Chip done with Vick?

07:11 AM ET 10.28 | Veteran quarterback Michael Vick isn't one to look to the sidelines in hopes of getting a hook. He has to be taken out, and that is what Chip Kelly did in the second quarter of Sunday's dreadful 15-7 loss to the New York Giants. Kelly let Vick remain in the game for one series after the quarterback reinjured his left hamstring, just as he did when the injury originally occurred three weeks earlier in the Meadowlands, but it was clear that Vick couldn't run. ... When Kelly took a deep breath and went with rookie Matt Barkley, Vick went to the bench and draped a towel over his head. He has been in the NFL long enough to know that it isn't a good sign when three weeks of rehabilitation come undone in just nine plays.

What was Kelly expecting? That's Vick's history: turnovers, bad decisions, and injuries.

Throw in a body that can't recover quickly due to age, and you have it.

This was so predictable.

At the beginning of the season the press was wondering what Philadelphia would do with Vick. Kelly did what I predicted. He ran Vick into the ground with the hopes that Vick would get his seasonal injury, much like Jay Cutler, then it would make it easier for Kelly to release Vick at the end of the season.

So unless there is some monetary or contractual reason to keep Vick, then he's a goner.

He'll be "ready" again before the end of the season. Philly will still be struggling, looking for a quarterback, so they'll put him back in.

And, he'll be hurt again. He'll finish his career on IR, no one will sign him next year, and we'll get a few threads about how ready to play his is, but nobody will bite.

He killed somebody too ?

Throw Vick to the dogs.

October 28, 2013  08:38 AM ET

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen

October 28, 2013  09:02 AM ET

There's always a spot for him in the prison league.

October 28, 2013  09:06 AM ET

There will be no Chip on Vicks shoulder going forward.

As an Eagles fan, they should have never brought back Vick. I actually like Vick, but this was a new regime and they were in total rebuild after a 4-12 season. They should have just went with Foles at starter and Barkley or a veteran at backup and used this season to evaluate everyone.

This was a throw-away season, as most new coaches get the first/second year to remake the team in their own system. I have always believed if this ship is sinking next year, Kelly bolts back to College in 2015 when his suspension is up. The Eagles need to tank this season and hope they get lucky with one of the QB's in the draft next year, or we will be one of those teams with revolving QB's who never have a chance at a Lombardi Trophy.
