shabby
