Eagles head coach Chip Kelly announces that Vick will start in Week One at the Redskins. No surprise.

Chip on Vick being starter for the season: "it's not a 1-game deal."

Kelly says Foles took news well, "Nick's a professional."

From what I'm hearing, it is extremely unlikely the #Eagles will trade Nick Foles now that Michael Vick has been named the starting QB.

They do have Barkley now so trading Foles shouldn't be completely out of the question.

Was the better guy during the games, he looked great. Have a feeling Foles will play this season knowing Vick's history, even with a healthy o-line/decision making.

Expected. Even so, a solid backup like Foles is a good guy to have with Vick's injury history.

This was going to be the announcement made even prior to Preaseason.

That way when the ship sinks, they have someone to blame.

Vick is 13-of-15 for 199 yards and a touchdown in the first two pre-season games.

He had an INT aswell on a Hail Mary play.

For comparison, Foles was 11-of-14 for 96 yards and one interception, also rushed 3 times for 23 yards and a touchdown. They both played well, but the offense looked more dangerous with Vick.

About time. It's been clear for quite some time that Vick is going to give Chip Kelly's Eagles the best opportunity to win football games.

Its good to know that Nick Foleswalker is taking this professionally while Vick Fett gets the first crack at the starting job.

Chip cares about winning NOW. He will go with the guys that can do that for him. It doesn't matter if they're younger or older.
