During the offseason, Rams fans must have thought they swindled Chip Kelly and the Eagles. Not only were they able to secure a steady hand at quarterback in Nick Foles and a 2nd round pick, they were able to discard 1st round bust Sam Bradford.

Or so they thought.

While Bradford has steadily improved for the Eagles as the season has progressed, Foles implosion has landed him on the St. Louis bench behind Case Keenum. In 11 games, Foles has completed just 56.4 percent of his passes while posting a pathetic 69.0 passer rating, dead last in the league. He’s also thrown 10 interceptions, matching his 2014 total and a far cry from 2013, when he tossed just two interceptions in 10 starts.
And just when you thought things couldn’t get worse for Foles, AP photographer Jeff Roberson captured one of his posters in the trash outside the Rams locker room before the start of last week’s game against the Lions:
Columnist Bob Brookover wasn’t surprised about Foles’ disappointing season, as he detailed in a terrific column last month:

You look at Foles' numbers or his actual performance on the field, and you wonder how he ever put together the 2013 season that gave Eagles fans the false hope he could be the team's next franchise quarterback. In seven of his nine starts this season he has failed to throw for 200 yards, and he has thrown more than one touchdown pass in a game just once. In four games, he failed to throw for even one touchdown. Only five of his 24 starts with the Eagles ended without him throwing a touchdown. He threw for 200 or more yards in 18 of his starts and 300 or more eight times.

But now, even after signing a two-year extension that guaranteed him nearly $14 million, Foles is on the bench, and you have to wonder when the Rams will go in a different direction when the season is over.

Chip Kelly the GM has been forced to endure a particularly embattled tenure so far in Philadelphia. But in this one move, even with the loss of a 2nd round pick, swapping Foles for Bradford is turning out to be a winner.
