Nick Foles to open season for Eagles

The page has turned to the Eagles, with the Falcons' Pro Bowl linebacker grilled about Philadelphia's run-pass option plays, quarterback situation and offensive line. Since Wentz hadn't officially been cleared for contact heading into the weekend, it seemed like only a matter of time before it was announced that Foles would begin the year as the starter, bringing a whole new level of pressure to the table. We'll get a definitive answer Thursday, and, assuming it's Foles, the coach can only hope the Eagles will see the postseason, not preseason, version.

Wentz has been recovering from surgery last December to fix a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. "Nick Foles will be my starter Week 1". With the Week 1 deadline out of the way, it will be interesting to see just how long the Eagles wait to put their franchise quarterback back onto the field. Wentz is still on the early side of a traditional timetable for a return from an ACL tear in his left knee, which typically takes nine to 12 months.

Quinn claimed that his team was more concerned about preparing for the Eagles' offense overall, rather than for Foles or Wentz. Wentz took just 54. It is worth remembering, however, that Foles has a history of stepping up and playing some of his best games on the biggest stages. It was the Super Bowl, and he won MVP leading the team to a championship. Thursday night, the first game of the season in the National Football League, will be a huge stage.
