Is Michael Vick cracking under pressure?

There are a lot of questions, heading into the 2013 NFL Season. Especially for the Philadelphia Eagles. OTA's and practice have been intense. The biggest question of all is, who is going to be the starting quarterback? Is it Michael Vick? Is it Nick Foles? Is it Matt Barkley? or is it Dennis Dixon? Mike Vick must be feeling the pressure if he is requesting or should I say demanding Chip Kelly to decide who the starting quarterback is before training camp begins. Vick's impatience with Kelly may hurt him. It may cost him. I can understand where Michael is coming from. I think Vick believes, since he's a veteran and he has the most experience out of all quarterback on this roster. That he's entitled to be the starter. I can understand, because this is the NFL. This isn't High School, College, or Pop Warner where you can take up all the time in the world to toy around with players to see what fits. In the NFL, you must work ahead of time to be prepared. I guess in Michael Vick's mind, he thinks Chip Kelly is toying with him. I can see why Vick would be nervous and feel the urge to rush Chip into making him the starter because he's threatened by the fact that Nick Foles has been taking more reps with the first team. I guess that in Vick's mind, he should be the starter because he used to be so spectacular that you see highlight reels of him making plays every week on ESPN with his legs, and he was the biggest threat at one point in terms of being a scrambling quarterback with a juggernaut, and a former pro bowl quarterback that the quarterback spot should be handed to him. Well, when Kelly was first asked on the situation he said it was an open quarterback competition, and that's just what it has been. It's been intense, and Vick feels the pressure from Foles taking more reps with the first team. There's no definite answer to who the starter will be, but expect to know come the beginning of training camp.
