Chip Kelly: Mark Sanchez signing a 'no-brainer'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he's excited about the addition of quarterback Mark Sanchez, who's expected to back up Nick Foles.

"I've said many times that we will always look to add quality players at the quarterback position," Kelly said. ""We consider it a key position in this game, so having the chance to add Mark to that group was a no-brainer for us.

"Mark has started 68 games in his career and has taken his teams deep into the playoffs multiple times, so we really like what he brings to the table from an experience standpoint. I also had the chance to see Mark play in college and have always had respect for his game and athletic ability."


Nick Foles will miss DeSean Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles lost his favorite target when the team released DeSean Jackson. According to ESPN, Foles targeted Jackson more than any other receiver (70 times) last season and completed 71.4 percent of those passes to him.

In addition, quarterbacks throwing to Jackson posted a 124.4 passer rating last year -- highest of any wideout.

While Foles is losing Jackson, he'll get receiver Jeremy Maclin back from a knee injury.


Matt Barkley loses shot at backup job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley had a realistic shot at backing up Nick Foles -- until the team agreed to terms Thursday with Mark Sanchez. Now Barkley, a fourth-round pick out of USC last year, figures to compete with G.J. Kinne for the third-string job.

Barkley played in four games last year, completing 30 of 49 throws for 300 yards and no touchdowns. He tossed four interceptions and lost a fumble.


Chip Kelly has to-do list for Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said quarterback Nick Foles, who threw 27 touchdowns and two interceptions last season, has plenty of room for improvement, reports Philly.com.

"Now, it's the intricacies of it," Kelly said about Foles' development. "Exactly what is my footwork? How is my ballhandling? How can I do a better job when I don't have the ball, how can I do a better job faking? What can I do . . . to influence the coverage, how can I move the safety, because I really want to throw the post. Instead of just going, 'Hey, the safety's on the post, I gotta throw the checkdown.'

"That's the one thing about Nick that's so encouraging is, he always wants to get better. I think he improved as the season went along. A lot of times, you'll see some players kind of plateau, but I think he continued to improve."


Matt Barkley healthier entering Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley had a shoulder injury that "bothered him more than he let on last summer, and he's healthy now," reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. While the Eagles remain high on their 2013 fourth-round pick, Barkley "needs a strong spring and summer for the team to believe he can be a trustworthy backup quarterback," the report said.

The paper expects Michael Vick to leave via free agency. Barkley threw four interceptions and no touchdowns in spot duty last year.


Michael Vick: I want to be a starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Eagles backup quarterback Michael Vick would rather start for a struggling team than serve as a backup for a Super Bowl contender. He will find out more about his future when he officially becomes a free agent in March.

"If it came down to that, I would have to lean in the direction of playing," he told the Philadelphia Daily News. "That's just being candid and being honest. I feel like I've still got a lot of football to give."

Vick, who will be 34 years old when the 2014 season begins, will almost assuredly not return to Philadelphia, where Pro Bowler Nick Foles wrested the starting spot away and Matt Barkley could be groomed as his understudy.

He performed respectably before a hamstring injury allowed Foles to take his job. He completed 55 percent of his passes for 1,215 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.


Nick Foles named Offensive MVP of Pro Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was unable to lead Team Sanders to victory in the Pro Bowl, but he still was named offensive MVP. Foles completed 7 of 10 throws for 89 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown to Browns tight end Jordan Cameron.

The touchdown put Team Sanders ahead 21-14 with 4:41 remaining, setting the stage for Team Rice's comeback.


Chip Kelly sold on Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Chip Kelly called quarterback Nick Foles "a great decision-maker" as the coach put the wraps on the Eagles' season.

“I think he’s extremely accurate where he puts the ball," Kelly added, per Birds 24/7. "I think he’s very young, and I think people still sometimes forget about that. He didn’t become our starter until after Mike [Vick] went down in the Giants game. But in the short body of work he did, I think he did an outstanding job.

“Our evaluations are based on demonstrated abilities, and he demonstrated during the time that he was in there that he deserved to be the starting quarterback.”


No quarterback went deep more often than Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw deep on 17.4 percent of his passes, the highest rate among all quarterbacks, according to Pro Football Focus. Deep passes are defined as those targeted 20 or more yards downfield.

Foles ranked seventh in accuracy on deep throws, completing 25 of 55 for 803 yards and 14 touchdowns against one interception. Only Drew Brees threw more touchdowns (15) on deep balls, a fact that's more impressive considering Foles started only 10 games.


Nick Foles impresses enough to earn chance at raise


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/6/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles drew praise from owner Jeffrey Lurie following his impressive 2013 campaign, but that doesn't mean he's guaranteed anything next season.

"I don't want to comment on any player, but how can you not be impressed with Nick, with everything he has accomplished," Lurie said immediately after the Eagles' 26-24 playoff loss to the Saints on Saturday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "He had no turnovers and led us back from 20-7. He is incredibly impressive."

Foles led the league in passer rating and set an NFL record in touchdown-to-interception ratio. The Eagles have Foles under contract at his rookie deal and will pay him $615,000 in 2014. After that, he will be eligible for a pay raise, which he could help himself by having another big season.

The Eagles will go into 2014 with Foles as the starter, and the report said he "should improve with a full offseason as the No. 1 guy and another year with Chip Kelly."


Michael Vick outlines plans for 2014


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, an impending free agent, told CSNPhilly.com he wants to start somewhere next season but is open to returning as Nick Foles' backup "if all else fails."

"My skill set is still there, my arm is still there, my legs are still there, I'm still a playmaker, that's evident," Vick said. "I'm playing again next year. That's the way I look at it. I know at some point I'll be back out there."

If there are no takers, Vick said he'd consider coming back to Philly for his 12th NFL season. “Yeah, if it doesn’t work out, if all else fails, absolutely,” he said. “You can never rule that out.

“It all depends what happens, where I’m at in my career. Never rule it out. But I’m not thinking of that right now. I’m not thinking about the future. I’m just thinking about doing whatever I can to help this team win a Super Bowl.”


Beat goes on for Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles continued his superb play Week 17 at Dallas, completing 17 of 26 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He did lose a fumble.

Foles, who faced heavy pressure and was sacked five times, finishes the regular season with 30 touchdowns (3 rushing) against four turnovers. Against Dallas he found running back LeSean McCoy for a 3-yard touchdown and tight end Brent Celek for a 14-yard score, both in the second quarter.

Foles faces the Saints in a Saturday playoff game.


Nick Foles will atone for first game vs. Dallas


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Nick Foles is not the same quarterback who faced the Cowboys in Week 7. In that game, Foles hit 11 of 29 throws for 80 yards and no touchdowns before suffering a concussion. It was his second start in place of Michael Vick, and Foles was erratic.

Foles enters Week 17 at Dallas as the league's top-rated passer (118.8). He's thrown 25 touchdowns against two interceptions and rushed for three more scores.

"When you have a new coaching staff and new players, you are going to grow and have growing pains," the 24-year-old Foles told USA Today. "You are going to have good moments and you are going to have bad moments. The key to them is how you are going to respond to each moment."

Foles responded well, obviously, and should redeem himself against Dallas. The Cowboys have fallen apart defensively since the first meeting. They give up the second-most Fantasy points (24.9 per game) to opposing quarterbacks. QBs have accounted for 10 touchdowns and two turnovers vs. Dallas the past three weeks.

Foles is a top-3 play Sunday night.


Nick Foles extremely accurate in rout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21 of 25 throws for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the blowout of Chicago. His 84.0 completion percentage marked a season high.

Undoubtedly benefitting from a strong run game, Foles has accounted for 28 touchdowns and three turnovers in 12 games. On Sunday night he spread the ball around, six receivers totaling between 26 and 58 yards.

Foles threw both his scoring passes in the first quarter, hitting wideout Riley Cooper on a 5-yarder and tight end Brent Celek from 10 yards out. Foles added two rushes for 17 yards.

He wraps up his incredible regular season Week 17 at Dallas.


Nick Foles looks to improve on 428-yard performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) With 26 touchdowns against three turnovers, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles ranks third in weekly scoring (23.9) in standard Fantasy leagues entering Week 16. Only Peyton Manning and Drew Brees score more.

Foles is coming off a career-high 428 passing yards in the loss at Minnesota, and he ran for 41 more. It was actually one of his poorer efforts. He underthrew DeSean Jackson for his second interception this season and piled up much of his yardage against soft coverage.

"I definitely missed some throws," Foles told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I was high on a few and inaccurate on a few, and those are things that you go back to the film and see why it was."

The Bears give up the 8th-fewest Fantasy points (16.7 per game) to quarterbacks and have allowed one 300-yard passing game all year. But Foles is matchup-proof at this point. He's thrown at least three touchdowns in four of his past six starts.

CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rate Foles the No. 2 quarterback play behind Peyton Manning for Fantasy's championship week. 


Nick Foles has another strong game Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles turned in another big game Week 15 against the Vikings.

Foles finished the contest 30 for 48, with 428 yards and three touchdowns. Foles also managed to throw a two-point conversion. He had one interception. DeSean Jackson was Foles' primary target. Foles targeted Jackson 16 times, and connected on 10 of those throws. The team had a tough time running against Minnesota, so Foles had to air it out against a poor Vikings secondary. Foles also ran the ball five times for 41 yards, which actually led the team. 

He'll look to continue his hot streak Week 16 against the Bears.


Only two hurt among those on Eagles inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Safety Earl Wolff (knee) and linebacker Najee Goode (hamstring) are the lone injured players on the inactive list submitted by the Eagles on Sunday.

Their healthy scratches are quarterback Matt Barkley, tackles Matt Tobin and Dennis Kelly, running back Matthew Tucker and cornerback Curtis Marsh.


Nick Foles a fine Fantasy play against Lions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Fantasy owners of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles should not only thank Nick Foles for the production of Nick Foles. They should also thank a 32nd-ranked Philadelphia pass defense that forces Foles to try to keep up by throwing the ball.

Not that Foles hasn't risen to the occasion. The Eagles are 5-2 since he was moved into the starting lineup. He has completed 124 of 196 passes for 1,791 yards, 19 touchdowns and - get this - zero interceptions. He has even added 145 yards and two scores on the ground.

More encouraging this week is that he is playing at home against pass-happy Detroit and a high-scoring game should result. The Lions rank 26th in the NFL in passing yards allowed (3,147) and 19th in touchdowns yielded through the air (21).

Foles is so torrid that a statistical correction could happen any week. But the combination of an explosive Lions pass offense against a terrible Eagles pass defense makes it unlikely that Foles won't put up big numbers on Sunday. The three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers all rank Foles in the top six among NFL quarterbacks in Week 14. Sounds about right - he should be active in all formats.


Nick Foles has three touchdowns in win


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21-of-34 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Cardinals. It was the third time in his last four games with three or more touchdowns. 

Foles, who also ran nine times for 22 yards, avoided throwing his first interception this season in close fashion; a fourth quarter pass was picked off by Patrick Peterson, but called back on a Cardinals penalty. Otherwise, Foles looked efficient throughout the game, throwing deep on occasion and being the same quarterback he was before the bye. 

Foles and the Eagles face the Lions in Week 14. 


Nick Foles is a sneaky source of rushing yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles went into the team's bye week with his star slightly fading. After his crazy Week 9, seven-touchdown performance, Foles put together a solid game against Green Bay (three touchdowns and 228 yards) and then failed to throw a touchdown pass (while running for one) in a 298-yard performance in Week 11.

It's not that Foles has struggled -- he has yet to throw an interception this season while being an underrated source of rushing yards (20 or more in three of his last four games). But it doesn't hurt to look at the diminishing returns, especially with a matchup against Arizona this Sunday. The Cardinals have allowed opposing quarterbacks to reach the 20-point mark just once in the last four games, allowing a total of six touchdowns in that span. However, the quarterbacks they limited were Matt Ryan (without Julio Jones or Roddy White), Chad Henne (with a limited Cecil Shorts), and Andrew Luck (without Reggie Wayne). The Eagles are at full force and will be rested coming off a bye.

Foles is a solid start for Week 13, but if there are slam-dunk options available (the Drew Brees/Tony Romo types), this matchup isn't favorable enough to push him into "stud" territory.

Michael Vick relegated to backup role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has recovered from a hamstring injury that has kept him out the last three games, but coach Chip Kelly announced Tuesday he's been relegated to a backup role. Kelly named Nick Foles the starting quarterback for the rest of the season Tuesday.

Eagles coach tabs Nick Foles as starter for rest of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) To little surprise, Eagles coach Chip Kelly named Nick Foles the starting quarterback for the rest of the season Tuesday. Kelly said he doesn't want Foles looking over his shoulder now that Michael Vick has recovered from a hamstring injury.

Michael Vick expects to be completely healthy after bye


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, said he didn't run through all drills during practice Tuesday, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. However, he expects to be completely healthy after the Eagles return from their bye in Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly hasn't yet named a starting quarterback for Week 13, but Nick Foles has led Philadelphia on a three-game winning streak in Vick's absence.


Eagles coach waiting until QBs are 'fully healthy' to name starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Monday quarterback Michael Vick, who missed a third straight game Sunday with a hamstring injury, could have played Week 11, if needed. Kelly added he expects Vick to be ready following the team's Week 12 bye.

However, Kelly wouldn't indicate if Nick Foles, who has led Philadelphia to three straight wins, or Vick would start Week 13 vs. Arizona.

"When both quarterbacks are fully healthy, I'll sit down with both of them to discuss who starts," Kelly said.


Nick Foles doesn't get usual touchdowns


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who had thrown for multiple scores in three of his first four starts, went without a touchdown pass Week 11 against the Redskins, but it wasn't for a lack of trying. He had two passes -- a 42-yarder in the second quarter and a 3-yarder in the third -- that looked like they may have crossed the goal line but were ruled down at the 1. The first was initially called a touchdown before being overturned on replay. The second may have actually been a touchdown, but the Eagles didn't bother to challenge. Running back LeSean McCoy followed both plays with a 1-yard touchdown run.

In all, Foles completed 17 of 26 passes for 298 yards, with 217 of those yards coming in the first half. If the Eagles didn't have a 24-0 lead after their first drive of the second half, he likely would have had an even more productive day throwing the ball.

Foles did at least score a touchdown on a 4-yard run in the first quarter and had a surprisingly productive day running the ball, picking up a career-high 47 yards on nine carries. He relied heavily on the read option with the Eagles looking to run out the clock in the second half.

At times, he was seen stretching out his shoulder between plays, but considering he never left the game and has a bye to recover, it likely won't affect his status for Week 13 against the Cardinals.
