Yesterday, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that the Philadelphia Eagles were on the brink of signing former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. The move seems to be inevitable if Sanchez can pass his medical exams — he had shoulder surgery back in October.
Needless to say, the majority of Eagles fans were not happy with the move. Here’s what they had to say.
@cover32_PHI not a good pick up

@cover32_PHI disappointing and pointless. Barkley could develop into a great 2nd string. And I'm sure there is another QB we could get.

@cover32_PHI I think they're trying to get a lottery pick. Oh wait, wrong sport. I think chip is losing it fast

There were some positive tweets in there, but not many.
