Shakespeare once said: “To be, or not to be, that is the question”. Right now Shakespeare doesn’t have a clue who will be the starting quarterback for the Eagles in the 2013 season, and neither does anyone else. Presumably one would expect a little indecision with a new incoming head coach, but five quarterbacks?

Heck, a week ago the Eagles had four quarterbacks (which was probably one too many) but yesterday it was announced that the Eagles added a fifth quarterback to their roster. Does Philadelphia even have that many empty lockers? (insert giggle here) It looks like the Eagles new head coach Chip Kelly will be starting the season off with a bit of drama.

The newest QB is G.J. Kinne; the Eagles nabbed him from the San Antonio Talons of the Arena Football League. It may be no coincidence that the offensive quality control coach for the Eagles Press Taylor was Kinne’s QB coach back at Tulsa. Kinne was a standout at Tulsa but as we all know college ball is a long way from the NFL.

The rest of the Eagles QB roster includes of course Michael Vick, (top contender ) rookie Nick Foles (said to be Chip Kelly’s 2nd choice) Dennis Dixon, (from Oregon’s quack attack AKA “pretender contender”) and Eagles veteran QB Trent Edwards.
