    IMO Franchise Tags players should not be allowed to be traded. Isnt exact the opposite of what the franchise tag is all about, securing the player for a season while you negotiate a long term deal?

    So you don't think basketball should have sign and trades?

  • Fubarfighter  (Feb 7, 2019))

    I don't think Foles is a facade of a nice guy. He's the real deal. It's not inconceivable that he would stay with Philly in a backup role--for the identical reasons that you mention. He likes the team and the area and it's mutual. The agents and lawyers might not relish such a scenario, but not everyone is solely motivated by money. If Wentz proves to be durable, Foles is always an attractive trade--particularly mid season, when someone loses a good QB, finding themselves in a trick bag. Just ha...

    He's a christian mope.

  • Kevin Burke  (Feb 11, 2019))

    Chris Simms resembles Roger Goodell a bit anyone else see that?

  • john boone  (Feb 10, 2019))

    it would be a rotten thing to do to nick foles after how much he has done for philly , if nick wants to leave then ok find the best deal for him , if not , their is no need to get rid of him , I would say if the eagles treat foles well it will not only show class , but intrinsic value to being a eagle in the first place , it nicks decision I think !!

    Eagles messed up by letting Nick walk and keeping Wentz.

    *gets owned with logical statement"Did you just say penny penching?"

  • Mike James  (Feb 10, 2019))

    Foles is better, why don’t they understand this? Just because they gave up insane amount to move up to draft Wentz doesn’t mean sticking with him is the right choice.

  • jrad410  (Mar 7, 2019))

    Mike James and this time foles wont have the benefit of Wentz’s rookie qb contract to stack his team with talent to help him to win nor will he have another qb to get him the number 1 seed.

  • Mike James  (Mar 7, 2019))

    jrad410 Read what I’m writing and try to use your brain. Wentz’s window is closing with his 5th year approaching. He’s going to get PAID also. Much more than Foles likely, even though he couldn’t finish 2/3 years he’s played. This time the Birds won’t have Foles to save the season, as he has the last two years.

  • dsourn  (Feb 9, 2019))

    I feel like the Eagles are in a love triangle, Wentz is the wife while Foles is the mistress whom fulfills their needs

  • natskis  (Feb 18, 2019))

    Mistress that brings the hardware...

  • Bryant Kapono  (Feb 12, 2019))

    Sums it up perfectly

  • Scott Mayfield  (Feb 9, 2019))

    The Eagles should trade Wentz for draft picks and see how Foles plays out,

    trade Carson..draft Kyler...
