I know I'd much rather have Foles over a Matt Flynn or Alex Smith. We know what those guys are.
We don't really know that much about Foles being he just completed his rookie year.
In 7 games he posted...
60.8%, 1,699 yards (242.7 YPG), 6 TDs, 5 Ints, 79.1 QbR
So take that out over a 16 game season.
60.8%, 3,883 yards, 13 TDs, 11 Ints, 79.1 Qbr
I don't think that's too shabby for a rookie and considering what a train wreck that team was.
This. His stats aren't bad considering he was playing most of that time behind a terrible o-line, with his #1 RB out and a revolving door at WR AND he went through the off-season as the #3 QB so didn't have a lot of practice snaps.
