PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fluke or franchise quarterback? The question will follow Nick Foles around until he proves himself again.
Foles began last year as a backup to Michael Vick and finished as a Pro Bowl MVP. His emergence was one of the NFL's biggest surprises and a main reason why the Philadelphia Eagles went from 4-12 to 10-6 and won the NFC East title.
Foles threw 27 touchdown passes and only two interceptions, setting an NFL record for best TD/interception ratio.
Now, everyone is wondering what he'll do for an encore.
Donovan McNabb, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback, isn't convinced Foles is the real deal just yet. McNabb, currently an analyst for Fox, expressed that view in a radio interview in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Foles says everyone's entitled to their opinion.
