NFC West Update

In an effort to avoid a lame-duck quarterback situation or risk having to overpay next offseason, the St. Louis Rams have signed QB Nick Foles to a two year contract extension. The deal is worth $24.5 million and includes $13.79 million in guaranteed money. Reports suggest the Rams can void the last year of the deal based on performance so technically it is a 1-year extension with a team option for a second year. That being said, the fact that more than half of the contract is guaranteed bodes well for Foles considering that he is a relatively inexperienced quarterback and that there are substantial questions regarding whether his success was a byproduct of Chip Kelly’s offense in Philadelphia or his own aptitude. Due to Sam Bradford’s propensity for getting injured the Rams’ had to rely on the likes of Shaun Hill and Austin Davis last season and they simply aren’t staring caliber NFL quarterbacks. Apparently fed up with Bradford’s “glass-like” nature the Rams opted for the former Eagles’ signal caller instead. Foles brings some upside to the “Show Me State” but it is telling that Chip Kelly thought more highly of Sam Bradford when the two QBs were swapped for one another in March.


Foles turned heads in 2013 with a sterling 27:2 touchdown to interception ratio but came crashing back down to earth in an injury shortened 2014 season when he completed less than 60% of his passes and had a pedestrian 14:10 touchdown to interception ratio. The Rams have a playoff caliber defense and perhaps the best defensive line in the game. Their offense on the other hand lacks pass catching threats and the offensive line is a work in progress. Certainly a departure in talent compared to Philadelphia on the offensive side of the ball. Rams’ head coach Jeff Fisher is a defensive-minded, run oriented coach; so while eye-popping statistical output is out of the question Foles will be expected to do a much better job of managing games and protecting the football this season than he did in 2014.
