I disagree. He didn't last here because of Chip Kelly.  He hasn't lasted in KC because they already had a starter, and they may be looking to move on from Smith if Tyrod is available.  Also, when was the last time the Rams had a QB worth talking about under Fischer? He was the main reason why Foles didn't have success there.

I sometimes agree with RTK, but when it comes to QB discussions I pretty much never do.

Oh come on... He failed in Philly because he isn't good enough despite a system that helped his numbers. He failed in LA because he's not good enough and that team is a joke on offense. And he failed in Kansas because he wasn't good enough to beat out the all mighty Alex Smith.

People need to cut the excuses. He's not a good player.

Foles is a good QB. You can win with him if he is surrounded by a team...he can get the job done and I would have no issue if he was back with us.

The Rams stink and anyone who is judging any QB playing behind that OL, with those WRs and horrible coaching...makes me laugh. 

Sam has played better since he left and Nick has played in 2 games and went 2-0 while completing 66% of his passes...3 TDs and 0 INTs. 

For the record, Chip got rid of Foles because Chip was an idiot. Jeff Fisher is unemployed and the issue in KC is based on money because Eric Berry is priority #1. 

 Me either .

It makes me laugh how quick fans were to defend Bradford during his time with the Rams. Who had a better supporting cast. Yet are so quick to  trash Foles,  who had much less in support. A system that didn't fit his abilities to add  insult to injury for his failures there. 

He wasn't cut by Chip as claimed. He was traded for Bradford . Big difference.. Chip himself said, " He never wanted to trade Foles."  So where people get that he was cut is  being misinformed.

As for the Ram's. .He  asked to be released , and they obliged.  Who wouldn't want to leave that circus ?  So if you choose to see that as being cut, than that is your choice. Personally, I see it as asking to be released from a team that really wasn't a good fit for him. And  realizing he had no future there.

As for his being cut by the Chiefs, that's  purely someone's  speculating that he could be released . I think they would be making a big mistake  to release him. Because I doubt Tyler Bray ( who has no game day experience) will be any  better  an option  as their back up. Than someone who has been through the fire,  in more ways than one in Foles.

Chip also said he wasn't the GM, which in essence, he was. Never go strictly by what a coach says.

I don't know that it was all the system, cause much more talented qbs failed miserably in that system. Not saying foles was great but, I wouldn't say it was just the system either. More of lightning in a bottle for him and chip that year. Both have some skills just not sustainable skills

It wouldn't surprise me if the Chiefs cut Foles, let him shop around for a bit, and then re-sign him at a lower price. That would be a total Reid move.

What more talented QBs failed in that system buddy? If you mean Bradford and Keep then I would argue that it was because by the time they played in the system teams had worked it out. Obviously Foles isn't completely hopeless because he set a lot of records in college and he started his NFL career well. But I think you are right his huge numbers in the NFL were lightning in a bottle. Bottom line he's just not a good player.

I agree he isn't a good player I said after the saints playoff game he was done you could see his flaws big-time that game. I'm just saying he isn't completely with out skills. Just like chip you could see his flaws the first year he was here but, he isn't with out coaching skills either but, not good enough. They both caught the league off guard.

Good to see there are still some members of the Cult of Foles out there who are still as delusional about him as always.

whats really funny is you still take any click bait that has foles in it as a chance to try and cure your butt hurt that Foles even at his worst was 100 x more the QB Vick  or any other of the draft picks you loved in past 4 years

Your opinions aren't facts, as you claim them to be. Stop.

Is Foles a starting calibre qb? Not likely. Let's leave it at  that.

Where did I claim them to be facts? Oh wait no I didn't so get back in your box and pipe down you melt. 

Foles isn't a good QB and for that reason I and I stress the I here... Would not want him back and this whole freaking love in that some fans have for him needs to stop. He wasn't the guy from the start and that's been shown at every team he's been at.

Love? You're being ridiculous. Its called respect. The last time any of us Eagles fans were able to enjoy a fun Eagles season, it was 2013, led by Foles and that fun to watch offense. Stuff like that leave a lasting impression on fans. Its about respect.

Who cares what he has done after? Enjoy the fact that for one season in the past 8 or so years, we had a QB and team lay it all on the line. Respect much deserved.

And also I didn't post a link to an editorial where someone who works for NFL Network was just pondering how it would make sense for the Chiefs to cut Foles.  Clearly the word is getting out there that the Chiefs will be getting rid of Foles.

It's not a baseless opinion such as you thinking Foles is not a garbage QB.  It is something that he is hearing likely through the Chiefs organization or agent or others directly involved.

Foles has to be one of the unluckiest players I have ever seen. He is definitely capable, rifle arm, good intelligence, he has been cursed by having to play for idiots at coaches. Like one of the above posters said with the right supporting cast he will get the job done. Wouldn't be surprised if Washington signs him since Cousins might no longer be there.
