Full Version: Seattle Seahawks' Michael Bennett: "Mark Sanchez Is Trying To Impersonate A Good Quarterback"
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
The Seattle Seahawks were unimpressed by the Eagles and Chip Kelly's offense in a 24-14 victory Sunday in Philadelphia.

Richard Sherman dismissed the current group of Eagles wide receivers. Michael Bennett took aim at quarterback Mark Sanchez.

"Tell the Philadelphia police to put an ABP out. Sanchez is trying to impersonate a good quarterback," Bennett said, per USA Today's Jarrett Bell.

The Philadelphia police probably don't need an ABP to find Sanchez, they just needed to help escort the bus carrying the Seattle defense to the airport and out of town quickly after it shut down the local team.

Sanchez, who had been averaging 300.5 yards per game since taking over as the starter, went 10-of-20 passing for 96 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The Eagles had 139 total yards, the fewest under Kelly.

"No matter how fast they ran a play, we were just on it," said linebacker Bobby Wagner, per "We knew what plays were coming and it's a pretty basic offense."

That "basic" offense was utterly thwarted by an accomplished defense ramping up its play just in time for another Super Bowl run.

FWIW, this is the second time this season Chip's offense has been called predictable.

I tend to agree with that assessment. We don't run a whole lot of plays. It comes down to execution and beating the other guy. We didn't do enough of that yesterday. I also think that Chip was afraid to put the game in Sanchez's hands. Assuming we get a rematch, I would have to imagine he would have a different gameplan in that regard.
Considering the Seahawks run the most predictable defense in the league, I'm not sure what they are on about unless they are just trying to troll. Being "predictable" is the entire secret to Chip's success, he focuses on out executing the other team ala Jimmy Johnson or Pete Carroll.
