Jaguars’ Nick Foles not ‘freaking out’ over two-game losing streak
The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently on a small losing streak in spite of having quarterback Nick Foles back in the fold during their Week 11 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Some fans and analysts are already worried over the team’s state this season.
However, the one-time Super Bowl champion is far from worried about his team’s current status. He believes the Jaguars can still fight back and finish the season on a high note.
He shared his approach on the losing streak. Based on his words, it seems like he’s effectively blocking out all of the external noise.
“Not pressing means don’t freak out. I’ll let everyone else freak out. I’m not going to freak out. I’m going to continue to come to work. I’m going to continue to believe in my teammates. I don’t come in here and say, ‘Ah, it’s just going to happen.’”
He also shared his take on the sense of urgency required out of the team to get out of their rut.
“It’s not something where, “Oh, I’m going to turn it on and have this sense of urgency,’’’ he said. “If you all of a sudden have to turn it on, did you ever have it? – is the question.
“I’m going to be who I am as a person. I’m going to continue to prepare and get these guys ready. Ultimately, we have to get on the field and we have to win a game as a team.”
After missing much of the season due to injury, Foles made a strong return against the Colts, finishing with 296 passing yards and two touchdowns.
What the 30-year-old QB provided was solid advice. And if the Jaguars take the things he said to heart, there’s no way they wouldn’t be able to bounce back.
