Mark Sanchez 'is not the man' for Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles recently acquired Mark Sanchez during the free agency period after he was released from the New York Jets, but questions still surround his quality.

The latest to aim criticism at the Eagles current second string QB was Boys II Men star singer Shawn Stockman.

"I don't think Mark Sanchez - and this is just me saying this as a fan - I don't Mark Sanchez is the guy," the Boys II Men star told TMZ Sports

The reason why Stockman believes Sanchez will find it hard to cope with playing for the Eagles is because of how hard the Philly media will be on him.

Sanchez was infamously castigated many times during his tenure with the New York Jets, and question marks remain over whether he can deal with the same pressures in Philadelphia.

"He's just going to go into Philadelphia and get cussed out. Look, if anyone knows anything about Philadelphia radio, those guys are no holes barred.

"Those guys go in deep, and I can imagine what those guys are talking about right now.

"We love out sports in Philly. I'm not an Eagles fan, but every other sports I'm all Philly."

Sanchez made back to back AFC Championship Games in his first two seasons with the New York Jets, before poor performances and injuries in his remaining years derailed his career in the Big Apple.
