The Philadelphia Eagles new head coach Chip Kelly is quickly becoming a legend in Philly even before coaching his first NFL game. We hear how great everything is going and how excited players are to be blessed with the opportunity to play for the chosen one. Even veteran QB Michael Vick is praising his new boss, and learning new things as if he were wet behind the ears. "Chip told me how to run with the football the other day," Vick said, via Phillymag.com. "He taught me how to run with the football and how to carry the football, and I think it's something that you just have to work on." "The other day, I broke out in the pocket, and the first thing Chip told me was to tuck the football," he added. "So I showed him how I was running with it, and he looked at it and he knocked the ball right out of my hands. And he was like, 'Hold it like this.' "And what he told me felt comfortable. I had a tighter grip on the football. That should secure that problem as long as I work on it. Like I said, you're always a work in progress, and even when you think you know it all, sometimes you don't. The people who feel like they know everything, they don't." Is there anything this man can't do?
