ESPN football analyst and former Eagles cornerback Herman Edwards appeared on Philly Sports Talk on Wednesday to speak about his former team's keys to success for the upcoming season and his belief in quarterback Nick Foles and coach Chip Kelly.
"Nick Foles is a young, developing quarterback, and hopefully he continues to develop and really become the guy that everyone wants him to become in Philadelphia, and that’s a franchise quarterback," said Edwards, who was speaking while at the American Century Celebrity Classic golf tournament near Lake Tahoe.
Foles is entering a critical -- and more difficult -- year in his career, since there's more of his offense on film to study and analyze. And along with a Pro Bowl campaign in 2013 comes the pressure of having an equally successful, if not better, season under center.
"How this offense develops, how he develops will say a lot about his future," Edwards said. "I think he has a bright future in Philadelphia."
Edwards' faith in the team extends further to second-year coach Kelly and his fast-paced system.
"I think he came in there and a lot of people were wondering if it was going to work, if it was not going to work," he said. "The key was he won the players over."
