So, you wonder.
Nick Foles has led four Eagles victories in four games since taking over at quarterback for Carson Wentz, who's out with a stress fracture in his back.
What happens if Foles leads the Eagles to another win this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Divisional Round of the playoffs? Or the following Sunday in the NFC Championship game? Or two weeks later in the Super Bowl?
Would that be enough for the Eagles to decide to keep him as the starting quarterback next season, and perhaps trade Wentz? Head coach Doug Pederson has insisted all along Wentz would be the starter once he's healthy.
Foles is 9-1 starting for the Eagles in December and the playoffs last season and this. The only loss was a meaningless 2017 regular-season finale in which Foles was out of the game before halftime.
The wins, of course, included the Super Bowl last season, when Foles was named the game's MVP, and the 16-15 victory over the Chicago Bears last Sunday in the NFC wildcard playoffs in which Foles led the Eagles to the game-winning touchdown with 56 seconds left.
