Chip Kelly Update: An Ugly Turn of Events

The Philadelphia Eagles raced out to a 16-3 lead against Miami Sunday in what looked like the easy, hilarious victory that it should have been. Tight end Brent Celek, who usually just blocks these days, caught passes for 14, 20,...

Chip Kelly Update: Hatred and Hope

The Eagles lost again Sunday, this time to division rival Washington. The Skins are not a good team, though their defense has improved a lot, ranking second in fewest rushing yards allowed (at 78 per game). On the other hand,...
