Nick Foles just completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, and 7 touchdowns against a defense ESPN had ranked as the 5th best in the NFL coming into the game. That, according to Bleacher Report writer Mike Freeman, means absolutely nothing. Freeman made a complete fool of himself in the article. Here’s the beginning of the stupidity: In tying the NFL record for touchdowns in a game with seven, what Foles did was take advantage of today’s NFL. That isn’t hard. You know why it isn’t hard? Because Nick freaking Foles did it. Yeah, Nick Foles is so bad. He had an awful performance Week 7 against Dallas, where he only complete 37.9% of his passes for 80 yards. That’s a bad game. His other start? Oh, he threw for 296 yards, 3 touchdowns, ran it in for another score. But I guess that game doesn’t matter because it’s “Nick freaking Foles”? Give me a break. Then Freeman attempts to say that Foles is the worst QB to ever throw 7 touchdowns in a game: These are some of the quarterbacks who have thrown seven touchdowns in a game: Y.A. Tittle—Hall of Famer. George Blanda—Hall of Famer. Joe Kapp—only player to quarterback in the Super Bowl, Rose Bowl and Grey Cup. And Peyton Manning—future Hall of Famer. Maybe you’ve heard of him. Then Nick Foles. Which name doesn’t belong on that list? Well, Joe Kapp was drafted in the 18th round of the 1959 NFL Draft. He played most of his career in the CFL until he played a whopping 4 years in the NFL. But yeah, Foles is just the worst and doesn’t deserve this honor. Freeman continually makes references to the NFL rule changes throughout his article — which would be okay, if he hadn’t written an article praising Peyton Manning for throwing 7 TDs in the Broncos’ season opener. Nick Foles had a career day. He’ll likely never surpass those numbers again. He said after the game that he slowed the game down. Maybe his concussion knocked something into place, and things are clicking. Completely discrediting his accomplishment is ridiculous.
