Nick Foles In Uncharted Waters: How Will Eagles QB Take To Being Favorite?
Nick Foles has gone from supposedly being trade bait this time last season, to a legitimate MVP candidate for the 2013-14 campaign. Fresh off of an absolute undressing of the Chicago Bears, the Chip Kelly-led Philadelphia Eagles are just one win away from a postseason berth after finishing last year in the NFC East cellar. With Foles’ recent emergence many NFL fans have forgotten all about the man who actually beat Foles out in Eagles’ training camp — Michael Vick.
Going from back-up to All-Pro has been a crazy journey for the Philadelphia’s new franchise quarterback. So the question now becomes whether or not Foles is going to get complacent now that he’s seemingly lined himself up for what would be his first career playoff appearance. At what point does the moment become too big for a kid with a mere 15 NFL starts under his belt.
Everyone and their brother claims that Cam Newton is too inexperienced to win the big game, yet Newton has more than twice as many starts as Foles with 47. Luckily for Philadelphia, the Dallas Cowboys will be limping into Week 17 with Tony Romo and Sean Lee both likely to miss the game. The ball is in Foles’ court, but only time will tell if the second-year signal-caller is ready to take the Eagles to the promised land.
