Former Arizona quarterback Nick Foles' debut with Philadelphia goes ... alright, it went damn well

You should watch this GIF of Nick Foles from the mothership by clicking the link or hitting the jump.

Former Arizona Wildcat Nick Foles' preseason debut with the Philadelphia Eagles couldn't have gone much better. He finished with 144 yards through the air on 6-for-10 passing. Alrighty, maybe it came against the third-string defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It's pretty funny to read the second half gamechat over at Bleeding Green Nation. When Foles enters in the third, there are the usual comments; he's skittish in the pocket and he likes to check down a lot.

Then the gamethread explodes. That's because threw a 70-yard touchdown to Damarius Johnson on the first play of one drive, then follows it up with a 44-yard touchdown to Mardy Gilyard on the first snap of the very next possession.

The latter was the unsurprising fade variety as seen in the below GIF, which we here have seen with Foles dialing up former Wildcat and now-Raider Juron Criner.

Foles ended the night with a 143.8 quarterback rating.
