Does Nick Foles Crack The Top-10 Quarterbacks For 2014?BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News Thursday, January 9th, 2014
Nick Foles threw 27 touchdowns while only being intercepted twice. Prior to this season, only three times over the last 35 years did an Eagles QB throw for 27 or more touchdowns. Jaworski (1980), Cunningham (1990) and McNabb (2004).
Statistically what Foles accomplished with his overall quarterback ranking and touchdown to interception ratio was astonishing. His name is forever connected with Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady for the “statistics” he produced.
Statistics is the study of the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. Statistics; weighed and interpreted differently when it comes to valuing the “total” package of a quarterback.
Statistics is “part” of the whole when breaking down where a quarterback ranks in comparison to his competition. Can the guy make all of the throws, will his team to victory, mount that 4th quarter comeback and execute the 2 minute drill? What doesn’t he do well, and how many things does he do great?
With what we saw from Foles this season flaws, does he warrant consideration as a top 10 quarterback in the NFL?
Eight names immediately come to mind that I would say are better than Foles.
After these eight, names like Kaepernick, Stafford, Ryan, Rivers, and Romo become debatable in addition to Nick Foles.
Would you list Foles as one of the two remaining “Top 10” spots for 2014 quarterbacks?
