He thrived in Chip Jelly's Zone Read, run first offense last season.
The Eagles were number 1 in the entire NFL in rushing offense by a large margin.
They averaged a remarkable 5.1 yards per rushing attempt, number 1 in the NFL.
Foles was number 1 in the NFL in passer rating, surpassing even Peyton Manning.
In addition, the Eagles, though they led the NFL in rushing, were also # 9 in the NFL in passing offense.
None of the other "Young Guns", "New Breed", "Dual Threat" QB's came close to putting up those type of numbers, especially the combination of rushing and passing success.
The closest was BOB 3, who paced the Redskins to a 16th finish in NFL passing offense.
One has to wonder what Foles would have accomplished had the Eagles not finished 29th in NFL Total Defense.
After all, the only teams that made the NFC playoffs last year that did not finish in the top 5 in NFL in total defense were the Packers and Eagles.
