The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their final minicamp together today, and won’t be together again until the start of training camp.
Many questions will accompany the group when they return to the Nova Care Complex, the biggest one being who will start at quarterback.
The man many expect to be the starter, Michael Vick, made it clear that he really doesn’t like splitting reps with Nick Foles according to Thacover2.
“It’s tough,” Vick said, when asked about splitting the reps Thursday. “I have to contiunue to be a professional and put my feelings and emotions to the side, and just continue to compete. But it’s hard. I would be lying if I said it wasn’t, but that’s just what I have to deal with, and I’m going to keep dealing with it until I see otherwise.”
Vick was asked if he voiced his displeasure to Chip Kelly at all?
“We haven’t talked about it yet,” Vick said. “Coach knows exactly what he’s doing. We don’t question him, he don’t question us. We just listen.
In my opinion it’s Vick’s job to lose, and at this point he simply needs to focus on the playbook and his turnover problem.
BEST OF MAXIM

Personally I think Chip Kelly is playing mind games with Mike Vick, trying to inspire Mike to put all his eggs into a total basket of winning football in 2013...
I think Kelly wants Vick to feel the doubt and the "try-out" angst of having to make a football team again...perhaps for the first time since Mike was in junior high school.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter feels like Michael Vick has to be considered the favorite right now to win the Eagles starting quarterback job because of how much money he’s scheduled to make in 2013 and the fact that he’s more experienced and more talented than the other quarterbacks on their roster.
It ultimately makes the most sense for Vick to start. The preseason will give Chip...
