If Wentz were still playing I'd expect them to be competitive in all games. Winning an losing in the post season is much more than just one player, coaching is probably at least tied with the most important. Pederson has a very good defense and an experienced DC to lean on. Forcing a pass happy game plan, even with Wentz would be stupid IMO but especially with Foles.

I think Foles shit showings the past few games are as much on Pederson as they are on the QB. Pederson has to see he's struggling and help him the same way he should with a less experienced QB. Let him get confidence and a rhythm with running and short, WCO passes before he opens it up. Give him protection so he doesn't get happy feet.

If Pederson protects his QB with the game plan the team still has a chance to win it all. My expectations aren't on your poll (like most polls these days it seems) because I expect Pederson to adjust to what he has and not be so anal with "next man up" protocol.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.

Foles stinks. We all knew it, we just hoped for better.

Maybe you are right, but how do you explain his occasional impressive performances, including the recent NYG game?

If the Eagles' offense generates >16 points in the playoff game and Foles is not terrible I'm confident he will have a #2 job next year.

I don't think Foles is a bad QB, I just don't think he's had enough work to be effective right now. He should be starting somewhere in the NFL for sure. He's not a HOFer (other than that one magical season) but he's good enough to start.

1: His 27-2 season was statistically inflated by Chip Kelly's uptempo offense. It caught the league off guard. Our 'skill players' all benefited from that.
2: NYG didn't plan for Foles. If you were to review that game you'd notice many mishaps that we were fortunate didn't negatively impact us.

I read somewhere that we could save in the area of 5mil by getting rid of him this off season.

I don't see it. In his last season as a starter, he was ranked the worst:

2015

He was also on a shit team. I don't believe he's as bad as that nor is he as good as his best season. He's somewhere in between, which is better than many QBs in the NFL.

According to Over The Cap they would save $2.2 mil.
