As an Eagles fan, you should feel refreshed that Chip is making players earn a spot with the 1's.
The fact that no player will simply be given a starting job is smart. This team was 4-12 in 2012. There were no bright spots on this roster last season. The total transformation of the Philadelphia Eagles is exactly what this fan-base has been waiting for.
Looking at these QB's, no one player stands out as the favorite to lead this club. This competition is necessary. What did Vick show us last year?? ; that he still can't hold onto the ball? that he still has troubles diagnosing the D? that he still hasn't learned to slide? that he will not last a full season if he can't stay upright??
Where in last season's performance did he show us that he deserves to handed the keys to this offense?
Chip Kelly is putting Vick and Foles through the ringer for reason. He is waiting for a man to step up and show that he is the undeniable leader of this squad. This won't be done on in the OTA's or film room, this competition will decided on the field,,, in full pads..
I couldn't respect that more!
Chip,,, you had me at "BIG PEOPLE BEAT UP LITTLE PEOPLE"
