Is Nick Foles an elite quarterback?

The Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl, and backup quarterback Nick Foles was a huge part of that. Taking over just three games before the end of the regular season, Foles orchestrated the team's offense to win the Super Bowl MVP. To some, Foles' clutch performance and steely demeanor make him an elite quarterback. However, there's a reason he was a backup to Carson Wentz. Foles just got hot at the right time and we'd be rise not to overrate him. What do you think? 🏈

Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Joe Montana and Nick Foles: These are quarterbacks who have won Super Bowls and Super Bowl MVPs. Pretty "elite" company, wouldn't you say?

Nick Foles may have started the year on the bench, but he showed up when the Eagles needed him most. He threw for three touchdowns, caught one touchdown pass and threw for 373 yards in the Super Bowl. His performance has only gotten better as the postseason has progressed. Big-time players show up in big-time moments, and Foles did that time and time again. He is an elite quarterback any team would love to have on their team.

Let's cool our jets a little bit here. There's a reason Carson Wentz started over Nick Foles. The former Arizona quarterback thrived at the right time, but that doesn't mean he should be mentioned with the other elite throwers in the league. 

Foles is not consistently accurate and needs volume in order to succeed. Foles was the beneficiary of a brilliant coach and a defense that gave him a lot of help. He may be a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, but he's not an elite player.
