Chip Kelly is just delaying the inevitable by waiting to name Michael Vick as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles come opening day. Mark it down, book it, it’s a wrap, it’s set in stone – whatever phrase you want to say, just know that when they officially announce the starter, expect to hear Vick’s name. I stated this back in May and that appears to be the way it’s shaping up. Vick has performed very well in camp and in the two preseason games so far.  Foles has also performed well, but Vick has been just a little better. By now, it just seems almost obvious Vick will be the starter so why not just get it over with and announce it?  I like Foles and feel he is capable of leading the offense this year and there is a good part of me that prefers him over Vick. The main reason for that is because we’ve seen Vick for 10 years and I don’t completely buy into the notion that just because he’ll be in Kelly’s offense, that he’ll all of a sudden be a different player.
