Last week, LeSean McCoy backed up Nick Foles:
“I think Nick’s a good quarterback. He’s the leader of our team. Things just didn’t work out for him this year due to injury, but we’ve got his back. As a team, we didn’t play well enough to win and get into the playoffs.”
Shady’s thoughts are more “it wasn’t Nick’s fault” than “Nick is our QB of the future,” but Jordan Matthews takes it all a step further. “I think everyone has seen the type of production he can have. Before he got hurt he was 6-2,” Matthews told Fox Sports. “It goes without saying what he did his first year when he got the opportunity to play a whole season. I believe he’s a great quarterback and our franchise quarterback.”
So that’s two behind Foles and dozens of crazy people wanting to trade up to number one to get Mariota. Get ready for four more months of this.
