Nick Foles will start for the Chicago Bears on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. He replaced Mitchell Trubisky in Week 3 and led the Bears to a comeback victory.
The Colts are coached by Frank Reich, who was the offensive coordinator when Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl LII victory.
"He was the one who really figured me out as a player and realized that we had it all wrong," Foles said of Reich. "They just threw some plays out there one day and said: 'Just go play these plays. We studied you and these are the plays you do.' And sure enough, something triggered inside of me.
"And he figured me out as a player to where, even during games when I'd come to the sidelines, usually coaches want to coach you up and all this, and he'd go, 'Just keep doing it, just keep doing it.' Like, he wouldn't say much. At first it was sort of weird because you're not used to a coach doing that. He was like: 'I trust you. Just go do your thing.' No matter what, if I threw an interception or I threw a touchdown, he cared more about the person than the player. And that says a lot about him and that's why I have all the respect in the world."
