"The mobility's going to help, obviously", Marrone said.
That was apparently enough to take the job from Foles. "Gardner's going to start for us versus the Chargers". Nick Foles turned the ball over three times before being benched in favor of Gardner Minshew. After completing 70.2 percent of his passes, throwing for 296 yards, tossing a pair of touchdowns, and posting a 92.2 passer rating in his first game back, Foles has completed just 62.9 percent of his passes, has more interceptions (1) than touchdowns (0), and a passer rating of 72.3 in the following two contests. That said, it appears Doug Marrone felt a change was and spark was needed. The second half under Minshew was slightly better, with 137 yards, 123 net passing, nine first downs, one INT and 11 points. But his would-be TD pass slipped through Dede Westbrook's hands and resulted in an interception. He lost two fumbles, too, including one strip sack that was returned for a touchdown.More news: Could First BLACK WIDOW Trailer Debut Saturday in Brazil?
"I handled the situation this morning", Marrone said.
"It's brutal", Marrone said. He'll be a pro about this. "It's time for me to show out, to show the world what I can do". "We're planning on him playing". Only 10 of those points came in the first half of those games, including zero points and just 105 total yards against the Bucs. It was the team's 18th loss in its past 24 games. They finish out the regular season at Oakland, at Atlanta and home against Indianapolis.More news: Utah school substitute chides student who's thankful for adoptive gay dads
Where the offense and team go from here will be determined by Minshew's play down the stretch. Foles has a dead cap hit of $33.875 million if released before June 1 but that number drops to $21.375 million if he's released after June 1.More news: Australian Open to honour Court after same-sex marriage dispute
Minshew stepped in for Foles and had an impressive debut: 22 of 25 for 275 yards and two TDs with one interception. Now he's got the job back, but that doesn't mean Foles is exclusively to blame for the offense's problems. I haven't spoken to either quarterback afterward. "I just think it's the right thing to do". It's a team game.
