The Chicago Bears quarterbacks coach has high praise for Nick Foles.
Yesterday, the Chicago Bears did not practice, but that did not keep them from making news. After two straight days of practice, in which Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles played to a draw, the Bears got a day off as they ease back into football shape in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although they weren’t on the field making plays, they were still creating some buzz. That’s because of the comments of newly hired quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. Flip, as he’s affectionately known, is very familiar with Foles, having spent time with him in both Philadelphia and Jacksonville. Notably, he was on the Eagles’ staff in 2017 when Foles led the team on a magical run to beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
