Under first-year head coach Chip Kelly, the Philadelphia Eagles got everything rolling down the stretch run of the season, which culminated last Sunday with the win over the Dallas Cowboys that sent them to the NFL Playoffs.

It answered the question as to whether or not his offense would work in the National Football League, which is centered around effective, smart play from the quarterback.

That quarterback, though, was second-year player Nick Foles and not the veteran Michael Vick as expected. After Vick dealt with some more injuries, Foles stepped in and has been near flawless ever since.

Obviously this raises questions about Vick’s future with the team now.

In an interview with ESPN, Vick doesn’t seem too worried about his future, as he believes that he has everything it takes to be a starting quarterback in the NFL somewhere next season, even if that’s not with the Eagles:


“I don’t worry about it,” Vick said, according to CSNPhilly.com. “My skill set is still there, my arm is still there, my legs are still there, I’m still a playmaker, that’s evident. I think at some point I’ll be playing somewhere.”

Now that would all depend on whether or not some NFL team out there agrees with him. If they don’t, Vick would also be open to coming back to continue to be the backup for Foles and Kelly:

“Yeah, if it doesn’t work out, if all else fails, absolutely,” he said. “You can never rule that out.
