According to the Allentown Morning Call's Jimmy Kempski, Nick Foles is "in the lead" of the Eagles' quarterback derby because Foles "outplayed" Michael Vick at OTAs and minicamp.
Kempski acknowledges Vick's superior physical tools, but reports Foles "got the ball out quicker" at spring practices, "was generally more accurate," and put receivers in better position to rack up yards after catch.
Kempski also insists Foles looks "far better" than he did last spring, even demonstrating improved velocity on intermediate and vertical throws. If Foles carries his momentum into August, the Eagles could wind up fielding far more of a traditional "pro-style" offense than anyone might've imagined from a Chip Kelly team.
