Nick Foles looked like a bombard of a Super Bowl MVP on Thursday night’s 5-0 loss to Cleveland. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback struggled to bond with backup receivers, looked worried in a slot and finished several boneheaded decisions that led to turnovers.
“There’s time when we feel good and times when I’m creation mistakes,” Foles pronounced after a game, around a team’s transcript. “It’s as elementary as that. we usually have to keep being vicious of myself, keep examination a film and bargain what’s going on. we have to keep playing, keep going by it. Obviously, we haven’t been myself and we design a lot of myself, though we have to keep learning. I’ve played this diversion a prolonged time, we know how to residence this and keep relocating brazen while gripping that certain outlook.”
Foles finished 13-of-17 flitting for 127 yards, though also tossed dual interceptions, took 3 sacks and tripped in a finish section for a safety. Heavily underneath encircle many of his 32 snaps, and though his tip 3 receivers and tip dual using backs, not all of a descent woes can be put on Foles.
“First of all, I’m unhappy in a offense,” manager Doug Pederson pronounced after a game. “I don’t wish to singular out one player, so don’t put this all on Nick (Foles). I’m unhappy in a offense. It’s apparently not what we wish in a third preseason week. Listen, it’s one of those things where we’re still gripping things really vanilla and we still wish to weigh and make certain we have a right guys in a right spots. Now, we’ve apparently got one some-more preseason game, and afterwards we spin a courtesy to Atlanta in week one.”
While some of Foles’ struggles can be blamed on a line, blank teammates, or vanilla scheme, a veteran’s decisions were suggestive of his 2015 struggles with a Rams. On his initial INT, Foles didn’t reason a reserve and his pass fluttered like a drunk, bleeding duck. On a second pick, he had no business perplexing to fit a round in a little window to Zach Ertz, who was surrounded by 3 defenders.
Those controversial decisions could change a Eagles’ mindset in how they hoop Carson Wentz’s standing relocating forward.
“I don’t consider we can usually snap your fingers. That’s where we’ll get behind to work,” pronounced of removing a sorcery behind if he needs to start Week 1. “We have a lot of work to do. It’s not going to be easy, though that’s because we are here. That’s because we’re a partial of this group and in a NFL — we know that we have to be vicious of ourselves and get behind to work. Get behind to a basis and play a kind of ball. That’s relocating a round around, using a ball, throwing deep, throwing short, screens — executions. We weren’t purify on executions tonight and haven’t been as purify on executions via a preseason. All a guys in a locker room, we are going to get behind to work like we always do and continue this bond we have.”
This is a partial of a story where we indicate out that it’s usually a preseason and overacting to this opening would be foolish. It’s a entertain in a bowl, not a hurl of Benjamins.
“He finished a deteriorate flattering good final year,” Pederson pronounced of Foles. “We know who he is and what we need to do to get him prepared to go, and again, we’re still flattering vanilla offensively. We haven’t finished any of a RPO game. Those are all things that are partial of his strengths, too, so we’ve got to make certain that when we put diversion skeleton together relocating forward, that we’re utilizing his strengths too.”
After his newfound peace, Foles doesn’t sound like a male who will let bad preseason performances impact his mood.
“When we play this game, you’re going to be analyzed,” he said. “Everyone is going to investigate your each move. Everyone is going to investigate and demeanour for perfect. We’re not ideal people, I’m not a ideal player. I’ve not had a ideal diversion and we never will. That’s usually how it’s incited out. That’s where we can gaunt on those practice and continue to improve, not be too tough on myself, while being tough on myself. If you’re too tough on yourself all a time, you’re going to crumble. I’m vehement to get behind to work with a guys in this locker room. I’m confident about it. There was a lot of training tonight. we was learning, we built a database of information that we can lift from, and it usually happened in a half.”
