Paul Sheridan of the Philadelphia Inquirer sees the Vick re-signing more negatively than most:
Before Chip Kelly burned his boats, here's hoping he noticed the wreckage along the coastline.
They are the ruined vessels of other captains lured toward the rocks by the siren song of Michael Vick's physical gifts. They were coaches who saw the rocket arm and the tailback speed and believed they could turn Vick into a championship quarterback.
They were Dan Reeves and Jim Mora Jr. and, most recently and painfully, Andy Reid. If Kelly knows about Cortes, the Spanish explorer who burned his ships to remove the possibility of returning home from his men's thoughts, he probably knows about Odysseus, lashing himself to the mast to resist the sirens.
Lash yourself to the mast, Chip. You'll thank us later.
If Vick winds up being his best option at the end of training camp, then so be it.
But that would represent a very disappointing start to Kelly's tenure here.
Love the analogy here. Sheridan certainly was turned off by the oft-injured, turnover-happy Vick over the last three seasons and doesn't see why the Eagles would continue the Vick experiment after it failed miserably in 2011 and 2012.
However, in theory, the schematic fit is there, which is what makes the deal logical enough.
Lastly, I do agree with Sheridan's opinion that if Vick is the best option at quarterback, it would be a somewhat disappointing start to Kelly's tenure in Philadelphia.
