Bears Name QB Nick Foles New Starter Going Forward


Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters that QB Nick Foles will get the start in Week 4 against the Colts, per Kevin Fishbain.

Nagy clarified later that Foles is now the team’s starter moving forward, per Stacy Dales.

Given how Foles performed after taking over this past week, tossing three touchdowns and leading Chicago to a comeback win, this comes as zero surprise. 

Foles was unable to unseat QB Mitchell Trubisky in a competition during training camp this summer. However, it was widely seen as only a matter of time until Chicago turned to Foles given Trubisky’s past struggles. 

Foles, 31, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. Philadelphia traded Foles to the Rams back in 2015 in a deal for QB Sam Bradford and he later signed an extension with the team.

Foles lasted just over a year with the Rams before he was released and later signed on with the Chiefs. After a year in Kansas City, Foles agreed to a two-year, $11 million contract with the Eagles. 

From there, Foles signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jaguars that included $50.125 million guaranteed. He was traded to the Bears this offseason. 

In 2020, Foles has appeared in one game for the Bears and completed 16-29 pass attempts for 188 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

Daniel Jones is not ready for primetime,the
Offensive line is still trash. Giants need to stop going cheap on the guys that block and open the holes for this non existent run game. The defense could play better if they weren’t on the field 30 plus minutes a game

Jets should have never hired this coach after his poor results in Miami. he gave no indication of doing a good job there. And the QB needs a QB friendly coach to teach him how to make decisions in the NFL. And can someone please get a play caller for the Giants and Jets,tell them to bring receivers with them.
