Howdy, Cowboy: The Eagles land Demarco Murray

Something to smile about: The Eagles sign Demarco Murray, as Jerry Jones’ heart sinks.

It may be the offseason, but the Eagles have pulled off a rousing victory over the Dallas Cowboys: they landed RB Demarco Murray. Whether you trust in Chip Kelly, or many of his transactions over the past week have left you scratching your head, this is one move that makes sense. In the wake of the loss of LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills, the Birds needed a star in the backfield, and that is exactly what they have gotten with Murray, who reportedly inked a 5-year deal with $21 million in guaranteed money.

Every step he takes, every move he makes, we’ll be watching him. Every throw. Every decision. Can Sanchez ably lead the Birds for the six to eight weeks that Nick Foles is expected to be out with a broken collarbone?

If Sanchez can avoid the turnovers that became an all-too prevalent part of Foles’ performance this season and turn in a series of consistent performances, the answer could be yes. But those are big “ifs”. Sanchez has his own history of turning the ball over to overcome. Since entering the league in 2009, the former USC quarterback has thrown for more interceptions (71) than touchdowns (70) in his career.
