Seahawks star trolls Eagles' Mark Sanchez with 'impersonation' insult

The Seattle Seahawks, after a shaky start to life as the reigning champions, seem to be hitting form at just the right time. A fact the Philadelphia Eagles discovered to their downfall on Sunday as they were rolled over 24-14.

Defense on top

The game pegged Seattle's Legion of Boom against a much-hyped Eagles offense but when all was said and done it was the Seahawks who left the game having improved their reputation.

Never ones to opt for modesty in victory the reigning champs - led by Richard Sherman - were quick to stick the boot in on their rivals. It was Defensive End Michael Bennett though who had the quote of the day - targeting Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez for some tough words.

Not the real deal

In deputising for the injured Nick Foles since Week 9, Sanchez has put in some impressive displays for Philadelphia with many seeing him as a legitimate option as starting QB heading forward. Clearly Bennett hasn't been won over by the former Jets man however.

"Tell the Philadelphia police to put an ABP (sic. APB) out. Sanchez is trying to impersonate a good quarterback," USA Today's Jarrett Bell reports Bennett as saying.

With Pete Carroll having, in the days prior to Sunday's encounter, moved to quell speculation about a long-standing rift with Sanchez it is unlikely Bennett's comments will have gone down well with the veteran coach.

Tough day

When you take a look at the stat line from the Week 14 game though you can certainly see why the Seahawks' man might have such a derogatory view of Mark Sanchez.

Sanchez threw for just 96 yards and, although he did manage two TD passes, he completed just 10-of-20 and three one interception. Not the numbers you'd hope for from a "good" quarterback.

While the Eagles and Sanchez will be disappointed to have put in such a poor display against Seattle, the Seahawks' defense was back to its very best. Even the likes of Aaron Rodgers and his MVP 2014 form would have struggled to get much going on Sunday.
