A year ago, Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles hoped to bounce back from a disappointing 2011 season and reach the Super Bowl.

Twelve ugly losses and a new head coach later, Vick is battling at this year’s training camp merely to start.

Chip Kelly has replaced Andy Reid as coach of the Eagles, and he has chucked Reid’s cherished West Coast attack for some watered-down version of Kelly’s super-hurry-up, spread offence he ran so successfully at the University of Oregon.

While Kelly has five quarterbacks on his 90-man camp roster, only three have a chance to start: speedy and athletic Vick, second-year pocket passer Nick Foles and rookie pocket passer Matt Barkley. Neither Dennis Dixon, a spread-option specialist under Kelly at Oregon in 2007, nor G.J. Kinne took a single snap Wednesday in either 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills.
