Report: Eagles Have “Soured” on Nick Foles Before Injury
A report in The Newark Star-Ledger by Mark Eckel says members of the Eagles organization, including GM Howie Roseman, had "soured" on Nick Foles even before he broke his collarbone in Week 9.
The report explains how Foles was not the choice of Roseman in the 2012 draft, and according to the report apparently Roseman wanted to select Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins who went in the fourth round, Foles was selected by the Eagles in the third round.

"I think Howie is looking at quarterbacks," a league source told NJ.com in the story. "He's kind of soured on Foles, and I don't think he's alone. The organization isn't sold that he's the guy going forward. Let's just say the way things were going, he wasn't going to get a contract extension that's for sure."
Foles is eligible for an extension in the offseason.
After posting a eye-popping 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions a year ago, Foles has regressed this season, making bad decisions, turning the ball over and just doesn't seem to be playing with the same confidence he displayed in 2013.
So far this season, Foles has 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
