Who plays quarterback in 2013? It is a hugely important decision to be made, and as Chip Kelly ponders the possibilities, everyone else has an opinion ...

Let HC Kelly hire his coaching staff before we start making personel decisions.  I like Kelly answer we do not start playing football til September then and only then will we know who and what style of offense will be implemented.  There are a million and one decisions that will be made between now and when the 2013 games start to matter.  Take a deep breath people all in good time.

As long as Chip's first order of business is to send MM packing...start fresh.

The media and fans just want to hear that Kelly will fire Vick and end Vick's career in the NFL. Then after that they will tolerate 2-3 seasons losing seasons because Foles is just a nice kid. Please don't compare him to his draft classmates like Luck, RG3, Wilson, and Cousins. Just because he's tall, don't compare him to Cam Newton or Colin Kaepernick. Our main goal is seeing Vick die a million deaths.
   Dear Coach Kelly, if you want a great relationship with the media and fans, fire Vick now and say very negative things about him. Then we will set the bar very low for you. We will allow you to go 6-10 the first season, 8-8 the next, and then at least a wild card spot on your third season. If you keep Vick, then you're in the Hot Seat! Then we'll set the bar real high! You have to win the Superbowl your 1st season or you will be fired!!!!

Many people say EJ is a good fit for Chip's style. I didn't see enough of EJ to make a decision on him.

I don't support Egypts post about DS. I have been as harsh on DS as any sometimes but don't direct your frustration with the team on DS...I'll try and take my own advice.

EJ would be a good fit for Oregon O that Kelly ran he is big mobile strong arm QB..... But truely it all depends what type of O Kelly is going to want to run will depend on the QB we get..... If he is going to run an O like the one at Oregon Darron Thomas again I believe will be in the QB mix being his former QB and all

arg7822 - It is funny you mentioned that because Kelly already stated that Foles is as good a quarterback as any that came out of last years draft and possibly smarter at offensive comprehension than most of them! I guess we will see when quarterback decision time comes.

Jets can't find a GM...along with an OC and DC. You would think Rex would try and bring in Rob. Rob interviewed with Rams..today.

3D....Johnny Football would he be able to last in the NFL would be my question......He isn't much bigger then MV and he likes to run alot. But other then that concern I think Johnny would be successful in Kelly's O

arg, foles will be fine. i really think he will do a much better job having a solid oline in front of him, giving him time to throw. the skills are there. he didnt break all of brees' records in high school and every QB record set at arizona because he sux. give him time to develop, and i think he will wind up being the best QB in that particular draft. yea, u can say RG3, luck, wilson, and kaepernic. and say foles doesnt belong in the same catagory, but they all had something foles didnt. a better then decent offensive line. lets see how he does in his 2nd season. u know damn well that Kelly is gonna be running the ball 1st, throwin 2nd. and with the stable of RBs we have, whew, i cant wait to see the PA pass actually make the defense bite. no more of AR/MM opening a game up with PA pass. i ranted yesterday pretty hard about the aquisition of Kelly, because i wanted gus. im givin kelly a chance and getting myself excited about next season. IT IS A GREAT DAY TO BE AN EAGLES FAN!!!!!!!!GO BIRDS!!!!!

1wrangler It's funny how Kirk Cousins came in and won at least two games. I want the Eagles to win the division and become Superbowl Champions instead of a feel good story.

He beat Bama...and did you see him beat Oklahoma in the bowl game. He looks strong...and tough.

I can't believe Rex kept his job. He has the look of a lame duck coach even if you were his brother

3D....MV looked amazing in college as well that why he would become a future #1 overall pick.... The NFL is a completely different beast. I don't think Johnny Football would run the ball 201 times in the NFL like he did in college and if he was used more like Russell Wilson at the Pro level I think he could be successful and last. If used like Rg3 or even Cam Newton his rookie season I don't think Johnny would last long in the NFL
