Joe Namath feels Nick Foles is the best passer in the NFL

In an exclusive interview with Yahoo Sports and the Shutdown Corner blog, former New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath counts himself a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles second-year quarterback. Foles plays in his first playoff game on Saturday night against the New Orleans Saints, and Namath thinks the Eagles have an edge in this game because of Foles.

“Over the past month, I’ve decided that Nick Foles is one of the best passers I’ve seen,” Namath said. “He throws on the move, what he puts on the ball – wow. He is special. He runs around there like an NBA guard, or maybe even a small forward. He’s big; he can throw. His throwing motion, throwing on the move, reminds me of Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay. Throwing that ball, this cat is good. He gives them a big edge.”

That is a huge boost of confidence for the former Arizona Wildcat. Foles has definitely matured as a passer in Chip Kelly’s offense, but how many more games can he keep it going?
