Nick Foles entered the 2014 season as the unrivaled starting quarterback of the Eagles coming off an incredible Pro Bowl 2013 season that saw him complete 64.0% of his passes for 2,891 yards in 10 starts with 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions. The question was whether or not he could repeat his 2013 performance for the duration of the 2014 season.
The answer was no. Foles was shaky in the early part of the season before going down with a broken collarbone against the Houston Texans in Week 9. There are questions moving forward whether or not Foles is the guy for the Eagles.
Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur spoke with Tim McManus of Birds 24/7 about Foles and where he stands in the eyes of the coaches. Shurmur stated, "I think we know what we have in Nick. We’ve seen a guy that by last count I think is 14-4 as a starter (under Chip Kelly). So that’s really how you judge a quarterback."
Foles, 25, completed 59.8% of his passes for 2,163 yards, 13 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and four fumbles. In five fewer games than last season, Foles only attempted six fewer passes but posted 728 fewer yards.
