When Michael Vick put it out there to the media that he would like head coach Chip Kelly to name a starter before training camp, he claims he had no idea that the story would become big news. A player publicly imploring their new head coach to make a personnel decision, what's the big deal? The big deal, it seems, is that it was perceived to challenge the authority of a coach who's fresh on the job, not a good way to start one would suppose. "I was very surprised because I didn't try to say it in a derogatory way where I felt like coach should make a decision or there's pressure on him to make a decision," Vick said at Jeremy Maclin's football camp, via Philadelphia Magazine's 24/7 Eagles blog. "I was just asked a question, and I answered it the best way that I could. But coach is totally involved in our team and what we've got going on and what needs to be done. "Like I said, we're all going to sit back and make sure that we do exactly what he asks us to do, regardless of who's out there on the field." When Vick's comments went public, Chip Kelly was on the phonre with him the next day. "Coach is just so straightforward," Vick said. "After the first four or five words, you already understand and know where he's coming from. So we talked the next day, and I sent him a text and he called me back and we talked and that was it... Like I said, everybody on that football team respects coach Kelly and likes what he's been able to accomplish so far." "He's grabbing the attention of everybody on our football team."
