My Sports Rumors:
Last week, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told the media he’d like head coach Chip Kelly to choose a starting quarterback before training camp begins. Well now the other Eagles that had complained about his practice role, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, has chimed in with his two cents. To no surprise to anyone, he agrees with Vick.
“I have been hearing some things about Vick saying that he wants to know,” Jackson said in an interview with the NFL Network. “At the same time, the team wants to know too. We need to go into training camp prepared and know who is going to be our starting quarterback.” (Birds Eye View – Philly.com)
Just like Vick, Jackson wants whomever the starting QB will be to get as many reps as possible with the first team in preseason games. The only problem is who is that guy? Jackson himself has said that the two have seemed even in OTA’s and mini-camp so how can you choose one before games begin? You can’t!

Michael Vick fired the first salvo last week when he admitted his frustration with the Eagles quarterback depth chart, and simply asked head coach Chip Kelly to name a quarterback before camp starts.
It seems that his teammates are now starting to voice that same sentiment. DeSean Jackson appeared on NFL AM yesterday, and according to the Star Ledger, stated that the Eagles as...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has made it clear in recent days that it would be his preference to have a starter named before the start of training camp. And though perhaps it would have been best for him to keep this thought to himself, you can’t really blame him for feeling that way. Who wouldn’t want to have certainty about their job status heading into camp?
WHO WILL WIN IT?
DeSean Jackson recently complained that the Eagles want to know who wins the QB competition. He says it's pretty even so far.

DESEAN WITH THE DISS
During a recent interview, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson became the latest NFL player to question Tim Tebow's ability.
While Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson are eager to know who will be the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback, it's clear Chip Kelly isn't picking a guy before training camp.
Kelly's logic makes sense to others.
''I haven't been evaluating our quarterbacks because I'm focused on the offensive line but I really don't see the point of Chip...
I can definitely predict that Tim Tebow and DeSean Jackson will never be teammates during their careers. Definitely not the kind that gets along.
Jackson was on NFL Network promoting his new documentary, and told the panel that Tebow “is not good enough to be an NFL quarterback.”
“Forty-six percent (completion percentage)? This is not basketball, that is not good enough...
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was a guest on the NFL Network and he didn’t have a problem being honest about what he thinks about Tim Tebow as an NFL quarterback.
“Forty-six percent (completion percentage)? This is not basketball, that is not good enough,” Jackson said, via Larry Brown Sports. “He has the mentality to come in and be a leader and all that good stuff...
