    Foles was outstanding in every way. The guy made great throws all night. I love the way Pederson kept attacking until his D could get a turnover.

    I do not think he is worse, but get ready for the T-hill lovers to invade this thread.

    What's their problem? Foles will either stay as their back up until his contract runs out next season or be traded. Either way he's going to make a crapload of money

    Foles is 10X better than Tannehill. I think the question you are asking is if we should go trade for him? Well, Foles flourished in aggressive offenses under Kelly and Pederson. Is Gase aggressive? No? So Tannehill is the perfect qb for the Phins. The coach and qb always reflect the team.

    What stood out to me was the amount of time he had to throw... Both teams actually...

    He has the best oline in the game. Pats didn’t touch him all night. Let’s see what RT does with that oline. I also loved the playcalling and aggressiveness. Hope Gase was paying attention.

    Before the injury I would have given the nod to Tannehill because of his speed. I’ll reserve judgment until I see how the knee heels. If they are both pocket passers I’m taking Foles all day. But I do agree that OL play like Philly has makes life so easy on a QB.

    Yes, They was pretty much just sitting back all game. Tannehill usually running around trying to make a play. Foles is better with a good O line, but not better with mediocre o line. We still rebuilding o line since 2005. Hopefully we get it done by year 2023.

    Don't worry it was inevitable. I was really expecting a 'who has better sideline emotion Wentz or Tannehill?' thread or something along those lines.

    So now we're asked to compare the Superbowl MVP, playing on the most complete team in the NFL, less than 12 hours from his greatest game in football history, to our starting QB who hasn't started a game since 2016 due to a knee injury?

    Makes sense. Why don't we just compare Tannehill to 2012 Joe Flaco while we're at it.

    Anything that doesn’t look currently favorable to tannehill and in this case completely due to injury is fair game don’t ya know

    Nope. I just think Pederson is better than Gase.
    But right now Pederson is better than pretty much everybody so I wouldn’t take that too hard.

    Vaitai is only in there cause Peters was hurt during the season...again, or they all would have been in the 80+ range.

    Maybe Tannenbaum can trade them Tunsil for a bag of pretzels since we had a big hand in building their team for them. Why stop?

    What a great problem to have, two good QB on your roster. The Eagles could trade him for a first round pick this year and acquire even more ammunition for another run at the SB next year.

    Foles > Cutler and I’m 100% sure of that

    Foles made a really nice play on that 4th down on their last TD drive. He was in trouble and bought enough time to get it to Ertz. That kind of stuff impressed me. He seems to slide and move around the pocket better than Ryan to be honest.

    How can 1 single game or even 1 single season convince so many people. Football, like the music industry has so many 1 hit wonders, it doesn't make sense. Could Foles be better than Tannehill? sure why not just like we could win the superbowl next year no matter how small, its a chance.

    Is Foles better than Tannehill right now? No, just like Larry Brown wasn't anywhere near as good as Deion Sanders, Dexter Jackson wasn't the best defensive player on the 2002 Bucs, Rob Johnson and Derek Anderson were not better than 32 other QB's despite their 1 game and 1 season performance, and M Night Shymanlan was not the next Spielberg.

    A couple of years again no one here wanted Foles on this team. Now he's the next Brady.

    There was a thread back in August that asked “If Tannehill is out for the season, who do you want as a starter?” Nick Foles got four votes. One of them was mine along with a couple comments in the thread as to why. Go check it out and see who wanted who and what they said about Foles then, because a couple of people were dead wrong. Matt Moore got 101 votes and Colin Kaepernick got 83 for comparison.

    Do you think the Eagles go to the SB if Foles starts for the whole season?

    Foles is in the perfect system for his skill set. He’s been successful in that system for quite sometime. His only downfall was after he was traded by Philly and out of the Offense Philly runs. Not sure Foles would be as good under Gase and have no clue how Tannehill would be under Pederson. But Foles is now a Super Bowl MVP and Champ, something Tannehill has yet to achieve.

    Pederson has been in Philly 2 years. They've only been running his offense for that time. Foles skill set had to be adjusted to during their bye week.

    Ryan Tannehill loses games to Geno Smith and Thad Lewis. Foles just outdueled the goat in the superbowl and took home the MVP.

    Not trying to start crap here but Foles did have that incredible season as well. I honestly don’t know if he’s good or not.

    He's all over the place... here's his ratings from season to season: 79-119-81-69-105-79. I'm not trying to make a detailed argument one way or another here... just what the 30 000 foot view looks like....
