From the flap

People have been trying to define me throughout my entire career.

I’m the guy. I’m not the guy.
I’m mechanically sound. I’m too slow.
I’m able to light up a scoreboard. I’m a game manager.
I’m a building block. I’m a stopgap.
I’m a franchise quarterback. I’m an insurance policy.
I’m a Pro Bowl MVP. I’m a career second-stringer.
I’m dependable. I’m a fluke.
I’m a Super Bowl MVP. I’m trade bait.

I’ve been overlooked, praised, questioned, lauded, labeled, celebrated, and derided—sometimes all in the span of a single week.

That’s life in the NFL.

It took me years to separate Nick Foles the person from Nick Foles the football player. It was a long and, at times, painful process—in fact, I still struggle with it. But making that distinction has completely transformed my heart, my career, my perspective, and my life.

The journey hasn’t always been easy, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes and missteps along the way. But looking back, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a thing. Because at the end of the day, the lessons I’ve learned from my failures, struggles, and weaknesses have made me who I am today.
