Originally written May 25, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
Michael Vick will be the starting QB for the Philadelphia Eagles on opening day in 2013.  Sorry to end the suspense or ruin the surprise if you’ve been eagerly awaiting the much anticipated quarterback battle royale in training camp. How can I make such a bold proclamation when it appears that there really is a full-fledged, honest-to-God open competition?  And, Nick Foles is getting just as many repetitions with the first team as is Vick? Well, obviously I’m not basing my opinion on performance in mini-camp nor do I think Vick is the best QB on the roster.  Call it a mixture of rationale, logic and gut instinct. When the Eagles decided to keep Vick and restructured his contract, Kelly made a comment at the time about having to consider the “landscape for other quarterbacks.”  The logical reasoning for that comment was due to the fact there weren’t any other available quarterbacks who were clearly better than Vick. That included Nick Foles as well as any potential free agent or draf...

  • Hmmmm, let's see...Vick is washed up...Foles is a work in progress and definitely not the kind of QB to run an up pace offense like Kelly is gonna try to run. Barkley will be another USC bust like so many before him,(like Carson Palmer, Vince Evans,John David Booty Mark Sanchez, Matt Cassel, Rodney Peete, Matt Leinart, Rob Johnson, Sean Salisbury, Pat Haden, Bill Nelsen,Todd Marinovich, Pete Beathard, Paul McDonald, just to name a few). And Kinne, who the hell is that??? As a Giants fan I'm gonna enjoy watching this comedy unfold.
