Bone Still Bruised

Ian Rapoport has mentioned via twitter that "coach Chip Kelly says at his press conference that Nick Foles’ bone has not healed. He’s out this week."

Pyro's take: Well the Sanchez train keeps plowing ahead. By the time Foles does make it back, your season will be over, but if you have the room and can roster him, then roll with it, stranger things have happened.

Broken Collarbone

Derrick Gunn is reporting via twitter that "League source confirms foles has a broken collar bone .... MRI on Monday will determine how long he's out"

Pyro's take: At this point he will probably miss a month, if the MRI shows ligament damage/tears, it could be a lot longer. Either case, grab a back-up, if your league doesnt count interceptions, Mark Sanchez played admirably.

Foles Shakey

Through most of the first half Nick Foles looked like the quarterback last season, as he threw completed 14 passes in 20 attempts, 177 yards, and two touchdowns. Then another side showed up, the one that he just cant escape from. With the Eagles on the Giants' 16-yard line, Foles tried dump-off to the sidelines, but did not see Antrel Rolle, standing right in front of Darren Sproles.

Early in the third quarter, he made a similar mistake, this time he threw late, and the pass went right into belly of Giants cornerback Zach Bowman. It was Foles' 10th turnover, the most in the league, and his seventh interception.

The difference between last season and this is perception. People bought into Foles being perfect, throwing just two interceptions, making his imperfections this season magnified.

He finished Sunday with respectable numbers - 21 for 34, 248 yards, two touchdowns. "I made a couple of dumb mistakes with the football that I will work on," he said. "I can fix those things. They're not over my head."


Pyro's take: Nick Foles regardless of the situation is the starter in Philadelphia. Even though he has struggled with some "bone-head" plays, he is a skilled starter, who is dealing with change. DeSean Jackson is gone, and teams had an off-season to prepare for his tendencies.

Foles will use the bye-week to work on his 9:7 touchdown to interception ratio, and try to bump his yards as well.

Foles folds away the day

Nick Foles didn't have the best day against the San Francisco 49ers. He finished with just 21-of-43 pass attempts, or 48.8 percent. "The last time he completed fewer than 50 percent of his pass attempts was October 20, 2013, when the Eagles lost to the Cowboys, 17-3."

Foles also felt that he performed below his standards "I definitely missed some throws that I want to hit, and that's something I'll work towards this week," Foles said. "My job as a quarterback is, when that ball's in my hand, to deliver the ball to where my receivers can catch it, and there were a couple of times where I just let it out there just a little too far."

The difference came in between the distinction of the short and long passing tree. His short game was on, but when he decided to take it deep, he was very unsuccessful. "I've definitely tried to just take some shots, stretch them out a little bit," Foles explained. "I need to be a little more accurate, that's what I'm working on this week, working on that, and staying clean in the pocket so I can deliver the ball to our guys where they can go up and make a play, not where the ball lands in front of them."

Pyro's take: Nick Foles has been a steady producer this season, minus the 49ers game he had thrown for six touchdowns and 978 yards in three games, with just two interceptions. Then the visit to San Francisco turned everything upside down. Now, after four games he has 1173 yards passing six touchdowns and four interceptions. 195 yards passing with two interceptions and no touchdowns, will turn a three week strong streak into a statistical nightmare.

Foles takes on the St. Louis Rams this week and should continue where he left off in week three.

Musgrave impressed by Foles

Quarterback coach Bill Musgrave was in awe about how well Nick Foles can process everything on the field "You can see so much on film, but when you're out there with them you can see how they process, and Nick can really process." Musgrave did not stop there. He went on to say about Foles "We know he's a gifted athlete. He can throw the ball exactly where he wants to. He can add air, add touch. He can add velocity and really drive it when it's needed. But to see the way that he can visualize formations, coverages, and process what he sees has been impressive."

Bill Musgrave did mention that Nick Foles needs to take less hits, get rid of the ball faster, and move the ball forward with his legs when needed.

Pyro's take: Its probably easy to impress Bill Musgrave after his tenure at Minnesota, and the slop they have had quarterback, but Nick Foles is the real deal, as he put up 27 touchdowns and 2,891 yards in just 11 weeks of full-time play. He can also tuck the ball and run as he had 221 yards rushing on 57 attempts. Combine that with the explosive Chip Kelly offense, and Foles may just end up as top five passer this year.

Foles has been amazing, but still not named Eagles starter

Kelly said Monday his two biggest QB criteria are wins and interceptions. Foles is 4-1 as a starter this season and none of his 162 throws has been intercepted.

Asked Monday whether Foles' 152.8 passer rating over the past three weeks is an example of extraordinary quarterbacking or just competent running of his offense, Kelly said: "It's always about the individual. It doesn't matter what plays are called or schemes are run, they still have to be executed. I think he is executing them. All the credit goes to him. He spends a lot of time, he works extremely hard at it. He's got a real good grasp of what we're doing. He's extremely accurate in his throws. He's doing a great job of just making decisions and not putting the ball in harm's way ... He's a really, really good decision-maker. It's exciting to see him grow there."

Pyro's take: Chip Kelly seems have taken a lot of cues from Bill Belichick in terms of how he handles the media. Since Vick injured his hamstring the second time, Foles has won 3 straight games, and has been nearly perfect in doing so.

Foles will remain the starter after the bye week. There is no way Kelly can justify benching Nick for Vick after putting the Eagles in position to control their destiny in their division. I also know that Philly is a tough town, and the fans will not be happy if Foles were replaced by Vick in week 13. If Foles were to struggle, I also have no problem believing that the fans could be screaming for Kelly to go with Vick. Love ya Philly!

Can Foles follow up his brilliant game?

When Nick Foles is good, he’s really, really good.

This streakiness has shown up most notably in his deep attempts. Against Tampa Bay and Oakland, he threw 10 passes longer than 20 yards, completing eight of them for 295 yards and six touchdowns. Sandwiched between those efforts was the ugly game against Dallas, in which his longest gain all day netted just 14 yards.

When he’s been on, Foles’ numbers have been equally absurd in the screen game, which thanks to Chip Kelly now comprises a dizzying array of short throws attacking every area of the field.

Pyro's take: Foles and the Eagles will be taking on the battered, bruised and injured Green Bay Packers this week, and Nick will be looking to continue his hot streak. The Packers allowed Josh McCown to exploit their defense on Monday Night, and there is no reason to think that Foles and Chip Kelly have a few things in store for them this week. If you own Foles it will be hard to sit him for this match-up.

Foles named starter by Mike Vick

Nick Foles will start his second consecutive game Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys visit, according to Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.

Vick declared himself out for Sunday's game while he recovers from a pulled left hamstring.

“No I’m not playing this week," Vick said. "Not this week.”

Earlier in the day, Kelly was unclear on Vick's status. Vick and Foles did a joint news conference after practice.

“Every day’s just working, trying to get better," Vick said of his recovery.


Pyro's take: It is now official that Foles will start this week. Chip Kelly has been hemming and hawing on this all week and it took Vick himself to put an end to that nonsense.

Foles now has the chance to cement his claim to the starting job in Philadelphia. I have been saying that this would happen since the get go and now is the time for Foles to put an end to this folly, beat the Cowboys and win the starting job. If Chip Kelly is looking to have a longer tenure than all the other failed college coaches, he better get behind Foles and stay there.

Chip Kelly speaks about Foles

Q. How would you evaluate Nick's performance when you saw it on tape?

COACH KELLY: I thought Nick did a really nice job, really, really happy with how we performed within our offense. Did a good job of taking what the defense gave us. There were a lot of times he got us out of some bad plays and into some good ones with some decisions he made, so we were really happy with how Nick played.

Q. What qualities does Nick have that make him so productive and efficient in the red zone?

COACH KELLY: He executes the plays that we call. A lot of our red zone, we just didn't do [earlier] ‑‑ I didn't do a good job calling plays and putting ourselves in good situations; and I think we called plays and Nick put the ball where we are supposed to be.

Q. Does it give you any competitive advantage to not name the starting quarterback this week until Sunday or when you play?

COACH KELLY: I don't think so. I mean, I think they are still going to practice.

Pyro's take: This was a very interesting press conference for Kelly, as the press was trying to get him to name a starter. The best thing for Coach Chip is that Vick most likely will not be at 100% this week, thus not starting. If Foles has another game like this and wins, the job will be his.
