There's been lot's of questioning, and now the players are requesting that a starting quarterback is named before training camp begins. Player's Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson have come out and spoken that it's time that a starting quarter back is named. I feel there's more insecurity with Vick because he's aging and is going to turn 33 at the end of the month. Meaning that the clock is ticking and Vick could possibly be the odd man out. Just because Kelly bought Vick back, that doesn't guarantee that he's here to start.
Kelly wants to see what he has with all quarterbacks on the roster. The insecurity is that Nick Foles has been taking more rep with the first team offense than Vick has been recently, which may give Vick the idea that time for him is running out. With DeSean, there's not too much urgent insecurity going on as it may be with Vick, but DeSean may feel insecure because he's been running plays with the second team instead of the first team.
Vick's concern is probably if he's going to to stay and remain an Eagle or be a backup. Vick may not take kind to the idea of possibly being the backup to Nick Foles or Matt Barkley if one of them is tabbed the starting gig. So, if Vick is going to cause disruptions on the field or locker room due to not being named starting quarter back, Vick may likely get traded if there are any takers. There should be many, because lot's of teams need quarterbacks.
DeSean's concern is, he may feel he may be too good to be working reps with the second team., and has cleared that with Chip Kelly last week. But is it really time to name a starter? I mean they haven't even put on pads and equipment and people are already clamoring for a starter to be named.
Don't you think Kelly needs more time? He is a rookie head coach after all. I'm sure Kelly will find his starter with due diligence. Sure, knowing you starter now would ease thee worries with the players and fans, but you want this plan to work to perfection. I'm not expecting a crazy year where we make the playoffs, but you want to rebuild and right this team in the direction it needs to be successful.
