What a difference a year makes.Last season, Nick Foles was slowly being transitioned into the Eagles' offense under then-coach Andy Reid.The quarterback from Arizona's progress was one positive Philadelphia could take in an otherwise anemic 2012 campaign.However, Foles' position, more importantly his position on the depth chart, solely relied on Reid's future as the Eagles' head coach.Fast forward to today. Chip Kelly is now the head coach, he has implemented his fast-paced, up-tempo offense & suddenly, there may be a change of scenery in Foles' future.While he is currently second on the depth chart behind current starter Michael Vick, Foles could easily be beaten out by third-stringer Dennis Dixon. Of the three quarterbacks, Dixon is the most familiar with Kelly's offense, as he played for the Oregon Ducks as a senior when Kelly was the offensive coordinator.Dixon unfortunately went down with a torn ACL, which cost him his draft stock as he was unable to perform in the NFL Combine. It's not crazy to think that Dixon could eventually surpass Vick for the Eagles' starting job under center with his experience in Kelly's offense.The final moment that will ultimately decide Foles' fate will take place on April 25th during the NFL Draft. Should Philadelphia take another quarterback that would fit Kelly's offensive scheme during the Draft, it would all but guarantee the end of Foles' tenure as an Eagle.The Eagles could still shock the world and take Geno Smith with the fourth overall pick. A more realistic option that wouldn't derail the Eagles' first round would be to take E.J. Manuel from Florida State in the second or third. Manuel has even been quoted as saying he'd love to end up in Philly.If Foles is indeed through in Philadelphia, he won't be unemployed for long. He'll almost immediately be picked up by the Cardinals, Jets or the Chiefs, reuniting him with in Kansas City with Andy Reid.Whatever happens, one thing's for sure. Nick Foles' time in Philadelphia is almost up.
