If Foles works 60 percent of the time all of the time I believe the Eagles have a chance.

Also note that Riccardo was at the game last night and we had no Fooles Gold posts.,
We froze our asses off. Not much action on that section and a bunch of raiders fans kept standing a few rows ahead. But a win is a win!

This.

Foles has to play with the WRs next week.

This is also a big reason why it’s silly to bring in another QB at this stage of the season. When comparing Keenum and Foles, Keenum acquired PT much earlier in the season.

At what point do you change the ingredients enough that the product just isn’t the same? Unfortunately, we’ve reached that point with the Eagles, IMO. Im still hoping to capture lighting in a bottle, though.

What’s the old adage—if a receiver can get his hands on it he should have caught it—Ertz dropped 2 in or near the end zone; Jeffrey dropped one at the 2; Agholor dove and caught an under thrown ball and then dropped it; and the offensive line got no push in the running game in the 2nd half and when they did, they took ghastly penalties. I’m not absolving Foles—there was at least twice where he could have scrambled for a first down and he threw it away instead; and his reads were slow. But I offense, he wasn’t the only problem. And the RBs need to just go down when they’re gang tackled. Ajayi should have never lost a fumble.

The keenum comparison isn't that far off...but it's also troubling a bit when talking about "clicking". Keenum really didn't click (string some good games together) till about his 8th start and then he went off (or 8 weeks of practice as the #1 qb).

Foles has had two games and will have three and then a bye. I'm hoping that's enough practice time to get some sort of rapport with alshon and the other receivers.
