Eagles’ Michael Vick Says He Can Still Rush for 1,000 Yards

USATSI_8276159_154224518_lowresAfter 14 seasons with head coach Andy Reid at the helm, the Philadelphia Eagles decided to part ways with the longtime coach and head in another direction by hiring Chip Kelly formerly of the Oregon Ducks.

With Kelly taking over on the sidelines, the team has decided to retain veteran quarterback Michael Vick for another season. Vick’s contract worth $100 million is now only worth $10 million for one season with 2013 potentially being the veteran’s last year in Philadelphia.

Now that Vick will get another fresh start in the NFL with the Eagles, the four-time Pro Bowler believes he can still be a force to be reckoned as a mobile quarterback. Vick is confident another 1,000-yard season rushing is possible in Chip Kelly’s offense via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk:

“In 2006 I ran for 1,000 yards — and it wasn’t hard,” Vick said. “I feel like I still can do that.”

It still remains to be seen whether or not Kelly’s style of offense will work on the NFL level, but Vick may benefit from Kelly calling the shots from the sidelines if the offense does become a success next season. Vick is the ideal quarterback for this fast-paced system that will be implemented in Philadelphia and may be able to reclaim his starting role with the Eagles as a result.

In 10 seasons in the NFL, Vick has only eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark once with 1,039 yards in 2006 with the Atlanta Falcons. Vick’s highest rushing total for a season since his final year with the Falcons was in 2010. The versatile quarterback rushed for 676 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games with the Eagles in 2010 leading to becoming a legitimate NFL MVP and another $100 million dollar contract.

With the Eagles only committing to Vick for one more season, it will be make or break for Vick if he can beat out Nick Foles for the starting job under center. Kelly has let it be known Vick will have to compete for the job with Foles as the new head coach evaluates the team heading into the 2013 season.
