Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh were among those from NFL teams on hand for Virginia Tech’s pro day Wednesday.

Quarterback uncertainty can be tough for a team this time of year. Just ask Michael Vick, who plead, very publicly, with coach Chip Kelly to cut the Eagles’ quarterback contest short for the good of the team. Does Vick have a point? No team entering camp with a quarterback controversy in 2013 was particularly great on offense in 2013. With a prolonged battle at the most important position on the field, the other ten offensive starters only stand to lose valuable practice time. That problem only worsens if there’s a clear-cut favorite at quarterback on the roster right now. The Eagles have a serious quarterback competition, but the same can’t be said for other squads around the NFL. With that in […]
