  1. Nice post forevereagles!!! ☺ 

    Dolores Guyer ·

    The false comception that he gets a FULL week of practice makes me laugh. He gets 3 days. Wed,Thurs ,Fri. That is hardly enough time in such a short period of time to develop a chemistry with guys he has never thown to before when he was here. Outside of Celek and Ertz and that was 4 seasons ago. He was put into a dificult spot with only 2 games left of the season before the post season starts. Unlike 2013 when he had 10 games of the season to get acclimated to the system and the players surpporting him.

    EVERYONE on offense in last weeks game played badly. The recievers couldn't get off pr
    ess coverage. The O line had penalty's that cost them yardage that moved the chains. One TD was nullified due to a holding penalty. But because Foles is the QB he gets all the blame. Funny how the week before he had 4 TD's but all anyone focused on was how poorly the defense played. Nary a comment about how well Nick played in that game.

    I recall Wentz having a few similar type games as Foles had last week.Yet no one was doubting him. I guess just being more mobile these days makes all the difference to this fan base whether they like you or not. Because that is the only difference between the two.

    To the poster who says Foles can't read a defense you don't throw 4 TD's in a game and not be able to read a defense.

    I don't doubt for one second that the Raiders remembered that 7 TD performance by Nick and made and all out effort to keep that from happening again. This time it was in an open air stadium in frigid winter weather. So the combined elements was pretty stacked against that happening a second time.
    I have no problem with people being doubtful because one never knows how a game will develop. But I have seen Nick come through when backed against the wall, many times in games. I believe he is capable of bringing this team deep into the play offs. But he sure has to have the support of the fan base behind him and the boos that he got last week sure wasn't an indication to me that they are.

    OFFICIAL: Nick Foles 2017 option not picked up by Chiefs

    Bradford didn't get that pass? You sir, must have selective memory. Or selective reading habits....possibly both. There were many Eagle's fans posting who defended Bradford's time with the Rams. Just as many did when he was playing badly here with the Eagles. Using his prior recovery as an excuse for his poor play. Yet these very fans who like to trash Foles refuse to accept that he was NOT a 1st rd pick , but a MID 3RD ROUND PICK (88 over all).Who's expectations were not of the same level as that of Bradford ( or any 1st rd pick) .But the kind of trashing that gets directed at him, one would have thought him to be a 1st rd bust! . RTK just has a personal dislike toward the guy. He has hated him from the minute he took over for Vick. Has held a grudge ever since. I would imagine some of the dislike via the Giant's fans . Might stem from the fact that he seemed to play well against you guys for the most part.

    My point was that until a player ( picked that high) proves they are not capable of going beyond a certain point,he is allotted every opportunity to succeed. Those who were bemoaning Dmac, did so only after he failed to advance beyond the division title, each time (until the season we had TO) which was never entirely his fault. There will always be fans who want someone else,that's just how some people tick.

    I think they fail to remember that Carson was a 1st rd pick of the Eagles. Vick was not! Therein lies the difference . Carson will be allowed to struggle just because of that fact. So they have nothing to fear. If Nick should have to step in for a game or two, it will still be Carson's team when he is able to return. That is what being drafted in the first round and at #2 affords you.

    I doubt that Foles is overly concerned about the amount of money he is offered. If that was the case he wouldn't have opted out of several million from his Rams contract , to secure his release. Also remember he comes from money. I think he just wants some stability with a team. Even if he has resigned himself to it being in a back up role.

    He was the back up that season too. Remember Vick was the starter and went out with a concussion.

    I think that something up his sleeve is in getting Alshon Jeffery . Just posted on the home page.

    Except the Eagles missed out on that memo ( Daniel is getting more than that). Funny thing is, I see a lot of Foles in Wentz. Just that Wentz has the speed factor, that Nick lacked. That makes him more valuable in today's NFL QB's criteria to owners and coaches. They both are comparable in size and build.

    Nick is a victim of their cap situation. They are worse off than we are ... like 3 mil plus under the cap. I doubt they would have declined to pick up the option had they more cap space.Cause he didn't lose them the two games that he was in at QB for them. That is the hope of the back up QB, that teams rely on, when their starter goes down. I don't suppose it is impossible for them to offer him a new contract. Whatever happens I wish him the best.

    First off , Foles asked for his release. He gave up a lot of money owed him to obtain it. Secondly Keenum was Fishers choice all along. Had even signed him before the trade of Foles to them. Anyone who watched and listened to that press conference when Foles was being introduced. Would have been hard pressed to glean an ounce of enthusiasm from Fisher regarding Foles. But he was elated about having gotten Keenum back. I will forever see that PC in my head. Nick I'm sure felt the lack of excitement for him too. How could you not? When you are belittled by the coach in introducing another Nick ( Farley) when the media is expecting Nick Foles? Who was an MVP of a Pro Bowl to come walking out and you get a DE introduced to the media instead. Fisher thought it was funny. I doubt that Foles did . But being the gentleman he was raised to be brushed it off. As for Foles' supporting cast in 2013... geez, isn't that what every QB hopes to have surrounding him to have success ? Isn't that what Eli has enjoyed much of his career? I remember how bad Eli was his first 3-4 seasons . But he was fortunate enough that the coaching staff had the patience to allow him to mature, as well as the upper management . To remain with the same team and for the most part the same coaches and players. To learn how to play the game at the NFL level. Throughout his career. . Something that Foles has not had the luxury of doing. Thus the reasons why the doubt about him still lingers for some of us. I need more than a couple of parsial seasons to have a more accurate evaluation of him.

    Other than Foles the Chiefs have no other QB behind Smith with game day experience. I personally don't see where any that are about to become F/A's are any better than Foles . The kid they drafted last season Kyle Logan has already been released and is with an AFL team. Aaron Murray who was also with them, is now with the Eagles. That leaves Tyler Bray and Foles. Tyler Bray is going on his third season but has yet to take a single snap in an NFL game that's meaningful. Andy isn't stupid, he knows what he has in Foles. He knows he can win games for you. He has done so, under some of the most negative situations any player (especially at QB) has been asked to perform. And he has won games at every place he has been. But all his haters want to focus on are his losses. I find it interesting that everywhere that Pat Shumar goes, Bradford winds up there as well. Coincidence ? Maybe , but something tells me it isn't. I wouldn't be at all shocked to learn that it was Shumar who initiciated the trade for Bradford when Bridgewater went down. The one thing Foles did wrong...he had a season for the ages. That no one before or since has had. Because the unreasonable among us, wanted him to do so, they now call him a bad QB.

    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.

    It is nothing more than speculation and a whole lot of wishful thinking by some anti Foles people on these boards. RTK being the leader of the clan. I wouldn't be surprised if Nick agreed to restructure his contract just to remain with the Chief's. That Andy just hired Mike Kafka to be an assistant to the Quality Control coach tells me that he isn't as quick to give up on former players he had as quickly as some of you fans are.
