Rookie Matt Barkley told CSNPhilly.com that he plans on competing for the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback job.
“Well, they’ve both done great things, and Michael has had an unbelievable career,” Barkley said referring to Michael Vick and Nck Foles
“I’ll get to know them those guys, and I’m sure from what I’ve heard they are outstanding men, but you come in knowing that you have a job and they’re trying to take that job as well, so it’s competition, you know. Competing is what it’s all about.”
Barkley says he plans on making Kelly’s offense fit his skill set.
“You know, I’ll make it fit,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what plays we run, I’m going to find a way to help this team out, and I know Coach Kelly has a way of working things out as well in terms of how he schemes and how he calls plays, so I’m not worried. I’m just worried about the here and now and what I can do right now.”
I’m really intrigued by Barkley because there are so many people that think he’ll be a good NFL quarterback and a lot of people who believe he’s a career back up.
