So basically...we are the team with the most QB controversy IMO. We have Vick, Dixon, Foles and Barkley. I'm not even gonna count Kinne (lets face it...he's probably not gonna be our QB). So who do you honestly believe wins the job at the start of the season?

BUT FOR AN ADDED TWIST!!!

Comment on who you:

1) WANT our QB to be day 1 (not counting in who you think will, but who you hope will win it)
2) Hope gets cut/traded

I personally believe it'll be Vick, but for some reason....i just can't seem to help but root for Barkley to win this thing. and i think both Vick AND Dixon are cut and they bring in a veteran backup.

Vick then Foles whether due to play or injury.

The only chance Barkley has of Starting day 1 is god forbid Vick and Foles both get injured. Otherwise he will sit and push Foles for #2. Dixon has as much chance as Kinne IMO, none!

Vick will start. He has the best legs and arm in practice. He'll look like a football god with the red jersey on in training camp. He's also the experienced leader and default leader. If Vick isn't the day 1 starter, something horribly went wrong or either Foles or Barkley did something tremendously right.

I am not even going to consider Dixon or Kinne. Both are trash.

When Vick gets injured (let's not kid ourselves here, dude's glass) it'll be Foles who steps in. If Foles sees success, then he will keep the role. Barkley is too inexperienced to just throw out there, it makes sense to put Foles out who has already been in a similar situation last year.

If Foles falls flat on his face, though, I could see Chip letting Barkley get some playing time.

The next summer will be Foles v. Barkley, unless both show that they are terrible. Vick isn't even in the picture next year.

Of course, though, personally I want Matt Barkley to be the day 1 starter and let him get all the field time he needs so by the time we're a few years into the Chip Kelly era, he will already have seen about as much as there is to see as an NFL QB, sans playoffs.

Foles, I really do believe Foles has it to lose.

I think Vick is starting and rightfully so. The scheme should fit him, furthermore Kelly stated several times that he'll tweak the scheme to fit his players. It's his last chance to prove he still belongs in this league and he'll be supported by a running game and the best skill position offensive play makers in recent Eagles history. Hopefully Chip & Pat will mix in a fair share of play action fakes - finally! If he succeeds then I don't think he gets a long term contract due to his age and his inconsistencies, so he'll take a big contract from someone and the Eagles receiving a 3rd rounder compensatory pick...

Foles has a decent chance to be traded to one of the teams with an injured starting QB - for a second round at least. Until then he's gonna be the 2nd string QB and play in case Mike is gets injured.

Barkley is going to be groomed for next year and beyond.

Dixon is cut and has a decent chance to re-join the team in case Foles is moved.

Kinne is not worth discussing, he's just a camp body.

Foles will start.


Vick has sucked at best in preseason and practice in his career.

I think Foles wins the job and is the day 1 starter.

Like Phire said, ideally I'd want Barkley to get a lot of playing time this year. But I have a feeling that we'll see at least a little bit of him this year.

If Foles goes in and totally does not impress, then Vick would likely take over. Then he'd inevitably get hurt or fumble away his job (pun intended) leaving it to.......
