02:29 PM ET 05.10 | There will be a lot of positions contested at the NovaCare complex in the coming months, but none will be more closely followed that the QB battle. According to Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin, Michael Vick is your early leader. "Right now, you've got Mike going with the ones and Nick 'sprinkled in,' Maclin said Thursday. So Vick is taking the majority of the first team snaps, which is a pretty good indication that he's the early leader for the job. This isn't really a surprise given that he's the most experienced and well paid QB on the roster, but it's worth noting that he's got the inside track so far.

Two quarterbacks with very little success in the NFL....competing against one another for the starting job.........whatever!

Vick was misused by Reid's blind following his system without adapting to Vick's skill set. Kelly will not force any player into fitting, but adapt to the skill set. One thing that means is teaching Vick when to slide, when to sprint out of bounds. If Vick wins the QB job, he will have learned macho QBs don't take on linebackers. Lose the macho, get to the playoffs in good health.

Vick was misused

The only time "Vick" and "misused" appear in the same sentence should be when you're talking about the dead electrocuted and drowned dogs this psychopath left in his wake.

Even Foles makes him look small. Vick is not 6' and he is no 205lb. like they have listed him for years. And that is why he is always hurt. Has no one figured that out yet? He can't absorb those hits....

Still will be entertaining to watch the Eagles offense and see them soar or do a floptastic.

You are aware that Michael Vick does not know how to slide, right? They've been trying to teach him that since he came in the NFL......he'll get hit hard and often.
