I doubt he goes anywhere. I know teams are desperate for a QB but why trade a high pick based off of 2 games?...

Foles has more than two good games.

But even accepting that premise, It's not so much that some teams are desperate. More so that some teams are stupid.

Several years back, the Raiders overpaid for Super Bowl MVPs two years in a row, and neither truly earned their contract.

Lord knows the Raiders of the past were a prime example (these days, Reggie McKenzie actually seems to know what he's doing) but they're not the only ones.

I won't be surprised if somebody makes them a good offer.

Well actually it's more than two games (even this year).  He had an outstanding TD to INT ratio the year he played for the Chipper during his first stint in Philly. 

Yes, I know but that is old news(2013). It was pretty much accepted that that season was an aberration and a product of a scheme and play calling. Clearly he can be successful in a limited span if used correctly but his numerous other starts has shown he is better suited as a back up.

 

Are we just going to gloss over how awful he looked until the Minnesota game??? Not many teams in the league has the personnel and scheme/willingness to adjust to compensate for Foles flaws as the Eagles.

Teams are stupid because they are desperate. We are in an era where teams will do whatever they can to get a "franchise QB", since that increases your odds for job security by a huge margin because a franchise QB can cover up sooo many flaws.

Therefore this leads to so many rash decisions by GMs/coaches, including over drafting raw QBs and signing QBs who show "flashes" of being great. For example: Foles, Matt Flynn, Matt Cassell.

GMs etc will swing for the fences because they know if the guy they choose pans out, they will probably have a job for 5-10+ years.

Well a lot of those desperate teams will grab a quarterback that did awesome in another system and try to make them fit their system. That usually ends in failure. The only way it would work if you bring that quarterback to your team and you actually have the same type of system

 If Foles for example went to Minnesota he would do awesome, virtually the same type of offense and very close to the same type of play calls 

If Foles went to Denver I’m sure he would be fine also. 

Some of the other teams that need quarterbacks would not be able to adjust to him and don’t run a system he’s good in.
