07:02 AM ET 06.14 | Philadelphia is going where few teams have gone before with a variation on this theme: the quarterback controversy. The Eagles are the first with a quarterback controversy controversy, with the locker room divided not over who the quarterback should be but when the head coach should let them all know. The only thing of which we're reasonably certain is that, eventually, the one guy who isn't considered to be a serious candidate likely will be the one who eventually has the job. Rookie Matt Barkley, who entered the season as a potential first-round pick and who fell to round four due to ineffectiveness and injury, has agreed to terms on his rookie deal. The team announced the transaction on Thursday.

Apparently, the locker room doesn't think it will matter who the quarterback is, only when they find out, so that they can start leaking their feelings about it to the media.

Where is the outrage over this: You think Native Americans are not happy about a team called "Redskins?" How do you think the American Eagle feels? Why do you think they hide?

American Eagle, the regional carrier associated with American Airlines, had the worst on-time performance of any US airline in April. They're depressed about their namesake.

As a Brit, who can I complain to about the Patriots' name offending me? I think my distant relative died in that war and yadda yadda...

Sure, we did unspeakable things to you Yanks, but, y'know, feelings...

A few disgruntled egos a controversy does not make. And, yes, Matt Barkley, the new, bigger, Joe Montana, will be the starter for the first round of the playoffs, this year.
