Report: Nick Foles Ahead of Mike Vick in QB Battle
I think the fact the Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly hasn’t named a starter for the upcoming season yet isn’t a good sign for Michael Vick.
When the Eagles surprised a lot of people be re-signing the embattled quarterback to a 1-year deal, many assumed he would be the quarterback for at least the foreseeable future as the Chip Kelly era was ushered in. Factor in Vick’s play-making ability with his legs and Kelly’s infatuation with mobile quarterbacks it seemed a match made in heaven.
Foles got the ball out quicker than Vick, was generally more accurate, and is putting receivers in a better position to get yards after the catch.
Nick Foles circa July 2013 looks far better than Nick Foles circa 2012. In fact, I was so thoroughly unimpressed with Foles at the 2012 Senior Bowl.
