    Foles play this post season has been anything BUT "average." It's been almost historically good.

    But it's just one piece of the puzzle.

    I would be very hesitant to bring in a guy who had one good year, one great post season, and a bunch of nothing.

    But it's a moot point. A trade makes no sense all the way around for any team (including Philly.)

    Let's use a 2 as an example.

    For any team trading the 2, that's a LARGE price for a guy you still have to have some skepticism about.

    For Philly, that's not NEARLY enough to get rid of a back-up who has proven to be able to run the team effectively, when your #1 guy MIGHT be ready for football activity by Training Camp... ORRRRR.... MIGHT not be the same guy at all in 2018.

    Foles ain't going anywhere, and that's probably a good thing.

    Would take Foles in a heart beat. Has been successful under two different coaches. Fischer is horrible.

    Still draft a QB.

    I think we've seen how valuable a backup is and Foles is probably top 5. Doubt they trade him w/ Wentz coming off an ACL injury.

    Ugh... so agree with your Ugh's. With the recent news, I'll take, Teddy B, Sam B, or even Josh M as next years starter to develop a 1st rounder in the draft. Not Nick in a trade.

    it goes like this

    Cardinals give up Pro Bowl CB DRC and a 2nd round pick AND a huge contract

    Philly gave up Kevin Kolb

    ....yea DRC played at a high level...and IS STILL PLAYING at a high level TODAY!!!


    lesson: don't trade for a backup QB....especially with Philly

    You'd have to give up a bunch to get him AND you'd have to give up $$$. No thanks. Go to the draft....there are great ab's there.

    I like Foles, wouldnt of mind him coming here when they had Palmer. But to put him in the starting role as the franchise QB going forward? I dunno, shades of Kevin Kolb come to mind.

    Not at all in my opinion he has been doing this in the biggest games.

    Kolb in his best dreams couldn't make throws Foles has.
