Nick Foles numbers drop in dome games

Saw this on another site

In seven dome games as a starter, Foles is 3-4, and his completion percentage drops to 58.18%, compared to north of 62%, and his TD ratio goes way down, below one TD per game. In those seven games, he has only thrown five TDs (and four INTs). As a result, Folesís rating in domes is 81.3, well under his overall rating.

His Comp% drops against NFC teams 2%.

In all of that he has never played the New Orleans Saints in the Dome. Time to test his metal.

The casual fan who watches from their TV set will never understand how damn loud the Dome gets. I mean we are talking ears ringing in post game loud.

I can't imagine how difficult it is for opposing teams/QB to call plays. False starts are highly likely. Advantage - home field dome.

Re: Nick Foles numbers drop in dome games

Well the domes are fast fields and you have to be faster with the throws and less room for errors. I think he throws a lot more just throw it up and hope for the best passes and he gets lucky a lot. You can't really do that in the dome.

You can scream at the person next to you and they can't hear/understand you.

Re: Nick Foles numbers drop in dome games

When I was lucky enough to be there I used the 4 fingers in the mouth whistle technique!

I drove the fans in the row in front of me nuts as Iv'e been told it was ear splittingly loud! You get a lot of people doing that and the QB is screwed!!!

GEAUX SAINTS!

Re: Nick Foles numbers drop in dome games

I don't think he will have a good game for a bunch of reasons. We have Dome field advantage, we have turf, we have Drew Brees, we have Alvin Kamara, we have Michael Thomas, we have Sean Payton ....... and that's just the tip of the spear!
