Chip Kelly: ‘Mark is Our Quarterback’


Just like that, the season is over before it’s even over.

With one game left to play, the 9-6 Philadelphia Eagles were officially eliminated from postseason contention this weekend after losing 27-24 to the Washington Redskins, the Eagles’ third straight loss.

Chip Kelly says it’ll be Mark Sanchez at quarterback for Sunday’s meaningless Week 17 game at the New York Giants. Not Nick Foles, who continues to recover from a broken collarbone, and not second-year QB Matt Barkley.

“Mark’s our quarterback,” Kelly told Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show on Monday morning. “Again, I thought Mark played a really good game. He goes 37 of 50. He was 37 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. “
