The Philadelphia Eagles have a huge question at quarterback.
The team has had a quarterback controversy under new head coach Chip Kelly. But, if the season started today, it appears like Michael Vick would be the starter.
Vick, who looked poorly when camp started several weeks ago, has finally gotten command of Kelly’s complicated offense that is supposed to be high octane read option attack. Vick has reportedly took the lead over Nick Foles in the past several days.
There was speculation from a lot of the Eagles beat writers that Foles would beat out Vick. But that is not the case now.
Vick was the starter for the opener last year under Andy Reid, and was the starter, before he was injured. Once he was injured, Foles came in through the rest of the year up until the season finale.
In the season finale, Vick played poorly, and Foles would replace him at the Giants.
Last year, Vick played in 10 games and completed 204 passes for 2,362 yards. He threw 12 touchdowns to 10 interceptions.
Foles, on the other hand, played in 7 games, with 6 starts. He completed a 161 passes for 1,699 yards. He had 6 touchdown passes to 5 interceptions.
