10:24 AM ET 08.18 | The wait continues for the Eagles to name their first-string quarterback - and not just for the season opener on Sept. 9, but also the third preseason game next Saturday. Coach Chip Kelly said after Saturday's practice that his staff will meet Monday to determine how to distribute playing time against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The third preseason game is traditionally the one in which starters play the longest. Michael Vick and Nick Foles split starts and playing time in the first two games, so the third game could provide a clue to Kelly's thinking. "They need to continue to play at a high level, and I think when you continue to put them in different situations, that gets a chance to express itself," Kelly said.

Enjoy it. It might be the only time Chip's quiet all year.

The only season Vick played well in Philly (2010) was when he had to earn the job.

This is the best way to keep Vick motivated.

Forget Vick. Forget Foles. Start Barkley!

Waiting for this to play out is like waiting for Star Wars Episode I (Phantom Menace). You think it's going to matter but, really, it wasn't worth the wait and the star of it is a spoiled punk.

I'd let him watch how NOT to play QB before throwing him to the wolves. Philly fans aren't known for their patience.

It's all Vick/Foles. I haven't heard anything about how Barkley is progressing. It would be interesting to know how he's coming along.

What a coincidence. Whoever will be starting QB will be quietly benched.

Barkley will start by week 10.
