Is Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly going to start rookie Matt Barkley over the dynamic Michael Vick?

Michael Vick should again be a soaring Eagle this autumn.

The Philadelphia Inquirer bizarrely contends rookie Matt Barkley could “get the nod” over Michael Vick to start under center for the Eagles against the Washington Redskins in Landover on September 9.

Unlike Vick, the 22-year-old Barkley was personally chosen out of USC by new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly with the 98th pick in April’s draft.

With the sullied Trojan fully recovered from a Grade 3 AC joint separation, beat writer Jeff McLane believes Kelly would prefer “Barkley’s accuracy, ball placement, and ability to throw on the run.”

The greatest quality a passer can possess is “accuracy” and the 6-foot-2, 230 pound Barkley displayed pinpoint control with the pigskin over four seasons in one of La-La Land’s rougher ghettos.

Regardless, the 32-year-old Vick is the ideal man to operate Kelly’s unpredictable and rapid no-huddle offense.

As the greatest rushing quarterback in NFL history, Bad Newz Kennels’ mastermind is surrounded by dynamic playmakers and can again dominate on the gridiron if protected in the pocket.

Losing the MVP race by a pube two seasons ago, Vick should “get the nod” over Barkley and fly as an Eagle in “The City of Brotherly Love” this autumn.

Regarding personal achievements, expect Michael Vick to become a serious candidate for another Comeback Player of the Year award in 2013.
