NFL: QB Controversy in Philadelphia??

After a stellar showing by Nick Foles 22-31 passes 296 yards and 3 touchdowns. One has to ask himself will Mike Vick get his job back when healthy. Foles looked like a perfect fit for Chip Kelly’s system. Even showed off some running ability on a scramble for a TD. Most importantly, Nick Foles didn’t turn over the ball. Something that has been happening frequently, with Vick behind center. It will be interesting to see what happens when Vick is cleared to play. Matt Barkley is also waiting in the wings. If Foles continues this level of play, he won’t have to look over his shoulder at all.

Serious Mistake, Cleveland Browns.

There has been talks the pasttwo days of the Cleveland Browns potentially moving stud WR Josh Gordon in a trade. Compensation for that trade is believed to be a 2nd rounder in return. Yes, it sounds great. But if the Cleveland Browns make that trade it will haunt them for years to come.

No Josh Gordon isnt Calvin Johnson. But I believe he can be a top 10 reciever in this league. You dont just up and trade that kind of potential. He doesn’t have “elite” speed, but yet can kill you if he gets in the open field. Gordon also has a strong set of hands, which allows him to make that spectacular grab, or catch in traffic. He almosts mirrors a former wide reciever by the name of Terrelle Owens. While Gordon’s route running isnt close to Owens, its not bad either. He has no problems getting open. For the Browns to even consider this trade, speaks volumes to the type of organization they are.

I know the thought process for the front office is build for next year. But the thing is, theres not a reciever with the upside of Josh Gordon in this draft, outside of Texas A&M WR Mike Davis and USC WR Marquis Lee. Cleveland needs to stay put and build around their young talent. Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon are great building blocks for an offense. Its not like the Browns are oozing of offensive talent. They need to hold on to what they have.

Their are no guarantees in the NFL draft, which we all know. So the thought of trading a sure thing, for a chance at an unproven commodity makes no sense. Especially for a franchise who has been hit or miss on drafting offensive talent. They finally hit on WR Gordon, and they should hold on to him through hell and high water.
