Listen: Newbie Mark Sanchez replaces Redskins QB McCoy, out for season with broken leg
"It was a twenty eight thirteen loss for Washington to the eagles McCoy also becomes the second quarterback for Washington to suffer such a fate. Alex Smith broke his fibula and tibia in week eleven so now Washington at six and six has to try and stay in the playoff picture with Mark Sanchez who was signed on November nineteenth. It was a tall task no doubt. But you know, there's no excuses to make you just do your very best. And I'm grateful for the opportunity, and you know, I was praying for an opportunity and I thank God for the opportunity. It just never wanted under these circumstances. So with respect to Alex and cold. You know, I gotta do my very best to to play well and help rally this team in figure out a way to win. And that's that's the ultimate former respect I think for those guys because guard definitely breaks for them. They're they're great competitors. And great people. And so you never wanted under those circumstances. Like, I said, but you go on your very best. Nine eleven days since Dallas. How many did you get any reps? No cole. Cole was getting ready to play. And that's the way it should have been. I would have wanted that. If I was in cold shoe. So I I totally understood that there was you know, for me to go and play was an emergency situation and those things happen. So you know, now it goes from contingency plan to game plan. And and we got another tough task next week the thing we're at home, and you know, we got a on a short week too. So, but like I said at the beginning, then there's no excuses, and to be totally honest. I mean, nobody cares. Nobody cares that you know, you charged with a job you get paid to play this game. And you get paid to go win. And that's what people expect. So that's the kind of pressure. We put on ourselves must more than outside our building. And. I mean, I can't tell you how much I respect those guys in there. I can't name all of them who came up to me. Not just because I'm new but all the guys who came up to me like, man. Hang in there. You're good. We get it. We understand. We know you're a vet. But we understand rally for you. You're gonna do great next week. And that I mean for a new guy on a team that that feels good because it's like the first day high school, where do I sit at launch kinda thank you know. So there's there's a lot of that going on. But I think we'll be just fine. And we just gotta work hard put her head down and work hard and challenge each other and gone player. Best Mark Sanchez now the starting quarterback for Washington after replacing Colt McCoy on Monday McCoy leaving the beginning of the second quarter after going four for four for fifty yards. But leaves the game with a broken leg. Eagles go on to get the win twenty eight thirteen they've won back to back games after back to back losses Washington and Philadelphia both one game behind Dallas in the NFC east. Carson wentz. Pretty good game for Phillies"
