A tremendous photo of Nick Foles has made the cover of the newest Sports Illustrated magazine, and as soon as the cover leaked, tweeters are scared that this may be the beginning of the downfall of the eagles thanks to the "SI Cover Jinx".
Jinx aside, the cover is an tribute to what Nick Foles has done for the Eagles. Coming of the bench, Foles threw for 19 touchdowns in a row before throwing and INT. And even then, it took blizzard like conditions to stop his streak. On the season Foles has thrown for close to 2,000 yards with 20 TDs, 1 INT, and a QB rating of 120. He has led the team on a 5 game winning streak, first place in the NFC East, and has demonstrated a phenomenal understanding of the Chip Kelly offense.
Who knows what this cover will do to Foles and the Eagles. I personally only believe in the "Madden Jinx" and don't think this will have any effect. Foles can beat the "jinx" and solidify his place as the Eagles starter and franchise QB, or the jix will take him down, and force Kelly to heavily consider drafting a QB in the draft. Either way, the 2013 season is shaping up to have a very intriguing ending.
