Today new Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley joined Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic, and discussed numerous topics among which, was the chance that he starts right away.
“That’s my goal,” Barkley told Missanelli, on the prospects of being the starter right away, after being selected in the fourth round of last month’s NFL draft.
As unlikely as it is in my mind that Barkley begins the season as the starter, certainly it is encouraging to hear that Barkley is working hard in OTA’s to potentially put himself in position to be the starter.
Missanelli, asked Barkley to talk about ho clear he has made it to fans and the media early on that he intends to be the starting quarterback, and Barkley simply told Missanelli that he, “Isn’t shy about wanting to be on the field.”
Again, as unlikely as it is that Barkley starts early on, he is saying all the right things and demonstrating a great work ethic that leads Eagles fans to believe that Barkley could potentially be the Eagles long-term franchise Quarterback.
