Nick Foles proves he’s tough enou

Nick Foles became Philly’s quarterback yesterday … not the Eagles quarterback, because he’s been that for a year. No, yesterday he became the quarterback of all the rabid 700-level type Philly fans.

After getting blindsided and obliterated, Nick got up, never missed a play, and threw the go-ahead touchdown to beat division rival Washington.

Here’s how the players saw it (Birds 24/7 blog):

“I see Nick on the ground, so I went there,” said tackle Andrew Gardner. “And I was just kind of looking at Nick. And looking at him, I said, ‘He’s done.’ I didn’t think he was coming back in. He was just kind of sitting there, toughening up, sucking up the pain. I thought he was done, certainly gonna be out a few plays.”

Added Dennis Kelly: “The fact that he got up and was fired up, just as fired up as the entire stadium, I think it really shows his level of commitment to winning and to this team. It’s a great sign for your leader, your quarterback that he’s able to take something like that and just stare it in its face and say: ‘What else you got?’

Yeah, Nick’s my quarterback. Did I mention he’s from Texas.

Working in the newsroom, I had a front row seat as the internet just about killed newspapers. I knew I had to either evolve or risk becoming insignificant. So I changed. I learned how to build websites and blogs, and I used social media to go to my readers. Now the goal is to use what I've learned to honor God and serve my community.
