I'll just add that SF was the most overrated team in the league going into this season. I don't really see them giving away a top pick for any QB. They're still rebuilding around Garoppolo and he'll be ready to go next season.

What would I demand from San Fran for Foles? I would start with this squad and go from there!

I think we ask for a 1st this year or two 2nds. We then use our first and a 4th this year to get Bell from Pittsburgh.

Just don't think you can get a 1st for Foles but Howie has done some magic so who knows. If you get a second and a 4th or 5th I think you are doing okay. However, like the vast majority of America, all my football knowledge gets me a seat in front of the TV on Sunday.

I don't think that we can consider a trade can we ND? Not after what happened last year. He's already won one game for us this year too.

I think they stick with Bethard and bring in a FA to back up. If we got SF’s second round pick, I’d do the trade. I just don’t believe Foles commands high value. I’m thinking SF ends up drafting top 10. Maybe Howie could package a deal for a WR with a team that’s out of contention. As someone else said, I’m sitting on my recliner playing fantasy GM.

First - after last year, I would think they are going to hold onto Nick.

Second - remember we are going to be swimming in picks next year. We have an extra 2nd rounder from the Ravens because of moving back to take Goeddert. We will also most likely get 3 compensatory picks which gives us 11 picks next year.

And don't forget that we're going to need some cheap labor at some point too. You can't kick the can down the road forever can you? Maybe you can if you have the right software.

Howie has the right software.

They are projected to be $20MM over the cap for '19 now but remember that Foles cap hit stands at over $20MM for next season.

We'll save $7MM by cutting Jernigan. $8MM if we let Peters go/retires. $7MM if Bennett is gone. So there is a lot to work with plus I'm sure Howie has some restructuring plans.

They've been cutting Peters for the last 5 years or more lol. I'll bet that he's back again next season and at the same salary.
