Eagles plan to stick with Sam Bradford

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Eagles are 3-3 after winning their past two games, but Bradford’s performance has raised more questions than it has answered.

In Monday night’s victory over the New York Giants, Bradford threw three interceptions. He has thrown nine through six games. Over a full 16-game season, Bradford is on pace to throw 24 interceptions.

"Sam's our quarterback," Kelly said Tuesday. "We have complete confidence in Sam."

Last season, Foles and Mark Sanchez combined to throw 21 interceptions. Based on that performance, Kelly decided the Eagles’ quarterback situation was not conducive to contending for a Super Bowl. That’s what prompted him to make the trade for Bradford.

Fantasy Impact: 

Bradford has been putting up fantasy numbers in recent weeks, and despite three interceptions he threw for 400 yards against the Giants. If negative turnover points don't cost you anything, it makes Bradford's fantasy performances easier to live with. Still, he's leaving fantasy points on the field and a lot of his interceptions have come in, or just outside, the red zone.
