The Michael Vick/Chip Kelly bromance goes on its first real date tonight on national television when the Eagles head to the DMV to face Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris and the Washington Redskins. And according to Michael Vick, expect the Eagles offense to be faster than anything professional football has seen in quite some time. Possibly ever.
Without question, Vick is the leader of an Eagles team entering the season as one of the more intriguing squads in football from both an X’s and O’s standpoint and the aftershocks of the whole Riley Cooper debacle. In an ESPN Sunday Conversation with Lisa Salters, Bad Newz’s finest (Newport News, VA) briefly explains the dynamic of Kelly’s offense which will be on full display in just a few hours.*
Vick also goes on to break down why having to “compete” for the starting job was perhaps the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him heading into this season. Eagles/Skins kicks off at 6:55 p.m. on ESPN followed by Texans/Chargers.
