"Chip Kelly taught me how to run with the ball,'' Vick said. "People thought that was absurd when I told them that, and I even thought it was too late to learn something like that. But it's never too late. I thought I was carrying the ball the right way, but I showed coach Kelly one day how I carry the ball and he knocked it right out. Then he showed me how to hold it correctly.''

Uh, what about Andy Reid, a coach with a pretty good pedigree on offense, you say? Why didn't Reid get Vick's grip fixed? Good question.

"I heard somebody question, 'Well, he had the great Andy Reid,''' Vick said. "Andy wasn't thinking about that [how Vick holds the ball when he runs]. It never came up. Andy trusted me.''
