Foles used to be scared to throw deep, I think it was because his arm wasn't strong enough and he wasn't very confident making those throws. Not that his arm is perfect, but Nick made a huge jump in arm strength since last year and it's very noticeable.

Not really that noticeable to me. Seems like Nick just has better placement on his deep balls, but they seem to hang in the air longer than I'd like and our receivers have bailed him out a few times on underthrown deep balls.

Not just deep balls though, all throws have much more zip behind them.

He does seem to have a little more zip on balls thrown 10-20 yards, but that might just be confidence.

I think the arm strength has always been there, the confidence is the biggest factor coming from a not so good first year into a great second year.

Could be the case, everyone was complaining about his arm strength last year though, it was visibly not coming out of his hands with a lot of force. This year nobody has really questioned his arm strength, I think that alone says a lot.

Definitely. Could be he improved his footwork too, he looked a lot more stable(if that even means anything) vs the skins.

Can we acknowledge his sick pump fakes? I find myself falling for his pump fakes on more than one occasion.

How great would it be if Nick did his dance moves whenever he runs in a td?

Imagine if Nick just threw the game winning touchdown in the Superb Owl and is being interviewed...
"Nick, how do you feel?"
"Do Eagles have large talons?"
