Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has officially named Nick Foles as the starting quarterback for the rest of the season. In a move that surprises no one, Foles has played too well to bench. In the 6 full games he has played for the Eagles this season, Foles has thrown for 1,505 yards and 15 touchdowns while rushing for 123 yards and 2 more touchdowns, which has keyed the Eagles to a 4-2 record. The Eagles and Kelly are trying to figure out if Foles is on a great run if he is simply a great quarterback and someone that can lead them into the future.
Even Michael Vick has made comments to the point that while he thinks he can still be a starter in the league, Foles is just playing too well and needs to continue playing. This is a tremendous show of respect from Vick for Foles and one that is not commonplace.
The Eagles have found themselves with a great chance to win the NFC East when it looked like they could have been headed for a disaster earlier in the year. Foles and the Eagles come out of their bye week to take on the Arizona Cardinals at home.
