It looks like the Philadelphia Eagles have found their quarterback of the future. Nick Foles has looked very good in his last couple of starts and is a guy the team can truly build around.
He has shown great poise in the pocket and has even shown some hints of mobility although he wasn’t regarded as a very mobile quarterback. Due to the Eagles sub-par offensive line, Foles has been under constant pressure in the pocket all season. Unlike Vick however, Foles is a big guy at 6ft 6 inches and can take hits in the pocket without getting injured or losing the ball.
When the offensive line has played even halfway decent, Foles has shredded up opposing defenses. He has been averaging a total of 235 yards per game in his last 5 starts. If the Eagles can build around Foles by adding a few quality linemen, he could be the guy that takes them to the promised land.
