    I don't love Foles but he's good with pro at least

    he also only has a year of starting. that will probably scare some people though because so was Mitch

    He has 2 years of starting. He started as a Freshman at Georgia. He lost his job in 2017 because he got hurt.

    He didn't play at all in 2018.

And in all honestly a 15 million dollar test year to see if he works out isnt that bad all things considered. But the follow the money bit. he is set to make 5 mil more than mitch this year. I mean you want to play follow the money game there was no way mitch was starting over Glennon either.

    Its going to be a comp. I personally hope mitch wins because of his upside. But if he doesn't step up its foles job.

    The second Mitch ****s up a simple RPO play in practice or doesn't diagnose a defense correctly, or isn't explaining his decisions or reads well enough to the coaching staff, he's toast. I do believe it will be a competition if he's in fact on the roster, but I do not believe he's going to have a lot of wriggle room. I believe they give him a lot of reps in the pre-season (more than Foles), and he needs to make the most of it. If he can't carve up pre-season defenses against backups, Foles will be the starter.

    That's how I'd play it at least. In the pre-season, I'd start Foles and have him go against the ones, but only sparingly. Then give Mitch a bunch of reps and see if you could notice any sign of improvement and mental understanding.

    I wonder what Nagy will do in preseason. He sat every friggin starter last preseason and got a lot of grief for it, especially for sitting Trubisky. If there is to be a legitimate competition at QB it will be interesting to see what happens in the preseason. I would at least hope there is some realization the the starters should get some preseason reps.

    I agree the leash will be very short and Mitch will see a bunch of preseason time.

    With potentially lacking im training camp. I would bet he would have to play the pre season.... basically just for reps sake.
