03:29 PM ET 02.07 | With Kelly reportedly not as high on Foles as some believe, and Vick's future in doubt, La Canfora won't be surprised if the Eagles make a run at Alex Smith, who the 49ers will either trade or cut prior to the NFL Draft. Smith lost his starting job in San Francisco to Colin Kaepernick midway through the 2012 season. Smith doesn't have the speed that Kelly's quarterbacks at Oregon had, but he is an accurate passer. Smith completed a career-high 70.2 percent of his passes in 2012, and averaged 7.97 yards per attempt -- also a career-high. Entering his age 29 season, Smith could well be entering the prime of his career, and his accuracy will certainly attract many teams this offseason.

That Billy Davis could probably coach as well as the bum the Iggles hired.

I think Kirk Cousins would compliment the direction Chip Kelley invisions the team going in, moving forward, yo.

Wow that's breaking news. Only EVERYBODY has been reporting it since about 3/4 of the season was over.

So... what would the Iggles have to give up for an up-and-coming QB like Cousins?

Where does it say it was breaking news? It's just some random's opinion.

I think Smith would fit nicely with the Eagles team. But Smith wouldn't be able to handle the Eagles Fans and what's left of his game will fail under that pressure. Look somewhere else Smith.

Smith should ask for his release, if he gets it, pick and choose the team he wants to play for, if the Niners pick up the club option and trade Smith, he would be better off going to that team, not sign a contract, if it works out sign with new team if not, go the free agency route! Defiantly a Chinese Menu!!!
