PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Is Nick Foles—the quarterback who had 27 touchdowns, two interceptions, and led the NFL in passer rating last season—overrated? That’s what Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com thinks.
Prisco named the most overrated and underrated player on each NFL team on Friday in a piece for CBSSports.com (read it here). For the Eagles, Prisco listed Foles as the Eagles most overrated player and Bradon Boykin as their most underrated player.
Prisco wrote of Foles, “Let’s slow the train down some, OK. He did some good things last season, but you’d think he was a star already. It takes time. Let’s see him do it again. Not saying he can’t, but let’s see it again.”
“Look, I like Nick Foles. I’m not sitting here saying he’s not a good quarterback, I’m just saying he’s not as good as his reputation,” Prisco said Monday on the 94WIP Afternoon Show.
Prisco also ranked—of note—Tony Romo the most underrated Cowboy, Wes Welker the most overrated Bronco, Julius Pepper the most overrated Packer, and Darren McFadden the most overrated Raider.
“He’s significantly better than his reputation,” Prisco said of Romo on 94WIP Afternoons.
