Chip Kelly taking too long with this decision.

Chip Kelley was the hot coach this off-season. Everybody wanted to try to pry him away from Eugene. Actually people thought he would stay in college but the Eagles offer was too good (we are going to ignore the NCAA investigations and say he went because of the Eagles organization). He was going to change how offenses are played at the NFL level with his break neck pace and bring the Eagles back from the NFC East basement. He very well could do that but he needs a quarterback first. Chip Kelly keeping up with this charade of not picking a QB now is a bad idea. I understand you want competition because that brings out the best in players but dragging on this QB battle this long is doing more harm than good. As the old saying goes “If you have 2 QBs you have no QBs.” Receivers need to build a connection with the QB and that takes time and reps. Continually splitting reps is hurting that connection. Most people think Mike Vick will start and honestly he should. I understand he’s not the QB of the future here and the QB of the future might not be on the roster but he’s better than NIck Foles. He refuses to name a starter and even got upset when the media continued to ask about it. Well QB is the most important position on the field and if you have gone through OTA, minicamp, training camp and preseason without knowing who you are going to pick as your starter something is wrong. Hopefully he will name the starter after this 2nd preseason game but even then its been too long.

    Both are playing well with all receivers. I see your point but if you pick Vick you need a starter as a back up because Vick will get hurt.

    ONCE AGAIN RACISM AT ITS BEST LIGHTSKIN VERSES DARK SKIN THERE NOT QUESTION WHO THE BETTER Q.B. IS IF VIC HAD THE LIGHTER SKIN THERE WOULD BE NO Q.B. ISSUES IN PHILLY, WELCOME TOO A PLACE CALLED AMERICA LAND OF THE SOO CALLED FREE, HOME OF THE WHAT SUSPOSE TOO BE BRAVE………

      Not racism at all….I said he isnt the QB of the future. Vick is just a better player and although he hasnt tipped his hand yet as to how exactly he will run the offense Vick is probably a better fit. They are paying Vick 10 mil by the way.

      Omgosh!!!! Can people stop with the race thing!!!! Lets get this straight once and for all, if you are black, then do not let being black hold you down! If you are white, you are no better nor worse then any other person!! This race stuff has gone on way way to long!! And people, white and black both, use race as an excuse as to why they can not or are not able to do something! It must stop being an excuse, and start being something to be proud of, be proud you are different, be proud your white, or black, or any other race. And everyone just live without letting race hold you back. It’s so time to let this go now. If you can, then others will. If they do not, then fine, let them be the way they are alone. It’s better to know what’s in a persons heart, then to be lied to everyday to your face. Let people be who they are without this race card being played, and saying, he dont like me because im black, or white, or whatever color. Let people be who they are, Then know one has to fake who they are, and we all get along better. Because then we will truly see there is 1. Not as much racism as the news would love for you to think, 2. And what racism there is, is shared equally between all races. So please, for the love of Pete!! Stop calling RACISM every time something does not go your way, or some thing happens you don’t like! Because most of the time, it’s not racism, it truly is that the other person did a better job!! Ok, I’m done now!!

    I wouldn’t second guess Chip Kelly !

    The Eagles have an experienced group of receivers who are comfortable with both quarterbacks. There is no controversy in that locker room, I can guarantee that. If Vick is indeed the starting quarterback going into this season, as his slightly better preseason performances would tend to indicate, given his propensity for risky play and recent injury history, isn’t it a good thing that Foles is receiving this many first team reps? I don’t think any Eagles fan can feel confident about Vick’s chances of making it through a full season unscathed.
