    While i agree this has been a down year for Tom he was still the league mvp last season and had one his best years. Of course age is a factor but I think we have to wait till next season before we can start saying he’s in decline.
    A better receiving core, a healthy tight end (Gronk) and maybe he will have a great your next year too. And who knows, he and his Patriots still have a chance to win the Super Bowl this year, and if that happens his entire season will be a great success yet again.

    Next year, our Bears play 6 teams still going in the playoffs. Playing at Denver won’t be easy either, especially with Fangio as their HC. Bears have the NFC East, AFC West, along with the Rams and Saints. Division rivals will surely mark their games with the Bears.

Plays were thrown out and others added in. Second, once Foles started feeling comfortable in the custom "Foles Offensive System," he confidence grew exponentially. Foles most likely would work best in a WC Offence style. So he has to find the right coach/fit.
    I heard a Caron Wentz Zealot say he would trade Foles next year even if Foles leads the Eagles to a 2nd consesecutive Super Bowl. Maybe they should trade Wentz?

    The San Diego Chargers chose youth over experience when they gave up on Drew Brees over Philip Rivers. Guess what? Drew Brees is a SB winning HOF QB. Rivers does not have that status.

    The Patriots chose Brady over Jimmy G and Jimmy G has done nothing to indicate the Patriots made a mistake.

    Foles IMO is the better option long-term. He reminds be of Brady. Leadership matters.

    Well, Carson Wentz clearly is the future of the Eagles (26) and Foles is only going to be valuable for the next season because of Free agency (if I understood correctly) and I think the Eagles would be better off with a good running back high in the draft rather than keeping Foles as a backup and not getting a good running back or having to pay a lot of money to get one.

    So if the option is one good relieve QB or a top RB, then I think the team is in a higher need of a great RB rather than keeping Foles for a huge amount of money on their roster.

    What a problem to have, eh? Two potential elite QBs on your team. Having said that, I say keep Wentz. Even if Foles pulls a rabbit out of his ass and magically helps the Eagles win another SB. My only concern with Wentz is that he seems injury-prone.

    As for Jimmy G, give the poor guy a chance. He was doing well early on until he got hurt.

    I agree, keep Wentz, trade Foles for a decent draft pick and/or a good running back and then trade that draft pick to pick up Le'veon Bell which would solve the need to really lean totally on the QB.

    A few points:

    The expectation is that Foles, thanks in part to his altered deal, will be a free agent. Here is why: The Eagles have a $20-million option for 2019, which they would only pick up if he's the starter (and Wentz should make a full recovery, so Foles won't start).

    Foles can buy back the option by paying $2 million. The team can also franchise him, theoretically. So almost certainly, he's free.
    Nick Foles expected to be a free agent after the season - NFL.com

    1. The only way the Eagles can keep Foles is if Wentz is not on the roster. They can't actually trade him unless they franchise tag him. I believe the best course of action is pick up Foles' option for $20 million and trade Wentz. The Eagles can get a lot for Wentz. I am thinking the Jaguars would trade Jalen Ramsey and their first round pick, which is in the top ten.

    I would guess, just looking at the NFL landscape, the Broncos, Dolphins, Giants, would give up their 2019, 2020, and 2021 first round pick.

    So you might argue you are slightly worse off at the QB but you gain a lot of assets to build the rest of your team.

    2. Le'veon Bell will likely be a free agent and sign with any team he wants. I would guess the Colts, Jets, Bucs, Raiders, and Eagles will be interested in his services.

    Jets to hire Adam Gase.

    Even though Mike McCarthy just about begged for the Jets job...

    Interesting.... Also interesting to see if McCarthy even gets a job now. Almost all of the HC vacancies are filled, and McCarthy was sitting around waiting on the Jets? Then they go with Gase?

    I believe he had said the Jets job was the only one that interested him, and otherwise he would be happy to sit out a year.

    I did not hear that he was willing to sit out a year.
