LeSean McCoy: “This is the year Nick Foles blows up”

LeSean McCoy is on board with us in saying that Nick Foles will be one of the NFL’s most captivating watches of the 2014 season.

“Nick, he wants to play, he wants to get better. He’s playing lights out even in camp, but he still wants to be at a higher level,” McCoy said Wednesday night, via CSN Philly. “He’s at that peak where people know him like, ‘Man, this Foles, is he that good?’ Because you see the stats, you see the numbers. I think this is the year he blows ’em out like, ‘Yeah, I’m Nick Foles. I’m Philadelphia’s quarterback. I’m the guy.’ And this is the year he blows it away.”

NFL Talent evaluators seem divided on what Foles will do in his sophomore campaign, and what kind of player he actually is despite his record-setting season in 2013.

“Foles could be like a Kerry Collins or Jake Delhomme, a three (tier) who plays like a two or four,” one talent evaluator told Sando.

He’s an easy guy to root for. He’s a lot of fun to watch. We love the way he throws the ball. We can’t wait until 2014 gets underway for Foles and the Eagles.
