Who is the Best?


Not many people could name the quarterback that has the highest QB rating. Payton? No. Brady? Nope. Luck maybe? Negative. The Eagles quarterback, Nick Foles. Foles has a 128 QB Rating, 16 TD, 0 INTs, 1,554 yards all through 8 games. There were questions surrounding the quarterback position of the eagles all offseason and even throughout the season. Is Vick going to return and take over the team with Chip Kelly’s new offense? Will Foles be able to keep up with the pace of the offense as a pocket passer? He shut down the critics with a 7 TD game tying the NFL record against Oakland. He got his first start in week 5 after Mike Vick struggled with injures in the first 4 weeks.

When the 6-5 Eagles have Foles they have been 5-3, and 4 out of the 5 wins have been by a margin of at least 10 points including the 49-20, 7 TD win over the Raiders. The Eagles will be hosting the 7-4 Cardinals and with the Cowboys pulling away and taking 1st place of the NFC East on thanksgiving, paths Eagles will have to win the divisions to make the playoffs and to do that they will have to play very well against a tough second half of the schedule including going to Dallas in week 16.
