Filling in for an injured Michael Vick, Nick Foles played very much like a rookie third-round pick.
Granted, he made a few good reads and throws (particularly on two touchdown passes to Clay Harbor), but largely all his completions were short passes to the running back or tight end. He also made a few mental errors and locked into his primary target too often. The later resulted in an easy read and interception by the Patriots defense.
Now, he did start making throws down the field in the second half, but remember that it was against a second-string defense.
That being said, he has more than lived up to the expectations placed on him. With more progress, he could make a very nice backup and could easily push Mike Kafka for the permanent backup spot behind Vick.
