Michael Vick is apparently not the only one who wants a starting quarterback named before the veterans arrive at training camp on July 25. According to DeSean Jackson, "the team" also wants Kelly to name a starter.
"I have been hearing some things about Vick saying that he wants to know," Jackson said in an interview with the NFL Network. "At the same time, the team wants to know too. We need to go into training camp prepared and know who is going to be our starting quarterback. Whether it is [Nick] Foles or Vick, I think they would both do a great job and we will be ready for the season."
It's wishful thinking, though. Don't expect Kelly to name a starting quarterback anytime soon. Kelly has said he's not in a rush to make a decision, and he wants training camp and the preseason to bolster his evaluation.
Vick and Foles have been splitting first-team reps. Whether one outplayed the other on a particular day, or overall in camp, was based on what one was looking for during practice. Jackson, at least publicly, did not think either had an edge.
