To Win Or Not To Win - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz

...That is the question! Mike and I had our takes on this subject at BGN yesterday, and now it's Tommy's turn.

"I do agree with Kracz’s point that Kelly does need to find out about the young QBs. I don’t think you can force that, though. If you play the young guys when they haven’t earned the job, that can cause dissension with veteran players and it sends mixed messages to the team. After all, Kelly can’t preach competition and then give jobs to lesser guys just because they are young. If the season does get out of hand (and boy I hope it doesn’t), he can go that route."

The Eagles are featured in Banks' number 1 question: "Can the Eagles master Chip Kelly's up-tempo, fast-break offense and exit the preseason looking like an NFL version of the Oregon Ducks?" Also a short Peter King video on how Chip Kelly and Jimmy Johnson share a similarity.

Matt Barkley: I'm part of the QB race - Reuben Frank, CSN Philly

Don't count the rookie out. Barkley continues to say all the right things. Can he prove himself on the field?
