If the Philadelphia Eagles win another Super Bowl, they should cut the crap and make Nick Foles the full-time starter for the 2019 season … so says Kevin Hart.
Kev is a HUGE Eagles fan (remember when he drunkenly tried to grab the Lombardi Trophy last year?) … so when we saw him leaving the Barstool Sports offices in NYC on Thursday, we asked how he’d solve the looming QB battle.
TMZ: “If Foles wins you guys another Super Bowl, what do you do with Carson Wentz?”
Kev: “We tell Carson Wentz that he is the reason for our success … we have to go with Foles right now ’cause Foles is the hot guy.”
He continued, “Doesn’t mean that Carson Wentz isn’t our guy, but ultimately you gotta understand the underdog and the underdog story. Foles is helping build that story.”
The QB issue is becoming a hot topic — because Foles is now 4-0 in his last 4 playoff games … and the team is playing pretty great right now.
Here’s the problem … if the Eagles want to keep Foles they’d have to pick up his $ 20 MILLION option — which Foles has to approve. Lotta cash to spend on a backup QB.
Another option … the Eagles could franchise Foles for $ 25 mil and then trade him if the plan is to go with Wentz as the starter.
Decisions, decisions …
Sorry, Nick Foles … even though you’ve got the Philly train back on track (again) — Carson Wentz is STILL the Eagles’ future … so says Ron Jaworski.
The legendary Eagles quarterback says there is no QB controversy in his mind … telling us despite Foles rescuing Philly yet again this season — Carson’s still the man.
“Carson Wentz is the Eagles’ future,” Jaws tells TMZ Sports.
In fact … Ron says he believes the team thinks so highly of Wentz — they’ll let Foles walk in the offseason to another team.
“I believe his next opportunity will be somewhere else, not in Philadelphia,” Jaworski says.
Don’t get it twisted … Ron LOVES Nick, saying what the QB has done for the Eagles is “legendary” — and he even wore a St. Nick tie in the QB’s honor!!
BTW — when we spoke with Jaws about the Eagles in December last year — he correctly predicted Philadelphia’s improbable Super Bowl run … but ya gotta hear why he ain’t doing the same this time around.
Nick Foles is clearly FEEEELIINNN’ himself after lifting the Eagles from the dead right back into the playoff picture — ’cause dude wore a pair of webbed-toe shoes to work Wednesday!!!
The Vibram EL-X’s ain’t exactly known as Jordans in the football world … but Nick still rocked ’em with pride at Philly’s presser Wednesday — showin’ he doesn’t need anyone’s approval to swag out.
“I was wearing them around the house and figured I’d wear them to the facility and try it out. My wife thought I was a little crazy, but I said I’m not really worried about how I look. They’re comfy.”
Foles has done things unconventionally throughout his career … but it’s paid off for the dude — he’s got a Super Bowl MVP and has Philly right back in the mix again this season.
So, who are you to tell B.D.N. his shoes are for squares?!?!?!
