But when he had where he was going right, he showed fantastic accuracy. That’s big b/c… — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 14, 2013 2) An overlooked key to QB in Kelly’s no-huddle is consistency. Gotta avoid 3-and-outs, or the D will get killed. Chain-moving is big. … — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 14, 2013 3) So Barkley’s strong suit, his accuracy/consistency/head, is big. Still, you could see a sizable gap in arm strength b/w he and Vick. … — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 14, 2013 Even if Barkley isn’t the Eagles starter right out of the gate, I would still expect him to get some playing time during the regular season.  As we all know Michael Vick can’t stay healthy and we have no idea how Nick Foles will look in head coach Chip Kelly’s offense.   Need NFL Tickets?
