12:32 PM ET 01.15 | Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley entered the NFL with some high expectations for himself, but he struggled greatly when he got the opportunity to take the field during his rookie season. Despite throwing four interceptions and zero touchdowns in his two appearances, Barkley will have the opportunity to earn the No. 2 role if the team releases Michael Vick in the offseason as expected. G.J. Kinne, who has never thrown a pass in an NFL game, is the only quarterback on the roster other than Barkley and starting signal-caller Nick Foles. If Barkley can beat out Kinne, he will earn his role as the primary backup. Luckily for Barkley, he appears to have Eagles head coach Chip Kelly on his side. In a recent interview, Kelly took the opportunity to sing the praises of his backup quarterback.

"Eagles" and "high" do not belong in the same headline after loss to Niners.

Yeah, because using a 4th round pick on a kid who a year earlier may have been a top 5 pick is stupid.
