Kapadia: Nick Foles

Sometimes, it’s OK to go with the most obvious guy.

Foles is clearly working through some things right now. He’s turned it over four times (three interceptions, one fumble) in the last two games. He has morphed into one of the worst deep ball throwers in the NFL (2-for-16 on passes of 20+ yards the last two weeks), and he looks jittery in the pocket. Read more »

Kapadia: Jason Peters

It’s been an eventful year for the 32-year-old left tackle. Aside from the skirmish against Washington, Peters is the only Eagles offensive lineman to start all four games in the same spot, and he’s been solid overall. But last week, he and Matt Tobin had a couple communication issues that resulted in big hits on Nick Foles.

If those same issues resurface this week, the results could be disastrous. That’s because Peters will be matched up against Robert Quinn. The 24-year-old is an under-the-radar superstar. He had 19 sacks a year ago, and multiple Eagles defenders this week called Quinn the best pass-rusher in the league. Read more »

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles

Player I’ll be watching

Kapadia: David Molk

The Eagles have suffered several injuries so far this season, but the loss of Jason Kelce is one that could prove to be devastating. Kelce set the protections, was very good in the run game, solid in pass pro and one of the most athletic offensive lineman in the league on screens.

Those are big shoes to fill for Molk, who was out of the league last year and will be making his first career start. Against Washington, Molk struggled, but he’s now had a chance to practice with the first team all week long. The Eagles don’t need him to Kelce, but they need him to be adequate. Read more »

Kapadia: Nick Foles

I’ll go ahead and take the lay-up.

If you were to hook Chip Kelly up to a lie detector test and ask him when he really learned who Nick Foles is, I believe he’d say the Raiders game in 2013.

Foles was coming off a nightmarish start against the Cowboys where he suffered a concussion. He sat out the following week, but then was thrust back into action. Yes, it was only the Raiders, but he responded with a seven touchdown performance and never looked back the rest of the season. Read more »

Player I’ll be watching:

Kapadia: Jeremy Maclin

The biggest question facing the Eagles’ offense this season is: Can they hit on big plays downfield?

The running game’s going to be good, and the offensive line should be able to hold up. Like everyone else, I’m expecting Zach Ertz to have a breakout season. But the wide receiver position is where there are question marks.

And that brings us to Maclin. Read more »
