• Glazer: Vick Will Be Chip’s QB

    Summary of 13 articles · Updated Aug 9, 2013
    While Glazer is almost always on the money, don’t put it past Chip Kelly to pull a fast one and shock the media. Michael Vick will start for Philadelphia in its preseason opener against New England on Friday night because Eagles Coach Chip Kelly says it is Vick’s turn to go first in the quarterback rotation. So who is the quarterback? COACH KELLY: Mike [Vick] will start. Vick will start against the Patriots Friday night at Lincoln Financial Field. “I’ve never been in this situation before in my life,” Vick said in response to the news that he’ll start the preseason opener and Nick Foles will start the second preseason game, via Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com. At a deeper level, Kelly possibly believes the sense of competition will make the guy who wins the job even better, despite the reduced practice reps and preseason snaps.Or maybe he wants to showcase both guys because he knows that the runner up will be put on the trading block.If not, the No. 2 quarterback will quickly become intensely popular in Philly, if the Eagles struggle in September, particularly when Andy Reid returns to town with the Chiefs on September 19.
