    Tough break for Foles either way, IMO.

    He's a system guy, which is a term that gets thrown around in a derogatory way but all it really means is that he performs well when the offense is designed around his skillset (RPO). His insane accuracy numbers that one year skewed the perception like you can plug him in anywhere and have it work, but 1.) Jeff Fisher can ruin anybody's career 2.) NFL teams were moving away from "college style offenses", which is what he flourishes in.

    I think Foles' game has clearly matured from that point, as I noticed him going to a second or third read, buying time with his legs and using his eyes to throw off defenders. HOWEVER, I still think the only teams willing to pay what he deserves will be to much of a shit show to utilize him correctly, so he's either going to get a big payday and ride out another couple <50% seasons or he's going to sit on the bench for $6 million next year.

    Personally, I disagree with the consensus on this about the Eagles defaulting to Wentz. I mean, they probably will (owner's proclamation of 'losing their franchise quarterback' at the trophy ceremony seemed to confirm that) but I'd personally let them compete in camp and start whoever's better. Foles has shown he can win with that team, that coach, that system and do so at a high level. Wentz seems to be MORE of a plug-and-play style QB, and since they have him cheap for another 2-years, they can probably get a Jimmy G style trade (for more goodies, though) for him IF he's still on the bench near the end of year 2.

    I mean, Belichick is exactly the sort of guy who would potentially jeopardize his team's chances in a Super Bowl appearance to enforce team dicipline after a team rule violation, you know? This iis the guy who's cut guys for being late to practice, and it was kind of a joke in the local media that on our last snow day, the Pats all showed up for practice on time because there were no days off.

    Sean Payton does the same kind of shit and it's aggravating. Rumors Brandin Cooks complains after a we blew out the Rams that he didn't get the ball enough....poof off to the Pats. Rumors Jimmy Graham say he wants to be paid like a WR, poof off to seattle. Rumors Kenny Stills said something in the locker room Payton didn't like, poof off to the Dolphins. Media starts rumors Payton doesn't give Darren Sproles enough touches, poof off to philly.....goes on and on. Payton's ego is so big and he is such a smug jerk if he wasn't our coach I would hate him
