Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Matt Barkley is having a great time so far in rookie minicamp. He's seen Chip Kelly's offense go to work from the other side of the field when he was at USC, now he gets to participate in it. "You are always going back on the field after a score it seems like, not a punt or a turnover," Barkley said via the Eagles official website. Now that I'm on this end, I think it's a better situation and hopefully we can put that pressure on other teams." "I love it. It's a new challenge. New terminology is like learning a new language in a short time period. It's the next step. I'm embracing it. I loved being out there today." Per the Eagle's website: ' The Eagles traded up to the first pick of the fourth round to select the most prolific passer in USC and Pac-12 history. Kelly said that he was impressed with Barkley's ability to thrive under pressure and his "repetitive accuracy." The pick was considered a surprise because of the perception that Kelly needed a mobile quarterback to run his offense. Kelly dismissed that notion and Barkley was more than confident Friday that he and Kelly can work well together. "I think I'll make it fit. It doesn't matter what Coach runs. I'm going to find a way to help this team out," Barkley said. "I know Coach Kelly has a way of working things out as well in terms of how he schemes and how he calls plays." '

  • barkley will do what the other losers of 53 years hasnt done and he will finally win one, the super bowl for you brain dead beagles out there
  • No chance barkley even makes it as an NFL QB. His arm is weak he's so so as a runner out of the pocket and worst of all....he's a QB out of USC. A runningback out of USC, great!!! But not a QB, they always suck big time. Let me name a few....Vince Evans, Mark Sanchez, Carson Palmer, Matt Cassel, Rodney Peete, Matt Leinart, Rob Johnson, Sean Salisbury, John David Booty, Pat Haden, Bill Nelsen, Pete Beathard, Paul McDonald, Todd Marinovich. What do all these QB's have in common, they NEVER won a damn thing in the NFL. Some of them outright SUCK(ED). One even has the nickname 'Butt Fumble'. Besides, the eagles Bad Karma means they will NEVER win a Super Bowl...NEVER!!!!!
