Chip Kelly: If Healthy, Michael Vick is the Quarterback

After leaving in the second quarter of the Eagles eventual 36-21 win lead by Nick Foles, it is natural that there are questions on Michael Vick’s status as the team’s starting quarterback.

Head Coach Chip Kelly told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, that there isn’t any competition.


Vick exited the game having run for 79 yards, but struggling to find any rythym passing, as he was just 6-14.

Foles on the other hand, was 16-25 for 197 yards and to touchdown passes.

The easy way for Kelly to make the choice on Foles against Vick, would be to air on the side of caution by sitting Vick next week, and seeing if Foles can duplicate his performance against the Buccaneers. If Foles performs well again, Kelly could then change his mind, much like Andy Reid did in 2010, to give Vick the job in the first place.
