    Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie subscribes to the theory that the fastest way to success in the NFL is to have a franchise quarterback. The only problem is that Lurie's not sure his team has one.

    In an interview with this week, Lurie said that finding a quarterback will be the team's 'No. 1 priority' going forward. Lurie also said that future franchise quarterback could be someone that's not currently on the Eagles roster.

    "We need someone to step up, whether it's an existing young quarterback or somebody we go out and acquire," Lurie said. "We know -- this is no secret -- quarterback is the [ultimate] position and the most important difference-maker."

    The Eagles have started two quarterbacks this season in Michael Vick and Nick Foles. The team also drafted Matt Barkley in the fourth round of the 2013 draft, but that doesn't necessarily mean any of those three are the answer.

    "Time will tell," Lurie said. "I think it's really wide open for those that are on the team and it's wide open for what our strategy might be if we don't have it. But it's a No. 1 priority. We've got to solidify that position in a really good way."

    I would love to see what Mariotta could do in the NFL under Chip Kelly. I think his talent might be awash if he goes somewhere less wide open.

    Why? So the home town fans can boo them when things go wrong? So they can run him out of town like they did McNabb. That fan base doesn't deserve a franchise QB.
