Eagles | Michael Vick will have to change in new offense
Wed, 22 May 2013 15:58:11 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, who held onto the ball for an average of 3.07 seconds last year, will likely have to change in order to be successful in head coach Chip Kelly's new offense. Kelly, while at Oregon, preached that his quarterbacks were urged to get the ball out of their hands in 1.5 seconds. "I think there is a lot more to Michael," Kelly said back in February. "I think quarterbacks are a byproduct of their experience. But to sit here and say I understood the system that Michael's been in whether he's with the Falcons under Coach (Dan) Reeves or here, that depends on the system that you run. Some of the systems that they run they don't ask him to get the ball out quick. Do I think he can get the ball out quick? I think he's got an unbelievable release. It's up and out and it's quick."

Vick has had success in his career in waiting for plays to develop down the field, but the new offense will be a stark contrast to that. To help him become ready for the new season, Vick spent time simulating running an up-tempo offense consisting of read options and even added some muscle to his frame. Vick also did some boxing training to learn how to avoid taking big hits. The early reports out of practice have been positive for Vick.

Vick will have some competition in training camp from Nick Foles, but we all expect this to be Vick's job to lose. He gives the Eagles and Kelly the most athleticism in this offense, if he can adapt to his new role. The work that Vick has already put in lends optimism to the chances that he can do this and become successful. How successful this offense can be against opponents is another story altogether, though. For now, consider Vick an intriguing late-round selection that has the potential to be a very good backup QB.
