For whatever reason, Chip Kelly doesn't seem to be a fan of naming a starting QB. All of his intimations are that Nick Foles will be his guy. Nick is winning games and taking great care of the ball. That's what Chip values at the position.

So pretty much everybody agrees that Nick Foles should be the guy. And while Chip may not want to say it outright, Mike Vick didn't have a problem saying it during his appearance on 94 WIP last night.

“In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who’s been playing so well?” Vick said.

“I’ve been in this stage before, and I know what it’s like. I understand the position that this team is in, and the one thing I never want to do is be a distraction or put our team or our coaches in a position where they feel like they’re not doing the right thing or I feel like they’re not doing the right thing.

“I trust what’s going on, I enjoy being a part of it, I love the game of football in general. So it’s important to me to be there in support and be ready if my name and number is called again.”

Knock Mike all you want for his inability to stay healthy or maybe his poor decision making at times, but one thing I think he's excelled at is being a great teammate.
