Nick Foles

  1. How many and which NFL starting QBs would you take over Foles right now?

    Nov 27, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    foles-spike

    A few days back, a long-time reader posed an interesting question on Twitter. To summarize, how many NFL quarterbacks would you rather have over Nick Foles right now? Seems like an appropriate question now that he’s officially been named the Eagles’ starter. It’s difficult to answer, too. Foles still only has 11 starts under his…

  2. Michael Vick reacts to Nick Foles being named Eagles starting QB

    Nov 26, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    It can’t be stressed enough how impressive Michael Vick’s handling of the entire Nick Foles situation has been. We’ve seen so many veteran quarterbacks become indignant when a kid comes in and takes their job, and I know based on the comments fans have made in the past 11 months that many expected Vick to…

  3. Worst kept secret: Chip Kelly names Nick Foles Eagles starting QB

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    How obvious was it that Nick Foles would remain the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the rest of the season? Even Michael Vick thought it would be crazy to pull the second-year passer now. Chip Kelly would not confirm Foles would be the Birds’ signal-caller when Vick returned from a hamstring injury however—until Tuesday that is.…

  4. Nick Foles had a historic month of November

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT

    foles

    Nick Foles has been downright impressive as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles — especially so over his past few games. Just how impressive has Foles been over the last few weeks? Check out this QB rating nugget for the month of November that was dug up by the NFL’s Director of NFC Football…

  5. Mike Vick says Nick Foles should remain the starter

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    For whatever reason, Chip Kelly doesn’t seem to be a fan of naming a starting QB. All of his intimations are that Nick Foles will be his guy. Nick is winning games and taking great care of the ball. That’s what Chip values at the position. So pretty much everybody agrees that Nick Foles should…

  6. Chip Kelly and Nick Foles mic’d up for the Redskins game is awesome

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Riley Cooper, Nick Foles

    The Sound FX clip over on the Eagles website of Chip Kelly and Nick Foles being mic’d up for Sunday’s win over the Redskins is fantastic. You get a glimpse into what the coach who loves speed is like on the sidelines and how everyone else, from the Eagles quarterback to the referees on the…

  7. Which Eagles belong in the Pro Bowl?

    Upon finishing up practice on Tuesday, the Eagles were officially on vacation until next week. That means come Sunday you’ll finally have time to rake the leaves, have dinner with your in-laws, or worse, fill out Pro Bowl ballots at NFL.com. The Pro Bowl has long been a punch line in NFL circles. Playing at…

  8. Foles: ‘Guys go to work knowing that we haven’t arrived—you never arrive.’

    Nov 17, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

    foles9

    What’s the secret to Nick Foles’ success this season? It’s quite simple, really. He just goes to work every day and tries to improve at his craft—that, and he channels the likes of Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Foles said it, not me. Upon leading the Eagles to a third-straight victory…

  9. Eagles post cartoon of Nick Foles as Napoleon Dynamite

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    Foles.Dynamite

    Not sure if you caught this earlier in the week but Nick Foles, the current starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles who has yet to throw an interception this season, was asked about the frequent comparison he gets to the character in the movie Napoleon Dynamite. “I get it a lot,” Foles said with a…

  10. Could Michael Vick remain in Philly beyond 2013—as a backup?

    Nov 13, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    Suppose Nick Foles plays well enough over the final six games in 2013 that the Eagles aren’t pigeonholed into drafting another quarterback. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t, but it’s not automatically the top priority going in. Between Foles and Matt Barkley, Philadelphia has two quarterbacks under contract for next season. Most teams carry three,…

  11. Time to put Foles, ‘Franchise QB’ convo on hold… for now

    Nov 12, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-spike

    Sure, Nick Foles has made some history. Last week tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in a game, was one of only three guys even to do it without an interception, and was the only one to do it with a perfect quarterback rating. On Sunday became one of only three passers to…

  12. Video: Chip Kelly names Reuben Frank starting quarterback

    Nov 11, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    chip-wave

    Bless an NFL beat reporters’ heart, for asking a head coach to reveal even the simplest piece of information—like who is the starting quarterback—can be more challenging than sneaking into Fort Knox. No, Chip Kelly isn’t ready to name Nick Foles the starter right now, no matter how many different ways it’s asked. And beware,…

  13. Eagles surpass last season’s win total 10 games into 2013

    Nov 10, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    eagles-d

    The Eagles might be a year or two away from contending for a championship—they don’t even know who their franchise quarterback is (or do they?)—but at least one thing is now certain. This year’s team is officially better than the 2012 iteration. After finishing 4-12 in Andy Reid’s final season as head coach, Philadelphia has…

  14. Eagles Extras: Rodgers injured, Nnamdi cut, Foles to the Hall of Fame

    foles jersey

    Nick Foles is Canton-bound! Well, his jersey is anyway. The Pro Football Hall of Fame requested some game-used gear from Foles’ historic seven-touchdown performance in Oakland, and what better than his white no. 9 to display in the museum of football? A few reporters were able to snap a quick photo of the jersey as…

  15. What’s next for Nick Foles?

    Nov 4, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    foles9

    Like everybody else, I’m having a little trouble wrapping my head around what Nick Foles accomplished in an Eagles uniform on Sunday. On one hand, I don’t care who you are or what the situation is, seven touchdowns in one game is damn impressive. There’s a reason only six other players in the 94-year history…

  16. Ray Emery: A true Philadelphia hero for our time

    Nov 4, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    ray.emery

    On Friday night, things were looking pretty ugly for the Flyers, and for our city too. The Flyers were down 7-0 to the Washington Capitals, in front of a hostile Wells Fargo Center crowd. In the third period, things looked pretty hopeless. At that point, some teams would have rolled over and died. Some teams…

  17. Nick Foles has thrown 7 TDs before… in a video game

    Nov 4, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles went out and threw an NFL record-tying 7 touchdowns on Sunday in Oakland. It was an amazing performance that almost nobody saw coming. Probably not even Nick Foles. “I don’t think Nick Foles ever seen anything on his film that would give him any indication that he’d throw for 7…

  18. Nick Foles ties NFL record with seven touchdown passes

    Nov 3, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    nick.foles.cooper

    Even those folks who have been clamoring for Nick Foles to be the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the season couldn’t have seen this coming. Foles threw more touchdown passes than incompletions in the Birds’ 49-20 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, tying the NFL single-game record with seven scores. Foles’ line: 22-of-28…

  19. Nick Foles was on fire in the first half

    Nov 3, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT

    Eagles Raiders Football

    The Eagles lead the Oakland Raiders 28-13 after the first half thanks in large part to the impressive play of Nick Foles and Riley Cooper. Foles was 15-19 in the first two quarters, good for 260 yards and 4 touchdowns to 0 interceptions. Foles had a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the half. The Birds…

  20. Eagles-Raiders: Will Nick Foles rebound? Can Birds score a touchdown?

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    It’s been three weeks—21 full days—since Nick Foles placed a 36-yard rainbow between three defenders and into DeSean Jackson’s waiting arms in Tampa Bay. That was the last time the Eagles’ offense reached the end zone. Over the past two games we’ve seen Foles regress to Bobby Hoying levels of ineptitude, watched as Michael Vick…

  21. Catching up on some big Eagles storylines heading into Week 9: Foles starting, Sopoaga traded and winning the division

    Oct 31, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    eagles-logo

    The Eagles are coming off of back-to-back losses to division rivals at the Linc by a combined score of 32-10. Chip Kelly’s offense has not produced a touchdown since October 13 against the winless Tampa Bay Bucs. We’re at the midway point in the season, and the buzz around Philadelphia has clearly shifted as many…

  22. Reminder for Chip Kelly: the Broncos won games with Tim Tebow at QB

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    barkley

    Practically every Eagles fan understands this team in all likelihood does not have its franchise quarterback. For all the words that were spent on Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley and which one should or should not start, there are legitimate doubts that any one of them could ever be the man in Philadelphia. Chip…

  23. Injuries muddy Eagles quarterback situation for Week 8

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Vick and Foles

    Philadelphia’s quarterback controversy may have been laid to rest, but as of Monday it still isn’t clear who will start against the Giants in Week 8. If healthy, it will be Michael Vick—but that’s a big if. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly refused to name a starter during his day-after press conference on the grounds…

  24. Busted: Nick Foles plays worst game as a pro on big stage versus Dallas

    Oct 20, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-dallas

    Chip Kelly’s analysis of Nick Foles’ performance in a 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys: “He was off.” You can say that again. And again. And again. Amid calls from fans and writers (such as myself) for Foles to take over the reins as the Eagles’ starting quarterback from Michael Vick, the second-year quarterback…

  25. Marcus Vick: Nick Foles supporters are ‘silly peasants’ and Eagles fans are ‘dumb motherf***ers’

    Oct 20, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-10-20 at 3.28.36 PM

    Paging all you silly peasants and dumb mother– nevermind. Marcus Vick took to Twitter Sunday to rub in an especially insufferable first half of Eagles football with his typically insufferable tweets. And now, Marcus’ thoughts, as Nick Foles was going 11 for 29 for 80 yards while getting sacked three times. Bear in mind, this…
