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 a team wants to know who the quarterback will be also.
“The team wants to know too,” Jackson said Tuesday on NFL Total Access. “We need to go into training camp prepared and know who is going to be our starting quarterback.”
Kelly has reiterated over and over that his team has no set depth chart. It seems that Eagles players a whole don’t like that rule when it comes to the quarterback.
They simply all want to know who it will be.
Jackson for his part says the quarterback competition has been even.
“It has been kind of even,” Jackson said. “[Michael] Vick and [Nick] Foles have been switching off [with] first team [and] second team. I think they would both do a great job and we will be ready for the season.”

DESEAN WITH THE DISS
During a recent interview, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson became the latest NFL player to question Tim Tebow's ability.
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.”

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?
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...

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.
