Bears reportedly releasing Nick Foles


Recommended Posts

This is getting me to thing more and more that the Eagles' superbowl win was a fluke.  The QB who played during the season and got them there is gone, and has proven to be a nothing afterwards.  The QB who won the game for them is gone, and has proven to not be the solution for his next team.  And the coach who won it is gone, as well.  It was a fluke.  A very happy bright moment.  Fluke.

Maybe not a Fluke but more A Stroke of Luck.

And probably why Brady hates them all so much. I kinda like Foles as a person. But as a player, he just hasn’t lived up to that Super Bowl level again. 
 

The Eagles had great depth that year and caught lightning in a bottle. Not exactly a fluke, but very very lucky in their timing.

Would be a decent pickup if we could sign him for cheap. We need a backup and I don't think Elinger s it.

Agree.  We need a veteran backup that will give us a chance to win if we need him.  Fole’s familiarity with Reich and his offense makes a lot of sense.  I have very little confidence that a 6th rd pick in his second year can win us a game or two where they are all important.  Hate to see us caught with our pants down like when Luck retired.  We are contenders and can win our division. But we need good backups at every position.  Certainly at quarterback the most important position on any team.

It is a possible option if he is available if Ryan goes down or Sam struggles in the preseason. So far Sam has proved to be extremely knowledgeable of the playbook and has earned the chance show what he has.  Unless it would be a veteran minimum deal to stay in the league, I don’t think signing Foles would be a good use of resources we have left or justify restructuring contracts that take away future cap space. 
 

Really happy for his SB run.  That was an amazing accomplishment. He wasn’t able to do anything with the Jags or Bears...he won’t here either. We already tried an Eagles QB that played under Reich...I’m sure the Colts brass learned from that mistake.

Foles' rep continues to live on from that small little run he had. Got paid nicely by Jax at least.

Seems like every fanbase wants this guy every couple seasons.. Lol

When Nick Foles won that SB, Bill Belichick decided to get cute and thought he was the smartest man in the room by benching Malcolm Butler. Butler at that time was their 2nd best Corner (Gilmore and he ruled the roost). He was benched because he had a disagreement with DC Matt Patricia. Patricia ended up being a horrible head coach with the Lions and by benching Butler it more than likely cost the Pats a SB win.

 

Regarding Foles, no thanks. He has been washed up since 2019.

Foles gold. Pyrite.

Ehlinger still on his rookie contract and learning behind Ryan.

We're good.

We’re really not good.  If Ryan goes down we are in deep do do with Sam at quarterback. He has never won or played in an NFL game.  He was a 6th rd pick for a reason.

He's being released. That is all we need to know. 

A lot of football players get released all for different reasons.   I would have more confidence in him stepping in and winning a game than Sam right now.  All Sam has shown is that he can hold a clipboard.

If Ryan goes down then we have a nice shot at some talented QBs in the first round of next year’s draft.

Who cares about that.  I’m not talking about an extended absence.  I’m concerned about Ryan missing games this year and we need Sam to win them for us.  Did you forget our players and the entire organization are trying to win it this year?  That’s the focus.  But you’re thinking about a quarterback in next year’s draft.  I would much rather win the SB and have the 32nd pick.  I could care less about next year’s class.

The Colts just paid Jack Coan of Notre Dame (via Wisconsin) $60K as an UDFA and also have James Morgan from FIU who was drafted in the fourth round by the Jets last year. With Sam as well, I think we have enough QBs.

It's not about quantity, it's about quality. Not one you mentioned has ever started an NFL game and Elinger is the only one to throw a pass in the NFL and he's thrown for 9 yards.

Wow you guys need to calm down. I’m not looking to next year. I’m very happy with Matt Ryan. I’m simply saying if the worst happens, then it happens. Life goes on. If Ryan goes down there is no backup QB out there that’s going to win us a Super Bowl.

Tom Brady threw for over 500 yards.   The offense put up 33 points.   Not sure McDaniels can be blamed too much. 
 

Just sayin….

ballards qb picks have not been good


And all we spent on our picks was a 4 for Eason and a 6 for Ehlinger.  That’s it.  Big deal!  
 

Even the miss on Wentz only cost a 1 and a 3.   Teams are missing on first round quarterbacks where they traded up and spent two or more first round picks and two or more other picks.    In other words, we only spent pennies compared to other teams.  
 

You’re so busy hating on Ballard that you don’t realize you’re not making a good argument.

    • I was very much against our signing Wentz and vowed to turn a blind eye to the Colts last season… I think it lasted maybe 4 weeks lol. Not only did I watch the games, I also watched Hard Knocks.  I learned that I’m all talk, I can’t back it up. I’ll bleed blue forever. Go Colts! 
    • Brooks will need a year or two.  He's got a tweener type frame. He could be a package guy on the interior if we're trying to one gap the OC, but we've got better options. IMO, he'll end up a PS guy. Johnson could end up on the PS too.    Give Brooks a year or two in a good S&C program. If he can put on some weight and add strength, I'd like his chances at depth NT.
    • Agree in general. But a lot of reviews have called out his slender bottom half. I watched some of his film, and he really struggled at times, even with LBs. 
    • Curtis Brooks has the potential to be the steal of the Draft for Colts by Jaleel Grandberry   Sixth-round pick for the Indianapolis Colts, Curtis Brooks, was impressive in his final year in college and could be the steal of the entire Draft. The 2022 draft class for the Indianapolis Colts is highlighted by the impressive offensive selections of day two. The Colts started their draft by selecting Alec Pierce, Jelani Woods, and Bernhard Raimann. While all three were great picks, and necessary, it was a selection that Indianapolis made on day three that could be the steal of the Draft. In the sixth round of the Draft, with the 216th-overall pick, Indy used its second-to-last pick to select defensive tackle Curtis Brooks out of Cincinnati. Brooks wasn’t highly ranked in the class, he was the 17th defensive tackle taken, and the second by the Colts. However, he flashed some things in college that should have fans excited about his ceiling. Curtis Brooks could be promising for Colts Brooks is just 6-foot-2 and 285 pounds but he played with a lot of explosiveness in his five years at Cincinnati. In his final season, Brooks recorded 57 tackles, 12.5 for a loss, and 7.5 sacks. On his tape, he routinely showcases explosiveness, athleticism, and a high motor as he disrupts runs and gets after the quarterback on passing plays. In addition to his film and impressive advanced stats, Brooks recorded 33 reps on the bench press, had 35.5 vertical, a 4.9 40-yard dash, and graded well in all other athletic evaluation tests. Now, Brooks gets to join a loaded Colts defense as he adjusts his tools to the professional level. He’ll be surrounded by stars and will be able to learn from the Pro Bowler, DeForest Buckner, in addition to other Indianapolis veterans. Despite going in the sixth round, it wouldn’t be a shock if Brooks becomes a really good professional player. Between his tape and his numbers, he has a pretty high ceiling. Hopefully, the Colts will help him reach that ceiling   Data on Curtis Brooks (DT, Cincinnati) from PFF Pass Rush Win Rate: 19.3% (best in class) Run Defense Stop Rate: 13.1% (best) Pass Rush grade: 90.4 (best) True Pass Set grade: 92.3 (best) True Pass Set win rate: 37%!! (best) Run Defense grade: 69.9
