06:31 PM ET 05.20 | Nick Foles had the slight edge in quarterback repetitions with the first team. According to my math, Foles took 21 snaps and Michael Vick had 15. Vick had the edge last Monday. Vick took 21 snaps to Foles' 16 with the second team. Matt Barkley's snaps with the third team increase dramatically over last Monday.

Foles will win the job outright.

I would not be surprised if they went with Foles and Barkley and got rid of Vick.

I don't know where the last couple of voters come off supposedly knowing who's gonna start at QB for the Eagles but IMO Nelly's doing it the right way.

Vick and Foles are the two best QBs on the roster right now, obviously. Might as well see which one fits the system best.

What makes you think Barkley is any good?

And why would Philly eat Vick's contract?

Don't you realize how devastating dead money can be to NFL teams? Pretty sure Kelly and the Eagles wont cut Vick regardless of who winds up starting.

And whoever starts it's almost definitely not gonna be Barkley.

No. You got it right the first time. I am a voter.

I think Vick is consider somebody else's bad experiment and, if at all possible, the franchise wants to move on. I don't think Barkley will win the starting job. But I think if Foles shows that he can run the offense well and if Barkley shows that he can be a solid #2 with future potential, the team will get rid of Vick. I don't "know" anything (except for that) but it is my opinion.

Is Vick injured yet?

No. He has to have one extraordinary game so everyone can talk about how this is the year that he finally leads a team to the Superbowl. Then he will get injured.

Which one lets the dogs out?

I think in light of Barkley being a project, Foles being an unknown and there being no stand out QB in the draft, Kelly stuck with the evil he knows.

Hey Vick.. "Who let the dogs out?!.. woof..woof."
