The team will be destroyed trying to find a QB that fits into Chip's system rather than trying to build a strong defensive unit that can compete at the highest level.

How far into the crapper will we go before we realize that it isn't the missing QB. ITS THE SYSTEM.

Interesting fact from Bleeding Green:

Quote:
@BrandonGowton: Nick Foles threw 5 of his 10 interceptions in 2014 on plays where he wasn’t under pressure. 9 of 10 came when he wasn’t blitzed.
That seems like a QB problem, not a system problem, but then again, I don't have an anti-Chip shtick.

Foles is a good and smart QB. Are we just going to ignore the 2013 season? If Foles isn't good enough to run Chip's system and we go on a never ending search for the perfect QB to run it, I think it's fair to question that system.

Am I anti-chip? Yes. But you are ALL-IN with Chip. I see little difference if we are both at extremes.

I'm all in because we have to be. He's 20-12 as the coach and he's the football czar with all the power. No point in not being all in right now, cause he's not going anywhere. However, the difference is, I will admit when he's at fault (cutting DeSean, not using Polk at the goal etc) you don't admit when he's done something positive.

As far as Foles, 2013 is the only reason I'm ok with giving him next year to hopefully normalize. Without 2013, you look at last season and say "that's not the guy." If Foles tightens up his game, I believe he can succeed and that Chip can put him in the position to succeed. If Foles plays scared and stupid, it doesn't matter who the coach or what the system is.

That’s called pat back in a gayback.

Default this is the ultimate take on the team in 2015.

(emphasis is mine).

A LOT of folks were in on chip because rooting for the guy (any guy) is more fun than being a sally red ass. Many of those same folks were "ok, we'll see with Doug" as well. Maybe less excited (how could you be more), but still, ready to watch.

I love the system guy angle.

What system is he good at? Oh let me say it for you ... he’s good in the RPO system, Drama Queen.

Oh, he’s good in the RPO system. The RPO system in which the Eagles throw in about 8 plays and sometimes less in a game. The RPO system that can’t be fully utilized to the max with the QB as a running option too because Foles doesn’t run?

Doug The Great sprinkled in some plays that were comfortable for Foles. Plays that he had success with in the past.

Foles is an NFL QB. He excels with a good line in front of him.

I actually can’t believe I’m still defending Foles for what he is... a really good QB.

According to Slag, Pedey stole Chump's entire offense for Foles and Chump should get a ring.

Sure. And why boo a shitty Santa Claus if he's all you got.

Not using Polk on the goal line. The most unforgivable of sins.

funny thing is we probably would have made the playoffs in 2014 if chip had challenged a bad spot on an obvious first down by polk against arizona. wonder how things would have worked out then...
