Hes got his 2013 season with 27 TDs and 2 INTs and his incredible playoff run last year going for him, and he played fantastic during that time and nobody can ever take that away from him.  But every other chance he's been given, he's struggled.  2014 he was out played by Mark Sanchez, and he was putrid on the Rams and his performance from that season can't be blamed on Jeff Fisher being his head coach.  He looked good as a backup with the chiefs against the colts, but then couldn't do anything against the 3-13 jaguars.  And now to start this season, he averaged less than 4 YPA against the Falcons and played mediocre against the Bucs until near the end of the 3rd quarter.  I think it's safe to say his trade value will never be that of a 2nd round pick again, and I also don't think he'll ever be a starter again at any point

But I've never seen a quarterback with a weirder career path than Foles.  His career is almost like Brock Osweiler's career in reverse.  I can't even compare this to Jim plunkett, because at least plunkett was a consistent starter in the league over a longer period than 1.5 seasons.  I really do think Foles is the biggest one shot wonder in NFL history

This is why I think Chip Kelly should be given more credit as a head coach.  He put up back to back 10 win season with Foles and Sanchez as his quarterbacks.  Anyone who can do that has my respect.  The issue was when they gave him total control

You still got PTSD from last year's NFCCG?

 

You can't be considered a one shot wonder if you did it more then once in different years. You take away his time with Jeff Fisher , hell any QB really with Jeff Fisher as a Ram and Foles numbers are as comparable as any other back up QB in most cases.

Mark Rypien 1991.

Rypien was a Pro Bowler in 1989 and won a playoff game in 1990.  Plus he played the entire season in 1991.  I'm not sure he would be more of a 1 shot wonder than Foles, who only had a 10 game stretch in 2013 combined with 2 really good playoff games in 2017

Jeff Hostetler then. Doug Williams.

Brad Johnson? A mediocre journeyman career spanning multiple teams then...BOOM he's the man during their Super Bowl season, 22 TD's only 6 interceptions. And that was with Alstott stealing Brad's fantasy points (remember the Dunn commercial?)

None of Johnson's other seasons were impressive. Just that one year, 2002.

Last year was magical for the Eagles. Foles played a Jeff Hostetler-like role. I don't think "one shot wonder" exactly fits him. Derek Anderson was a one year wonder. Foles found success in 2 different years, one was regular season success and the other was postseason success. Definitely not a one shot wonder.
