Nick Foles isn’t messing around. Not only did he go as far as saying that “he isn’t at training camp to be the backup”, but much more importantly he cut his hair. Your move Michael Vick.
So instead of doing an overused “who should start Nick Foles or Michael Vick?” poll, I thought that this would be more appropriate. Remember, Foles hairstyle could be the deciding factor on whether Chip Kelly leads the Eagles to a Lombardi Trophy or flames out in the NFL.
Oh yeah, Foles also said this while rocking his short-hair.
“I have all the confidence in the world in my ability. But I still respect the players around me and I know what they’re capable of doing. But at the end of the day, I’m not here to be a backup. I’m here to be the guy. I don’t think we play this game to sit on the bench. We play it to play, and I’m here to play.”
Mark it down, Foles starts week one.
