Eagles Trading Foles For A Shot At Johnny Manziel?

Of course not. I have been wrong before when I wrote about former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s trade. I missed that one by a mile. But I don’t think I am wrong on this one. A week ago, Peter King posted an article discussing several topics. One of which discussed a rumor that the Eagles were thinking of trading their Pro-Bowl quarterback in an attempt to get quarterback Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft on Thursday.

It’s not the craziest thing I’ve heard but it’s up there. Why would Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly trade away one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL for an unknown, untested and unproven quarterback. Besides, Manziel is short and slight. He’s not six feet tall which makes it hard for him to see over the offensive line. Who cares if he is mobile? NFL linebackers eat small quarterbacks like Manizel for a living.

This got me to thinking though. Purely hypothetical but if you had the chance to trade Nick Foles for any quarterback, would you? If so, tell us in the comments below.

Here is today’s poll question. 

Would you trade quarterback Nick Foles for any quarterback in the league?

    Peter King never said anything about Foles being traded he just said there was a rumor that the Eagles might be looking to trade up to get Manziel, Nick Foles was never mentioned. Also, as great as Foles played last year, calling him “one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL” is a huge stretch at this point.

    Nick Files for Aaron Rodgers……um, OK!

  • Blair M

    Foles. Stupid autocorrect!

  • Alex

    Rodgers, Wilson… that’s about it. probably only wilson cause wilson’s the only one who’s young still.

  • Aussie Eagle

    Foles for Luck is a no brainer

  • #MiamiHeatWinIn6

    So he can throw 3 or 4 picks in a playoff game? No thanks.

  • Glennjo

    I disagree, when you call someone “one of the best in the NFL” usually you’re speaking of the best 3-5 at their position. It’s completely illegitimate to call someone one of the best based on one season let alone 10 games. He could have said he was statistically one of the best last season but calling him one of the best QB’s in the league is very premature. To be considered one of the best you have to do it consistently for a number of years.

  • Glennjo

    You might as well do that now because if that’s even a consideration for you then you’re not a true Eagles fan. They could trade every player that I like and I would still be an Eagles fan. I’m from Philly so it would be corny to ever root for any team other than the Eagles.

  • Charles Smith

    I’m a eagles fan from Louisiana does that make me corny?

  • Glennjo

    That depends, have you ever lived in or near Philly? If not then the answer is yes. If you’ve never lived in Philadelphia why would you be a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles? Anyone who lives someplace that has no team in the area gets a pass. If you’re from Louisiana you should probably be a Saints fan.

  • Glennjo

    Just to be clear I’m not saying people who root for out of town teams are corny people, just corny sports fans.

  • Charles Smith

    How is that corny? I’m the biggest eagles fan ever and not even from Philly. I hate the saints and their bandwagon fans. You should be happy that they have fans of the team outside of one area you sound stupid.

  • Glennjo

    The whole purpose of professional sports franchises is to represent their city. What legitimate reason could you have for being an Eagles fan? Did you just pick a team out of thin air? I just don’t understand the logic behind rooting for a team that represents a place that you have no connection to.

  • Charles Smith

    I have no connection to new Orleans. I’m from baton rouge. So I shouldn’t have a team at all right.

  • Glennjo

    No, I said anyone who’s from a place that doesn’t have a pro team gets a pass so you’re good. I still don’t get why you picked the Eagles out of 32 teams you could have chosen, just curious?

  • Glennjo

    And are you also a Phillies and Sixers fan?

  • trinity

    Yeah, for plenty of quarterbacks actually. Eliminate the 4 elite. They are a million times better than foles, but we’re talking about the future. I would take wilson, luck, kaepernick, a healthy RG3, cam newton, and Matt Ryan over Nick foles.

  • trinity

    …….are you for real? Those are the only 2 quarterbacks in the league you would take over Nick foles?

  • Charles Smith

    Because of McNabb when I was little and no I don’t care for baseball and I like the 76ers and basketball but football is really my favorite sport. In basketball I really just pull for certain players.
