As the football season continues to inch closer and closer, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situation is one of the hottest topics being discussed here in Philadelphia. Questions arise on if and how Michael Vick will fit into this new Chip Kelly offense. At age 32, Vick is getting a bit closer to the end of his career, so this season, he has to make the most of it.
In all 4 of his years as an Eagle, he is still yet to play all 16 games. In 2010, Vick had a breakout season. He played in 12 games, completing 233/372 passes, with a 62.6 completing percentage. Vick threw for 3,018 yards and 21 touchdowns. Since then, things went downhill. Vick began turning the ball over, throwing a combined 21 interceptions in 2011 and 2012.
But this year, things are different. The Eagles are now a refreshed, newly energized team. Philadelphia made some nice additions and brought in a new head coach, Chip Kelly.
With Chip Kelly’s new fast-paced, unique offense, and his totally new play-making ability, this just might be perfect for Vick to succeed.
Vick and many others are very excited about this new journey that is soon to begin. And from what I have heard, there is all positivity, not negativity. Brent Celek on the new offense said, “it’s insane.” LeSean McCoy says it’s like “a freakin’ track meet.”
Will Vick have another 2010-type season? It is yet to be seen, but so far, it looks like this will be a great season for both Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.
