Michael Vick believes he can still be a successful quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, and with Chip Kelly‘s offensive genius he’ll have a chance to prove just that. Vick agreed to a restructured one-year deal to stay in Philly on Monday, and he anticipates that the relationship will be a complete success. Kelly’s read-option offense is somewhat similar to the offense Vick ran in his final season with the Atlanta Falcons in 2006, and the dynamic quarterback believes he’ll be just as productive too. “In 2006 I ran for 1,000 yards — and it wasn’t hard,” Vick said, during an interview with ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning on Tuesday. “I feel like I still can do that.” Vick ran for just 332 yards in 10 games last season and hasn’t come close to that 1,000-yard mark in his four seasons since returning to the NFL. Vick will also be 33 by the start of next season, which could be a factor in breaking more of those unstoppable runs. Then again, Kelly’s offensive scheme offers so many opportunities for an athletic quarterback, and Vick seems to be buying into that system. “I could tell that he was innovative, and that’s what it’s all about in this league,” Vick said. “You have to be able to change up from week to week and I think Chip will be able to do that. I think I can handle that.” If Vick ran for 1,000 yards next season it would both earn him a new contract and help the Eagles get back atop the NFC East standings. But even more important will be Vick focusing on a much smaller number: 16. Before Vick can reach 1,000 yards on the ground or reestablish himself as “one of the elite quarterbacks in the league,” as he referenced on Tuesday, he needs to play an entire 16-game schedule. Vick hasn’t played more than 13 games in any of his four seasons in Philly, and his durability continues to be a major question. So, before he starts worrying about numbers and records, he may want to focus on staying on the field first. Have a question for Luke Hughes?
