In this scenario we're assuming we finish missing the playoffs and continued our sloppy inconsistent crap play. I'm going to give us an 8-8 record for the sake of this, and just say we pick 15th in the draft. Now what do you WANT us to do for the QB position, not what you think will happen.

Personally I want us to draft a QB in the 2nd-4th round range to compete with Foles (unless he got to start and looked really good this year) for the starting job. I really don't think Foles will suck, but I'm not sure he'll ever be an above average starter. Drafting a QB decently early will ensure we have a solid backup plan to Foles in case he doesn't pan out, or doesn't show any potential to eventually become a great QB.

In all probability, we go 8-8 we get a new HC, he'll want his own QB, it'll either be Foles, 1st Rounder or a FA

The Blah's guess would be first rounder

Start Foles unless we make it far into the Playoffs.

I can't give a definitive answer right now. At the end of the season, we will have a pretty good handle on things and know whether or not we'll need a new QB.

Foles will undoubtedly get some playing time this year. We all pretty much know we will finish .500 or under. This team just isn't good. Andy and the rest of the staff, the o-line, and Vick are holding us back.

If Foles takes over for Vick (it's just a question of when) and plays well, then whoever comes in to replace Andy very well may just stick with him. Even though Foles wasn't "his guy", as in he didn't draft him, he very well may like Foles a lot and could spend our first round pick on a tackle. I mean, what coach wouldn't (again this is assuming he plays like we all think he would after the preseason) want a 6'5 QB with a big arm, great accuracy, quick release, and excellent awareness?

Say Foles does play well, but the new coach wants his own QB. This would mean trade. Foles' trade value would probably be pretty high seeing as he is a very young QB who just came off a season in which he played very well. Our new coach would look to get a nice draft pick for him. We could then use that pick to trade up to get Geno Smith or Tyler Wilson or whoever the coach is in love with.

If Foles flops, we will be looking at a new QB as well. Unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to get anything for him in a trade so we'd likely keep him on as a backup. The new HC would then want to get a QB via the draft.

So it basically comes down to Foles and our new Head Coach. I personally think Foles has a chance to be our franchise quarterback. He reminds me a lot of Big Ben. If he plays very well, then the Eagles would be a very enticing team for any Head Coach we are looking at. He would take over a team with a 2nd year QB who showed franchise potential, and that is just a few steps away from being a contender.

What I WANT is for Foles to play great that way we can use our high picks on offensive line, safety, and wr. If we're going to take a QB in the first, I only want Wilson or Geno Smith. If we're gonna get one later, I'd prefer Aaron Murray or Derek Carr.

Draft a qb as highly as we can and let him complete with Foles in training camp.

Abandon the Vick project, which his contract allows us to do perfectly. This was his 2 year try-out on the mega contract. Blame the line, blame the defense, blame the playcalling, blame the receivers, whatever may be the case, Vick has never been a good quarterback in the NFL and will never be.

Pull the plug and move on.

I would prefer to keep Reid though. Lurie should fire Mornhinweg and the management as a whole should look to finding an offensive coordinator who is more keen of the run game.

As far as quarterback goes, keep Trent, keep Foles, but use #15 and use our resources to getting this offensive line in shape.

Spend the year with Foles or Trent battling it out, if neither pan out, then use the first pick the following season for a quarterback.

O-line is #1 priority. We need to give Foles a chance and we're never going to see how good he actually is behind this horrible o-line.

Plus why would we want to draft a rookie QB and throw him behind the worst line ever?

Let Foles take over. Fix o-line. See what happens. If Foles doesn't work out, at least our o-line is better and we can look for a QB in 2014
