PFT – Eagles coach Andy Reid thinks rookie quarterback Nick Foles is going to be a valuable commodity in Philadelphia some day. The only question is whether that will be on the field in an Eagles uniform, or in a trade. Foles has been working with the No. 2 offense while Michael Vick’s primary backup, Mike Kafka, is out with a broken hand. Reid said he likes what he sees from the third-round draft pick. “I think what you look at with any rookie is, are they getting better every day?” Reid said. “He seems to be doing that and is more comfortable. We’ve got a load of plays in for him and he’s able to recite those properly. Now it is just making sure he’s got everybody down and that comes with reps but I would tell you we knew he was smart coming in and he hasn’t disappointed us in that area. He’s a pretty sharp kid, very diligent, works hard, and all of those things.”
Some team out there is going to get hoodwinked, bamboozled, and/or run amok in a trade with the Birds in the coming years. It may not happen this season or even next, but as certain as you are that Andy Reid’s sweat smells like hot dog water you can believe that the Eagles with ship Foles out to some scrub city team for a King’s ransom.
Right now I got him in AJ Feeley territory. Even if Nick was drafted in the third round not even 4 months ago, his training camp and preseason debut combined with the Andy Reid hype machine should be enough to move his value up a round. Keep it up, Andy. Maybe one of these days we’ll actually draft another QB for ourselves.
