Andy Reid named Nick Foles starter for remainder of season
Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach has settled his team's quarterback controversy, naming rookie Nick Foles the starter for the remainder of the season. Reid made the announcement to reporters at Monday's press conference.
Foles has served as quarterback of the Eagles for each of the past four games, beginning in the second quarter of Week 10's loss to the Dallas Cowboys after Michael Vick left the game with a concussion. Foles has started each of the Eagles' three games since then, but hasn't necessarily been impressive.
The Arizona grad has thrown for just two touchdowns to three interceptions, and has a quarterback rating of 73.3. And though none of Foles' appearances have resulted in Eagles wins, Reid has determined the starting job is the young man's to lose.
