Kelly: Foles Can Be A Full-Time Starter

0V3J9290

The quarterback watch continues here at the NovaCare Complex.

The Eagles held Thursday’s practice indoors due to the weather. Michael Vick was on the field once again with his teammates during the portion that was open to the media. Still nursing a hamstring, he was limited the past two days, though his workload increased on Wednesday.




"He's going through drops, he's throwing balls to receivers," said Chip Kelly. "We got him involved a little bit in seven-on-seven yesterday, and we'll see depending on how the beginning of our training goes whether we can give him more today or not give him more today. All that really comes back to the feedback that Mike gives us."

Despite any progress Vick may be making, Nick Foles is most likely to get the start. The second-year signal-caller has manned the first unit during team drills so far this week. Foles was solid while pinch-hitting for Vick against the Giants, throwing for 197 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Kelly was asked if he has seen enough to believe that Foles can be a full-time starter in this league.

"Yeah, I have," Kelly replied. "I think Nick has the ability to be a starter in this league. We're excited about him. If the opportunity presents itself on Sunday I'm excited to see Nick out there."

-- Earlier this week, Matt Barkley admitted that his throwing shoulder was hurting him more than he let on this spring. Kelly said the team was aware when they drafted him that the rookie wasn't all the way back from the separated shoulder he suffered against UCLA last November, and that he has made noticeable strides while working with the Eagles' strength and conditioning coaches. The ball is "jumping off his hand" more now than it had previously, according to Kelly.

-- Patrick Chung (shoulder) was a full go at practice Wednesday. While Kelly said that today is big for the safety to see how his body responds, the head coach suggested Chung is on target to play against the Bucs. Bill Davis hinted that Chung will be part of a rotation to start.

    Tim, Kelly has just opened the floodgates of hell. haha

    • G_WallyHunter

      Tim and Sheil just opened these floodgates, they provide the platform, don’t be surprised if Birds 24/7 crashes in the next couple hours… by the way, Foles is way better

      • nicksaenz1

        You may get crucified for that last part. You know you aren’t allowed to praise he who is not named Vick.

        • G_WallyHunter

          lmao why I put the brackets at the end, don’t need any certain commenters over-reacting when they get here to rant…

          • nicksaenz1

            Wasn’t there when I posted. You should take the part in parantheses out and see what happens

          • G_WallyHunter

            ditto lol, I’m leaving bait out for Dutch or Token

        • #7

          Neither are we. I guess that makes it even. Neither of us can support our own QBs of our football team

          What a shame

        • Bird of Prey

          Ditto. It’s nice to see timing and a three step drop. But I’ll have to hear about Foles not able to rip off a 60 yard run……

      • obj_speaking

        What exactly was the team doing before the D stepped up, moving down the field efficiently? No, weren’t. Third Q here’s how our drive chart went: PUNT, PUNT, FG while at the same time we saw our 12 point lead get turned to a 2 point lead by the Giants then a 2pt ld. But based on that Foles is the better QB? Foles is a good qb lucky to have him, but take away the short & intermediate routes and it’s a wrap for Foles.

        • Vick Must Go

          Take away Vick’s legs and he would be sitting at home on Sunday. And OBJ, how did the 1st quarter drives end? You can’t mention Foles 3rd Qtr without mentioning Vick’s 1st Qtr.

          • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

            Actually most folk mention Vick’s first quarter. No one, however, seems to remember Foles third.

        • #7

          There it is

        • AZ_Eaglesfan

          Wait, what happened after that? O thats right, Foles threw a perfect ball to a COVERED Brent Celek of a Play Action pass. A perfect throw. Then he threw a perfect back shoulder throw to a 5’10 receiver(DJax’s First RZ TD in 3 years) in the end zone.

          Honestly, some of you Vick lovers are so blindly in love with him you can’t even appreciate good QB play. Foles played well last game. Vick played well in the first two games. The past three, not so much. If Foles comes in and wins the starting QB job from Vick it will only be because he is a better QB. If he doesn’t you should still hope he plays well so that he has better trade value next offseason, and then Vick will be back.

          Root for the team, not the players.

  • nicksaenz1

    Oh snap!

  • GEagle

    Shocker… the Tampa Slayer will strike again on Sunday

    • G_WallyHunter

      Tampa Slayer, I LIKE IT!

      • GEagle

        Lol the Vinny curry cult needs a cool nickname

        • G_WallyHunter

          The Curry hurry

          • GEagle

            Ooohhh that might be the one!!!!
            ..
            can’t wait to watch FOles run the ball in against Tampa again tonight and then throw the walk off TD to Maclin

          • BlindChow

          • GEagle

            I have the game on DVD lol

          • #7

            Nice!!

          • GEagle

            “Benny and the Jet(curry)”

  • BirdGang

    I hate when reporters ask questions like, do you think he can be a full time starter. What is the coach supposed to say…Um no i dont think he can be. But I tell you what…he will make one heck of a backup.

    • GEagle

      I’m embarrassed for some of the questions our reporters ask chip

      • G_WallyHunter

        You can see Chip’s embarrassment lol… the look he gives them is hilarious… like “did you actually just ask that? OK, I guess I’ll answer it politely”

        And it’s hilarious how many times you hear Chip say “Look, I’ve said this all along”… he has to repeat himself so much lol..

        Those reporters who ask questions have the memory span of a hamster I guess..

        • cliff henny

          wish the news conferences were like the presidential, where reporter gave credentials, or chip identified each reporter in his answer. maybe that would help

          • GEagle

            That would be awesome

          • G_WallyHunter

            LOL ya, put their name out there for ppl to joke about… stupid questions

          • cliff henny

            ANNNNNNNNNNNNNND….another stupid question from a philly.com writer.

          • G_WallyHunter

            So Chip, How important is it to get this win Sunday?

            So Chip, what’s wrong with Chungs shoulder? x5… after he’s explained 10 times that he doesn’t deal with injury specifics…

            it’s unbelievable lol

          • cliff henny

            my favorite over the summer was, either domo or mosher, trying to write an article about the play cards. kelly just shot every question down. whichever writer it was tried for at least 3 or 4 weeks, and kelly gave him nothing

          • G_WallyHunter

            so funny when he shuts them down with that smirk that says “are u stupid?”…. gonna be a fun year of pressers that’s for sure

    • #7

      LOL. What the hell else would he say lol

    • GEagle

      I LOLed at less Bowan..
      ..
      les: “Chip is defense dead in the NFL”???

      Chip: “that question is dead, time for practice, see ya Les”

      • #7

        Can’t stand Les Bowen or Domowitch

        • GEagle

          It be faster for me to tell you who I can stand! My can’t stand list is too long.

          • #7

            I hear you on that! i have to admit though, I think Zach Berman does a good job

          • GEagle

            He isn’t bad….Caplan and Mayock are the guys who’s analysis I like listening to, but they are analyst, not reporters who are asking questions, Berman is probably one of the better ones now that I think about it…
            ….
            I enjoy Dawkins weekly analysis..I think he is the best former player in terms of giving you a fair, no agenda oppinion,…..much better then westbrook

    • aub32

      Some of the questions asked are just to get quotes so that fans will blow up message boards.

  • G_WallyHunter

    Smithers.. release the hounds!

    • GEagle

      Am I the only one who whistles at the TV when the eagles defense is lining up on 3rd and long? I started doing it when we had Jim Johnson…because you knew he was whistling, calling the dogs to attack

  • cliff henny

    keep talking foles up, chipper…maybe Arizona will take the bait again

    • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

      lol. Yep.

    • nicksaenz1

      They will once we give him an extension as proof we’re true believers.

      • GEagle

        Cut Vick,,,give his 7mil to Jarius Byrd

        Build a super team while you pay your two QBs less then a million combined

        It’s imperative that we sign Byrd and Orakpo allowing us to start getting some Chip guys on offense

        • cliff henny

          vick, peters, ryan and celek, dont resign any, that’s 28m to the 18m we’re carrying over, plus, 4m under on’14…that’s 50m to work with right there, no dead money (i’d get peter’s to 3ys 18m..he’s not worth 10m). not even getting into fletchers, caseys, avant’s etc type contracts-there’s easily another 15m-20m. should be serious buyers next yr. need safety like byrd, #1 cb and #1 olb

          • GEagle

            Don’t think we need any CBs, if we add a superstar safety….if you add an average safety, then you need CBs..

            Orakpo is a must sign because if we add Batman, Barwin will prove to be a great Robin
            ..
            Ryan and Celek contract expires? I know Nate and peters does???I thought we would have to cut Celek. We have to cut Cole and eat the money

            JP is coming off a injury…me thinks he isn’t even all the way back yet…by November I expect him to be dominant again

          • cliff henny

            fletcher is 3m no dead…i’d take his money and buy top guy, though i prefer him over williams, who due 6m but has 3m dead. sure he’ll get another yr. ’15 he’s 8m, 1m dead, bye bye!

          • GEagle

            What top guys? Talib?

          • nicksaenz1

            Talib is ballin’ right now. Would take him in a heartbeat.

          • GEagle

            I woulda took him last year….but there aren’t many other stud CBs hitting FA

            OLB is slim pickings which makes signing Orakpo imperative especially since the skins prob can’t afford hi

          • cliff henny

            isnt he hurt all the time? actually, doubt eagles will do much on olb next yr. graham and cole both carry sizeable dead money, barwin was basically a 2 yr contract. best guess is ’15 is when olb is address. hopefully that last turnover piece. ’14 can work on secondary, MLB (ryans)-saw i put olb above-meant ilb, thornton is rfa-looks like a guy worthy of extension.

          • GEagle

            Thort def needs to extended…I think Barwin is our future. dude is being asked to do a lot more than the Texans asked off him and he is adjusting well for things being so new..

            Only young FA CB who Is view as a really significant upgrade would be the kid Verner from the Titans….man BJ raji could really help us
            ….
            If we miss out on Byrd we are screwed. where would we turn? Tj ward? Clemons?
            Adding a star Safety would make our entire secondary so much better…Cary and Fletch have to give up everything underneath because when Nates over the top he lets everyone get behind him

            may want to run from city hall to the linc…. where most of the cops are isn’t where I’d wanna run toward. just my thoughts. not a streaker, so maybe i’m not looking at the situation properly

            EDIT: wasn’t meant for you RC. thought I replied to Geagle.

          • Richard Colton

            Thanks. I already may be on the hook for a caseybleepingmatthews jersey. I’m not streaking too.

          • GEagle

            Don’t feel bad…my girl bought me an authentic Celek jersey last week….so I am forced to wear it..I don have the heart to tell her I hate him….I woulda been so happy with a Curry, Cox or Barwin…but Celek? And the authentic one at that? Maddening

          • nicksaenz1

            What’s the deal that would result in you troubling yourself to find that? …. I think if you have to get the Casey jersey we need to arrange a bet that could result in you streaking down broad in the Casey Matthews jersey haha. I should clarify, by streak, I mean sprint down broad screaming your love of Casey, because, no offense, we don’t want to see it.

          • cliff henny

            no, but barwin was basically a 2 yr contract. ’14 cap is 5m, dead 6.7m..’15 cap 6m but dead is 1.8m, similar in ’16. i can live with barwin as #2 olb if we get a beast.
            .
            well, you know i think we’re leveraging ’14 draft for qb. maybe foles can be turned for picks that can be used to move up. that’s work too. be great if eagles can get young top end talent in ’14-particular safety or olb, but till the wheeling and dealings done, i’m assuming ’14 draft is a qb draft and some other guys

          • GEagle

            Could be….but I think the kid would have been traded already and Dixon would be backing up Vick

          • cliff henny

            hey, poker face kelly….never know. foles kills it vs tampa, that 2nd and 5th just became 2nd and 3rd. kelly has a way of making qbs look better, has with vick, went 4-4 at oregon.
            .
            Barr in 1st Hundley in 2nd…all UCLA draft

          • GEagle

            Oooooh!!!! I would go Bonkers! I would take Hundley after Teddy lol

            Hopefully Colt Lyeria falls to like the 5th round lol
            ..
            Barr
            Hundley
            Adrian Robinson or Oddell Beckham
            Lyeria

          • cliff henny

            sign Byrd Orakpo Talib Raji!!!!!! FU NFCEAST…eagles are back ontop!!!!!

          • Richard Colton

            just had a bad 2011 flashback.

          • GEagle

            NEVER AGAIN!!! gamble don’t play that ish! Lol I hope (fingers crossed)

            Byrd wants to win, if we bring him in it means Chip will know he is motivated

            Screw Orakpo if we can get Barr or even the kid that Murdered ohio St.

            If they were to add Raji,Byrd,Talib,Barr on defense… I will streak down broad st naked from the Linc to city hall!!!

            Lyeria and the WR from Penn state would be awesome on offense…
            ….
            I never thought I would say this, but if we used our 1st round pick on Austin Jenkins, I wouldn’t be mad…never thought I’d be ok with picking a TE with the first twelve picks……that kid is THE TRUTH!! Who does he play against this week?

          • cliff henny

            was 1 bad signing, no-D. and really, who saw that coming? they have to spend it, cant play with scared money. hopefully they learned a lesson in scouting other team’s talent, like with fletcher.

          • GEagle

            Realistically what positions can we really draft in rd 1 besides QB?
            this is a bad CB draft since Roby been getting torched…
            1) Sammy Watkins or Marquis Lee?
            2) Barr?
            3) Louis Nix
            4) haha Clinton Dix
            5) Austin Seferian Jenkins
            ….
            Unless they cut Peters and grab one of the many OTs

            QBS and OT will dominate the top 10 picks…it’s going to push some studs at positions we really need back to the 11-15 range

          • Richard Colton

            exactly. Based on where we are right now there is not a single starting position on Offense or Defense other than RB where a 1st round pick would surprise me. Not. One.

          • cliff henny

            asking wrong guy…i havent moved one inch from thinking we’re somehow trading up and getting kelly his perfect qb. Hundley could be the monkey wrench, he might be odd guy out they can steal. with 1st rd pick, think you can forget about half the side, it’ll be offense. realistically, this team is 1 stud wide out away. see what they do about Maclin. should be interesting, so many ways to go. howie’s annoying, but thank god he can manage a cap.

          • GEagle

            How good would Barr look opposite of Barwin?
            ..
            If you want to two gap, OLB is crucial. Premier position…

            The dream in 2016-17 lol:
            Barwin. Mykal, Kiko Alonso, Dion! Dion! dion!! Lol sorry…had to do it!!!

          • anon

            skins will have a lot more cap room after this year

          • GEagle

            What’s the saints cap situation look like? Hoping they piss Jimmy Graham off by trying to franchise him at TE money instead of WR dollaz.

            Could you imagine what a coup it would be if Howie “splash” Roseman put Jimmy Graham in a Chip offense? I think that would probably the number one wishful thinking dream scenario possible for this offseason

          • #7

            The he will have another shootout

          • anon

            Yeah we need to start beating people down so we can force hem into passing plays — that’s when the takeaways will start coming. But if we’re always playing from behind it’ll be hard for us to get takeaways and stops.

            I’d really like to have that KC game back.

          • cliff henny

            probably. doubt he’ll even get a look with his track record. all i know is there better be major housecleaning in feb.

          • GEagle

            We had so many wholes last year that we had to go for quantity and lay a foundation,,,I think the quality is coming this offseason..We have to be aggressive in FA and add quality on defense so Chip can use the draft to get some offensive…only offensive FA I would want are:
            1) Jimmy jam Graham
            2) Decker
            3) Jacoby Jones
            ….
            Some good defenders available tho:

            Dline:
            1) Lamar Houston 27yr old
            2) BJ Raji 28
            3) Paul Soliai
            ..
            OLB
            1) Orakpo 28
            2) can hardy of the panthers or Michael Johnson of the bengals play OLB?
            ..
            S
            1) Byrd 27
            2) TJ Ward 27
            ..
            Better CB market then I thought
            1) Alterraun vernier is a good young CB for the Titans 25yr old
            2) Talib 28
            3) Brandon Browner 30
            4) Sam Sheilds 26
            5) peanut 33
            6) Tim Jennings 30

          • cliff henny

            Raji would look nice clogging middle, Logan with another yr gets his man strength. guy is really young. thornton is rfa, i’d be ok w/ extending him. i dont think they can spend any bad money on secondary guys. if you’re good, we got a place for ya’

          • GEagle

            The only way I would be ok with losing Thorton, is I f it’s cause we want to add lamarr Houston…Lamarr, Raji, Cox…with “Benny and the jet(curry)” coming off the bench would be dirty dirty….I wish they would stop giving Cole so many snaps. he is playing the run well, but I want to see a 50-50 Time share with Graham, so we can really know how bad we need an OLB..
            …..
            If the Eagles only added Byrd, I would be ok with the secondary….but if they miss out on Byrd, then we need ATleast 1 CB upgrade while still adding a safety

            Didn’t realize Raji was still young

          • anon

            We need a safety. We have to man 2 man corners who are a little slow, cant underestimate the safety help we need over top. I think watching Djax beat the corners in practice makes B Davis want them to play back. Since we don’t have a super-reliable safety if the CB is beat it could mean easy TD.

          • #7

            A good thing though, Nate Allen isn’t getting ripped on here. That’s a good thing

          • cliff henny

            whoever whichever way they go…i can at least see the fields thru the forrest thanks to all the money being available. want lots of w’s this yr, but ’14 is when i’ll really expect things to turn the corner.

          • Richard Colton

            Fletcher has shown through 5 games that he can be a quality #2 CB. I think we have something there. What we need is a shut down corner and a hard hitting safety. I can live with Fletch & Wolff and Boykin in the slot – you can build with that.

            he does have those 2 knees. i agree with everything but the build…2 bad knees isnt a guy i can build around. he can play, but he’s a yr to yr guy.

          • Richard Colton

            but he’s only 27. I’d feel better about the next offseason not thinking we have to replace the entire starting secondary. 2/5 is manageable. 4/5 isn’t realistic.

          • cliff henny

            yr to yr..he’s worth 3m. those knees will always hamper his contract. as a 2nd/3rd corner on 1 yr deal, fantastic. building is 4 yr deal. splitting hairs. we both like the guy. i would understand if eagles transfered his money to a talib. wouldnt lose sleep. really no reason could do both. but we know eagles are a slave to cap

          • GEagle

            I’m telling you, the kid from the Titans smokes Talib in terms of ability…but both Verner and Talib would come with a big signing bonus…we already have to give a safety a huge signing bonus if we want the Byrd in our nest…I would not complain about a Talib/Cary tandem….but I would keep Brad and just bench him, even if we were to add a CB…we can afford to do ish like that until we have to extend a rookie QBs contract

            why? kelly can just make another qb in 4yrs, lol. really, how great would that be? that’s my dream for kelly..everyone else has to spend 20m on qb, Eagles spend 700k. serious gamechanger

          • Richard Colton

            yeah. not sure how I feel about Talib though, bad seed. Then again, his off the field stuff may just have been a product of his environment…the New England Patriots.

    • GEagle

      Meryl thinks FOles can be our future…and he said everyone who says Chip doesn’t have the QB who he will eventually win with, is basically wrong…lol don’t shoot the messenger, Meryl just said it

      • cliff henny

        meryl just one step above spuds.

        • #7

          Ouch

        • GEagle

          I wouldn’t say that…for a team mouth piece I find Meryl to be fair and way more credible then spuds or baldi

          • cliff henny

            i dont tune into either for hard hitting facts…i know i’m gone to spoonfed a bowl of homerism. that’s what they get paid to do.

          • GEagle

            I like Meryl for his historical context…him and Diddy are our best historians…

  • #7

    Not sure what else he would say..

    What a dumb ass question.

  • Adam

    A tweet from Roob at CSN

    List of QB’s that have thrown for 275+ yards, 60% completion percentage, 2+ TD’s and 0 INT’s against the Bucs:

    Nick Foles.

    • GEagle

      And to the confused fan who thinks tamp as LBs are too fast for FOles…. FOles ran in his first TD against the LBs that Tampa will field on Sunday….remember that long TD run, that everyone clowns FOles for because they say it took him forever to get in the ENDZONE? Yeah well that came against Tampa and these same LBs

      • #7

        Let’s run the QB sweep with Foles then. Sounds like a winner

        • GEagle

          That’s not what you said…you said he couldn’t get 5yards running read option on these fast Tampa LBs

          • #7

            He can, in 5 minutes.

            Joking!! Lighten up lol.

            Foles gets to prove it on the field. That’s all he can ask for, right?

          • GEagle

            Dude…I’m not getting hostile wit you, just SAYIN…geez

            Nothing speeds us up getting back to being a top team like already having the QB of the future on our roster…and since that’s all I care about! I will root my ass off for FOles…..but during game time, I root every eagle on like a wild madman??heck! I even root for “not so nasty” Nate and I never hated an eagle more than Him lol…

            I have been fair with Vick all season…I stuck up for him during losses that weren’t his fault…but FOles being good is in this franchises best interest
            So, Fly FOles Fly!!!!!

          • #7

            Wasn’t directed at you. I’m like a piece of meat on the ground with a bunch of buzzards flying around on these threads.

            I don’t agree with you on the Foles thing, but that’s why they play the games.

            We shall see

          • Richard Colton

            Could it be ’cause you’re a Vick fanboy from Atlanta? ex-Cowboys’ fan? Braves fan? and the biggest fraud on here?

            And “Foles being good” is in the best interest for this team to win this game.

            Fly EAGLES Fly!!!!!

    • nicksaenz1

      I’d be more excited by that stat if Revis and Goldson were on that squad last year.

      • Adam

        I agree. They’re still only a middle of the pack defense (which is clearly better than us) but their offense is terrible.

        • #7

          Any team can win a game in the NFL. Hell, the Jags aren’t going to go 0-16

      • anon

        Yeah i think they had the worst ranked pass defense last year.

  • BrickSquadMonopoly

    How cool would it be to see Nick start and then after halftime when the Bucs make their adjustments bring Mike out. It would really throw them off sounds like kind of a good gameplan even though its a 1 time thing.

    • cliff henny

      i agree..hope the score is 35-3 eagles and MV comes in for mop up duty.

      • BrickSquadMonopoly

        LOL fat chance.

    • G_WallyHunter

      Do it when both healthy, that’d be fun to watch

      Vicks my starting QB, so I’d rather they didn’t lol

  • TRAPPER

    I WONT FALL FOR THIS SHYT…. OF COURSE KELLY IS GOING TO SAY.. UM YEA NICK CAN BE A STARTER IN THIS LEAGUE. YES I’M EXCITED. DUH FREAK ELSE WAS HE SUPPOSE TO SAY….
    I WILL LET YA’LL ARGUE IT OUT

    • G_WallyHunter

      Personally, I think since Kelly said that, then he is saying Foles is the better quarterback

      • TRAPPER

        Too me HE JUST OPENED THE FLOOD GATES… I DONT KNOW IF HE SAYING FOLES IS BETTER OR IF HE’S TRYING TO KEEP MIKE ON THE HOT SEAT LIKE IN TRAINING CAMP… whatever it is I’m tired of the damn QB debates at least lets get through the season first.

        • G_WallyHunter

          hey if it’s motivation let’s see how it works. CK seems to be all about that motivation/competition aspect at all positions, seems like that’s what he’s doing

          • #7

            Doesn’t bother me at all

          • G_WallyHunter

            Nope I like it, keep Vick on his toes just by saying a few words, and at the same time it motivates Nick to work his ass off… it’s all around beneficial for the team anyways

  • aub32

    So proud of fans here not taking the bait. This post has been up 2 hours and no Vick/Foles debate outside of a few jokes here and there.

    • #7

      The question is too stupid to even debate about it

  • Broadcasting Wisdom

    I think Vick and Foles could both be effective in the same game. Anybody see that Northwestern game against Ohio State Saturday night? I know it is college, but Northwestern used a 2-QB system that was keeping a physically superior Ohio State team off balance all night and enabled them to grab the lead midway through the 4th quarter.

  • BleedGreenJames

    Was it true that teams were calling with decent picks for Foles in the offseason? I say take whatever you can get with those, and make it a priority to get Mariota in round 1.

  • #7

    Eli “INT” Manning. The new turnover machine. Eli is still a great QB though. The TEAM around him, and his mistakes, have led them to 0-6.

    Same thing with the Eagles the last couple of years. It’s not like AR and Howie built a great roster here…we talk about the failed drafts all the time….and a lot of folks on here talking about next year at week 6.

    QBs get killed in the media but no one talks about whats around them. I just want us to make the playoffs and see what happens.
