Eagles coach Doug Pederson said, via Sal Paolantonio of ESPN, it is “safe to say” Nick Foles will remain with the team to start the 2018 season. Pederson reiterated what Eagles executive V.P. of football operations Howie Roseman said a day earlier.

Carson Wentz is coming off a knee injury, so the Eagles have a Plan 1A with Foles if Wentz isn’t ready for the start of the season. If Wentz is ready to play, then Foles will return to being a backup.

So how does the Super Bowl MVP feel about returning to the backup role?

“That’s obviously probably a Nick question,” Pederson said, via Zach Berman of philly.com. “But I know Nick and his mentality, and I think he’s fine with that. He understands it’s Carson’s team. He knew that last year. . . . Moving forward, I think he’s going to be OK.”

  1. Really? No crap, that’s because no team will give up what the Eagles want for one year of Foles. Any team that wants him will just wait until next year to sign him as a free agent.

  2. The first bad game Wentz has the fans will be chanting for Foles. I mean that’s not even debatable, it will happen.

  3. nothing else would make sense for now. good problem to have indeed – either one of them better than any other qb in their div.

  4. I think he really does end up staying…and likely starting the first couple of weeks. Teams will be scouting these games to see if his amazing super bowl run was a fluke or not and if not a trade will happen like with the 49ers and Jimmy G.

    Nicks been great…he will be an asset where ever he plays.

  5. Nick Foles is a starting NFL QB and the Eagles are blessed to have him backing up Carson Wentz.

  6. Good decision by the Philthydelphia football team – with that idiot and jughead starter that they have who can’t get out of bounds or protect himself, they’ll need someone to pick up the pieces. Wentz is a blooming idiot. He’ll never survive a season and lead his team to the playoffs by actually playing in the playoffs.

    A blooming idiot who will never survive a season?

    That’s funny. Dude never got a B in his life and just played a full season the year before last and played 13 and 3/4 games last season before suffering a fluke injury. Yet somehow, due to the fact that he got hurt ONE TIME in his NFL career… He is all of a sudden labeled as injury prone. You are either a hater of how good (elite) Wentz is or you are a blooming idiot yourself.

  8. Well UV, not every team’s GM is smart enough to trade one of their only good young players and a pick for a 34 year old QB, that got beat out by Kaepernick, and then give him 70 million. You guys are truly lucky.
