Chip Kelly dropped some big news today, naming Mike Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins and the foreseeable future. He probably could have waited another week to make an announcement, but Vick was clearly ahead of Nick Foles after the last preseason game and that was unlikely to change, so why wait?

Other players were still finding out hours after the fact it seems, but reporters were able to get a few of them to comment on the result. Here are some of their reactions.
