HERE'S WHY VICK WILL BE OUR STARTER.
On a daily basis, he walks through HQ and on the walls he sees pictures of McNabb and Jaws and Cunningham. He knows his system is high powered and innovative. Even when towed around by the QB equivalent of a Toyota Camry, it has brought him glory. Fame. It has brought him this far.
But Chip has never had a McNabb.
He's never been behind the wheel of a pro, franchise-caliber, muscle car.
You know Chip Kelly wants the feel of such a muscle car. The curiosity to see what it can do if he supercharges it with his system, HAS to be there. Eating at him.
That's what Michael Vick is. He's a former #1 overall. He's the first QB to run for 1,000 yards in a season. He's a beat-up 1970 Dodge Charger RT. He won't last forever. But Chip sees the old racer is in better condition than the world thinks; and Chip thinks he can get at least one more race against the world, and maybe even the clock itself out of his old racer.
Chip Kelly is no fool. He knows he can't turn back the clock. He knows Vick will never be showroom again. He'll never be right off the line again. He has dings in his chassis and his axles bear the wear and tear of more races than he can truly remember.
But the driver? He believes.
And that old racer still believes.
And the man in the stands still WANTS to believe.
On a daily basis, he walks through HQ and on the walls he sees pictures of McNabb and Jaws and Cunningham. He flexes his fingers around the keys in his pocket and notices...there is still plenty of wall left to be filled.
