Did not think this would happen.

Who would have bet that by mid November both Foles and Bradford would be on the bench?

One coach sees a 4-5 record and poor QB play as not acceptable and makes a change, despite financial commitments.

Another coach makes excuses.

Just watch Chip's faint praise of anything Sanchez does and how easy it is for him to assign blame to him while we went weeks of the 3rd worst QB in the league with nothing but praise.

Both our GM and our head coach have a vested interest in not accepting that the Bradford move failed.

I don't blame either Kelly for the attempt, but I do for the futility of persisting with it.

It is way to early to call the Bradford experiment a failure. I'm content to assume he won't be an elite-level QB but with an adequate set of WRs and solid O line I bet he could manage the game adequately. He probably could use a vocal veteran leader on O as well. That does not seem to be his strength either.

The big thing for me is that he is not throwing as many picks and his timing is improving with the receivers. I think that he was a little "off" with them causing the receivers to have to make great catches. They are not good enough to do that very often. Huff made one in the end zone on Sunday after dropping others in previous weeks.

I'm not ready to give up on Foles either. He may be nicked up. Maybe that is why coach Fisher mentioned that he expects Foles to play again.
