Top Roster Battles Heading Into Training Camp


Hey all, please check out my take on the top battles heading into training camp:

http://sportsfansnews.com/nfl/2013-philadelphia-eagles-five-roster-battles/

Two things that I struggled with while writing this piece:

First, I really think Nick Foles should be the starting QB. The events of the past week, and Vick's comments, have led me to question Vick as starter even more than before. But something tells me Vick will be given a chance and will either fail or get injured early in the year, so Foles will be the starter for the majority of the games this season regardless of whether he is named the starter out of camp. Am I on to something? Is Vick's attitude going to ruin his chances of becoming the starter?

The second thing I grappled with was the Vinny Curry situation. I can't wrap my head around why Kelly and company would think Curry is best served at 5-tech. Does this mean they don't think highly of Thornton/Geathers? Why wouldn't they try him at SAM/Predator first? I have yet to meet a person who thinks this is a good idea or has any grasp of the logic here. I welcome your suggestions.
