PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Many have said that the quarterback of the future for the Eagles is not currently on the roster. Nick Foles’ performance against the Cowboys may have driven that point home even further. The official odds agree with the public sentiment.
According to Bovada, the quarterback with the best odds to start game one of the 2014 season for the Eagles is not Michael Vick, Nick Foles or Matt Barkley, but “Someone Else” at 7/4.
Michael Vick is the next most likely behind Mr. Else at 2/1, Matt Barkley at 3/1, and Nick Foles is the longest shot at 4/1.
Michael Vick will likely start this weekend’s game against the Giants, assuming recovery from his hamstring injury continues to progress.
The 2014 NFL Draft is thought to be quarterback heavy, with as many as seven or eight taken in the first round.
