With Chip Kelly having agreed to become the next head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, one of the questions on everyone’s mind is what his hiring will mean for the future of Michael Vick. Before Kelly’s arrival, it was widely assumed that Vick had played his last game in Philadelphia. The Eagles can release Vick prior to Feb. 6 without having to pay him any money, but has he become a valuable piece of Kelly’s future plan? According to Eagles center Jason Kelce, most people on the team thought Vick would be gone before Kelly was hired. Now, they aren’t so sure. “That is the first thing that popped into my mind because I think, obviously, the outlook after the season was everybody thought Mike would kind of be out of here,” Kelce told Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo on ESPN Radio. “But yeah, you look at Oregon’s offense and obviously Mike kind of fits that mold a little bit. Now, whether we run the exact same offense that they run at Oregon, that’s still up for debate. ...

  • There is no doubt that Vick should be retained at Philly; he will fit in perfectly with the new system. He is still a great QB and is a winner. With Vick, Philly will win the NFC East ahead of the Redskins and Dallas. Virginia Tech, that perennial powerhouse in the ACC, put Vick on the map. Frank Beamer is the greatest coach in our lifetime. Even though he loses all of his major bowl games and has never beaten a top 5 team, he did put Mike Vick on the map. Greatest player ever in the NFL and greater than one time wonder Kapernicks.

Atlanta has healed from Vick days

It was snowing here Thursday, or at least this is what they kept saying on the news. It looked more like fat rain to my trained eye, not the least bit dangerous. This is the South, though, so the potential of wintry weather is breathlessly dissected tip to buzzer of almost every newscast in Georgia. This is too bad for a couple of reasons: 1. The Falcons with Matt Ryan and Tony...

Report: Jets To Hire Marty Mornhinweg As Offensive Coordinator

What To Expect: Chip Kelly Comes To Philadelphia

I Coach The Tarmac Where to begin? So much to dig into here, and so few electrons to spend on it. List time!   > Mike Vick will restructure or leave. But the first option is now actually possible. There is no scheme that can make Vick less injury-prone or get him back to the pre-age 30 wheels that would have made him downright fascinating in this offense. It's also an...

The New Age Quarterback

Maybe Daunte Culpepper and Michael Vick were just a little ahead of the times. They played in college and the NFL just early enough where coaches weren’t quite sure what to do with them as athletes. Michael Vick was severely underused at Virginia Tech as a runner; in two seasons as the starting QB he had just over 1200 yards. To put it in perspective, Johnny Manziel had over 1400...
