5. Matt Barkley Looked Good
Quarterback Matt Barkely has been up and down his whole football career. Many speculated if he would be traded or cut to make room for Tim Tebow. When Barkley stepped foot on the field on Sunday, he obviously had the best performance of all the Eagles quarterbacks.
Mark Sanchez looked really bad as he struggled with his accuracy and was bailed out on his only two completions by great catches. Tim Tebow looked rusty and held the ball way too long. Barkley on the other hand showed great accuracy, got the football out on time, and had the offense going fast.
Barkley had a interception but there’s nothing you can really do when there’s a tip ball situation. I’m not sure if Barkley will remain on the squad come cut day, but he showed that he can be a good backup on a number of teams. Barkley really impressed on Sunday.
