Michael Vick hopes Chip Kelly names a starting quarterback before training camp.

So does DeSean Jackson.

John Gonzalez doesn't think Kelly needs to make a hasty decision.

And guard Evan Mathis agrees.

"I haven't been evaluating our quarterbacks because I'm focused on the offensive line, but I really don't see the point of Chip Kelly naming a starting QB before camp," Mathis told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "This is an entirely new coaching staff with an entirely new offense, which isn't even fully installed yet. It's not rocket science. Whoever the coaches feel will help the team the most will win the job after proving himself in training camp and preseason."

Kelly has made it clear that the competition between Vick and Nick Foles (and Matt Barkley, et al) will continue into training camp. And that's the way it should be.
