"As of right now, my mindset is that I'm the starter," Vick said while signing autographs at a charity event in Stone Mountain, Ga. "I've been a starter in this league for 11 years. That's just my confidence and the way I feel. I'm excited about this season. It's going to be great."

All this G. Smith talk.

What happens to Vick if we take Smith?

Does he go McNabb on us and pout and ask for a financial apology?

I'd expect both Vick and Foles to have the mindset that they will be the starter.

The biggest problem is that they have very different styles, so whilst Kelly can get the best out of either of them, he can't get the best out of both of them at the same time. I'm wondering if the choice of starter will be made to get the offense used to how next year's QB pick will play, which would favour Vick because if Foles does well there is no need for that pick.

Get your tomatoes ready ... I'll be the first to say that Foles will win the job. Kelly will modify his offense around him.

That would give us two pouters at QB as Geno is reportedly prone to sulking and pouting on the sideline. We sho can pick em.

I've repeatedly pointed out that a turnover-prone, inaccurate QB who can't read defences is not a good fit for what we've read about Kelly's offenses with their emphasis on quick decisions and ball retention. And used that as the basis for my continuing support of Foles starting ahead of Vick.

Kelly has made it clear that his number 1 priority in a QB is high intelligence and number 2 the ability to take the lessons learned from the practice field into the game. Foles with his size, sturdy build and pocket composure just seems like the natural option for Kelly to build around. The kid is reputed to be ubersmart and showed a lot of ability to learn and implement for a rook last year. Kelly knowing him and studying him so strongly for their college games should have told him a lot about Foles potential. Nothing against Vick but he is a different type of QB even with speed aside, and he is an injury waiting to happen.
