[Michael Vick and Nick Foles split the majority of the first team repetitions as the Eagles opened their first minicamp practice under coach Chip Kelly on Tuesday, Jeff McLane of Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Asked who stood atop the depth chart, Kelly said that Vick and Foles were "even." Foles took the first snaps during 11-on-11 drills and Vick took the first snaps during 7-on-7s, according to the coach.

"There wasn't one set guy that just went with the ones the entire day," Kelly said. "All those guys got an opportunity to roll through."

Dennis Dixon also took some first team snaps, Kelly said. The Eagles are down to four quarterbacks after Trent Edwards was released on Monday. Kelly said that Edwards, who stood little chance of making the team, asked for his release.

G.J. Kinne, presumably, is fourth on the quarterback depth chart.

Kelly has said since February when the Eagles decided to bring back Vick that he and Foles would compete for the starting job. Many have speculated that Vick's return assured him the starting spot. The Eagles still have the draft next week and could add another signal caller to the fray.

With Edwards' release, Foles became the lone "pocket passer" of the four remaining quarterbacks. Kelly was asked if he was looking for strictly athletic quarterbacks to run his offense and whether Foles could be the odd man out.

"You're making way too much of it," Kelly told the questioner. "The best quarterbacks are the best quarterbacks."]

JUST SO IT'S CLEAR FROM THIS POINT ON IS ME. I know we have a few slow ones in the group.

So I guess Chip Kelly is really playing out this fake competition thing. To the point of GET THIS actually having a quarterback competition! Go figure that Chip Kelly would go as far as to pretend to have a quarterback competition. Have you all figured it out yet? May the best man of this mediocre bunch fake win. Like I have written before I don't care who wins as long as they have earned it, but what about the rest of you? Is you favorite choice more important than the team? How deep is your love Vick?
