Jeremy Maclin: Michael Vick’s Leading Nick Foles In The Quarterback BattleBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Thursday, May 9th, 2013
“Right now, you’ve got Mike going with the ones and Nick ‘sprinkled in,’ some reps here and there,” Maclin told McLane on Thursday.
When asked about whom he thought would be the starting quarterback when the season started, Maclin refused to make the mistake of answering that question.
“I’m not going to get caught up in all that,” Maclin said. “Obviously, you’re looking at a guy like Michael Vick that’s proven himself in this league a guy in Nick Foles who stepped in last year and had some success to a certain extent. Barkley – his college achievements are off the wall.
“So he has good guys to learn from. I’m pretty sure he’s going to have to embrace that and go through some ups and downs being a rookie quarterback.”
It’s not a surprise to me that Vick is leading the contest. I have felt all alone that he was the favorite to be the number one quarterback when the season started. The big question is going to be concerning his ability to hang onto the job.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly wants to have the read option as part of the offense, because the running game is going to be the key to attack.
