    Who'll become the starting Quarterback for the Eagles this fall? Will this become a QB controversy?

    Nick Foles or Carson Wentz?

    I don't think there's even a question. You have Wentz as your starter and trade Foles and get a ton back for him. It's probably their only move.

    Similar thing happened to Drew Bledsoe when he got injured and replaced by a young...Tom Brady. Led them to the Super Bowl and poor Drew never got the starting role back.

    Foles played amazing but Wentz is the future in Philly.

    There is absolutely no controversy

    Carson Wentz is the Eagles franchise QB

    Trade Foles. Wentz is future.

    Both seem like great kids. Good luck to them. #Jesustherealmvp

    Like others have said Wentz is the younger fresher QB, trade Foles, the fans will understand and will always have Foles in their heart, and also Foles will likely get a lucrative deal on another team as a starter.

    Best option is to trade Foles and Foles will be ok with. A hefty contact with a SB mvp who went neck and neck with the greatest QB in the sport is hard to pass up for any team.

    Foles had his chance at starting with a handful of teams already. Franchise QB is more important than anything else.

    Wentz is the starter.

    I think Foles stays. He almost retired before coming back here because he wasn't having fun anymore. He's had success here twice, and he loves it here, and now he's a legend in this city. Him and Wentz are superpals, and as this season proved, never hurts to have that ace in the hole.

    Unless we get offered a 1st rounder... which I doubt.... I don't think Howie moves him.

    Philly might make them compete for starting jobs to be fair, Philly will like that, because its the best thing to do, and just say Wentz won out.

    As soon as Wentz is healthy, he'll start. He might miss a few weeks at the start of the season, but when he's ready, its his team.

    We lost Sproles...Clement stepped up
    We lost Sturgis...Elliot stepped up
    We lost Peters.... Big V stepped up
    We lost Hicks... Kendricks stepped up.
    We lost Wentz.... Foles stepped up.

    Thats just the way this team is... and it all starts with the coach... the real coach of the year. Doug Pederson.

    You can get a lot for Foles... especially with so many teams not having a decent QB.

    No you cant.

    Big Dick Nick has done some crazy things with the Eagles but teams arent going to forget he was absolute shit outside of there.

    Outside of Philly, he's only played 14 games and 11 of those (mediocre games) were with the Rams under Jeff F'in Fisher. Look at what the Rams just did after ditching that moron this season.

    The other 3 games were in KC with a 105 passer rating.
