Eagles OC Pat Shurmur believes Michael Vick will be able to pick up head coach Chip Kelly's offense quickly.

Kelly prefers a simplified approach to football, and coaches don't expect a significant learning curve for Vick. One of the most significant changes will be the new verbiage associated with plays. "No matter what we decide to run or what the plays are, we'll try to have one or two words to paint the picture instead of five or six," said Shurmur. Vick struggled to gain complete command of Andy Reid's system, so it's tough to share Shurmur's optimism that Vick will quickly acclimate to Kelly's.

funny thing is one can expect a pretty decent year for Vick if the O-line rounds back into form. then another two more years of the same old crap play that got Reid fired. I will give him this year just because of a new coach, that's about it. the league knows how to defend him already.

Vick will be 33 before the start of the 2013 season. He has little to no FF value.

agreed if we are talking about your standard 10 or 12 team league. even in deep leagues, i would only take him if i was desperate or for depth. overall, i think the guy sucks and the league has passed right by him after one good year.

All u guy suck. When he came back u guys where probably on his nuts two yrs ago. The guy didnt have a line and his defense sucked two. Not to mention his coach sucked too. Tom brady , manning or hell any qb could ok had in success with that time.

no, i was shocked and really hated it THREE years ago. i thought he was overachieving and that Andy Reid got lucky with him. it truly amuses me to hear someone calling Reid a bad coach after all the years of great football he brought to Philly. no respect for the past. watch him turn KC right around and become a winner again as Philly struggles with a rookie, collage coach and a fragile team.

you see what happened to Indy when Manning went down? they could not buy a win. so how good was that team? without him, not very good at all.

Brady is on one of the best coached teams in the league. they bring i a pile of old guys and still find ways to win. the system up there is the difference.

Vick would be perfect for a team with a busted up O-line, if he had brains to go with that talent.
