Eagles | Expectations too high for Nick Foles?
Wed, 08 Oct 2014 10:07:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles entered last season as the full-time starter and jumped into a situation with head coach Chip Kelly's offense catching other teams off guard because of its ingenuity. Also, the offensive line was mostly veteran and 100 percent healthy. Foles didn't have to do much to be successful. Coming into the season, expectations were that he'd be the franchise quarterback. However, Foles has struggled due to lack of experience and a changing scene around him. "He's playing on a team where we're less than perfect in a lot of ways," offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur acknowledged. Foles has made some terrible throws this year, and he isn't always setting his feet or sliding in the pocket. "I'm progressing. I'm continuing to learn. I might not go out there and have the stats that are perfect, but I'm going to keep on working to be the quarterback I know these (coaches) want me to be," Foles said.

Eagles | Coach removed LeSean McCoy from game
Tue, 07 Oct 2014 09:47:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said running backs coach Duce Staley removed him late in the team's Week 5 win when the team was trying to run out the clock. McCoy was removed in favor of RB Darren Sproles. "They called me out. Duce pulled me out," McCoy said. "For the most part, if I'm tired, I come out. Then Sproles has his different packages, he has his plays to come in, but the majority of the time, it's just how I'm feeling." Sproles popped a 25-yard run the first play after replacing McCoy, who had 81 yards on 24 carries in the game.

Head coach Chip Kelly noted that sometimes defenses play the run differently when McCoy is in the game compared to Sproles. Sproles seems to receive better blocking at times, and he can be savvier at reading what's in front of him in cramped situations.

"I've definitely tried to just take some shots, stretch them out a little bit," Foles said. "I need to be a little more accurate, that's what I'm working on this week, working on that, and staying clean in the pocket so I can deliver the ball to our guys where they can go up and make a play, not where the ball lands in front of them."
