Nick Foles

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Op­ti­mist: Foles loses the quar­ter­back derby to Tru­bisky, but when Tru­bisky fails, Foles does what he does best: He comes off the bench to lead his team to the play­offs. The Bears rally be­hind him, and Foles re­gains his 2013 touch, when he led the NFL in passer rat­ing.

Pes­simist: Foles wins the quar­ter­back derby but is no bet­ter as a No. 1 with the Bears than he was with the Eagles, Rams or Jaguars. Un­able to lift a strug­gling of­fense on his shoul­ders, Foles is mired in medi­ocrity as the sad truth is re­vealed: The for­mer Su­per Bowl MVP is only as good as the of­fense around him.
