Jacksonville Jaguars: The Nick Foles Experiment Flops
Yes, Foles will be an upgrade over Blake Bortles, but that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement. While Foles has stepped up in big moments, that’s not the same as leading a team over a 16-game season, and he’s never started more than 10 games in any season.
In Jacksonville, he’ll be throwing to a relatively young group of receivers while relying on Leonard Fournette to stay healthy and hoping the Jacksonville defense can return to being the 2017 version. If everything doesn’t break perfectly for the Jaguars, there’s only so much Foles can do. He’s not the kind of quarterback who can carry a team on his back, which is why things may not work out as planned in Jacksonville.
