PHILADELPHIA - Nick Foles isnt close statistically to where he was last season. Kendell Beckwith Youth Jersey . Hes near the bottom in several passing categories and some are wondering if Mark Sanchez should get a chance to start for the Philadelphia Eagles.Not coach Chip Kelly.I think you rate your quarterback in terms of, Are you winning, are you losing? Kelly said. Nick is 5-2.Foles surpassed all expectations in 2013 when he came off the bench in Week 5 and put together one of the best seasons by any quarterback in history. He threw 27 touchdown passes and only two interceptions, setting an NFL record for best TD/interception ratio. He completed 64 per cent of his regular-season passes for 2,891 yards and his passer rating of 119.2 was the third-highest ever. He tied an NFL record with seven TD passes in his ninth career start at Oakland on Nov. 3.Overall, including the playoffs, Foles tossed 29 TDs and only two picks in 350 attempts and finished off as the offensive MVP of the Pro Bowl.Things arent going quite so smoothly for the third-year pro. Foles already has nine interceptions and hes lost three fumbles. His completion percentage (59.2) and his passer rating (80.7) both are sixth-worst in the NFL.I have to do a better job, Foles said. Words cant describe it. I have to keep working on fundamentals, footwork and decision-making. Im going to keep studying film and keep working. Its all correctable and I can fix it. My words dont mean anything. I have to go out there and prove it.Foles threw two picks in a 24-20 loss at Arizona on Sunday and misfired on three straight passes from the Cardinals 16.Its a concern when we turn the ball over, offensive co-ordinator Pat Shurmur said. Weve got to correct the errors that we make in terms of turning the ball over, and again theres a reason for it. And were just going to have to just continue to try to improve it, and I think thats really it.Kelly wouldnt put all the blame on Foles.I know weve thrown nine interceptions, but theres not a consistent (thing), he said. Sometimes its the rush, sometimes we werent running the proper route, and sometimes its the quarterback.Foles threw one interception against Arizona off his back foot instead of getting set in the pocket. Hes only been sacked twice in the past six games, but hes made risky throws to avoid the rush at times.What Im finding with Nick is when he sets his feet and steps into the throws, hes awesome, Shurmur said. What were also finding is there are times when he gets flushed or he flushes himself and he doesnt have his feet underneath him and hes not as good as he could be if they were, and I think that can be said for all quarterbacks. When we do flush, weve got to remain a passer.There are times when an incomplete pass is really the right thing to do, Shurmur said. But as a passer, if you can stay in the pocket, trust the pocket, theres no reason to flush, go through your progression, as the down gets late, then you start to use your feet and do the right thing with the football.The defending NFC East champion Eagles are only a half-game behind Dallas (6-2) in the division and still have two games remaining against the Cowboys. Though Sanchez, the former New York Jets star, excelled in the preseason, he wont get a chance unless Foles is injured.NOTES: C Jason Kelce practiced with the starters, just one month after having surgery for a sports hernia. Kelce has missed the last four games. ... RB Darren Sproles also practiced after missing one game because of a sprained knee. ... CB Brandon Boykin and S Nate Allen didnt practice because of hamstring injuries. ...

"I wasnt waving the pom-poms to be involved with it to start with," Carlyle said after a 5-2 win over Carolina on Sunday night. "Its been a trying time. "Specifically we havent played as well as wed like to hang our hat on.LONDON - Saido Berahino was rewarded for his prolific form for West Bromwich Albion by earning a first call-up by England on Thursday, while winger Theo Walcott is back despite playing only 10 minutes for Arsenal after a 10-month injury absence.There were also recalls for midfielders Ross Barkley, Stewart Downing and Michael Carrick ahead of Englands European Championship qualifier at home to Slovenia on Nov. 15 and a friendly against neighbour Scotland in Glasgow three days later.Captain Wayne Rooney was included in a 26-man squad and is set to make his 100th appearance for England against Slovenia.The Burundi-born Berahino is the top-scoring English player in the Premier League with seven goals in 10 matches, and his goals have also helped Englands under-21 team into next summers European Championship.England manager Roy Hodgson said he only hadnt called up Berahino earlier because of his importance to the under-21s.Theres no reason to pass over his credentials yet again, Hodgson said. Im sure Saido will come wanting to play, but he faces stiff competition and he understands that. Hes not just there for the learning process.Walcott only returned to action last weekend from damaged cruciate knee ligaments after careful rehabilitation at Arsenal. Hodgson sees Walcott as a key member of his attack but may not select him in the upcoming games.He is continuing with a fitness program that we will have to make certain that we do during the time he is with us, Hodgson said. We have given him and his club the guarantee that we will do that. (Arsenal manager) Arsene (Wengger) is happy for us to take him. Kendell Beckwith Jersey. .Daniel Sturridge — Rooneys first-choice partner up front — is still missing with a calf injury and Hodgson never entertained the idea of selecting the striker after a call to Liverpool enquiring about Sturridges fitness wasnt returned by manager Brendan Rodgers.Ive left a message for Brendan — the message was that its pretty obvious that (Sturridge) is not fit, Hodgson said, and Brendans not rung back to counter that he actually is.Liverpool right back Glen Johnson was overlooked, perhaps signalling the end of his international career with Hodgson preferring youngsters Calum Chambers and Nathaniel Clyne.England is top of Group E in qualifying for Euro 2016 after opening with three straight wins. Slovenia is second on six points.___England:Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Southampton), Ben Foster (West Bromwich Albion), Joe Hart (Manchester City).Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Calum Chambers (Arsenal), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling (both Manchester United).Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Everton), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Stewart Downing (West Ham), Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana (both Liverpool), James Milner (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Andros Townsend (Tottenham), Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott (both Arsenal).Forwards: Rickie Lambert (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Daniel Welbeck (Arsenal), Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion).
