And so he was able to crack a smile - and a retort - when it was brought up at a news conference Wednesday before Sanchez participated in his first practice as the Washington Redskins' latest starting quarterback.

He'll be on the field Sunday when Washington (6-6) hosts the New York Giants (4-8). The options in the free agent market are far from inspiring, which makes Kaepernick's perception as the best option available a disorienting claim. "That's why we went with Sanchez". Some low hanging fruit, so that was an easy reach for you. "I'm just kidding! I'm just kidding!" Come on. Thick skin in here, huh? No, listen: Who cares?

"Who cares? It's one play and you move on".

Which, of course, is exactly what he should do. He went 13/21 for 100 yards and an interception and was largely ineffective in the 28-13 loss to the Eagles.

"You know, it's amusing you hear a lot of the old coaching adages and guys are talking about running certain routes and in my head I'm thinking how I've seen this guy run a route or whatever and I just keep reminding myself that you're not running the line on the page, you're running the route", Sanchez said. Getting him more involved against the Giants could be a safe way to get some production in the passing game. There's many, many good things that happen.

Smith, 34, went down with a broken right leg in Week 11. It was discussed two weeks ago. "You're just happy to get a shot". Enter Mark Sanchez, Redskins quarterback of about two weeks, who now finds himself guiding a team that's right in the playoff hunt.

Bad news, Colin Kaepernick fans: Jay Gruden says they likely won't.

"Just kind of letting him know what I think and what I look forward to on some of my routes and stuff", Thompson said. The 31-year-old hasn't even had a work out with a team this season, while other QBs like T.J. Yates, E.J. Manuel and Mark Sanchez have gotten calls.

However, AAF co-founder Bill Polian told SiriusXM NFL Radio that Johnson was released Tuesday from his league contract so that he could sign with the Redskins.
