For weeks there has been debate about the Eagles quarterback situation, and who should and shouldn’t get first team reps. Michael Vick, for one, wanted a resolution before training camp, it was assumed that Vick was growing frustrated and annoyed with just not being named a starter. People wanted to know, is Michael Vick scared of a quarterback competition? Eagles GM Howie Roseman spoke on the situation today, and told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Vick was “all for” a quarterback competition, and “really wanted to show what he could do.” “Every conversation I’ve had, and anyone in this building had with Michael about competition, he’s all for it,” Roseman said, via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “He wants the best players to play and he’s not shying away from competition in any aspect. He knew that when we signed him. He knew there was going to be competition at every spot, and he said nothing other than he wants to compete.” Vick really has no choice in the competition, and needs to buckle down and win, if he wants to earn all of that $10 million. If he wins it, he’s a starter, gets to display his skills for a possible lucrative deal in 2014, and he gets $10 million. If Vick loses the job, he’ll probably only get the $3.5 million guaranteed to him, is likely to be released, and will probably suffer the fate of backup for the rest of his career.
