Foles 'showed enough' as a rookie for Eagles

US PRESSWIRE

Nick Foles certainly is far from perfect but has potential going forward for Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Eagles will close another disappointing season on Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the New York Giants, and will be doing it without Nick Foles, who broke his hand last weekend against the Washington Redskins, ending his season.

Foles was up-and-down when he played, as many rookies are, leaving Philadelphia fans wondering whether or not the quarterback of the future is already on the roster On CSNPhilly.com, long-time NFL writer Ray Didinger feels that Foles shows good promise and deserves to be given a long, hard look. Per Didinger's piece:

Overall, though, Foles showed enough promise to give the Eagles some encouragement as they look ahead to 2013. They may have to start over at some positions – the defensive secondary, for example – but it appears they have something to work with at quarterback.

It's always hard to evaluate a player who doesn't have much help around him, especially in a circumstance such as the one currently engulfing Philadelphia. Most of the top offensive weapons are hurt and Andy Reid has one foot out the door, along with the rest of his coaching staff.

Foles wasn't perfect, but with a full offseason and some more time to prepare, the hope remains that he'll become a lynchpin under center.
