DeSean Jackson says Eagles need to know who their starting quarterback is

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was asked which quarterback has the advantage in Chip Kelly's competition for the starting job.

Eagles' offices getting a makeover, too. Hopefully this wall fills up soon.
Veteran Michael Vick and Nick Foles, in his second NFL season, have split the starting snaps in the noncontact practices.

“So far, I don’t know, it has been kind of even," Jackson said on the NFL Network. "Vick and Foles have been switching off first team and second team. So it is the same thing with them.

"I have been hearing some things about Vick saying that he wants to know. 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 Foles or Vick, I think they would both do a great job and we will be ready for the season."

Kelly has said he wants to see what the quarterbacks do in shoulder pads before making a decision. That won't happen until training camp begins July 25.
