Nick Foles won his first, of what Eagles fans hope will be many, Pro Bowl Offensive Player MVP awards on Sunday. Foles entered the game late in the third quarter and finished the game completing 7 of 10 passes for 89 yards, a 130.8 QB Rating and more importantly no interceptions. He also threw one touchdown pass to Browns TE Jordan Cameron.
The 39 touchdown pass came when, "He (Cameron) just ran a corner route," Foles said to Philly.com, "Just a simple corner route: He got away and got separation and used his big body to make a play." He also said of his pro bowl experience, "I was very surprised. It was really cool. It's crazy but a great experience for us all,"
According to Bleeding Green Nation, "Foles joins Chuck Bednarik, the late great Reggie White, and Randall Cunningham as the only other Eagles to have earned Pro Bowl MVP honors."
Donovan McNabb took to his Twitter account to praise Foles, "Congrats to Nick Foles today for a great performance today in the Pro Bowl. Philly was well represented today. Great job fellas."
Foles Eagles teammates also had a decent afternoon. Wide receover DeSean Jackson finished the game with 3 receptions for 40 yards and one touchdown catch and running back LeSean McCoy carried the ball 3 times for 14 yards.
The success of Foles and the other Eagle's players in the Pro Bowl should make Eagle's fans more eager to see what happens in the 2014 football season. Now all the Eagles need to do is build on the success of this years Pro Bowl players and add another play making wide receiver to confuse other defenses and add more defensive help, perhaps a pass rusher,during free agency and the draft. If that happens and the Eagles can get through their grueling schedule next season then there is no telling as to where this team can go, maybe to the Superbowl. Fans can dream, can't they?
