Because I think Barkley has upside that Foles doesn't. I have to go back to 2011 to get there, but I remember him going toe to toe with Andrew Luck and not looking a hell of a lot worse than Luck in the process.
I wouldn't risk a 1st getting him here because that shoulder may never be right again. But at the cost of a 2nd, he really could be a steal. And I'll admit, this comes mostly from the time I spent last season selling myself on him as a worthy consolation after not sucking badly enough for Luck. When all was said and done, I really did like the guy...until he stayed in.
