Michael Vick in Trouble Again?

23 Jul

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick job may be in jeopardy.

The Eagles open training camp with a depth chart of Michael Vick as the starter, Nick Foles as the second string quarterback, and the rookie from USC Matt Barkley in the third string role. However, the backups don’t see their role this season in the shadow of Michael Vick.

Nick Foles told reporters on Monday that he thinks he will be the Philadelphia Eagles starter this season. He went on to tell PhillyMag.com that “I don’t think we play this game to sit on the bench. We play it to play, and I’m here to play.”

Matt Barkley comes into Philly with high expectations. He like Foles, feels that he has a chance to surface as the starter once the preseason schedule is complete.

No matter who wins the job they will have to impress the eyes of a highly critical attention to detail head coach. Chip Kelly won’t start the season with a quarterback that can’t live up to the attention to detail that he requires his quarterback to have. Vick has a few weeks to prove that he is the guy.
