Herman Edwards appeared on Comcast SportsNet’s “Philly Sports Talk” and gave his opinion on various subjects surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles.
Taking a break during the American Century Celebrity Classic golf tournament near Lake Tahoe, Edwards was asked about quarterback Nick Foles.
Foles threw 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions last season for the Eagles.
“Nick Foles is a young, developing quarterback, and hopefully he continues to develop and really become the guy that everyone wants him to become in Philadelphia, and that’s a franchise quarterback,” said Edwards, a former cornerback for the Eagles and a current ESPN NFL analyst, to CSN in this story.
Foles earned a spot in the Pro Bowl after leading the Eagles to a 10-6 record and an NFC East title.
The difficult task ahead is to repeat that feat.
“How this offense develops, how he develops will say a lot about his future,” Edwards told CSN. “I think he has a bright future in Philadelphia.”
Edwards was also quick to credit coach Chip Kelly and how he adapted to the NFL in his rookie season.
“I think he came in there and a lot of people were wondering if it was going to work, if it was not going to work,” Edwards said. “The key was he won the players over.”
