Just think if Chip Kelly would have picked Nick Foles to be the Eagles starting quarterback when the season started. This kid continues to impress every time he takes to the field. The Eagles are in a tie for first place in the NFC East, and Kelly has Foles to thank for this gift.
There is little doubt Vick cannot be the Eagles quarterback if Foles is healthy. The Eagles are contenders with Foles playing at QB and with Vick, they often had the look of pretenders. Foles threw 3 more touchdown passe to help lead the Eagles over the Green Bay Packers yesterday.
Granted, this isn’t the same Packers team with Rodgers sidelined, but the Green Bay defense couldn’t stop Foles. He makes fewer mistakes for his Eagles too.
Foles finished his day by completing 12 of 28 passes, for 228 yards and 3 touchdowns, and he had a 149.2 quarterback rating. If my math is correct Foles has thrown 10 touchdown passes in his last 2 games. This kind of performance puts Foles in the same conversations as the other NFL elite quarterbacks.
If he continues to play the way he is now, their is no telling how far this Eagles team can go. How many team’s only wished they had a talent like Nick Foles this season. The Eagles were smart not trading this kid before the season started.
You can’t teach this kind of ability, for Foles it comes naturally and he is just getting started.
Kelly, has to be impressed and so does everyone else, who appreciate great quarterback play.
