Chip Kelly is not ready to give the keys to Nick Foles

Chip Kelly of the Eagles could turn in a different direction next season. Nick Foles is a very solid quarterback, and Mark Sanchez is a free agent. The problem is Kelly is not one hundred percent sure on Foles future.

“The reality is the reality,” Kelly said, per the Philly Inquirer. “I can’t say, ‘Hey, let’s not make a decision because I need to see him play 16 more games.’ In certain times we’re going to have to make decisions, so you have to make it based on what you have. We don’t have any control over the injury.”

While the coach showed support for his young quarterback, he wasn’t ready to give Foles the keys to the car.

“For me to stand here on … the day before Christmas, to say I’ve made my full evaluation of a quarterback, it’s not fair to anybody,” Kelly said. “We have a process that we go through.”

There have been rumors that Kelly and the Eagles could be interested in RG3, but I do not see how that helps the situation unless you trade away Foles.
