Default Is Nick Foles done with Eagles?

Nick Foles' immediate future with the Eagles is on hold after the quarterback suffered a broken collarbone Sunday in Houston.

According to people with knowledge of the Eagles' plans, Foles' long-term future was in doubt even before the injury.

Foles' play during the first half of this 2014 season in stark contrast to his Pro Bowl season of 2013 has "soured'' some in the organization, including general manager Howie Roseman, according to sources.

In 10 starts in 2013 Foles threw 27 touchdown passes to just two interceptions, completed 64 percent of his passes and had a league-high quarterback rating of 119.2. This season, in eight starts Foles has thrown 13 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions and has a quarterback rating of 81.9.

"I think Howie is looking at quarterbacks,'' a league source told NJ.com. "He's kind of soured on Foles, and I don't think he's alone. The organization isn't sold that he's the guy going forward.''

Never a good sign when someone in pro football says, "We're better off with Sanchez."

Where have a heard a story like this before? A QB that had a great year, to then go on to have a mediocre year and then get hurt, then goes on to set the world on fire and win a Superbowl. Who is that guy who plays for the Saints?

I sure would take Foles.

Seems like the Mayans had some sort of warning about this.

Default Re: Is Nick Foles done with Eagles?

Foles isn't done but he's also more the QB we saw this year than what we saw last year. He holds the ball too long and tends to force things when pressured. It was okay last year because Philly had a top 3 OL in the league. This year their OL has been decimated by injury and he's had to play without a ton of clean pockets and has been faced with a lot of pressure.

Look at the difference between him and a guy like Luck (who's OL is just as bad). The decision making and poise under pressure is so drastic.

Also he has started for the first time full time in his career. So he wasn't use to that as well. But still don't say that the Eagles are ready to give up on him!

now, I know stats can be misleading, and I haven't watched the guy enough to have a proper opinion... but that doesn't look reassuring

Walter Football Rumors

Quote:
If the Eagles decide to target a quarterback early in the draft, they could have a valuable trade commodity in signal-caller Nick Foles. The Texans and Titans would both have an interest in Foles if he were made available. If Peyton Manning decides to retire, the Broncos would also be a team that would look into acquiring Foles. Denver liked Foles when it drafted Brock Osweiler. If the Eagles wanted to trade up for Marcus Mariota, they could deal Foles to get more ammo with picks to move up, or include Foles in the package.

What's his value to us? 2nd? 3rd? Or 2 seconds and flipping 1st picks again?

They liked Foles, but drafted Osweiler??

Was Rick Smith with the Broncos at the time?

Foles is also on the last year of his contract. I doubt he'll get any real money on an extension & would want to use this year to reclaim some of the value he accumulated in 2013. So I don't know how open he'll be to signing a new deal, which is going to make it hard for any team to give up anything of substance to get him. Just like Mallett.

I seriously doubt the Texans, Titans, or the Broncos are interested in acquiring Nick Foles.

I could see the Titans trading for him on the condition that he sign an extension. That would make them better and buy them some time with Mettenberger.
