Chip Kelly gave Nick Foles the closest thing to a long-term endorsement when he was asked by Angelo Cataldi during his regularly-scheduled Monday appearance on 94-WIP if the second-year player had the makings to be the Eagles' quarterback of the future.
"Yeah, you hope so," Kelly said. "And I don't mean to be coy. I always say this ... you can say that whomever is your player of the future and then the next week they get hurt. I hope that Nick's here for a long time. I'm a big supporter of him. I think he does a fantastic job. But we also know that injuries occur in this game and that's why I always qualify what I say. But I love the kid and I think he's playing outstanding."
Foles is 5-1 as a starter this season after the Eagles' 24-21 win over the Cardinals on Sunday and leads the NFL in passer rating.
