Eagles' Nick Foles: 'I might not ever reach' 2013 stats again

Monday July 21st, 2014

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles said he may never match the statistics he posted during his sterling 2013 season. 

Foles, 25, completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,891 yards over 13 games. His 27-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio was the best in NFL history.

From The Philadelphia Inquirer:

"Our team isn't measured by my 27-2," Foles said. "Can I be a good-enough leader to where I can make these guys better players around me to where it makes the team better and we win? Now, I might not ever reach those [statistics] again ... I hope I do. I want to get better and I want to be a better player. But if you're just looking primarily at statistics, you might not ever."

A third-round pick out of Arizona in 2012, Foles led the Eagles to a 10-6 record and first-place finish in the NFC East before falling to the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the playoffs.
