Bobby Doerr Jersey

Sanchez,Cheap Jeseys NFL, the former face of the New York Jets, will make his first start in 23 months when the Eagles (6-2) host the Carolina Panthers (3-5-1) on Monday night.
Newton has struggled during the team's three-game losing streak, completing less than 50 percent of his passes for 527 yards with three interceptions and one touchdown. It hasn't helped that rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin has dropped passes in the end zone in consecutive games.
FINDING OLSEN: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has four catches in the last two games after averaging six per game the first seven weeks. Part of the reason for his decreased production is he's staying in and helping with pass protection rather than running routes. Olsen could see plenty of targets this week going against a defense that's missing middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
"I've always enjoyed no-huddle tempo and I think some of my best play in New York was that format," Sanchez said.
Newton has also been sacked 10 times during the three-game span while playing behind a makeshift offensive line. If there's a bit of good news for Carolina, it's that left tackle Byron Bell and left guard Amini Silatolu are expected back Monday night.
Here are some other things to watch for Monday night:
Yes, the similarities between Sanchez and Foles are such that even teammates can't tell who's playing.
SECONDARY CONCERNS: The Panthers have allowed 17 TD passes this season, which is as many as they surrendered all of last season. Carolina lost starting cornerback Captain Munnerlyn and safety Mike Mitchell in free agency, and the revamped secondary has struggled without them. Cornerback Melvin White was benched earlier this season for Josh Norman, and Antoine Cason was benched for White in Carolina's loss to New Orleans on Oct. 30. Last month, the team released veteran nickel back Charles Godfrey as part of the ever-changing secondary. Safeties Roman Harper and Thomas DeCoud, two low-budget free agent signings, have struggled.
"We didn't change anything,cheap jerseys nfl wholesale," Kelly said. "I think he can run everything. The first play he was in there, we threw a 50-yard pass to Maclin. I think he truly understands what we're trying to get accomplished here and he was great in terms of assisting Nick in all these games,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, and when it was his chance to go into the game and play, he did an outstanding job with it."
O-LINE SHUFFLE: Evan Mathis, a 2013 All-Pro, returns for the Eagles at left guard,Jerseys NFL Cheap, but right guard Todd Herremans is out for the season with a torn left biceps. A dominant offensive line helped Philadelphia lead the NFL in rushing last year and the same five guys started all 17 games,Isaiah Thomas Jersey, including playoffs. They weren't together for one game this season. Right tackle Lane Johnson was suspended four games to start the year. Mathis injured his knee in Week 1. Center Jason Kelce missed four games. Now, Herremans is gone. Only left tackle Jason Peters has started every game.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton isn't doing quite as well.
"This is a team game and we can't put it on the quarterback and say it is all about the quarterback," Carolina coach Ron Rivera said.
Don't expect Chip Kelly to change his offense because he has a new quarterback. Sanchez stepped right in when Foles broke his clavicle last week, and led the Eagles to a win at Houston.
COMING HOME: The Panthers have plenty of Philly connections. Rivera spent five seasons as linebackers coach with the Eagles from 1999-2003. Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott was on Philadelphia's staff from 1998-2010, including the last two years as defensive coordinator. McDermott replaced Jim Johnson when he passed away in July 2009. Wide receiver Jason Avant spent his first eight seasons with the Eagles. He played in the fifth-most games (116) for an Eagles wideout before he was released in March.

Sanchez has a chance to revive his career after things went downhill in New York following consecutive appearances in the AFC championship game his first two seasons. He's adjusted nicely to Kelly's offense.
SHADY TIME: LeSean McCoy has rushed for 100 yards in two of the last three games and the 2013 NFL rushing champion should expect to find some open lanes against Carolina. The Panthers are 26th against the run, allowing 131.9 yards per game. They've allowed seven of nine opponents to rush for 100 yards or more and surrendered 11 TDs on the ground. The Eagles featured a three-headed rushing attack last week at Houston: McCoy had 117 yards; Chris Polk had 50; Darren Sproles had 17.
