07:36 AM ET 04.18 | Only a few days into this spring's workouts, Michael Vick may be helping court a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia. [Vick] indicated Wednesday he has no problem with Chip Kelly saying Vick and Nick Foles are engaged in an even competition for the Eagles' starting quarterback job. The problem might lie in getting Vick to believe he could ever lose such a contest, after 3 years as the starter here. "Honestly, I just look at it as it's still my team, still my job," Vick said during a session with reporters following the second day of the extra minicamp granted new NFL coaches. "I think that's the mind-set that you've got to have. I believe in myself and my abilities, and I believe on the guys on this football team."

Glad you still believe in your abilities. That makes one person in the city.

tell him to go back and look at the film from last season, the plays where everybody and their grandmother knew the blitz was coming and he still didn't know to check down!

if you cant read the defenses and or turn the ball over a lot you probably should not be an NFL QB. sorry Mike you were and are one heck of an athlete but that's just it...ATHLETE...Not one heck of QB or football player...

To ensure that he starts, they need to bring back Vince Young as the backup.

He's always been an average QB with great wheels but as we've seen time and again, that will not take a team to the ultimate prize. You need an elite QB.

Exactly!

Didn't do much in Atlanta; done nothing in Philly; and he's as fragile as they come; expect more of the same in 2013-2014. But it's "still my team"..... Whatever!

last year he had several turnovers in the red zone. one I remember, he fumbled the ball on the one yard line while trying to score from 3 yards out. Has not been that clutch QB. When that happens it is hard to get your team to believe in their QB. Chip Kelly will be looking for other options.

Gianna. although Jean`s remark is terrific... on saturday I got Audi Quattro after having made $8923 this-past/4 weeks and also $10 thousand this past month. with-out a doubt this is the most-rewarding Ive had. I actually started 6 months ago and pretty much straight away began to bring in minimum $84 per/hr. I follow this great link,, kep2.com

That's crazy , I also know an Ebony at my local strip joint that makes 84 dollars an hour not including Vip clients back stage.

Dead on. Not enough between the ears to be anything more than he already is.
