    Exclusive Interview: Nick Foles May Be in Jacksonville, But He's Still the Same Guy

    Nick Foles of the Jacksonville Jaguars looks on before the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on August 08, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland.

    It just doesn't look right. 

    Nick Foles not wearing Eagles green. 

    His second time around, he was here for what seemed like a minute, but the legacy he left behind will forever be etched in the annals of Philadelphia sports history. He brought a city to tears of joy and jubilation. You knew the Eagles couldn't keep him forever with their commitment to Carson Wentz. Foles earned the right to find a team of his own.

    And so he has in Jacksonville. 

    Can he turn the Jaguars' culture around? 

    Can he get his offense to adapt to his "stay in the moment" belief? 

    He is already being looked upon as the savior of a franchise that has only been to three AFC championship games since its inception in 1995 and has advanced to the playoffs just one time since 2007. Foles now has the money, a team, and the weight of a city starving for success on his broad shoulders. For some, that's too much of a burden to carry. Time will tell how Foles handles the challenge. 

    I recently had a chance to go down to Jacksonville to speak with the Jags new signal caller. As my Gunn-on-One reveals, he may have relocated, but he's still the same guy Philadelphia knows and loves.
