Doug Pederson says he is sticking with Nick Foles, ‘end of story’

Nick Foles

Philadelphia Eagles fans have to be concerned with the way Nick Foles played in the final two weeks of the regular season, but they are not going to see another quarterback under center in the playoffs barring an injury.

During his press conference on Tuesday, Eagles coach Doug Pederson made some comments that many interpreted to mean he would bench Foles in favor of second-year quarterback Nate Sudfeld if things start to go south.

As it turns out, Pederson must not have done a good job of conveying his thoughts on his team’s QB situation. He later said in a text message to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that he is sticking with Foles “end of story.”

If the Eagles got to the point in a postseason game where they need to start thinking about benching Foles, it would probably already be too late. There’s no question Philly is a weaker team without Carson Wentz, but Sudfeld isn’t the answer. Pederson’s defense needs to make enough plays to take pressure off of Foles. If that doesn’t happen, it’s unlikely that Foles will be winning games by himself.
