Another thing Foles and the Eagles also need to understand is Foles will be getting much more pressure from other teams than last year. Meaning he has to make quicker decisions and release the ball much faster if he doesn’t want to constantly be hit or sacked. If Foles doesn’t work on this than he will find himself getting tossed around like Vick and injured constantly like Vick. These type of situations are primary reasons why the Eagles need a solid second string quarterback.
While the Eagles want to secure other positions, the quarterback position should be put back at the top of the list. While they don’t have to pick one up in the first or second round in the draft, they should be considering it in the third or fourth round. If Foles gets injured, you need to have another quarterback who you have full confidence in getting the job done and bringing home wins. I would hate to see the Eagles have to face a situation like the Dallas Cowboys and have to have try-outs for a quarterback at such an important time in the season. Like with everything else we have to wait and see what they Eagles will do, but I hope like many of you, that they make a very wise and long –term decision.
