The Philadelphia Eagles collapsed in the second half of the season after starting 5-1, and they ended up missing the playoffs despite finishing with a 10-6 record.
Nonetheless, the Eagles felt the impact of having to play with a backup quarterback in Mark Sanchez after starter Nick Foles went down with a season-ending collarbone injury.
Foles had fallen back down to Earth in the 2014 season after posting astronomical numbers in his first season a starter, where he threw 27 touchdown passes with just two interceptions in 10 starts for a 119.2 passer rating.
His struggles have contributed to rumors that the Eagles may trade him, but Foles is confident that he will remain the Eagles’ starting quarterback in the 2015 season.
“I’m still being introduced as that, but then you get asked different questions, the rumors and everything, so that is a part of it,” Foles said to NFL Network.
However, rumors have floated around that the Eagles are planning to trade up in the draft and select Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota to reunite him with head coach Chip Kelly.
