Yeah Jeremy didn't look at the contract when he made this clickbait thread.

 

Teams will be willing to give Foles 20-25 million per year.  Teams will offer 1st round picks.  Honestly, the Eagles might be smarter to trade Wentz and grab a couple 1st's for him.  Terrible thread is terrible, but par for the course here lately. 

So “good” threads are dismal talk,.. doomsday, Panthers suck, Tepper sucks, Cams in a wheel chair, our cap space is negative numbers, and the only quarterback we can start with going forward is RG3,...

that would be a great thread.

good lord. 

We have 2 factions— solutions, hope, and possibilities,... and doomsday, no solutions, no originality masked by trolling and bashing others— a 3rd if you count the folks that are not here for football and spend time on a football board arguing about racism and social justice.

que the “Mad World” soundtrack— my preference is American Idol version over the REM version. Ha

For a mid round draft pick? I'd say yes.

interesting take there and jumping to some fun conclusions.  This example, of a thread that would never happen that various readers and idiots are going to jump into and think is a possibility?  Yeah, not a good thread.

The doomsday, Panthers suck, Tepper sucks, etc. threads?  Also, terrible threads.  Also started mostly, by the trolls and alts that Jeremy and others have let run wild so that decent threads about the season, about the future, about the draft and cap with actual intelligent and decent points get pushed down for more "Should the Panthers trade for Nick Foles??!?!?" type crap. Threads, based in absolute idiocy with zero thought put into them, that one Google about his contract or knowledge of the situation would immediately make a normal person laugh at.  But, Jeremy also got what he wanted from this thread.  He threw the grenade and within a couple hours it's at multiple pages, people are arguing, etc.

My question is does a player on IR count against the cap?

i mean, go get Foles and see where it goes—

You can’t plan for the future, only the now. The future doesn’t say anyone will be alive, healthy or anything.

now does

In this thread, about a trade for Nick Foles...the guy who will get 20+ million next season regardless of who he plays for and having a trade value of high end picks?

And people are saying ohhh yesss do that trade for a mid round pick, without even looking at the contract or cap ramifications?  Yeah I'd say there's a clear difference in critical thinking skills in this thread. 

 

For your other question above.  Yes, an IR'd player counts against the cap.  Maybe won't meet certain incentives in their salary, but if players didn't count against the cap on IR we'd have our Matt Kalil solution.

Actually people that think like you do hold the world down.

Tesla, Edison, Musk, Gates, Von Braun.. all lived in possibilities and making dents in the universe.

football translation would be Sean McVae, the Bears— wow the Bears— trade the world for a DE? The cowboys traded a 1st round pick for a 1 year rental receiver,.. how’s that working out? He had over 100 yards and was a big factor in going to and winning a playoff game for them.

the fact is that people that bash others by constantly telling everyone that the world is at an end, build a wall or all the little brown people will destroy America, and don’t go to space because it’s more important to spend the money on war are the ones that keep lightbulbs from being invented.

we would all still be in the dark ages 

oh i just had to add this— Rugby becoming invented from soccer, a dreamer picks up a soccer ball and runs down the field to dive into the goal as a frustration joke— and Rugby is born— dreamer,.. probably completely idiotic.

football gets born because Rugby was close to being outlawed, too many fights playing in the US, a Scrum becomes the line of Scrimmage, and some idiot invents the forward pass with a lot of people saying it was an “idiotic” discussion

there would be no football, Disney, Hollywood, Apple, Mini Coopers or a United States for that matter without dreamers who aren’t scared of rules or confines.

damn the Chargers Ravens are so boring—

Eagles are not gonna trade Foles for a mid round pick when they had offers for a first rounder this past offseason. And Foles in Carolina under Rivera = Foles in Stl under Fisher 

In addition it will cost the Iggles 20 million to keep Foles. He will be released, not traded.

https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/12/26/nick-foles-carson-wentz-philadelphia-eagles-contracts-2019

The reigning Super Bowl MVP is on the books for a striking $20 million salary in 2019. Whether he receives that salary—at least whether he receives it from the Eagles—is a serious question. Here is the definitive summary of the mutual option, for both the Eagles and Foles, in the current contract.

1. The Eagles must decide if they are going to exercise the option to keep Foles (and his $20 million salary) 30 days prior the 2019 league year, meaning in the week following the Super Bowl.

2. If the Eagles do not exercise the option, Foles becomes a free agent.

3. If and when the Eagles exercise the option, Foles must make a decision in the five days after that.

4. If Foles decides to void the option and cancel the contract, he must concurrently pay back the Eagles $2 million, the amount of his 2018 signing bonus, and he will then become a free agent.

5. If Foles decides not to void the option and remain with the Eagles, the $20 million salary becomes fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2019 league year (March 18).

To summarize, the Eagles have the first decision point: whether to keep Foles at a $20 million salary. But even if they do, Foles can invalidate that decision by paying back $2 million and becoming a free agent. Alternatively, Foles can accept the option and his contract would become fully guaranteed if he is not released prior to March 18.

Some really good information.

If his $20 million becomes fully guaranteed it’s still just for one year and a new contract can be worked out.

hes won a Super Bowl and this time remains open.

however he hasn’t played a full season in a long time,.. so I believe he would have a quite reasonable contract with an option to work out a new contract if he continues to play Lights out.

hes better than any first round quarterback this year by far, so let’s make a list of teams that really need a new quarterback.

Panthers(for now— no guarantee of the future)

Miami— Tannehill sucks

Jacksonville— the most obvious trade partner— Jax should trade a 1st round pick for Foles— it would be their smart move— they should move on from Fournette too— jeez I’m so glad fans weren’t right and we drafted that guy ha.

Giants— no way Phily trades to them but if Foles was released it would be perfect for him. Pat shurmur and all that.

i could keep going but I’m lazy now— chargers game is putting me to sleep

What’s with all the click bait threads recently? There’s a better chance of the Panthers signing freaking Colin Kaepernick than trading for Nick Foles.

Julio had a meltdown yesterday and I think he might have got himself banned.  Apparently it fell upon management to take over making Julio quality treads.

Kinda hard to trade a qb who’s contract voids 23 days before the 2019 season. 

 

Waste of thread

    • By  Brian Klaas  Global Opinions contributor May 27, 2020 at 2:51 p.m. EDT In January 2016, Donald Trump said something unintentionally profound: “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters.” We’ll hopefully never find out whether Trump really could get away with murder. But we now know he can at least falsely accuse someone of murder without triggering a political exodus. This “Fifth Avenue problem” is a central puzzle of the Trump presidency. Somehow, Trump can tweet something that would destroy any other politician when he wakes up, and it’s forgotten by lunchtime. Don’t believe me? In the last week, Trump didn’t just make a false accusation of murder. He also praised one of the United States’ most virulent anti-Semites as a man who bestowed “good bloodlines” on his descendants. He retweeted a man who called Hillary Clinton, the first woman to be a major-party candidate for president, a “skank.” Trump shared an image with Nancy Pelosi, the first woman to serve as House speaker, with duct tape over her mouth and then mocked her physical appearance. And he repeatedly fabricated lies about voter fraud. If Joe Biden behaved like that, it would destroy his career. But when Trump does it, it has no significant impact on his support. His depravity is now just widely assumed. It’s baked in. That presents a paradox: The last three years have felt like we’re collectively strapped into the world’s worst roller coaster — of endless scandals, tweets in search of reality and new lows for presidential conduct. Yet for all those disorienting twists and turns,and the seemingly endless plunge of presidential standards, Trump’s approval rating has remained pretty much the same. In functioning democracies, politicians live and die by public opinion. George W. Bush certainly learned that lesson. After 9/11, his approval rating soared to 90 percent. As the Iraq War worsened and the economy collapsed, he hit a low of 25 percent. Nearly 7 out of 10 Americans changed their minds about him at some point during his presidency. Trump is fundamentally different. According to Gallup, his highest approval rating has been 49 percent; his lowest, 35 percent. For 103 out of the 130 polls Gallup has conducted since Trump took office, his approval rating has been stuck between 37 percent and 43 percent. (The margin of error is usually around 3 percent, so it’s plausible that public opinion rarely moves and we’re mostly seeing statistical noise.) Heck, during the pandemic 100,000 Americans have died and nearly 40 million Americans have become unemployed. And still Trump’s approval rating has moved up and down a few percentage points at most. How is that possible? There are three main reasons for this “Fifth Avenue problem.” First, Trump gets away with it because the previously unthinkable has become routine. As a species, we are drawn to fresh and surprising information — something we could call “novelty bias.” What would surprise you more: Trump amplifying a lunatic conspiracy theory in a tweet or him unequivocally praising the sacrifices of immigrant nurses and doctors during the pandemic? The former happens all the time; the latter would provoke breathless commentary. Is Trump finally making his mythical pivot to being presidential? Is this a new general election strategy? For every other mainstream politician, that dynamic would be inverted. That’s why this week’s Sunday morning shows focused on Joe Biden’s recent bungled joke (for which he quickly apologized). Meanwhile, Trump’s praise of a well-known anti-Semite and his false accusation of murder weren’t mentioned. Second, it’s not easy for humans to admit when we are wrong. It produces a feeling called cognitive dissonance. That has always been true. But for Trump voters, who have, by now, stuck with him despite him boasting about sexual assault, countless scandals and a steady stream of racism, the psychological cost of breaking ranks has soared. His supporters would have to say to themselves: “All of Trump’s previous conduct was acceptable, but this is the final straw!” There is a ratcheting effect. The more you were willing to accept, the harder it is to let go. Third, U.S. politics is now defined by a phenomenon called “motivated reasoning,” the tendency to see reality through the lens of desired outcomes. For many Trump voters, reality stretches to fit a prior worldview. Every Trump scandal proves that the “deep state” exists. Every new revelation about Trump’s unfitness for office proves that he’s the victim of “fake news.” Everything in our politics is filtered through the prism of pro-Trump/anti-Trump divides. We’ve reached the dystopian moment in our politics in which taking common-sense actions to stop the spread of a virus by wearing a mask is a partisan act. None of this is to say that Trump can get away with everything. He is losing support among key demographics during the pandemic, most notably with the crucial voting bloc of Americans 65 and older. In a competitive election, even modest changes can spell doom for a candidate. But let’s be frank: American democracy is badly broken if few people change their minds about a president who falsely accuses someone of murder or boasts about his TV ratings while 100,000 Americans lose their lives and nearly 40 million lose their jobs. And that says as much about the dysfunctional state of our country as it does about Trump.
