    What Iíve seen this season is really poor performances on 3rd down on top of no down the field throwing. Seemed like foles was converting more consistently on 3rd down

    And weíve had a lot of close games, itís all hypothetical but maybe just those inches, those extra first downs woulda made the difference
    Of the defense making stops and not blowing multiple double digit 4th qtr leads. Or a ball deflecting down and not up, Ajayi not fumbling inside the 5, every CB on the roster and beyond getting hurt. I mean, we can nitpick Wentz but our record isnít only indicative of him. Not saying thatís your claim, but so much more out of his control.

    One thing that I hate is happening right now is people assuming Wentz hasn't played good at all this season. Crazy.

    That being said, if BDN does the impossible, this is a different conversation we're having. Foles is just 29 and would theoretically have 5 to 7 years left given the state of the NFL. He wouldn't demand a big contract either. If he wins a second one, I'm in the camp of seeing what you could get for Wentz (to an AFC team).

    I doubt we repeat though. Wentz will be here.
    Itís weird.

    I donít think Foles would be great over a full season but in short spurts he could be, and has shown to be, money. Nothing to back it just that feeling

    You're not wrong tbh. Still a small sample size though. I'd love to be wrong though and nick foles lead the eagles to another superbowl. Lmao, that'd be bad ***.. I'd actually like foles more than wentz in that scenario

    He has played good, just not as good as last year. Last stand is 100% correct tho, he hasn't been as consistent converting those 3rd downs but for me, I think it also has a lot to do with play calling.. Dougie P has had some weird *** play calls that puts the eagles in 3rd and long quite a bit. That's hard for a quarterback to convert on a consistent basis

    Foles is the guy this year because I don't believe Carson will get fully healthy at any point for the rest of the season/playoffs. Once 2019 hits its Carsons team and Foles will be gone.

    Agree. However only if he is 100% healthy.
