|Extending a broken play is what Michael Vick does well, but it may not be what Chip Kelly wants from his quarterback.|
Whether at Virginia Tech, Atlanta or in Philadelphia, Vick’s “signature football” has come while extending the play. There will surely be some room for that in Kelly’s system -- allowing the creator to create -- but it doesn’t sound like he wants to make a habit out of it.
If Vick is at his best when extending the play, and Kelly wants a quarterback who gets the ball out quickly, where does that leave us?
“I don’t know what he’s been asked to do in the past, but that’s our job as coaches where he can get the ball out quickly, because we have some play makers on the offensive side of the ball that are going to flourish when we get the ball in their hands,” said Kelly. “So that’s on us as coaches. [It's] not on the quarterback.”
But ultimately, it is.
