I don't think that Foles was completely horrible last year or anything. He did an OK job given the circumstances. But he was no where close to the level that Andrew Luck was on. If you look at the article, he was actually much closer to Brandon Weeden and that speaks for itself.

However, there still is a lot of hope and potential there. The greatly improved (healthy) o-line and a better scheme/play-calling will undoubtedly help a lot.

While I am hopeful for Foles and honestly think he can grow into a serviceable starter you can't look at what he did last season, in comparison to Vick, and say he was anything other then below average. People bash Vick, and rightfully so, but give Foles a pass based on his years of service. Production is all that matters a Foles production was no better then Vicks and therefor should be examined under that light. In other words, if you Vick was awful then Foles was just as awful. Stats can be manipulated, yes, but they do not lie.

The article is by a Jon Moore, and your username is MooreJE3...

Honestly pitting him against a Luck is taking things out of context, not in context. You really can't look at things statistically considering those numbers are primarily dictated by their supporting cast. A lot has been said of Luck's stats but he did go to the worst team in the league.

It's cool if you're sharing a topic you wrote about, and there's nothing really wrong with posting something you wrote. But this feels like someone fishing for article views and potential customers to a subscription service.
