LOL....there it is! I didn't know Foles was a Super Bowl MVP...thanks for letting us know. As for stats saying they're the same...what the hell stats are you looking at? Dalton has thrown for over 34k yards, and 220 TD's and been to the Pro Bowl 3 times. Foles has thrown for 13,700 yards and 80 td's. What exactly about those stats says they're the same?
Andy Dalton has a QB rating of 87.5 Nick Foles has a QB rating of 87.1
Stats are basically the same. The difference is one played through the playoffs and won it all...
Again I give Nick Foles the edge.
LOL...no...the stats are no where near the same. You just picking out the one thats closest to the same doesn't make them all the same. Stop it now.
Yes, I would. Nagy/Pace got Dalton for their job security. Not expecting Fields to drop in our lap, I would have been pleased with Bateman in the first round and Mond in the second. I really don’t think we would have been much better with Dalton as QB1, and you may recall that I predicted he would not stay healthy all season anyway. I just did not expect he would go down this soon.
Oh...and Bateman hasn't played a game yet...he's on the IR...you'd be killing Pace for taking another "bust receiver in the first round". Who do you think you're fooling?
Bateman got a groin injury in the preseason. That was totally unpredictable. He missed the first 3 games of his NFL career. That does not make drafting him a mistake. He was our best bet if we did not get lucky enough to land Fields. And Mond was my best bet for the future — not this year. I expected Dalton would get injured sometime during the year. Even if you think he is slightly better than Foles, it would not make that much difference this year from “big picture” perspective. Either way, with this schedule, it would be sub .500 year with Dalton or Foles as QB1. JABF bigger midget analogy applies.
