Nick Foles is a Game Manager. Nothing more, Nothing Less.
Following a statistically incredible 2013 and with a full offseason as the starter Nick Foles was supposedly primed to break out. Instead, Foles chance to shine has removed some of his luster and we are left with what only the eye test could confirm last season. Nick Foles is a game-managing system quarterback. Nothing more, nothing less.
Depending on how you want to look at it, it could be a good thing or a bad thing.
Old school NFL tradition considers game managers and system quarterbacks to be dirty labels—the kind of language that isn’t suitable for the likes of Lambeau field. It means, simply, that your quarterback cannot play because he is by default not elite. This is wrong.
