For many Eagles fans, Xmas has come early. Nick Foles will essentially have one half of football to make a case for the starting job. We all know that in this town, if Nick comes out with a strong second half, there will practically be an angry mob at the NovaCare Complex demanding a new era.
The only thing standing in his way is Marty and Andy and their play selection. If they keep him on a leash, and keep the kids gloves on, we can expect more of the same. Let the kid play, Andy. Call some plays that can help him shine. He’s been pinpoint accurate, hell he hit Avant in the face.
So as the second half begins, watch to see how Andy Reid plays his hand. Either we see what Foles has, or he’s already all in with Vick.
