Found January 30, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
The biggest roster decision Chip Kelly will make in his first season as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles is at the quarterback position.  The question is, who will he ultimately choose to run his offense? Naturally, the first question to ask is what kind of offense he will run and what characteristics he is looking for in a quarterback.  Kelly’s offense at Oregon was mainly a combination of read-option spread along with a fast-paced tempo (hurry-up). His quarterbacks were mostly the athletic type, i.e., guys who can run or at least pose the threat of running.  He has stated that he doesn’t necessarily need a mobile quarterback because he can, and would, tailor his offense to match the strength of his personnel. That’s all fine and dandy, and, that’s what he should be saying.  However, in all reality he will want to have a mobile QB who, at the least, presents the threat of running the ball if they’re running a read-option offense.

  • If he wants to improve the QB position trying to land either Alex Smith or Matt Flynn would probably be as good of a start as any. It would make Foles more competitive and give either guy a chance to prove themselves.

    Foles is good needs to play more , he did not get much time with the animal abuser there.
    Had to wait til Andy knew he was going to get canned so he stopped playing his BUDDY Vick all the time.

  • Wake up! Luarie has destroyed the team for the next 10 years if we are lucky he will be gone before then!

Offseason Needs: Philadelphia Eagles

But if the new regime isn’t interested in Foles, Geno Smith may be a first-round option...

Vick could choose to take a cut, but it’s unlikely with Andy Reid in Kansas City and the Chiefs would likely...
