I'm okay with trading a 3rd for Foles but there are a couple of clear biases in the OP that should be pointed out. The facts are correct, but the interpretation is slanted or just misleading.


Quote:
He excels on crossing patterns like slants and square-ins, plays that receivers are moving horizontally. He has the arm strength to get the ball firmly outside the numbers on out-routes. He's probably best on slant and post routes.
These are the easiest throws on the field. He has decent accuracy on these, and that's good, but it can be considered the ante to enter the game. If you can't make these throws, you're not a QB.

Foles natural throwing ability is on display with the different arm angles he uses when throwing passes. He will drop-down and go almost side-arm or three quarters at times when throwing screens or in traffic under pressure.
His throwing motion isn't a bug, it's a feature!!!!! True bias here. His throwing motion is definitely a downgrade. Lots of franchise QBs have poor throwing motions, but it isn't something to celebrate.
