The Linc - Shurmur says Eagles ready to run

Shurmur expects Eagles to run plenty with McCoy & Brown | Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia
Are we going from a coach who doesn’t use any running backs to a coach who uses two? Pat Shurmur says yes. Shurmur, Chip Kelly’s new offensive coordinator, said Monday that he plans to give both LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown a generous number of carries moving forward and said he thinks in general, offenses are more effective with two running backs in the mix.

Chip Calls an Audible: New Deal for Vick
What does this mean? Well, it means nothing good for Nick Foles, first of all. Vick has said he is not amenable to staying here as a backup. The Chipper, after reviewing 2012 film, must think a 33-year-old Vick is a better option for his offense than Foles, the bigger, slower-footed 2012 rookie. He must also think he isn't getting his longterm franchise QB out of the 2013 draft. So he's going to try to buy a year with Vick, see how it goes, and if disaster ensues, as it did for Andy Reid the past two seasons with Vick, then there's the 2014 draft and a more promising quarterback crop.
