The Raiders learned the hard way that even though Jeff Hostetler came in as a backup and won a SB, he wasn’t a starting caliber  NFL QB. 

Foles did great stepping up last season and taking control, but I agree with you completely. Lower tier starter who will probably get a decent deal as a FA, but likely won’t live up to it

Hostetler had 23 TD passes in 28 career starts as a Giant.

  • Foles had 29 in 2013 alone.

Hostetler had 170 yards passing per game in his SB run

  • Foles had 324 yards passing per game

Hostetler won in the playoffs with the best defense

  • Foles BEAT the best defense in the playoffs 2 years in a row

Hostetler game-managed a Super Bowl against choke artist Jim Kelly

  • Foles out-dueled the greatest QB in NFL History to win his Super Bowl

 

The reason that people are so split on Foles is because a lot of them are stupid and ignorant.

Not sure Hostetler is a good comparison, though he's a natural one to use since he was a backup who won the Super Bowl. I'm old enough that I watched a fair amount of his career, but not really enough to say if his talent level was on par with Nick's and a statistical comparison of the two isn't really possible, since they played in different eras. But my memory of Hostetler is that he was an 'ok' QB who never really impressed me with anything he did, other than coming off the bench and winning the Super Bowl, and my memory of Super Bowl XXV is more about 'Wide Right' than of anything that Hostetler did. I'm sure your memory of that Super Bowl is stronger than mine, was it a Hostetler 'win' or was it more about the Giants defense coupled with 'wide right' and competent QB play by Hostetler?

He actually had 27 in 2013. 27 TDs and 2 INTs... and that was in only 10 games. He threw 317 passes and had an 8.5% TD rate and a 0.6% INT rate that year... just insane.

My guess is that he had two touchdown passes against the Saints in the playoffs that season, which would account for the 29.

That would be right...and I figured he was including them in his post.

Brady wins SB and retires to a lifetime of frivolity.  Darth Belichick turns Foles to the dark side.  Patriots win more SBs.  Could happen.

Brady has said he wants to play until he's 45.  The "Tom vs. Time" thing will only become bigger if he continues to play.

Brady is def playing next year, he wants to break all of Manning's records, which he can with ease next year.

I would say it depends on if he wins the SB or not but this is Brady. I think most players would want to go out on top and he knows he's coming towards the end of his career and I think has regressed this year... But this is Brady so regardless of the outcome yeah I think he is back for another year.

Do you think that would change peoples opinion of him ??  For me it would not, I realize this is a business, that is why I also have no issue with possibly tagging him and acquiring assets for him.  I wonder if the Foles fan boys that are more worried about feelings than what is best for business would feel stabbed in the back if Nick goes to a division rival, proving it is a business, and at the end of the day there really is only loyalty to yourself.

Not mine. I think he could do well there. Having said that if he did end up in NY I will hope most of the Giants fans in this thread were right and he ends up a low level starter for them and they continue to suck. 

And if he did go there and fail I will still love what he did while here.

If I had my choice, here’s how I would go about filling the QB position (rank order). 

1. Cut Eli, sign Foles and use the #1 pick on the best OL or DL available. 

2. Keep Eli and use the #1 pick on the best OL or DL available. Wait til next year to draft a QB. 

3. Draft the best QB available at #6 (assumes one of the consensus top 3 QBs are still on the board). Have him compete in camp and sit behind Eli for a year...or cut Eli if the new guy looks promising. 

4. Trade down a few slots and draft the best QB available. 

5. Trade up a few slots and draft the best QB available. I prefer not to give up additional assists for any QB in this years draft.

Wild card for Nick Foles? 

Carolina. If they sit Cam Newton for 2019 like the Colts did with Andrew Luck, then adding a quarterback like Nick Foles could boost their chances of remaining competitive while their star quarterback is out. It could even be another opportunity for Nick to have another run to the play offs because the Panthers did start the season well before going on that bad run. Only issue is I'm not sure how well they are placed cap wise to make a move.

Of the ones listed in this poll, I think the Dolphins could be a potential option for him. The impression I got from Flores is that he wants his team to compete. They have a solid group of offensive skill players and with a revamped OL, they could be well set for a quarterback like Nick to do well. He likes to chuck deep and they've Stills and Wilson to handle those duties. Obviously defense is a big question mark, but Flores is smart and with the right moves they could be a solid unit. Ok it's a move that comes with risk, but it could also be a viable option because they do give their quarterbacks time. Ryan Tannehill arguably lasted longer than he should have done. 

I think Nick's decision could come down partly to which team is best suited to excel with him under center, but equally whether he values stability or going into what could be a one year gig. For instance Miami could commit to him long term, but somewhere like Washington might see him as a fill in for Smith or in Carolina he would be stepping in for Cam for a year. So I think teams like Miami, Jacksonville that have shown patience with their quarterbacks could be very appealing to him rather than places that are fill in gigs or haven't shown that same commitment (e.g. Denver).

Unfortunately I think he's going to the Giants. Just a feeling really... I think the weapons that offense has together with working with Shurmur again who Foles knows. All they need to do really is say they are going to continue to improve that OL.

I'd say your order is pretty much right, but I would probably swap 3 and 4.

That rank order is more about the options available than me thinking Foles is a top flight QB. What I should have added to #1 is 'draft a QB next year.' As of right now my options are a broken down Eli, an underwhelming Haskins, a player in Murray that can't decide between football and baseball and a bunch of guys that will be drafted too high. With those as my choices I'll take Foles and hope the Giants get him OL help because he's not putting the club on his back.

Yea I wouldn't have a problem with that.

The Giants are the clear cut team for Foles. They are primed and ready and honestly just some additions on the OL and DL will have them right in contention. Foles would be very comfortable with that team. Stability at the GM spot, the coaching spot, and ownership is solid.

The only thing I'd say is... Are we saying a HC going in to his second year with a team and the same with the GM is stability? Another poor year by the Giants and Shurmur is gone.

Valid point. I suppose I was looking at things from a character/integrity standpoint. I don't see Shurmur pulling any stunts like Jeff Fisher or Chip Kelly.

And Gettleman doesn't strike me as a guy who will quickly sour on Foles and try to load him off the team.

Ah yeah OK from that perspective I agree. I think if they took him on then they'd have every intention of giving him the chance to lead that team. But I guess that depends on how long they are around.
