Default Can't Trade Foles

Need him to back up Wentz next season. Say he misses the first 4 games and for sake of argument they are against Minnesota, @Dallas, Atlanta and @Rams? Schedule could be front loaded for all they know.

Sure they can. But not for less than a first rounder.

Next man up is Sudfeld!! No worries, Dougie will coach him up.

If they trade Foles they will most certainly bring in a better back-up option. Tyrod Taylor perhaps?

agree with this.

But, I doubt anyone will pony that up when SF paid a 2 for Jimmy G.

Last I checked Jimmy G was entirely unproven and not the reigning Super Bowl MVp at the time of that trade.

but younger. also, teams will claim foles did it in eagles' system but may not be able to replicate that elsewhere based on his tenure away from philly.

I'd rather keep him unless it's a mid round 1. He's the best insurance policy in the league. you cannot have enough talent at QB.

yeah, jimmy g was a second round pick who looked great in 2016. nick foles is 3 years older with a lower ceiling, and may have shown enough for a lot of teams not to think he's a franchise QB. it wasn't that long ago that the browns spent a first on brandon weeden, so i'm not ruling anything out, but you really need to get your bias out of the way when talking about this.

good point. the fact that we were able to get a first for that guy 7 years into his career blows my mind.

lol. and the rams fleeced us into giving up foles and a 2nd for him. i don't think that teams have ever continually invested in an ordinary QB the way that they have in sam bradford.

Never has an NFL player earned so much money for doing so little as Sam I Am has.

Jamie Asher earned his money from Eagles more than Bradford did.

I think i misunderstand what you mean, otherwise you just said the super bowl mvp has a lower ceiling than jimmy garappolo. Celebratory euphoria on my part aside, that's not a good metaphor.

well, i know what i said sounds weird. but jimmy g looks like the type of QB who can elevate a franchise. make a team a contender for 10+ years. SB MVP is the best thing a QB can do, but i think there's a strong possibility that foles's next team will get saddled by a joe-flacco type contract.

Yeah I'm half messing with you. "Foundation upon which to build franchise for the long term" would have been a more apt metaphor.

Default Foles will be starting on Thurs night

Wentz is the Franchise and you don't push him out there before he's ready...BDN loves his role here and I'm sure his 7 mill isn't a bad payday considering how many endorsements he will get,,,Look out for the Chunky Commercials!

Next year he will still be a commodity. I just dont give a rats ass what we get for him. Give him a 3 year deal...Keep him.

Default Jimmy G was a gift from NE. Belichek wanted to keep him

... which is part of the reported discontent between Belichek, Brady and Kraft. One big reason he went to SF is that Belichek has a a lot of respect for Kyle Shanahan’s dad, who was an outspoken supporter of Belichek amidst the cheating scandles. Jimmy G was worth more than a second.

In truth, the Eagles would get a third or maybe a late second for Foles. Who knows, maybe a mid level player as a sweetener, too. Foles may have a contract, but he will be consulted about the team he would go to and the likeliness of signing a new deal, with contract parameters, etc.

Don’t forget, the supply/ demand balance of the QB market is not as good as it was 1-2 years ago,

I keep seeing jimmy g being compared with Foles given our situation. Stop. I would pick jimmy over Foles any day. Don’t get me wrong, I love BDN and always will, but have y’all even seen jimmy G play? The mans a franchise QB. The niners committed robbery on that one.
