Nick Foles

  1. Eagles meet with QB Johnny Manziel at combine, nothing to see here (probably)

    Feb 25, 2014, 11:42 AM EDT

    manziel

    The NFL Scouting Combine is wrapping up on Tuesday in Indianapolis, where the Philadelphia Eagles made some news that’s sure to be trumped up in the weeks and months leading to the draft. Tucked in this week’s edition of the Monday Morning Quarterback by Peter King was the tidbit that the Birds were one of…

  2. Nick Foles gets engaged

    foles-engaged

    Everything is coming up Nick Foles these days. Fresh off a sophomore season that firmly entrenched him as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, the 25-year-old signal-caller is getting engaged according to a tip over at Barstool Sports: Philly. The young lady’s name is Tori, and based on internet stalking sleuthing, they appear to…

  3. Former NFL general manager rates quarterbacks, Foles ranked 12th

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT

    foles9

    Would you rather have Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and highest-rated passer in the NFL Nick Foles under center, or Seattle Seahawks signal-caller and world champion Russell Wilson? There’s been an ongoing debate in Philadelphia as to how good Foles really is, whether mobile quarterbacks are better than pocket passers and, specifically in our comment section, where…

  4. Gosh: Nick Foles does his Napoleon Dynamite impersonation on Dan Patrick Show

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:06 AM EDT

    Foles

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show this morning and talked plenty about his career as a football player. But it was his super quick impersonation of Napoleon Dynamite that sticks out from the 8+ minute interview. Foles talked briefly about meeting Dan Marino, his love for Mike Vick,…

  5. Counting Down the Eagles’ Needs: No. 8, Quarterback

    Jan 29, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    foles-pro-bowl-practice

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Check out the previous installments on tight ends and  running backs. It’s amazing to me…

  6. Nick Foles named co-MVP of 2014 Pro Bowl

    Jan 27, 2014, 6:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

    Full disclosure: I didn’t spend one second watching the Pro Bowl. If you did happen to tune in though, you witnessed the latest chapter in the legend of Nick Foles. The quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles connected on seven of 10 pass attempts for 89 yards and a touchdown to Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan…

  7. Nick Foles was chosen second-to-last in the Pro Bowl ‘draft’

    Jan 23, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT

    BergS6wCAAEZp-N

    Thank goodness for Alex Smith! According to ESPN’s Phil Sheridan, the draft style format that is new to this year’s Pro Bowl did not go so well. Safe to say he was not a fan of the novelty act. Shady McCoy was drafted with the fourth pick overall today but DeSean Jackson and Nick Foles…

  8. Report: Detroit Lions to hire Eagles QB coach Bill Lazor for offensive coordinator post

    Jan 14, 2014, 4:02 PM EDT

    Eagles Buccaneers Football

    Nick Foles is heading to the Pro Bowl. Chip Kelly is taking a lot of the credit. Bill Lazor is—perhaps soon to be was—the man behind the scenes As an assistant, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach largely flew under the radar while Foles was becoming the highest-rated passer in the NFL. It sounds like folks…

  9. Nick Foles makes the Pro Bowl (which reminds you of things about the Pro Bowl)

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:58 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Lions Eagles Football

    If you’re anything like me, you might flip on the Pro Bowl for a few minutes on whatever day/night it’s televised if you’re not already in the middle of a Sopranos or Breaking Bad binge-watching session, but mostly because you’re curious what the weather is like in Hawaii or how awful of a shirt Andy…

  10. Nick Foles: ‘I’m hurting inside right now in my heart’

    Jan 5, 2014, 7:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

    Whether you want to admit it or not, I think all of us were quietly thinking, hoping the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles might be one of those special teams that does the unthinkable and wins a world a championship in a year when nobody was expecting it. That feeling exists largely due to Nick Foles. Statistically…

  11. If you haven’t heard yet, you certainly will: Nick Foles and Drew Brees went to same Texas high school

    Jan 2, 2014, 4:06 PM EDT

    usa-brees-foles-slide

    It’s true. The two quarterbacks going up against each other in the NFC playoffs on Saturday night attended the same high school in Austin, Texas. That’s a fun quirky fact you’ll likely hear a couple of times on the telecast on Saturday. But it’s not as fun as one might hope. Nick Foles and Drew…

  12. Eagles Pro Bowl snubs, ranked

    Dec 28, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    foles-desean

    With a 9-6 record, the second-ranked offense in the NFL, and a defense that’s held 10 of its last 11 opponents to 21 points or less, the Philadelphia Eagles managed to send just two players to the 2014 Pro Bowl. Running back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters were beyond worthy candidates, but where’s…

  13. ‘We want Dallas! We want Dallas!’

    mccoy-fans

    The Chicago Bears had everything to play for with a division title on the line. The Philadelphia Eagles had the bare minimum to gain—improved seeding in the playoffs, if they get in. Guess which team showed up? The Eagles blew the doors off the visiting Bears 54-11 at Lincoln Financial Field in front of a…

  14. Meltdown in Minneapolis: Eagles streak snapped in 48-30 loss to Vikings

    Dec 15, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    cassel-td

    This had “trap game” written all over it. Shades of Joe Webb some fans even lamented in the lead-up to Sunday. Whether this loss will be remembered similarly in Philadelphia Eagles lore probably depends on how they finish the season, but today, it feels devastating. After holding nine straight opponents to 21 points or fewer,…

  15. GIF: Nick Foles’ block woulda been pretty sweet if it wasn’t illegal

    Dec 15, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Foles.illegal.block

    Going for it on 4th and 1 is a ballsy move. Calling a double reverse on 4th and 1 is the ballsiest. Chip Kelly did both. Maybe you didn’t like Chip getting extra cute when he only needed a yard to move the chains — Hi, Shady McCoy — but the play worked beautifully. Right…

  16. Chip Kelly doesn’t believe in any stupid SI cover jinx; but the power of the conch compels

    Dec 11, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    foles-cover

    A couple of solid one-liners from Chipper at his Wednesday press conference. First, he was asked about Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles being jinxed due to the second-year quarterback earning a spot on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated. Q: Are you aware of the @SInow cover jinx? Coach Kelly: I don’t believe…

  17. Nick Foles gets the Sports Illustrated cover treatment

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    foles-cover

    Even though it may not mean as much as it did 10-20 years ago, making the cover of Sports Illustrated is still pretty damn cool. Chalk it up as just the latest honor bestowed upon Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. The unforgettable sight of Foles standing tall in the face of a blizzard has now…

  18. Biggest takeaway from Eagles Sunday: LeSean McCoy calls Nick Foles “Folesy”

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    AP-foles-mccoy

    You can debate whether or not Nick Foles has the makings of a true NFL quarterback–well, maybe you could a couple weeks ago, now the debate’s getting kinda one-sided–but he’s definitely lacking in at least one intangible category: His name kinda stinks. Peyton Manning, that’s a quarterback name. Tom Brady. Cam Newton. Andrew Luck. Michael…

  19. The time ‘genius’ head coach Chip Kelly deferred to Cary Williams

    Dec 9, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Want to know what makes Chip Kelly smarter than a lot of other bosses around the NFL? He knows he doesn’t always have all the answers and is willing to take good advice—even when it comes from a player. The Philadelphia Eagles’ offense was stranded in a ditch somewhere off of I-95 until cornerback Cary…

  20. Origins: How the Eagles came to draft Nick Foles

    Dec 8, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    foles-reid

    There are two really great stories going around about how the Philadelphia Eagles came to select Nick Foles, quarterback from the University of Arizona, with the 88th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and both manage to cover the pick from different angles. The first is Jeff McLane’s in Saturday’s edition of the Philadelphia…

  21. Even your phone thinks Nick Foles is the best QB in the NFL

    Dec 4, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    foles9

    Computers can’t lie. They’re all 1′s and 0′s and all that. Nick Foles is all TDs and zero interceptions. But give it a shot for yourself. Ask your phone who it thinks the best quarterback in the NFL is. No wonder Chip Kelly wants him to be quarterback of the Eagles for the next 1,000…

  22. Donnie Jones the 12th man for Eagles defense, Nick Foles the 13th

    Dec 4, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT

    donnie-jones

    Philadelphia Eagles punter Donnie Jones was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second game in a row on Wednesday, which is no surprise. His seven punts downed inside the opponents’ 20-yard line in the 24-21 win over Arizona was one shy of the NFL record. It’s not very difficult to…

  23. Video: Chip Kelly says Nick Foles is Eagles QB for ‘next 1,000 years’

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Riley Cooper

    With a hard-fought win over a tough Arizona Cardinals squad, Nick Foles’ record improved to 5-1 this season. He’s now thrown 19 touchdowns to his zero interceptions. So are the Eagles any closer to naming the 24-year-old their franchise quarterback of the future? You bet. One week after officially naming Foles the starter, Chip Kelly…

  24. Cardinals hold, Eagles hold on to fourth-straight victory

    Dec 1, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    eagles-arz

    After setting a franchise record for most consecutive attempts without an interception, Nick Foles finally made a bad decision—horrendous, in fact. While nursing a three-point lead with four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles floated a pass into the middle of the field, a desperation play made under…

  25. Hey, you can vote for Nick Foles in the Pro Bowl now

    Nov 30, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    foles-infograph

    Last week, we examined which Philadelphia Eagles might be deserving of a trip to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl this season, but lamented the fact that Nick Foles was not on the ballot. Well, now he is the team’s Twitter feed revealed on Saturday. Guess who’s finally on the 2014 Pro Bowl ballot … VOTE:…
