    How the hell could they be worse. Maybe it was he coaching stop jumping to conclusion.

  • AZ_Eaglesfan

    If Vick assumed the starting Job was his because he took a MASSIVE pay cut, then he really just doesn’t understand how the NFL works. The guy had a 100 million dollar contract and lost a lot of it, that does not point to the idea that he would be starting.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    nothing to do with anything. but of the 3 QBs in play here. who has the best preseason for the Eagles. scores the most points. most accurate. least INT’s. most TDs. 3rd down conversions. real command of offense. whats everyone think?

    • GEagle

      St. Nick…but I expect Barkley to flash some game like Foles did in his rookie preseason..Dixon should also do ok with the 3rd string…Really hoping we aren’t wasting meaningful preseason reps on a QB who isn’t even capable of staying healthy thru the preseason lol

          mike got hurt last year. only 7 attempts in preseason. he needs a good preseason this year. 7 attempts is not going to keep him the starter.

  • GEagle

    dying to find out what the ceiling of Byce Brown is…
    Stylistically, which top back does he compare to? Maybe a faster Frank Gore?

    • atb124

      Don’t know yet. He got a serious case of the outsidies after his big games last year. Started trying to bounce everything to the outside and hit a homerun. That’s not an issue I imagine Gore ever having.

      I hope we’ll see a different guy this year, and need to wait until we see him before we start making comparisons. I’m hoping for a litlte Terrell Davis though.

    • hillbillybirdsfan

      Maybe the number fooled my brain and skewed my observation but I often was reminded of Herschel since he runs a bit upright and has that straight-line speed.

  • Bob A

    Too many people are used to the ‘Andy Reid message control paranoia’ where everything a player said needs to be parsed , covered with a fine tooth comb, and then the coach would call the player in for a stern talking to about a relatively mild remark. That’s not Chip. Chip will let Jackson, Vick and everyone else feel any way they would like to feel about the whole “who’s the starter?” thing. Then he’ll do what he wants. That’s why Dennis Dixon has told the breathless media with a chuckle that he’ll make his decisions about starters around September 5, he knows what’s going to happen from his time in Oregon and doesn’t spend lots of time obsessing about it.

  • BrickSquadMonopoly

    ????????????????

  • cliff henny

    wish my neighbors/associates were like Jason, the Eagles can have a couple Ray lewis’ sprinkled in there. talent trumps

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    Jason is a talent too. don’t get it twisted

  • knighn

    Jason Avant is talented too. However, most teams would rather have a guy like Terrell Owens (in his prime) or Randy Moss (in his prime). You don’t want a team of “Terrell Owens” and you don’t want a team of “Jason Avants” (#3/#4 WRs). You need a team that is a balance of talent and character. Character with insufficient talent just gives you a good Bible Study group, not a football team.

    EDIT: now if you want to give me a team full of Brian Dawkins, there would be no complaint. Talent + Character + A little bit of crazy = Awesome = Brian Dawkins.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    agreed. well said. but yeah I know that. im just real impressed by this mans character and attitude. even when hes telling the fans to stop booing. hes honest. and he owns it. not like MV like Geagle says

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    obviously talent wise id want a wr like a TO and Moss. but you always need talented guys like Jason on your team. to accent those better talents like a Jackson

  • GEagle

    I Ike your football Pythagorean theorem equation of Football awesomeness…
    ..

  • knighn

    Reading this I realize that I, personally, have come down a little to hard on Vick in recent time. I genuinely don’t believe Vick has much football left in him. This is due to his age, his experience, his injury history and his tendency to turn the ball over. On top of all of this: some guys just hit a point in their lives where they lose their “edge” sometimes. Putting it another way: Donovan McNabb never had two years in a row (for the Eagles) that were as bad as Vick’s last two years for the Eagles… and the Eagles parted ways with McNabb when he was 33.

    All that being said: Vick might legitimately give the Eagles the best chance of winning right now (with his overall skill set – yes: that might be hard to believe based on what we have watched the last two years). However: if Vick’s overall abilities are not significantly better than those of Foles, Barkley or Dixon, it is time to move on. The Philadelphia Eagles are not ready to challenge for a Super Bowl in the next two years. Vick, as good as he still might be, is not Tom Brady. Even with Tom Brady I’m not sure that these Eagles could challenge for a SB in the next two years. When an NFL football team reaches the special level of BAD that is 4 or fewer wins, it takes a while to truly come back from that (and contend), even with a new coach and a new QB.

    So… where does that leave us? Whether or not Vick truly gives the Eagles the best chance to win right now, it is time to move on from him. He will not be here in two years when the Eagles might truly be ready to contend. If there is any chance that Foles, Barkley or Dixon might be viable NFL players (even if they might only be viable backups) it is time to start figuring that out now. Like Chip Kelly says, “With a quarterback, it’s like a tea bag. You don’t know what you have until you put it in hot water.” We’ve already got a pretty good idea what we’ve got with Vick, and that bag is pretty well used up. It’s time to find out what we’ve got with Foles, Barkley and Dixon.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    right on. time to build for the future and establish a foundation for success for years to come. Vick may not be part of that. plain and simple. he may have a hand in it at the start but #9 and #2 are hopefully to be the ones laying that groundwork for playoff pushes, division titles, and superbowl runs. and then maybe that guy at qb isn’t here. as a fan im banking on the now with these 2 kids getting better.

  • GEagle

    The on,y skills that matter for a QB, who obviously has the physical tools to play in the NFL are: FBI(football intelligence) and Accuracy….which have never been confused with Vick’s strength….but you basically posted my exact feelings on the situation. If you aren’t legitimately competing for a Super Bowl, then the ONLY thing we should be doing is building towards winning a SB in the future…MIKE VICK realistically doesn’t fit either of those options, so WTF is the point. We could be using this season for two things:
    1) Finding out if Foles or Barkley have a shot at being the Longterm answer
    2) If they are the long term answer, start giving them the valuable seasoning one gets through game time which is the prerequisite for eventually being ready to compete for a SB..

  • GEagle

    I have had that feeling since the day Andy Ried made it clear that Foles was not available in a trade…Like you, I don’t so much post what I want, I always try to blend my oppinion with how I’m reading between the lines of what the Eagles will actually do…

    And when I read between the lines, it does not bode well for Vicks future in Philly. I could easily be wrong, just calling it how I interpret it

  • knighn

    As a fan, I’m not even banking on the kids getting signifcantly better. I just want to see what the hell they are. If their ceiling is “NFL backup” let’s find that out as soon as possible. Then let’s move on from there.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    im very hopeful. especially with Barkley

  • GEagle

    EXACTLY!!! Drafting a QB in round 1 is probably the biggest decision an organization has to make. So it’s probably a good idea to find out as much as possible about your young gunners before we get to the 2014 draft(which for me happens to be more important than the 2013 season)…..We already have two young QBs. I’m not trying to invest in any more until we know what we have in the two that we got

  • theycallmerob

    roger that. Let’s get all the cards out on the table before the next offseason. 2014 will be critical for Kelly to know what he has, and then go get what he needs.

  • cliff henny

    for avants talent level, it’s great he’s also has high character. nothing worse than middle of road guy that’s a freaking headache (que whole Cinci team). it’s amazing what people will put up with (or not) depending on talent level.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    true story..

  • GEagle

    So true…..that fan incident was probably the only blemish on Avant…but he damn sure owned it and kept it real with us. Much repeat. if Avant isn’t an eagle I really hope he gets traded to the broncos or Pats….he deserves a chance to compete. Class act!

  • JofreyRice

    eh. I think Tim offered up the best explanation I’ve read so far: Vick just said what he thought at that moment–which may no be what he thought a day, or a week later. I don’t think he’s particularly polished, and was feeling the pressure of being in a QB competition for the first time since probably high school, so it just kind of boiled over.

    I agree with what folks are saying about Vick–that even in the best case scenario, he’s not any kind of long term answer, and is still shot through with fundamental problems as a player. I’m OK with him winning the competition, but it will be hard to set aside my skepticism after these past two seasons. Certainly, none of this escapes anyone at Novacare–so if Foles can’t beat him out, it would not be a good sign for Nick. It wouldn’t be the death knell of Foles’ career, but it might be tough to take a huge step backwards, and still progress from where he was last year.

  • GEagle

    I actually like both young QBs, and can’t figure out who I have more hope for.

    because Foles was given very valuable game time as a rookie, the game will undoubtabley slow down for him in year two, and year 2 as we all know has historically been the year a young QB makes the most improvement and you start to get a clue as to who he will grow up to be. I think you can find out so much more about our young QBs by playing Foles in year 2, then by playing Barkley as a rookie…and for that reason, I’m so hell bent on seeing Foles ahead of Barkley at this point in time..

    if we finally have the right coach and infrastructure in place to really take a stab at building a team that can contend for a Super Bowl, then when you are coming off a 4 win season, nothing is more important in year 1 under a new coach then the discovery Phase. it’s imperative that when this season is over, Chip knows exactly who can and who can’t be part of an Eagles future under him. Everyone’s contract is basically structured as a tryout…So I’m not trying to play any veterans that have no shot at being here and helping us compete in 2013 over a young player.
    ..
    Trent Cole has been just as classy of an Eagle as our beloved Avant, and he is a pretty significantly better player than Avant…But as much as I like Trent Cole, I’m not ok with benching bRandon Graham. Actually let me rephrase that, I don’t really care who starts, but I’m not ok with watching Graham play limited snaps like he did last season. Nothing Cole could do for us on the field this year is more valuable than Finding out exactly who Brandon Graham is, and if he can be a big part of the new age Eagles….So while I love Trent Cole, its more important to find out about B-grizzle….and I feel this same exact way about every veteran that probably won’t be here in 2015…
    ..
    guys like Jason Peters, and Mathis, I lay off of…because there is actually a chance thAt they are still here in 2015 helping us compete…but guys like Vick and Cole, they can’t keep us from being able to make the right decisions about important young players going forward. By the end of this season, it’s crucial that Chip Knows who can’t be here any longer, and exactly what we need to AQUIRE to get us where we need to go

  • GEagle

    as someone who thinks Foles has earned seeing what he can do in his sophomore season(nothing more), I still can’t disagree with you…As much as I dread having to watch Vick for another season, there is nothing more important than installing a culture of accountability, where playing time is EARNED.. Since Chip opened himself up to this by bringing Vick back and opening up the competition, it’s very important that his new players see that he is keeping his word…So if Vick performs significantly better than Foles, then as much as I hate to say it, Vick has to play..

    Like you said, If I’m so down on Vick, and I expect 2nd year QBs to take a drastic leap in improvement, what does it say about Foles if he can’t beat out a QB I think so little of?….
    ..
    With all that said, if it we up to me, I would trade or Cut Vick before Camp starts so we don’t even have to worry about this. But I will say, my belief is that the Onus is on Vick to significantly out play the young kids..If Foles or Barkley are even close to Vick in terms of performance, then there is NO WAY Vick should be the QB…when you have a decade of playing experience, and supreme physical tools over your young inexperienced, 3rd and 4th round competition…If you even allow this to be a legit QB competition, THEN YOU LOSE!!!

    Blow the doors off the QB competition, or find a new city!! that’s where I’m at lol

  • Richard Colton

    #7 is going to be your starter. His wins will be attributed to his amazing QB play. His turnovers will be blamed on the O-line. His incompletions will be the fault of the receivers. The losses will be Chip Kelly’s responsibility (he’s got to do a better job). Besides, everyone knows a QB needs 2+ years in CK’s system to be successful.

    Welcome to your Mike Vick nightmare.

  • atb124

    That’s just mean. But you forgot about the part where the qb competition in neck and neck through TC and preseason. Foles will throw the ball better, but Vick gets the nod because of his greater speed running the IZR/OZR.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    u aint kidding

  • GEagle

    isn’t it too early in the day to do this to me? Lol….

    in the infamous words of one of the biggest pimps of the 90′s, that’s right Folks, Mr. uncle Jesse himself, the great Jesse Catzopolis…..”HAVE MERCY!!!!”

  • GEagle

    EXACTLY ROB!!!! Nothing is more important in 2013 then finding out what you have? What you need? And who you simply can’t keep in this locker room!!!! the 2014 Offseason is CRUCIAL, I repeat CRUCIAL for us going forward, and we need to know what we have in order to make the most educated decisions

  • Richard Colton

    I will assume that if Vick is the QB in ’13, it means the coaches don’t see what they need to see in Foles. That has to make our QB of the future Barkley or ’14 1st rounder, right?

  • theycallmerob

    It’s like Maclin said (pulled from Sheil’s other article):

    “I think that’s real. I think the guys who are going to screw up in
    training camp, not going to do what they’re supposed to do, are the guys that you don’t want on your team.”

    I like Kelly’s style- treat them like grown men, and let the Aaron Hernandez-type players weed themselves out.

    After all the stink about losing Blount for the year re: the Punch Heard ‘Round Boise, it revealed LaMichael James to the world. Next man up. I love it.

  • theycallmerob

    And even then, I’d hope Barkley sees a little game time at the end of the season if either Vick gets hurt or the team is tanking (not to wish injury on the man, just being realistic). It will take a lot to trade up for one of those QBs next year, and I want to make sure that value is truly needed.

    I’m a fan of Mariota, Hundley, and Bridgewater so far (though need to see more of Teddy than just the BCS game)

  • GEagle

    Yes, that would most likely be the case…It’s not impossible for a young Qb to have a bad 2nd year, and then get it together later in his career, but It’s not something you can count on. When a rookie QB gets significant playing time, the game slows down for him in year 2, so it’s problematic if you don’t see a decent level of improvement in year 2..Then when you go from playing with a practice squad to playing with some serious talent, your expectations of improvement have to increase…Foles doesn’t have to look like a probowler this season. Even if he proves to be our franchise QB, there will be some rough patches, but at this stage he has to continue to show improvement. that’s what matters…..I would start Foles in Washington and give him the reigns expecting to see improvement but understanding that it won’t all be smooth sailing. I would guarentee Foles 11 games NO MATTER WHAT!!! But if he hasn’t shown me anything by the bye week, I’m giving the reigns to Barkley the last 5 games, making sure he gets enough rookie experience so that in 2014, I can expect him to make a drastic leap in play(like I’m expecting out of Foles this season), and hold him accountable to it!!!

    ideally Foles takes the reigns, runs with it, remains our QB and Makes Barkley have to grow into a heckuva QB to ever compete with Foles for playing time….but I do think after last season, Foles has earned ATleast 11 games without worrying about being benched to show how much he can improve….Best case scenario Foles lays 16 games and sneaks us into the wild card round…I would feel really good about our future if that’s how 2013 plays out

  • GEagle

    It’s certainly exciting and like everything else Chip does, makes a ton of sense….You can’t be babysitting grown men, it never works…It’s year 1, the roster of the future is far from set, I think it’s a brilliant idea to force players to be accountable and give them plenty of rope to hang themselves. We can’t let players fool us, need to find out EXACTLY who they are?.what better way to do that then give them plenty of opportunities to either screw up, or prove to be responsible and professional
