Quick fantasy outlook: New head coach Chip Kelly knows Nick Foles well, having coached against him in the Pac-12. After Foles torched the Oregon Ducks defense for 398 yards two season ago, Kelly said, ''I catch myself watching him in awe sometimes...Nick is a heck of a football player. That kid's a warrior. He's as good as anyone in the country.'' So it's no surprise that Foles has been given equal snaps with Michael Vick running the 1st team offense, and also why Foles - who is not considered mobile - is perhaps a better fit in Chip Kelly's offense than some believe. One of the misconceptions of Kelly's system is that it requires a mobile, running quarterback. That's not the case. Kelly is a diverse and creative offensive mind, he crafts a system around the personnel, not the other way around. Foles saw more playing time as a rookie than Eagles fans hoped, thanks to a porous offensive line and injuries to Michael Vick. Foles was 1-5 as a starter, completing 61% of his passes but struggling to connect downfield (6.4 yards per attempt). He only threw six touchdowns in six starts and turned the ball over 11 times (five interceptions and six fumbles). But with a new coach brings a new system and a clean slate, and Foles has the arm strength and quick release to eventually earn the starting job. That said, Michael Vick clearly outplayed Foles in the preseason and was named the starter; Foles will need to wait for his next opportunity.
