The remainder of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season should be all about whether or not Nick Foles is the future of this franchise. Assuming he plays for the rest of the season, there are some things we can look for in order to determine if he is, in fact, the future.
If there is to be anymore excitement generated by the Eagles, it will be due to the play of Foles and how it energizes the rest of the team.
As I’ve stated previously, there is absolutely no reason to play Michael Vick any longer. There is nothing to be gained by sticking with Vick, unless you want the Eagles to lose as many more games as possible in order to get a better draft pick.
While having a top-10 pick next April would be a nice consolation prize for a crappy season, I’m more concerned with finding out if Foles has what it takes to be a good NFL quarterback. If he is, we won’t have to worry as much about landing that top-10 pick. If he’s not, then we’ll be getting that pick anyway.
