Are the Eagles Putting Too Much Faith In Nick Foles?

 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.

    Foles was a Probowl QB this year (his 2nd year). Stop ripping the guy. Let’s just get a solid back up in free agency.

    Not only was he a pro bowl qb but he was the offensive mvp. And the point that he will be getting more pressure is just crazy. Go ahead and blitz all the time the Eagles will continue to throw bubble screens and have foles go to his hot read like he did all last year. 2013 was not a fluke it was 11 games of consistent qb play which followed 6 games last year. The other teams had tape on foles and could not stop him. You should check out how the team not just foles responded to pressure last year from the play calling to the changing of routes by wideouts because the pressure was recognized by foles. And if you want to knock him for taking a couple extra sacks which I will admit he did why don’t you check how many picks he threw. While a sack hurts a pick is a game changer. O and I don’t know if you know this but nick is 6-6 250 lb and is never running in open field about to get nailed by a line backer which is exactly what Vick who is 6 ft 200 lb does all the time. It is also the main reason he can’t stay healthy for more than 5 weeks at a time. It is ridiculous to compare the two in terms of frailty. Apples to oranges

    O and what type of nfl ready come off the bench and start winning games for us qb do you expect to pick up in the 3rd or 4th round. Really throw some names of these guys who you are proposing the Eagles draft out there. Please tell me who these guys are cause I don’t see them anywhere.

    Hey Dr. Muon Funk, thanks for commenting!!! Not ripping the guy at all, like you I’m hoping we get a solid backup. I don’t believe putting all my faith in one guy after one successful season as starting QB in the NFL. I felt the same with Vick. No one is exempt from getting hurt in sports.
