Eagles confirm Foles will start opener

The Philadelphia Eagles appear to be ready to go with veteran Nick Foles at quarterback to start their title defense on September 6 against the Atlanta Falcons.

"It is about the football team and the best interests of the 53", Pederson told reporters who had assembled for the coordinators' regularly scheduled press conferences on Monday. The six-year veteran started the final three of games of the regular season in 2017 and then led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.

Philadelphia has something of a quarterback controversy underfoot, with Carson Wentz not quite 100 percent from the knee injury that forced him to miss the end of last season. Worse, Foles looked very much the opposite of the quarterback who won Super Bowl MVP honors. It's expected that whenever he returns to full health, he will start and Foles will go back to being the backup.

This obviously will not be Foles' first time filling in for Wentz.

O.J. denied he could reveal any details about their murder, contending: "Well, first of all, she wasn't my wife". Simpson's reactions are uncomfortable, awkward. but totally priceless. "I didn't kill nobody", Simpson added.

Thursday night actually will mark the second time Foles has started the Eagles' season opener in his career. He said he was not going to "publicly" announce his starter, but he did acknowledge that Wentz had not yet been cleared for contact.

With that information, it would be impossible to conclude anything than the decision on Wentz was out of the coach's hands.

However, Foles did not carry that level of play into his preseason appearances, when he completed 16 of 26 passes for 171 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Wentz has been doing some work during camp but has still not yet been cleared for contact. You must hear this!

He also said that if Wentz didn't get the call to start, he would be "kinda" surprised.
