    Eagles QB competition settles in for long haul

    A week after Chip Kelly lifted the curtain on his practices and Michael Vick had the slight edge on Nick Foles in first-team repetitions, the roles were reversed and the second-year quarterback was first up with the "ones."

    Foles took 21 snaps to Vick's 15 in seven-on-seven and team drills on Monday, and if it weren't for the great interest in the Eagles' quarterback competition, it might have felt a little silly logging repetitions in May with players running around in shorts.

    But what the snap count did reveal, if we're to trust that Kelly's closed practices weren't significantly different, is that the Eagles coach wasn't lying. Vick and Foles are even on the media's imaginary depth chart and the job is open and won't likely be won until the preseason.

    Go figure.

    That's what I've been waiting on. Thank you.

    And that's what's so telling. Unless Vick has a problem with health he will start week 1. I'd bet very good money to anyone that will be the case.

    Closed practices can't hide what is essentially a run-and-shoot offense. It's the Falcons Red Gun offense as well. SPREAD UM OUT, MOVE EM ON old school, typical red gun offense. But guess what?

    IF Vick is willing to sacrifice his pocket mentality and go back to running the ball, this offense will wreak havoc.

    This is fascinating because it's almost like 2007 again. Back then it was Petrino and his spread offense.
