Found April 05, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
No matter how you sell it, I’m just not buying Nick Foles as the starting QB for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.  Though this subject had been somewhat lying low, it just popped up again recently after Foles was interviewed this week. He was asked several questions about the potential of him being the starter as well as being a fit in Kelly’s offense.  Some beat reporters tweeted that he was a “little edgy” in his responses, but here are a few quotes from Foles as provided by Jeff McLane and Zach Berman: “I wouldn’t be here right now if I didn’t [think I could start],” Foles said Wednesday at the NovaCare Complex as the Eagles continued offseason workouts. “I think I would be somewhere else. Yeah, I believe I fit here.” “Chip hadn’t defined an offense; it’s just up-tempo,” Foles said. “I remember playing against him in college, and I believe whoever the quarterback is, whoever’s on your team, you build your offense around that. I felt like I can go in and run everything.
