Good morning…. and we still live in a world where Andy Reid is an egotistical nut who thinks he can turn average players in stars. Mike Garafolo of USA Today:

The Chiefs and new coach Andy Reid are interested in acquiring Foles if he becomes available, according to a person informed of the team's thinking. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs haven't discussed their thoughts publicly, said the team is working on plans to add a quarterback and considers Foles a possibility.

Kelly has said Foles and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job despite their differences in style. The person informed of the Chiefs' plans said the Eagles have not told Kansas City that Foles is available.

 

OF COURSE HE’S AVAILABLE. The moment Chip Kelly signed Dennis Dixon (because that was 100% Kelly’s move) to a two-year deal yesterday, Foles became a possibility for virtually every franchise in the league of nationalized football teams. By re-signing Vick and then signing Dixon, Kelly made it clear that he’s going to do what everybody thought he would do in the NFL– speed first, everything else second. Dixon isn’t there to take Vick’s job… he’s there to murder Foles. Kill him. Kill him with speed.

To the Fat Man: STOP IT. JUST STOP IT. You can’t turn everyone into a star.

Also: Today’s weather is mild with a 70% chance that Reid himself leaked this story.

UPDATE: Sources (read: someone with the Eagles) told Reuben Frank that the Eagles don't plan on trading Foles. Right.

  1. So, Andy Reid wants Nick Foles in Kansas City. The Eagles offered the QB to the Chiefs, but Howie Roseman’s price of a tray of ribs from Arthur Bryant’s and some cornbread was too high for Andy.

  2. Trade Foles for anything. Literally. Draf a mid round QB and roll with Vick, Dixon and a rookie or fuck it, keep “Captain Checkdown” Trent Edwards as the three…
    Chip is just kiling time until he can get Mariotta or Manziel next year. I you can get ANYTING for Foles, do it, and don’t look back.
