Matt Barkley Is Taking This Whole Eagles Thing Pretty Well

When the Eagles traded up for the first pick in the fourth round, it was the shock of the draft. Or at least the Eagles draft. And as I wrote yesterday, I am ready to give this a shot.  And my colleague Jeromes Friend, thinks that the Eagles drafting Barkley, should scare Michael Vick. 


As for Barkley himself, if social networking is any indication, Barkley is elated to be a Philadelphia Eagle.






Barkley also reached out to Los Angeles Angels outfielder, and die-hard Eagles fan Mike Trout.


Barkley has also re-tweeted tons of Eagles fans welcoming him to the city of brotherly love.

Will Barkley work out long-term as the Eagles quarterback? I think Chip Kelly has a plan for Barkley, and we shall see how well the plan is executed in the coming years. But there is no doubt about it, Chip Kelly has brought a positive buzz back to Philly, in terms of the Eagles at least, and Matt Barkley seems to be enjoying his early time as a member of #birdgang.
