LeSean McCoy predicts big things for Nick Foles

What will Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles do for an encore following a stellar first season as the starter?

Foles had 27 touchdowns and two interceptions last season and led the NFL with a 119.2 passer rating.

As far as running back LeSean McCoy is concerned, even bigger things are ahead for Foles.

"Nick, he wants to play, he wants to get better. He's playing lights out even in camp, but he still wants to be at a higher level," McCoy told CSN Philly. "He's at that peak where people know him like, 'Man, this Foles, is he that good?'

"Because you see the stats, you see the numbers. I think this is the year he blows 'em out like, 'Yeah, I'm Nick Foles. I'm Philadelphia's quarterback. I'm the guy.' And this is the year he blows it away."
