Nick Foles is going to the Pro Bowl

With the change to a conference-less format for this year’s Pro Bowl, the results of the AFC playoffs have led to the addition of a quarterback from the NFC to the Pro Bowl roster.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will be added to the team with the Broncos and Patriots set to square off in the AFC Championship Game. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were each selected to the Pro Bowl, which means one will have to drop out in order to prepare for the Super Bowl alongside his teammates. With Russell Wilson trying to get the Seahawks to the Meadowlands as well, there may be another spot opening up at quarterback.

Foles finished the season with 27 touchdowns and two interceptions, a ratio that probably would have gotten him named to the team outright if he had started more than 10 games this season. He joins running back LeSean McCoy as Eagles players on the roster with left tackle Jason Peters bowing out in favor of Texans tackle Duane Brown last week.

Foles won’t be the only alternate called up this week. With Marshawn Lynch and Frank Gore at running back and Logan Mankins and Louis Vasquez at guard, there are two more spots in need of filling before the Super Bowl matchup has been set.

    Everyone makes the Pro Bowl. It’s a massive participation trophy.

    The young man deserves it.

    Nick Foles will be a great QB in this league!
    All of the jealous fans of other teams and the delusional Michael Vick lovers need to stop hating and get a grip on reality already.
    Especially Cowgirl and Midget fans: you know you will never see Eli and Romo throw 27 TDs and only 2 ints.
    Heck Eli averages nearly 2 ints…per game!

    Didn’t Wilson have a mediocre year statswise? Another popularity contest winner for the pro bowl. They should really get rid of that game and just have an awards show like the espys. The fantasy football gimmick only detracts further from any respect the game and selections once had.

    If enough players drop out, maybe the Packers could get someone into the Pro Bowl.

    I am glad to see that Nick Foles is going to the Pro Bowl, he is as deserving as anyone to play in that game.

    I do take issue with rkt4mayor’s comments.

    You have the right to poke fun at Tony Romo and Eli Manning but in return I offer you the end-all-be-all of arguments.

    Manning has more Super Bowl rings than the entire Philadelphia Eagles franchise.

    Since this story is highlighting an achievement for an Eagles player, it doesn’t mean you need to bash the NFC East.

    Let’s hope he locks the doors at his house when out of town to play in this game.

    Foles will emerge as a great QB, just what the nfl needs once the Brady’s, manning’s and Brees retire

    27 : 2 wow…that’s pretty impressive…well done Nick. Hope to see you have many good years ahead

  12. trapshoot says: Jan 13, 2014 11:07 AM

    Well deserbed.. He’s developed into a very good QB.

    C’mon ChalKruz1989, That’s the Eagles fans shtick. Building themselves up by beating everyone else down.

    Only team in the NFC East without a Super Bowl win. They hate one of the best QBs to ever wear their uniform. All that’s left for them is to tear down teams that actually get it done when it counts.

    G Evan Mathis will also be joined by teammates Nick and LeSean at the Pro Bowl.

    Great year for Nick Foles! He definately deserves this.

  16. 1uofapatsfan says: Jan 13, 2014 5:07 PM

    Happy for Nick Foles. Had a solid year. Lowest Pick to TD ratio of a new starter in some time. Congrats Nick!
