It's been quite a while season the talk around the NFL was the play of Mark Sanchez for the New York Jets, but if you're wondering where the quarterback currently is, its on the sideline for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Always eating

Backup for Nick Foles in Philadelphia, Sanchez is often seen on the sideline lending advice to his fellow quarterbacks, but we didn't realise part of his job was to make food recommendations?’s Steve DelVecchio spotted video of an exchange between Sanchez and Nick Foles during Sunday’s Eagles-Giants game and the topic of conversation is baffling.

The Eagles blew out the New York Giants on their home turf and with a final scoreline of 27-0, it was the first time that Philadelphia have recorded a shut out for 18 years in their dominating win.

A very comfortable outing for the Eagles may be a reason to excuse players for letting their minds wander and ponder other subjects, the video recording shows Sanchez was certainly in a relaxing mood.

Chomping away, the backup quarterback leaned to Foles and said: "“You should try the chicken tenders, They’re good.”

Begging the question just where is Sanchez getting this food to eat whilst the game is still being played?

It's happened before

Strangely its not the first time the internet has spotted Mark Sanchez unashamedly scoffing away during a game.

The quarterback whilst playing for the New York Jets, was involved in a heavy spanking of the Oakland Raiders where the Jets were leading 38-0. The camera pans to the sideline to notice Sanchez trying to hide the fact he's eating a hot dog.

Were not really sure the desperation for Sanchez to eat on the sidelines but one thing we know for sure, he's making headlines about munching snacks rather than winning games.
