    Chip Kelly Update: Problems on Special Teams

    Chip Kelly and the Eagles did better last year than anyone but the biggest Eagles homer imagined. One big disappointment, though, was special teams performance. This is puzzling because, by all accounts, Kelly put a lot more effort into STs last year than Andy Reid ever did. …

    Chip Kelly Update: Sports Science or Sports Voodoo?

    Mandatory mini-camp is in session for three days of open-to-the-press practices, and there’s a sudden flood of information in the blogs and newspapers. It’s not really any different than the last three weeks of OTAs (organized team activities), though. “Mandatory” doesn’t mean much, for one …

    Chip Kelly Update: Murderleg, RC Cars, 3 Ducks and the Draft

    The long, slow, dull days of winter are over and Chip Kelly’s Eagles are crackling with activity.  He drafted a solid if unflashy group of players (including Ducks Josh Huff and Taylor Hart), added a number of UDFAs (such as a savage-tackling kicker nicknamed “Murderleg”) …

    Chip Kelly Update: A Draft Pick, Broken Silence and an Army Hero

    In my last column, I wrote about Chip Kelly’s long post-season silence, even amid the controversy over releasing star WR DeSean Jackson.  The weeks since January 4th have felt like an eternity of baseless speculation, what-ifs and angst over every conceivable draft pick. There have been …

    Chip Kelly Update: Radio Silence

    With all the controversy over his team releasing DeSean Jackson, a friend asked me a very good question.  What has Chip said about all this? The answer: next to nothing.  Kelly has almost completely avoided talking to the press since the season ended in January.  …

    Chip Kelly Update: DeSean is DeGone

    Two weeks ago, I wrote that Chip Kelly and the Eagles front office seemed to be dissatisfied with star wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s attitude, and it looked like they were shopping him around. Less than three hours after my column was published, the Eagles released …

    Chip Kelly Update: To DeSean or Not to DeSean?

    That is the question. At Oregon, Chip Kelly made it clear that he does not consider team stars untouchable if they don’t fit within the culture.  He dismissed Jeremiah Masoli (his starting quarterback) and Cliff Harris (All-American cornerback and returner) from the team outright, and …

    Chip Kelly Update: Free Agent Madness

    Chip Kelly and GM Howie Roseman began their free agency moves on Tuesday, and they continue to implement their distinctive strategy: 1) Don’t swing for the bleachers by competing for the highest priced stars, 2) Stick to young players, 3) Aim for versatility, 4) Get …
