Former Arizona Wildcat Nick Foles debuts for Philadelphia Eagles

Elsa

Nick Foles didn't have the most memorable of NFL debuts for the Eagles Sunday after two of his turnovers resulted in Cowboy touchdowns.

After much clamor for the clipboard holder to finally get a shot, QB Nick Foles, an Arizona alum, was thrust into action Sunday for the Philadelphia Eagles after Michael Vick sustained a concussion against the Cowboys.

Foles was welcomed on the field with a standing ovation in the second quarter and proceeded to put up a line of 219 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 22 of 32 passing in the Eagles' 38-23 loss. Foles also coughed up a fumble that was returned for a touchdown, much like the interception he threw.

Foles' performance was respectable considering the circumstances but it's clear that he didn't come close to stealing Vick's job. Nevertheless, the rookie signal caller might get another go next week in Washington against the Redskins if Vick is unable to pass all the necessary concussion tests in time.

And surely there are some Wildcat football fans out there who will be quite intrigued at the prospect of what Foles can do with a full week of preparation and first-team reps under his belt.
