Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin told PhillyMag.com that quarterback Michael Vick has been running the first-team offense most of the time, while Nick Foles has been “sprinkled” in.
“I mean right now, you’ve got Mike going with the ones,” said Maclin, “and Nick [Foles] sprinkling in some reps here and there.”
Maclin was asked about rookie quarterback Matt Barkley.
“You look at a guy like Mike Vick who has proven himself in this league, a guy like Nick Foles who stepped in last year and had some success to a certain extent. Barkley’s college achievements are off the wall, so he has good guys to learn from,” said Maclin. “I’m sure he is going to have to embrace that. He’s going to go through some ups and downs being a rookie quarterback. But as far as the competition, if there is a competition, if there isn’t, I don’t get caught up in that.”
It would be quite a shock if Vick isn’t the Eagles starter this year.
