PHILLY, WHIP YOUR VICK OUT!!!

Posted February 12, 2013

MICHAEL Vick may have lost a step or three, but as far as mobile QB's go he's still top 5 in the league (RG3, Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Vick in that order in rushing yards).

Chip Kelly should be able to work with that. If he can't, and he's still going to need a mobile QB, he's up ***** creek, because better isn't out there barring a monster trade.

Back in March in my "The 12" series, http://www.yardbarker.com/forum/3/57/discussion/the_12_9_get_our_vick_out_and_go_deep/10412725  I wrote that we had to get back to rolling Vick out, and using the short pass to defuse the blitz. A lot was made of how last year Vick wasn't being sacked by D-linemen, he was being sacked by LB's and DB's. It was the blitzers.

If Kelly decides to put him on the move, Vick will be back to doing what he is best at. Not standing in the pocket working on his Dan Marino impersonation, but blowing containments and warping coverages.
