“The hysteria in Philadelphia regarding their MVP candidate under center and the team’s dazzling play throughout the season evaporated after Week 14 when it was learned Carson Wentz had torn his ACL and would be out for the season,” Jones said. “Nick Foles has been charged with taking his team to the Promised Land and we believe that he has the weapons at his disposal to exploit the weaknesses in the Falcons’ defense.”
Is it a downgrade from a guy that was having an All-Pro season? Considering how far Foles fell, yes. But remember, Foles was once Wentz in Philly.
