I bet Vick is happy.

It'll be interesting if nothing else in Philadelphia.

I'm not sure how the current Eagles quarterback situation will suit Kelly. Vick isn't durable and has been turnover-prone. Foles doesn't appear to fit the offense Kelly ran at Oregon.

But Kelly may very well tailor the offense to fit what he has, then pray they can trade up for Johnny Manziel in 2014. Of course, if they're in position to make that pick, by then Eagles fans will already be calling for Kelly's head.

I think he's definitely got the pieces to run a similar offense to the one he ran in Oregon.

Vick- Although he's not very adept at the hurry-up offense, he is one of the most athletic QBs in the NFL.
McCoy- Great all-around running back very much suited for Kelly's type of offense.
DJax and Maclin- both speedy receivers that will stretch the field. The only concern is Jackson and his attitude.

I'm sure he'll be looking to pick up Barner in the 3rd, but it looks like he's got some good pieces already. That Oline is gonna need some major work though.

It'll be much tougher in the NFL, where the talent is pretty much a level playing field.

Just ask Steve Spurrier.

Thumbs down Re: Eagles hire Chip Kelly as head coach

I mean he's been great at Oregon and in the college level. I'd definitely have him at the top of my list of I was at an NCAA school, but he'd be toward the bottom of my coaching list in the NFL. I'd probably still interview him and possibly hire him if I couldn't get a single one of my other targets, but I'd have tempered expectations. I read something somewhere about him running an offense similar to the Patriots offense.

I guess if he runs a Pats offense like I've been reading he could see what he has in Nick Foles (he should be familiar with him) and if he's doing an Oregon offense then he can use Michael Vick until he can find a suitable replacement.

If he's the offensive guru that he's reported to be then he should be able to tailor his offense according to the personnel that he has. I'm not sure his Oregon offense will work in the NFL. He's going to need a good experience coaching staff under him if he's going to have a successful career.
