Chip Kelly's admiration of Michael Vick might not be enough to keep him in Philly

New Philadelphia Eagles head coach has his work cut out for him on several areas, and none greater than addressing the quarterback position.

He of course will be asked over and over again about the future of Michael Vick in Philadelphia. ESPN's Sal Paolantonio posed such a question.

"I don't have the answer," Kelly said, via

"I know what a talent he is and have marveled of Michael since he was at Virginia Tech. I was at the University of New Hampshire when Michael was a freshman at Virginia Tech and we were getting ready to play James Madison. And Virginia Tech had some freshman quarterback running up and down the field. And I watch him in the NFL.

"I don't have any preconceived notions of anyone. I want to meet Michael and I want to talk to Michael. And I want to watch the tape. But there haven't been too many quarterbacks in the history of this game with the skill set that he has. I'm in the process of evaluating everyone on this team."

Kelly stated during his press conference that he'll be concentrating on 'speed and youth'.

Vick has the speed, but youth? Not so much.
