Eagles strength and conditioning coaches ranked Michael Vick #1 "in terms of attitude, work ethic," etc

Michael Vick was juvenated. Then he was dejuvenated. It appears that he is now rejuvenated.


Chip Kelly had very glowing praise for Michael Vick today.

"What I've learned about him is how passionate he is about this game," said Kelly. "He has not missed a day, he's here every single day. You listen to our strength and conditioning guys... I asked them the other day from top to bottom if you can rank our guys, and [Vick] was our number one in terms of his attitude, work ethic, helping other players, everything in terms of weight room, off‑the‑field things... I'm not in the weight room every single day with those guys, but I always get input from them and what's going on in there."

It has been an impressive training camp for Vick. He has had a tremendous preseason in beating out a very game Nick Foles for the starting job, his teammates all seem to feel like he's rejuvenated, and he's been singled out for working hard this offseason.

When Michael Vick has his metaphorical back against the wall, that seems to be when he's at his best. To be determined if his play can carry into the regular season, but everything about his has been encouraging since camp opened a month ago.
