Nick Foles noticable got better as he had a few starts under his belt. Not to mention his arm and accuracy was awesome. Not a bad price to pay for a starter. Any thoughts? Hell, throw in Fitz as well......

Because they would never make that deal. Oh, and because he sucks.

"Eagles coach Chip Kelly said that he wanted to coach Foles, and Chiefs coach Andy Reid believed the Eagles liked Foles too much to deal him."

"It appears Reid is right. The Eagles reiterated to the Chiefs that Foles was not available at this time. That possibly could change in the coming weeks with the league year starting March 12. Either the Eagles are trying to gain leverage and not show their hand or they actually mean what they say."

How does he suck?? Wayyyy to early in his career to say he sucks...Btw I rather have foles then fitz nick foles has a strong arm and has  displayed good accuracy..which fitz neither has displayed....craptrashtrick has a unreal weak arm with outstanding accuracy that can only be compared to ryan leaf..

would love the foles idea for a third.......draft wr/lb with 1st/2nd round picks..    if foles doesn't look sharp then the Bridgewater/Manziel/Mccaron/Boyd/Aaron Murray draft will be upon us.    

would prefer Barkley or Geno but don't think that's gonna happen.   Gonna have to trade in front of Zona.

wow. Suprised you didn't bring your unhealthy live affair with Matt Barkley into this thread too. But of course you used your 12 year old tweet talk when posting and your unbelievable hatred for Fitz. Again, this thread isn't about Fitz and how bad he is. It's about Nick Foles. Regardless of Nick Foles' abilities and future as a starting WB in this league, it has nothing to do with Fitz. BTW, if its too early to say Nicl Foles sucks, then it's too early to say he's better than Fitz or has any kind of strong arm or accuracy. He's played in a handful of games at this point.

This reply does not mean anything regarding my opinion of Fitz in no way, shape or form. I personally think he's an average QB at best but would succeed in the right conditions on the right team with the right offense and coach. But that is not this te and I personally don't want him anywhere near this team anymore. That still doesn't mean I want Foles.

Why??? He had a decent year as a rookie in a passing offense ala Kolb but once these coaches get the book on him we'll see how he adjust. Let's NOT jump the gun too soon on this guy. Plus there's plenty of Foles type QB's in this draft IMO ie., Jones, Wilson and Glennon.

Because he is Trent Edwards. He isn't bad, makes some nice throws, occasionally has a great game but overall, hes an average qb that turns into a deer in the headlights when it gets tough. I hope he gets traded to KC and fades into obscurity

NFL radio reported today that the chiefs are trying to trade for him.  They apparently are probably not going to draft a QB with the first overall pick.  How anyone outside of the organization knows that I have no idea, but that is what is being reported.

it just seems to me that if he were really good, he would cost a lot more than a third. and if the eagles are willing to part with him for a third, seems safe to say we should have no part of that deal.

       why do I hate fitz? Cuz im sick and tired of watching him choke in close games either by throwing a pick or fumbling..want another reason why I hate fitz?  Sick and tired of seeing him miss fire wide open Wrs 5 yards down the field either by overthrowing them or underthrowing...want to know more reasons? Let me know theres a hell ton of more evidence why I hate fitz....now for nick foles...its too early to say that he has a strong arm or accuracy wtf???  you can tell if a Qb has a strong arm just by watching him throw a dam football....as for the accuracy issue...he has made throws in stride 10,20,30,40, even 50 yards down the field during his college career and the short period of starts he had last season with the eagles that shows his accuracy and touch...in where fitz has an unreal hard time even throwing the ball 10+ yards accurately..its embarrassing

As said above "because he sucks" You can draft a player much like him later in the draft

You have strange grammar.  Do you love Hot Pockets? Is that why you chose that name?

They want more than a 3rd and he's a risk ala Rob Johnson/Kolb. You have to be careful with backups like this as defense didn't really have a lot of film on them to gameplan. Same way some rookies look good their rookie years then become pedestrian when they defenses start looking to neutralize them.

I think the lads grammar shows his age. Not our generation slang-speak.

I have a feeling the Chiefs will give us more than a 3rd to make him their 2013 starter.
