On SportsNation, former NFL wide receiver Plaice Burres made a personal attack to current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez. In the opening segment of the show, it began with Michelle Beadle, Burress, and Marcellus Wiley talking about #Rexpect.

Burress, who previously played for the New York Jets in 2011, said Sanchez is not an NFL caliber quarterback. During his one and only season with the Jets, Burress had Sanchez as the team’s starting quarterback for all 16 games.

“He only threw me a few passes,” Burress added. “What has he done in the past few years? Nothing. He set the Jets franchise back. He’s not an NFL quarterback.”

However, according to the stats, the wide receiver had 45 receptions for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.

In the past two years, neither player has played in the NFL. In 2012, Burress played in four games with the Pittsburgh Steelers, while Sanchez started 15 of 16 games for the Jets.

During Sanchez’s four years with the Jets, he went 1,028 of 1,867 for 12,092 yards. He threw 68 touchdowns and 69 interceptions, as well.

This past off-season, Sanchez signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. While Nick Foles has been the Eagles starter, the former Southern California signal-caller has been caught several times eating chicken tenders on the sidelines during games – his only action of doing anything since signing a contract for $2.25 million.
