Found January 17, 2013 on Philly Sports Muse:
What a whirlwind the past 24-48 hours have been for the Philadelphia Eagles. On Tuesday, all eyes were on Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. By midday on Wednesday, Bradley was forgotten when word broke that Oregon coach Chip Kelly had reversed course and decided to come to the NFL and, specifically, to Philadelphia. Now that the question of who the head coach is settled, many more follow. How will Kelly’s high octane, high scoring offense translate to the NFL? Does the Kelly hire make it more likely that Mike Vick will be with the Birds in 2013? One thing’s for sure: when hiring a new coach with no NFL experience, the assistant hires are absolutely essential to get right. – CSNPhilly Along those lines, speculation about who could be the next defensive coordinator–Georgia DC Todd Grantham. – ProFootballTalk While speculation grew that Howie Roseman was the reason that Philadelphia was having difficulty landing a head coach, he was apparently THE reason that the Eagles got Ke...

Report: Chip Kelly meets with Michael Vick, his future still uncertain

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly met with quarterback Michael Vick on Friday.   But there’s been no resolution to whether Vick will be released this coming offseason or not.

Eagles C Jason Kelce: We thought Michael Vick was done until Chip Kelly hiring

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.

The Eagles Stumble with Chip Kelly hire

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...

Nick Foles Bad Fit For Chip Kelly's Offense

The signing of Chip Kelly as the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles may not be good news for fantasy owners who were planning on keeping quarterback Nick Foles on their dynasty rosters.Fantasy Spin:Foles had a nice season as the replacement for injured Michael Vick, but at 6'5" and 245 lbs he is not the type of quarterback Kelly has utilized in his wide open Oregon offenses.

Report: Jets To Hire Marty Mornhinweg As Offensive Coordinator

Adam Caplan reports that a source has informed him that the Jets are expected to hire former Eagle Marty Mornhinweg to run their offense. This would be a pretty interesting hire given that Mornhinweg’s name hasn’t come up in recent weeks a potential option.

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...
