Eagles coach Chip Kelly made it official on Tuesday, declaring that he had seen enough to believe that Vick is the man to run his offense.
Kelly said Vick and Nick Foles had a “healthy competition” but that he determined Vick was far enough ahead that it was time to name him the starter. Kelly said Foles took the news well, and Kelly praised Foles for his professionalism.
