PHILADELPHIA — The Eagles took practice from the NovaCare to Lincoln Financial Field on Tuesday, but while the location changed, one thing remained the same. 

Sam Bradford is going to be this team’s starting quarterback. 

Sure, things could change when preseason games start, but it is clear that the Eagles are giving Bradford the first crack at the job. 

One again, Bradford took the majority of reps with the first-team offense on Tuesday, while backup Mark Sanchez got only four snaps with the starters. 

So what did the two quarterbacks do with their reps?

Here is a complete breakdown for each quarterback from Tuesday’s practice. 

Sam Bradford:

Tuesday Reps: 29 reps (25 with first team)

Tuesday Stats: 19/23, 0 TD, 0 INT

Overall Stats: 84 reps (eight with second team), 52/64, 1 INT, 1 TD

Analysis: With Bradford, it almost always starts and ends with his health, which makes Tuesday a good day for the team’s starting quarterback. Bradford practiced for the third day in a row, and looked healthy, rolling out a number of times on his twice-surgically-repaired knee. 

The bad news? Outside of his health, he didn’t look so great. 

Bradford’s worse sequence of the day came during 11-on-11 drills, when he fumbled a perfect snap in the shotgun. On the following play, Bradford handled the snap, rolled out to his left and badly missed his intended receiver. 

Grade: C-


EAGLES: 53-man roster prediction


Mark Sanchez:

Tuesday Reps: 28 reps (four with first team)

Tuesday Stats: 16/20, 0 TD, 0 INT

Overall Stats: 79 reps (eight with first team), 38/55, 0 TD, 0 INT

Analysis:  Sanchez’s attempt to win the starting job from Bradford isn’t going so well. 

The quarterback is playing just fine, hasn’t turned the ball over and is taking what the defense is giving him. He did that again on Tuesday, but has yet to really have a “wow” moment through the first three practices. 

Ball security is crucial for Sanchez. But if he is going to win the fight against Bradford, he needs to knock him out — and Sanchez, who isn’t getting many first-team reps — hasn’t even really thrown a punch. 

Grade: C

Tim Tebow:

Tuesday Reps: 14 reps

Tuesday Stats: 5/11, 0 TD, 0 INT

Overall Stats: 44 reps, 25/37, 0 TD, 0 INT

Analysis: Tebow didn’t get many reps on Tuesday, perhaps the result of the Eagles practicing at the Linc and having less space. Tebow attempted only 11 passes, handing the ball off the rest of the time. 

He did make the most of his 11 pass attempts, however, and nearly had a long touchdown pass, but the ball was dropped in the end zone. 

Tebow had one nice scramble, holding the ball and taking off for about a 15-yard gain. 

Grade: C+

Matt Barkley

Tuesday Reps: 15 reps

Tuesday Stats: 5/11, 0 TD, 1 INT

Overall Stats: 45 reps, 25/36, 0 TD, 1 INT

Analysis: After a strong start to camp, Barkley has slowly taken a step back each day, and he struggled mightily on Tuesday. 

Not only did Barkley have more incompletions than completions,  which is difficult to do given the short passes ib Chip Kelly’s scheme, but Barkley badly overthrew one of his only shots down the field. 

During a team drill, Barkley had a receiver open, but missed him, resulting in an interception by safety Chris Prosinski. 

Barkley is arguably a long shot to make the roster, but if he has any chance, he is going to have to play better than he did on Tuesday. 

Grade: F
