Philadelphia Eagles Nick Foles has had an interesting week. His two interceptions in three possessions during last week’s preseason game has some people worried. In just a few minutes he matched his interception total for all of last season.
Now, it’s easy to overreact and no one wants to see the young man fall from grace. After all, he’s been placed on a pedestal of sorts. But Foles has never enjoyed that pedestal nor did he want to be there. He’s not the kind of athlete that enjoys all the spotlight. And it’s easy for the fans to be let down when mistakes are made.
Too many of us are looking at the past and dreaming of the future. Thinking that if Foles can repeat last season’s efforts the Eagles will surely win the Super Bowl this year. He may do better, he may do worse. But one thing is for sure, he’s a very good quarterback and could become a great one this year. But he’ll not be looking in the past to figure this season out either way.
