Are the Jaguars going to the Super Bowl with Nick Foles?
They call him Saint Nick for a reason.
Nick Foles is a legend in Philadelphia after guiding the Eagles to a Super Bowl win two seasons. A year ago, he replaced Carson Wentz with five games left in the season and went 4-1. He is the steady hand the Jaguars need in order to take that next step.
Jacksonville already has Leonard Fournette and a top-five defense. All that was missing was a quarterback who could make plays.
Foles is that guy.
Winning a Super Bowl is well and good, but people don't seem to realize that was just one incredible game. Take away that game and you have a pretty mediocre quarterback with an elite offense that carried the team to a Super Bowl.
Foles might be more accurate, but he still doesn't have a big arm—an attribute Bortles was routinely criticized for. Last season, Foles threw for 7.2 yards per attempt. Bortles threw for 6.8.
He's not going to be the savior everyone thinks he is.
