There is no better way to endear yourself to your football team's fans by embracing the culture of the City, Mark Sanchez has already taken the first steps to becoming a Philadelphia folk hero.
Forget about his 332 passing yards and two touchdowns in the big Monday night 45-21 win over the Carolina Panthers, Mark Sanchez became a true Eagle after the contest when he ventured into the city to wolf down some Philly Cheesesteaks.
Sanchez paid a visit to South Philadelphia’s famous cheesesteak spots, Pat’s and Geno’s. The two rival restaurants sit opposite each other on the street and compete for the title of best cheesesteak spot in the city, Sanchez ordered from both.
Eating two Cheesesteaks in one sitting is rather impressive although the quarterback had worked up quite the appetite in his brilliant performance as the Eagles demolished the Panthers on prime time television.
Sanchez looked as capable as ever in front of the bright lights, the 28-year-old was making his first start since 2012 when he was with the New York Jets.

Return of Sanchez
Sanchez had promised the two spots that he would drop by after the game if the Eagles defeated the Carolina Panthers, the Philly squad won the game and moved on to 7-2, which leads their division and Sanchez made his appearance afterwards.
One fan even offered to supplement the quarterback his meal after his appearance, "I want you to have my cheese fries," said the fan, “Thanks, brother,” replied Sanchez.
Mark Sanchez celebrated his 28th birthday on the 11th November, after six unsuccessful years with the Jets where he was eaten alive by the New York media despite reaching two AFC Championship games, he is now set for his peak years in Philadelphia.
The injury to Nick Foles has given Sanchez the chance to reignite his NFL career with the Eagles.
