Well, that is unless you are talking about the Seattle Seahawks' camp last season. But other than that odd but genius situation, predicting the starting quarterback for most teams is pretty straightforward. For the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns, we all knew Michael Vick and Brandon Weeden would be the starters, but does that make them the right decisions? Let's take a look at both teams' quarterback situations to decipher whether the job is in the best hands. Philadelphia Eagles So, the Eagles would bring in Chip Kelly, the former college coach with one of the most dynamic offensive schemes the game has ever seen and he would not start Michael Vick, one of the most athletic quarterbacks to ever play the game?

You may not like the early decision by Eagles head coach Chip Kelly to declare veteran Mike Vick as the QB#1 for the Eagles in 2013.
