Michael Vick "fell in love with the game again" under Chip Kelly

Philly.com - [Full Article]

Eagles QB Michael Vick refused to name himself the starter, though he did provide a rare glimpse into his soul, when he credited Kelly with restoring his confidence. Maybe Vick was among the people who thought he was done here after last season’s 4-12 debacle.

“When things don’t go well and everybody’s pointing their finger at you, sometimes it can hurt your confidence,” Vick, 33, said. “I read everything that was said. I lived it.”

Vick said when he sat down with Kelly, “his main goal was to help me get back into top shape, get me comfortable, and to a point where I could believe in myself again.” Vick said he “fell in love with the game again, and I’m grateful for that.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Vick has looked sharp and comfortable in two preseason games and is very likely to start for the Eagles in 2013. He is a high upside QB2, contingent on his staying healthy.
