The Philadelphia Eagles believe starting quarterback Nick Foles will have another solid season in 2014, building on his breakout campaign last year.

The Philadelphia Eagles believe quarterback Nick Foles is poised to become the NFC's best in 2014.

This is what The Philadelphia Daily News' John Smallwood touched on in his July 22 article

"There are questions about quarterback Nick Foles as the Eagles open training camp this weekend for the 2014 season. 

"Last year at this time, he was second on the depth chart to Michael Vick and remained there, despite having a solid preseason. 

"Then Vick got hurt, and Foles parlayed the opportunity into a campaign that surprisingly ended with the Eagles winning the NFC East and his being named the Most Valuable Player of the Pro Bowl.

"Foles had a ridiculously amazing touchdown-to-interception ratio, tossing 27 scores and only two interceptions, and had the jersey he wore against the Oakland Raiders sent to the Hall of Fame after he tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes and had a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

"However, even though Foles has given fans a lot of hope that he might indeed be the quarterback who can lead the next era of Eagles football, there will be plenty of questions surrounding the third-year player from the University of Arizona. 

"How will Foles, 25, respond now that defensive coordinators have a solid book on him and will game-plan to take away his strengths and exploit his weaknesses?

"Certainly, there are numerous areas of concern about Foles, and yet, there is good argument that the Eagles will enter training camp with the most solid quarterback in the NFC East. 

"That might strange, considering New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has won two Super Bowls, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is a three-time Pro Bowler, and Washington (Redskins) quarterback Robert Griffin III was the talk of the NFL only two seasons ago. 

"But each of those quarterbacks finished the 2013 season with serious issues that need to be addressed if their teams are going to make serious noise in 2014.

"Foles is the only NFC East quarterback who comes into the season having made serious strides forward in 2013. The other three are coming off seasons in which they took huge steps backward." 

Foles explained to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank on July 22 how he got to choose football over basketball: 

"Basketball I love just as much as football. It's just that I decided to go this route and I've put more time into football since high school, so football's gone better. I can still play basketball. I just never really got better. I just go out there and wing it.

"I had great coaches all in high school, but my high school head coach for basketball ended up leaving after my sophomore year. So it was just one of those things where the JV coach was my coach and I really liked him. But the coach that I had really bonded with as a freshman had left, so I was like, 'All right.'

"It sort of messed with me a little bit. And then I don't know, I think my junior year I had a good year of varsity football, and I was like,'All right, I think I can do thing thing.' And senior year I had a really good year, went to the state championship. 

"I think I committed to Arizona State after my junior year, so at that point I came to the realization that I looked at LeBron James and was like,'I don't think I can do that. But I think I can throw a football.' 

 

"So I had to keep it real with myself. I knew I could play college basketball and hopefully be a good player. But if I wanted to go on to the next level, it would have had to have been a miracle." 

The 25-year-old  Foles has thrown for 4,590 yards, 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions on a 101.0 passer rating in 20 career regular-season games, per ESPN stats
