A Foles Led Eagles Doesn't Mean Tanking It.

Posted July 10, 2013

The truth is we don't know what it will mean. Reports out of OTAs had Foles looking sharp and accurate. If the Eagles can find a way to move the football with their offense and score touchdowns they could “DO A BETTER JOB” of protecting the defense unlike previous seasons. Kelly has repeatedly stated he wants his quarterback to make good quick decisions and to be accurate with the football.  These are two aspects of Foles game that he excels at. Foles along with a triple dose of arguable they deepest backfield in football could find the Eagles and their new short passing game churning yards, protecting the football, and eating up clock. The Eagles can vastly improve from last season by simply being better at protecting the football. How many times did we see our defense placed in bad situations, because the offense had a turnover? Let’s just say it was far too many times to want to remember. With the improved line, a commitment to run the football, and an accurate quarterback the Eagles will be better than last season. It will all come down to how quickly members of the offense can learn the new system, and how quickly they can unlearn all of their bad habits like Celek not looking the ball into his hands, Brown/McCoy holding the ball away from their body, receivers committing to route running, and run blocking. Hopefully a couple of these new young receivers will make this roster and become a legitimate Red Zone threat. The Eagles really haven’t had a receiving RDZ threat since T.O. left. This team needs one of these guys to develop. If these things fall into place the Eagles actually could become a playoff contender sooner than expected.
