Can Foles Redeem Himself?

Posted October 31, 2013
My guess is no not yet. That doesn't mean that I believe Foles will have a bad game on the contrary I think he will bounce back nicely since the coach will likely provide an improved game plan over his recent ones. What I mean is despite what Nick Foles does in a positive way, the fanbase will not get back onboard with him until he shows he can be consistent and stay healthy. He also is going to have to show he can win the pressure games. The Dallas game was for the most part a pressure game and Foles came up very small and was injured. The overly pro Foles people took a page out of the overly Vick people's play book and blamed it all on an injury. Foles himself tried to down play it as just having a bad game. Watching the game from the stadium it looked like he just choked plain and simple. The best way for Nick to get EVERYBODY on board with him would be to stay healthy and win football games. He's got a softy coming up in Oakland. A very winnable game against an extremely beatable team. If the guy who showed up against Tampa is there then the Eagles win easily, but if the guy who played afraid in Dallas shows up it could be a tough one for Philly. With the Eagles defense improving every week, and Chip Kelly looking to quiet some of his doubters along with Foles, my gut is telling me Eagles win 24-10. On a side note how about MCW last night! 9 steals in his rookie debut! Way to go young man! Sixers knocking of the Heat is a pretty nice feat. Now they need to stop this, because they are ruining their lottery chances already.
