Nick Foles Named Starting Quarterback for Jaguars

Nick Foles Named Starting Quarterback for Jaguars”

It may be awhile before Washington State fans are able to turn on their television again and see Gardner Minshew starting in the National Football League again.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going with quarterback Nick Foles over rookie sensation Gardner Minshew. They are 4-5 years old and are still hunting in the southern part of the AFC, and that is the type of situation in which they expect Foles to excel.

That's the announcement head coach Doug Marrone made on Tuesday, restoring the veteran to the spot he held when the season began. The Jags also signed Foles to a four-year, $88 million deal with a franchise-record $50.125 million in guarantees, so they have a financial incentive to start him as well. He completed 188-of-307 passes (61.2 percent) for 2,285 yards and threw 13 touchdowns to four interceptions.

"We've progressively brought him back into drills and brought him into some high-speed, close-quarter rushing, where guys were coming at him, blitzes where people were coming free", Marrone said. Minshew finished that first game going 22-for-25 with 275 yards and two touchdown passes (one interception). Marrone said following Sunday's 26-3 loss to Houston in London that he would take some time before deciding whether to go with Foles or Minshew.

"I tried to take that out and put it as a body of work, I think that's important", Marrone said. "I feel a whole lot different about him now than I did prior to him playing, in a very positive way". "I think emotions can run sometimes differently, so I looked at the body of work". He relieved an injured Carson Wentz in 2017 and led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl LII championship (he was the game's MVP) and replaced Wentz last season and led the Eagles to the playoffs.
