Eagles QB Nick Foles has turned the ball over nine times (he's fumbled four times and lost two) in six games this season. While the Eagles are still 5-1, despite the mistakes, head coach Chip Kelly expressed concern after Sunday night's 27-0 win over the Giants.
"If we keep winning, no,it doesn't matter,'' Kelly began. "But if it hurts us, then, yeah (I'm concerned). We still have to do a better job from that standpoint. We were a lot cleaner last year from a turnover standpoint, and he'll be the first to tell you that.''
Foles threw two interceptions, Sunday, that in a closer game could have been costly. He also fumbled, but rookie wide receiver Josh Huff recovered.
Foles was playing pretty well and hitting receivers on target for the most part Sunday night against the Giants, but didn't see a lot of pressure. His two INTs were just bad decisions. There has been a lot of talk about his footwork when throwing the ball behind a shaky offensive line, however the Eagles feel that can be corrected. He's not always going to have a perfect pocket while dropping back, though. Foles' job is safe for now, but it's clearly an area that needs to improve.
