One of the biggest mysteries this NFL season is what type of offense first-year Philadelphia Eagles Coach Chip Kelly will run.
Now we have a bit of a hint.
Kelly named Michael Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback Tuesday, giving him the nod over Nick Foles and dark-horse rookie Matt Barkley.
The coach had been expected to announce a starter for the exhibition game against Jacksonville, but instead named Vick the permanent No. 1 quarterback.
“It's not a one-game trial basis,” Kelly said, according to USA Today. “I would think it was a thorough evaluation. ... We felt like we had a good amount of tape, us seeing them on the field and us seeing them in a lot of different situations. We wanted to put a guy in place -- if we could -- in enough time to prepare us for the season.”
