Eagles training camp practice notes, July 26: Mark Sanchez wins the day

Mark Sanchez was very good on the Eagles' first day of practices at training camp. Early on during team drills, he threw a pair of accurate bombs, and then later he hit Darren Sproles in stride on a wheel route about 30 yards down the field. The overwhelming feeling among the media was that Mark Sanchez looked bad in OTAs and minicamp, and I don't disagree. However, he also occasionally looked pretty good. He showed he could fit passes into tight windows, and make tough sideline throws with zip and accuracy.

And then there were moments where his passes were nowhere near anyone. He would often throw to empty spaces in the middle of the field. It was difficult trying to figure out what he was looking at and what he was trying to do. When you see passes that don't make any sense, more than likely they're miscommunications with receivers.

Sanchez was just beginning to learn the offense, and he still is. In June, on a new team, his erratic play was probably to be expected. If he continues to make a high number of weird throws now that we're in training camp, it's more concerning. But on the first day of training camp, it was all good from the Sanchize, and past history says that at some point this season, the Eagles will probably need him.

Yes. I'm sure that's exactly what it was.

It's amazing that the narrative on Sanchez going into year 6 is the same as it was going into year 1.

Sanchez: [is absolutely terrible]

Everyone: "Yeah, but look at those three good throws he made! He's really putting it all together!"

Mark Sanchez getting MVP votes in December would be the greatest Jets story to ever transpire.

Kind of, but I'm afraid this narrative is going to die bloody. Sanchez wasn't ruined by Rex or Tannenbaum or Holmes or anyone else. He's just bad at everything.

You've got no appreciation of romance

Sanchez can barely throw a spiral. And his football smarts aren't Peyton level, so he in trouble. Then again, no he's not. No one sees a backup's level of suck.

His OC's were Schottenheimer and Sporano.  Who's to tell if he was that bad or in a bad system?

Neither of those guys made decisions for Sanchez, and neither of those guys threw the ball to the opposition for Sanchez. Jesus could have been his OC, with the Hulk playing all five o-line positions. He would have still played like Mark Sanchez.

Maybe you're right.  Now that Sanchez has a real OC, let's see how he does even in a backup capacity when called upon.  I'm not too surprised that he's performing better.  Time will tell.

Maybe his new OC can convince him that throwing INT's to D lineman is very very bad.

Or that shoving his face into an O-lineman's butt cleavage is even worse.

What, am I alone in believing Sanchez regressed the more he got coached by people who are presently coaching high school?  No support at all?  Hell, this board even has Kellen Clemens fans on it.

As long as Kelly's system is the one where the QB only has to make one read and never ever gets pressured, Sanchez should be fine.

I hope so. We saw that guy stink up the joint for more years than we should have had to. He was a failure of a project. We should have cut our losses sooner.

You forgot..."without 6ft plus guys moving side to side with their arms reaching up in praise of their lord and savior, Jesus H Christ."

Sanchez beat out Clemens, showed some really nifty footwork, and after 3 years of Schottenheimer and one year of Sparano was a mere husk of what he started out as.  Now he's getting another chance, not as a starter but another chance with a better OC.  He's already beaten out what's-his-face for second string.
