Ian Rapoport of NFL.com checked in with his top stories of the NFL offseason last week, and guess what narrative sits at the top of his list? No, not Manti Te’o, Andy Reid in Kansas City, or Robert Griffin III’s knee. Instead, it’s Chip Kelly’s departure from Oregon to become the Eagles’ next head coach.
Here’s what Rapoport had to say:
The remodeling of the Philadelphia Eagles under new head coach Chip Kelly. For the last two seasons, the interest in the Eagles has bordered on rubbernecking. As in, watch the cars collide, check out the damage. Is that era over? Kelly hopes so. The former Oregon coach brings his fast-paced, high-octane offense to the NFL, filling everyone with wonder. Can it work, and in what form? Oh, and will Michael Vick be a part of it? Can’t wait to find out.
Agreed, Ian. It should be interesting. But as for the question of whether Vick will be a part of it? No chance.
