Nick Foles-Andy Reid reunion on the horizon with the Chiefs?


Nick Foles-Andy Reid reunion on the horizon with the Chiefs?

Now that the Eagles have re-signed Michael Vick @MikeVick and added free agent quarterback Dennis Dixon, Nick Foles could be the odd man out in Philadelphia. If so, the man that drafted him last year - Andy Reid - is apparently interested in bringing the rising second-year passer to Kansas City. The Chiefs still have Matt Cassel under contract, but unless he agress to a contract redo, probably not for long. They also own the No. 1 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft in a year without a consensus stud passer.

Fantasy Analysis:

Vick and Dixon are more ideally suited for Eagles' new coach Chip Kelly fast breaking offensive designs than Foles so there shouldn't be much shock about this rumor or should a deal go down. While going through the usual rookie roller coaster, Foles threw for 1,699 yards and six touchdowns with five interceptions in seven games for Philadelpha last season. Considering the QB options entering the league last season Foles hardly stood out, yet also had strong moments under Reid's direction. Considering the uncertainty about the Chiefs receiving corps for next season, it's hard imagining Foles as anything more than a low-end and speculative QB2, yet adding him for the right price (middle-round pick) makes more sense for the Chiefs than selecting a QB with the No. 1 overall pick.

NOTE TO READERS: It should read "If so, the man that drafted *HIM* last year" and "in a year with*OUT* a consensus stud passer." The first mistake is minor, the second error changes the entire message.

What's the difference? The only reason to go to a Chiefs game these days is to watch the cheerleaders bump and grind! And exactly what do we have to offer anyone besides our precious first round pick? Don't get me wrong, I've bled KC red for over forty years now, but we have become nothing more than a slapstick parody of a pro football team. My only hope is that Andy Reid can create a minor miracle and transform the Chiefs into the best 7-9 club in the NFL this season.
