Bennett: Mark Sanchez trying to impersonate good QB

The Seattle Seahawks were unimpressed by the Eagles and Chip Kelly's offense in a 24-14 victory Sunday in Philadelphia.

Richard Sherman dismissed the current group of Eagles wide receivers. Michael Bennett took aim at quarterback Mark Sanchez.

"Tell the Philadelphia police to put an ABP out. Sanchez is trying to impersonate a good quarterback," Bennett said, per USA Today's Jarrett Bell.

The Philadelphia police probably don't need an "ABP" (or APB) to find Sanchez, they just needed to help escort the bus carrying the Seattle defense to the airport and out of town quickly after it shut down the local team.

Sanchez, who had been averaging 300.5 yards per game since taking over as the starter, went 10-of-20 passing for 96 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The Eagles had 139 total yards, the fewest under Kelly.

"No matter how fast they ran a play, we were just on it," said linebacker Bobby Wagner, per ESPN.com. "We knew what plays were coming and it's a pretty basic offense."

That "basic" offense was utterly thwarted by an accomplished defense ramping up its play just in time for another Super Bowl run.
