You're still on this train? Big Dick Nick Foles is no joke. Stop acting like he's Dan Orlovsky.

Then why did he flame out after getting that big contract after his 27/2 season ? He almost retired lol...I never said he was Orlovsky lol. But there is a reason only 3 back up qb's have won super bowls. Maybe Butler could have made a play because good old NF was throwing dimes into tight windows. Would you pay him big bucks to be your starting qb?

You have to understand the Eagles have a great offense. It's no different than when Cassel won 10 games why Brady was hurt.

Foles and Wentz have nearly identical career stats. Would you still be having the same panic attack if Wentz was playing?

And in reference to why he 'flamed out' in St Louis, just take a look at that roster. You're smarter than that. Tavon Austin was his #1 guy. Give me a break.

rumors are out that Butler missed curfew, had weed on him when he showed up to the hotel and then got into it with coaches about it.

I am giving you a break . He is not that good. Agree to disagree . His coach out coached Bill and Matt. There is a reason he is not a starter in the nfl.

You think Stafford is a good QB, eh? What if he was in Cleveland with them? Sometimes it's the teams that make you look good and sometimes they make you look bad. I don't know if Foles is a quality QB or not but during the past few weeks vs quality teams he sure looked the part.

No doubt. We might have lost our chance when we got rid of this guy..
