Definitely not. I'm sure someone will offer a 2nd or 3rd round pick for Foles. But I think the Eagles will keep him since Wentz and Foles seem to have a good relationship and his presence won't cause a distraction.

I'd love to see him return as their backup, but if someone offers you a boat load of picks you almost have to make that move. And this being the NFL, I'd be shocked if someones not already calling them saying hey, whats it gonna take to get Foles.

Lets not forget, his first year as a starter, he was really really good. Then Chip Kelly started to dismantle the team around him and he regressed. Then Kelly shipped him off to the Rams who gave up on him before they even gave him a chance. At this point I don't think anyone has any idea what kind of QB Foles would be if given another chance as a starter. I know hes no where near Wentz talent wise, but hes also a Super Bowl MVP so, who knows.

They should call the Browns. I'm sure those idiots would overpay for him.

Wentz may not even be back by the start of the season. There is only one more year left on Foles' contract. No way they are trading him this year.

Sterratore. Everything else is implied.

He was, but I'm willing to forgive this even though I hate Brady and found it annoying. Commentators generally fawn over greatness. Kinda comes with the territory. But he was insufferable last night. Opining about how fresh the Eagles defense was in the 3rd quarter when the Patriots had about 450 yards already was absurd, and his takes on both of the Eagles supposedly controversial TD's were absolutely brutal. Especially the second one. Anybody who took a shot every time he said "RPO" would probably be dead right now.

Why is it so hard to find guys who aren't incredibly annoying to call the games?

Last positive thing I will say about the Eagles: huge, huge kudos to Doug Pederson for being so incredibly aggressive. Hopefully this knocks John Fox-esque shitty turtle ball out of the league forever. This was an incredible game for the advancement of how people play football.

I'm guessing the RPO thing is what Philly calls them, so, whomever does the game calls it, because I've heard that term a lot all season. So I'm guessing its just something they pick up in their meetings with the teams before the game.

right? MLB has a ton of good announce teams for TV and Radio (yet stupid Joe Buck still does the World Series)
but the NFL, man they just have a ton of horrible announcers on all the networks. ALMOST makes me miss the days of John Lennon and his boom whack and then he bam, replays.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/n ... 306471002/

#52 should have been - "How cool that Brian Dawkins, No. 20, was the headliner of the Canton class revealed before Super Bowl LII, featuring his long time team" Who cares that Ray Lewis wore #52 and it was S.B. 52?

I guess maybe there is such a thing as a reverse jinx. Sorry Pats fans. This one might be my fault. But I genuinely thought there was zero way they'd lose.

Of course I'd forgotten that Gene Steratore was calling the game.

Absolutely. Calculated risks are the way to go. Hope other teams/coaches follow suit.

Yep. Breaks my heart that Pederson isn't the Chiefs' Head Coach.

Local radio guys today were saying that Foles purportedly has a dick like a Belgian plow horse and has been anointed Big Dick Nick and Footlong Foles by other players. Too bad he's too Jesusy for it to matter.
