This Is A Big Game For Nick Foles.

Posted August 28, 2013
Despite playing with scabs and backups desperately trying to make the roster, this is a big game for Foles. It's his last chance to leave an impression. Well at least until Vick gets injured in plays himself to the bench like he has in the past. This game Foles can leave a good or bad impression on everyone. If Foles comes out and has an outstanding game it will leave quite an impression on people, and also let Mike Vick know that he's still here so don't screw up. Sure many if the Foles detractors will simply say that it was against backups, but will ignore the fact Foles was playing with backups. Of course those detractors also ignore the fact Foles broke Eagles rookie records in completions, completion percentage, and yards while playing mostly with backups against other teams first string players all while having a lame duck coach. The Eagles aren't planning on drafting another quarterback next season, because they believe they already have their quarterback of the future. If Foles goes out there and lights up the Jets, and Mike Vick struggles within the first three weeks of the season (all winnable games) then the future could be sooner than we think.
