Wouldn't that be taking a page out of Shanahan's book? And I don't mean for how he's played RGIII... I'm talking back in the Terrell Davis days!
I don't see the correlation, really?
But, I think QB's are big and athletic enough to care for themselves in this offense. Vick got beat down, a lot last year, but he had absolutely no offensive line, a coach who refused to provide running plays to protect him, and Vick rightfully tried to do everything. Kelly's offense protects the QB by running from that position and remembering what running backs do.
I'm not an Eagles fan, but I'm an NFL fan. As the latter, I want to see a pure spread once and for all. Its time to see if it works. I'm hoping Kelly remains true, and bucks conventional wisdom. Conventional wisdom got RW picked at 75, its not fullproof.
