10:49 PM ET 06.06 | Michael Vick caught a huge break when the Philadelphia Eagles decided o give him another shot with the team after an abysmal season in 2012 -- a season so bad it cost Andy Reid his job. But the laughing and good feeling has apparently worn off and Vick is not only saying he doesn't like splitting first team reps at Eagles camp, but he also wants Chip Kelly to name him the starter before training camp, according to Geoff Mosher of CNSPhilly.com. An instant reaction to today's ramblings by Vick are that he's not really in a position to make demands. After a comeback 2010 campaign that saw the quarterback return to MVP style form, he fell off hard in 2011 and even harder in 2012 to the point where he was benched and replaced with Nick Foles in the middle of the season.

Talk about a diva!

Vick being Vick. While he should be grateful for being on a team, he is going to play the diva card. This isn't 2001. Vick has killed dozens of dogs, served years in prison, been on the brink of bankruptcy, and has been the end point for 3 head coaches. If I'm Kelly, I reduce his 1st team reps even further.

It's hard to wake up to reality some times. He's lucky to have what he has. The winds of change are trying to tell him he's not the player he was or the player he thinks he is.

Backup at best next season...not in Philly though.

Maybe Philly should just cut him now and save all the drama for whatever team picks him up?

Delusions of grandeur.

What's that, a sense of entitlement?

Make him earn it. 2010 is the only good season Vick had as an Eagle. And it's because he had to work hard to earn it. After that he got lazy and slumped off.

Just what I was thinking...

Didn't Tony Dungy talk the Eagles into hiring him ? From what I remember no one else in the NFL was seriously looking at Vick. He needs to be grateful that he even got a second chance much less a contract that made him one of the top 5 paid players in the NFL.

Shut up and earn it!

Vick should kneel and thank God that he's not serving life for being a sociopathic dog torturer, electrocutor, drowner and murderer. Then he should kneel and kiss the Eagles front office's a** for signing him and re-making him a multimillionaire. And, finally, he should ****.

One more thing, FN Interns. When did Vick start using "Micheal" as his first name?
