Beating Nick Foles

December 6th, 2012

Fresh from Arizona in the Pac-12 last season, rookie quarterback Nick Foles will start for the Eagles against the Bucs on Sunday. Mike Vick is out.

The Super Bowl Buccaneers, who will be honored during the game, used to eat young quarterbacks for lunch and leave them bruised and humiliated and dying to get out of town. Hopefully, the New Schiano Order will have similar success.

Foles was the losing quarterback in Dallas on Sunday night, but he didn’t play like a loser, going 22-for-34 for 251 yards and a touchdown and no interceptions. If you watch this video from the Eagles website, you’ll see — and hear — a big (6-6), poised quarterback who can make all the throws. But accuracy has been an issue with Foles during his time this season, despite the strong outing in Dallas.

Joe has to imagine the Bucs will blitz at least as often as they have all season, and likely much more. In Dallas, Foles had the luxury of flashy rookie Bryce Brown rushing for 169 yards and two touchdowns to help keep him comfortable in the pocket. The Bucs’ diet of blitzes and No. 1 ranked run defense should be enough to force Foles into a rookie-like performance, which hopefully translates into interceptions.

    Bucs should eat this guy up (now, back to talking about other MEN’s Bodies…Mmm…i love all natural protein shakes)

    Frankly, I’m more looking forward to facing Bryce Brown. While he’s a talented runner, his ball security is amazingly bad. The fundamentally sound Bucs defense should force at least 2 fumbles from him.

    Any given Sunday. Our record on Blitz, Blitz and more Blitz? The only thing our defense gets when it does that is our secondary toasted and OL shoe strings.

    I don’t know what the Panther’s were thinking.In the first half they were defending the pass and letting Brown go to town.LOAD THE BOX stop Brown make Foles beat you.I expect the Buc’s will force some turnover’s.Eagle’s love to turn it over.The Eagles defence can’t force a turnover that’s why they are 3-9.But they are a better team than that and are due for a plus 2 turnover game.Hopefully not on Sunday.
