Nick Foles will start again this week

Eagles offensive coordinator Mike Groh said on Tuesday that the team had decided on a starting quarterback for their Week Two game against the Buccaneers, but that a public announcement would not come until head coach Doug Pederson spoke to the media on Wednesday.

Pederson has delivered that announcement and it is the expected one. Nick Foles will be in the lineup in Tampa on Sunday afternoon.

The decision was an easy one as Pederson also said that Carson Wentz has not been cleared for contact by the team’s medical staff. A report over the weekend indicated that Week Three’s game against the Colts may be a realistic point for Wentz to make his first start since tearing his ACL last season.

Foles was 19-of-34 for 117 yards and an interception in last Thursday’s 18-12 victory over the Falcons.

    He’s won some pretty important games in his career.

    ________________________________________________

    you mean his defense has won him some pretty important games, right? because without his defense they lose to the Falcons in the first round last year the way he played

  2. Most teams laud the opportunity for a match up against the backup QB.

    But these are the Bucs we’re talking about!

    Something about backup QBs just gets the Bucs going in the wrong direction (i.e. Foles w/ Eagles, Keenum w/ Rams, Anderson w/ Panthers).

    Hopefully week one was not a fluke!

    Sunday can’t come soon enough!

    Go Bucs!

  3. Nick Foles is an incredibly streaky QB. And, when he gets on a hot streak he is amongst the best in the league and I look for him to get on a hot streak beginning with Tampa. After he struggled against Atlanta in the playoffs he began his last hot streak and shredded the Vikings and Patriots’ defenses. Look for history to repeat itself.

    Yes they did. He won the NFC Championship and Super Bowl though, so I’m ok with it.

    Now with Hargreaves out, this becomes a blowout. Eagles 27 Bucs 10

  5. Wasn’t it in Tampa that Nick threw a pass to Jeremy Maclin in the end-zone to win the game on the last play while Andy Reid was still the coach?

  6. Eagles are a class organization with integrity from the top down, good chemistry…they are likely to win another SB this year. Chemistry and quality leadership trumps just raw talent every time.

    Yeah and he also lit up the Vikings like a Christmas tree on fire, put up huge numbers against the Patriots, led a come back two minute drive in the SB . . . and oh yeah, was named the Superbowl MVP.

    Is he the best quarterback in the NFL, no way, but Nick Foles is at least in the top half of the QBs starting this week and close to a top 10 QB. I’ll tell you right now I would rather have him instead of Dak, any day of the week and twice on that all important game day!!!

    Wentz. That dude is broke. Couldn’t even make it for one complete season.

    Last year was his second season , so he made it 28 staright games without getting ” broke” as you put it .haters gonna hate hahaha Go EAGLES !!!!!!

  12. If the refs stay put of the way foles will find his rhythm against the bucs and the super bowl champion Eagles defense will do what it always does come up big
