The Evolution of Nick Foles

Nick Foles has been a revelation since the Dallas game and is a big part of why the Eagles are in prime position to win the NFC East. His numbers have been off the charts and even with throwing his first 2 interceptions of the season in the last few weeks, he ranks 3rd in Football Outsiders QB DVOA (Defensive-adjusted Value Over Average).

So is this version of Nick Foles for real? Where did the guy that struggled in that first Cowboys game go? I took a look at one of his recent performance (Week 11 vs. Washington) to find out. During this game, admittedly against a weak defense, I counted 4 strengths and only 1 weakness for the young QB. A summary:

Strengths

  1. Ability to read both sides of the field
  2. Stays away from interceptions
  3. Good mobility in and out of the pocket
  4. Good footwork inside the pocket
Weakness
  1. Better anticipation of defenses, blitz schemes, etc.
