Site predicts Mark Sanchez to back up Nick Foles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Mark Sanchez will battle Matt Barkley for the backup quarterback job behind Nick Foles in camp this summer. But ESPN says to "put your money on Sanchez" winning the No. 2 spot, suggesting that the Eagles wouldn't have even signed him if he was going to be their emergency quarterback. 

Matt Barkley loses shot at backup job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley had a realistic shot at backing up Nick Foles -- until the team agreed to terms Thursday with Mark Sanchez. Now Barkley, a fourth-round pick out of USC last year, figures to compete with G.J. Kinne for the third-string job.

Barkley played in four games last year, completing 30 of 49 throws for 300 yards and no touchdowns. He tossed four interceptions and lost a fumble.


Matt Barkley healthier entering Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley had a shoulder injury that "bothered him more than he let on last summer, and he's healthy now," reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. While the Eagles remain high on their 2013 fourth-round pick, Barkley "needs a strong spring and summer for the team to believe he can be a trustworthy backup quarterback," the report said.

The paper expects Michael Vick to leave via free agency. Barkley threw four interceptions and no touchdowns in spot duty last year.


Chip Kelly still high on Matt Barkley


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Eagles rookie Matt Barkley threw zero touchdowns and committed five turnovers in three games. But coach Chip Kelly remains high on Barkley, who figures to be the No. 2 quarterback if Michael Vick leaves via free agency.

"Matt was awesome," Kelly said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I'm excited to get a full offseason with Matt in here to really get a chance to work with him because I think he's got a skill set that's exciting when you see him, how the ball comes out of his hands, the decisions that he makes, and that's part of this whole deal."

Matt Barkley gets a chance to play Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley saw some time during mop-up duty against the Raiders.

Barkley came in for Nick Foles with 9:23 left to play. He led two drives, but went three and out on both drives. Barkley finished the game 2 of 3, with 13 yards. He knelt twice to finish the game on his third drive. 

Barkley will take on the Packers Week 10.


Matt Barkley to serve as backup QB Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Eagles rookie quarterback Matt Barkley will have to wait a little longer to make his first career start. Eagles coach Chip Kelly made the announcement Wednesday quarterback Nick Foles will return from a concussion to start Week 9 at Oakland in place of the injured Michael Vick (hamstring).

Barkley has come off the bench the last two games, replacing Foles in Week 7 vs. Dallas and replacing Vick in Week 8 vs. N.Y. Giants.


Matt Barkley comes off the bench again Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Eagles rookie quarterback Matt Barkley came off the bench for a second straight game during a 15-7 loss Week 8 vs. N.Y. Giants. Last week vs. Dallas, he replaced an injured Nick Foles (concussion), but on Sunday he was called upon to replace an ineffective Michael Vick, who struggled in his return from a hamstring injury.

Barkley entered the game late in the first half after Vick struggled to move the offense. Barkley was quite effective on his first drive, completing 6 of 7 passes for 55 yards and marched Philadelphia down to the Giants' 2-yard line. Unfortunately, Barkley coughed up the football in the red zone after being sacked and the Giants recovered the fumble. 

Barkley led no scoring drives, and the Eagles got their only score on a botched punt by the Giants. Barkley had a chance to tie the game, but he threw an interception at the Giants' 40-yard line with 11 seconds left. Barkley completed 17 of 26 passes for 158 yards.

If Vick and Foles aren't ready to play by Week 9 at Oakland, then Barkley could be called upon to make his first career start.


Matt Barkley has ugly NFL debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley saw the first regular-season action of his NFL career Week 7 vs. Dallas after Nick Foles left the game in the fourth quarter with a head injury. Unfortunately, Barkley didn't have a memorable performance, as he threw three interceptions in a 17-3 loss.

All of Barkley's three drives ended with interceptions. In fact, he was picked off on his second NFL throw, but it was called back because of an offsides penalty. Six plays later, however, Barkley did throw his first career interception.

It took him seven plays on his second drive to throw his second interception. Finally, Barkley was leading Philadelphia on a scoring drive late in the game, but his 12-yard pass intended for Jason Avant was picked off by Brandon Carr in the end zone.

Barkley completed 11 of 20 passes for 129 yards. He finished with a 35.2 quarterback rating.

The rookie from USC might make his first career start Week 8 vs. N.Y. Giants, if Foles (head) and Michael Vick (hamstring) aren't healthy enough to play.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Eagles announce QB rotation for Thursday's game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2013) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Monday a majority of the starters won't play during Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets, which includes starting quarterback Michael Vick. Kelly said Nick Foles will get the start and Matt Barkley will also play.

Eagles name Michael Vick starting quarterback


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/20/2013) Eagles coach Chip Kelly has named Michael Vick the team's starting quarterback for the regular season according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The move isn't much of a surprise given how effective he's been through a pair of preseason games. Vick seems to have a good grasp of the new offense in Philly, completing 13 of 15 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown with 20 rush yards on a pair of carries. He's been intercepted once. 

Nick Foles will likely back him up with Matt Barkley ranked behind Foles on the depth chart. 


Is Michael Vick ahead of the competition in Philly?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/2/2013) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has begun to look like the best among the three passers in Philadelphia thus far, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. 

On Thursday, Vick was the no-doubt-about-it best passer on the field, hitting DeSean Jackson for a pair of touchdowns while dominating first-team reps (24 to Nick Foles' 13). 

Per the report, it's clear Matt Barkley is a "distant third" in the competition. 

It's also worth noting the leadership role Vick took in the wake of Riley Cooper's racially insensitive comments this week. Vick spoke to the team and to the media about it, something typical of a starting quarterback. 


Matt Barkley, Dennis Dixon well behind in QB race


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2013) While Michael Vick and Nick Foles continue to split reps for the Eagles' starting quarterback job, rookie Matt Barkley is "a distant third," reports the Newark Star-Ledger.

Since the start of training camp, Vick and Foles have split all the first and second-team reps. Barkley has done all his work with the third team. Dennis Dixon has appeared for less than a handful of snaps per day.


Michael Vick kicks off Eagles quarterback derby


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) The Eagles opened training camp Friday with Michael Vick getting the first shot under center with the starters in team drills. A little later, Nick Foles had his chance to go first in 7-on-7 drills and team drills according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Rookie Matt Barkley primarily worked with the third string. 

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported from Eagles camp that the starting quarterback job is Michael Vick's to win or lose. Per Paolantonio, Vick looked the best, but later added that Eagles general manager Howie Roseman intimated Vick would be on the block or released if he wasn't the starter following training camp.  


Nick Foles: 'I'm here to be the guy'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) Bring it on. That’s the attitude Philadelphia’s Nick Foles is taking to the quarterback competition with Michael Vick and Matt Barkley.

"I have all the confidence in the world in my ability ... I still respect the players around me, and I know what they're capable of doing,” Foles told Philly.com. “But at the end of the day, I'm not here to be a backup. I'm here to be the guy.”

Foles started six games as a rookie last year, throwing for 1,699 yards and six touchdowns with five interceptions.

Barkley, a fourth-round pick out of USC, believes it’s a three-man race.

"The coaches have said that it's kinda there,” he said. “My mindset is that I'm in it, and I've got to do everything to prove to the coaches that (the job) is mine."

Vick did not talk to the media Monday.
