06:56 AM ET 07.18 | DeSean Jackson tried to avoid it, but he ultimately decided to offer his opinion when asked who will be under center for the Eagles. "In my opinion, honestly, I don't want to be put on the spot, I know y'all gonna do me like that, but Michael Vick's got a lot of confidence in himself. He's been there, going on 12 years in the NFL, I think he'll get the job," Jackson said during an ESPN interview. "Nick Foles is a great, great talent coming in from Arizona, actually a Pac-12 guy. He has the hype, he has the skills as well too. Going into camp, I think Michael Vick will probably be the starter, but we still don't know. I think Chip Kelly's gonna keep everybody honest and keep everybody open."

Since when has he not given an opinion?

And won't he be surprised when Barkley starts?

I still wish some linebacker would break this gutless punk in two.

I believe he's picking a loser to say the least.

"12 years in the NFL" for Vick? Not really. More like 10 years with a two year hiatus.

With Vick as his QB, Jackson will be lucky to touch the ball 3 times per game.

Nothing wrong with the comment by Jackson, but I still dislike the guy immensely. Cockiest s.o.b. I've ever seen step foot on the field, running backwards 30 yards and holding the ball out. If ever anybody deserved to have their bell rung, it's this clown.

"12 years in the NFL"...and he is average at best!

I am sure Chip Kelley could care less who Jackson thinks should start at QB. Vick showed last year his inability to hold onto ball inside the 10 yard line. he was constantly turning ball over in critical situations. would not be surprised to see him released during preseason.

It would surprise me. Foles ain't the guy, and Barkley is untested and unready at best.

I'd be willing to say, though, that this is Michael Vick's final season, one way or the other.

the eagles have 3 other QB with out vick. the Eagles have Barkley who figures to start. then they have as backups a choice between Nick Foles, Former Oregon Duck Dennis Dixon and C.J. Ginne

Eagles will not contend until they put their best QB out there - Matt Barkley.

I think you're right. Vick has a lot of miles on him and I think his future is in the past.

This will all be decided by Vick's week 4 annual hospital stay. Broken bone? Concussion? Crushed solar plexus? Only the gods know for sure.

Did Jackson predict how many games he would be able to play in ?

More important, did Jackson pick an NFC East winner?

If he says "The Eagles," then we'll know he's delusional.

Can't tell which Story got old quicker: Jets QB or Eagles QB.

And we're not even in Training Camp yet...

The Eagles should have everyone associated with the Team to learn 5 simple words "Let the Process Play out".

That would be the end of the Story... Maybe :-)
