5 Ripple Effects Chip Kelly's Hiring Will Have on Philadelphia Eagles' Roster

The Philadelphia Eagles have found themselves a new head coach in Chip Kelly, who is regarded as one of football’s most innovative minds.

Fans should be delighted with the Eagles' newest addition for a couple of reasons. The first is because the head coach will not be Andy Reid.

The second reason to be excited about Kelly coming to Philadelphia is because of the innovative offensive attack he runs. Although there is plenty of skepticism about whether or not Kelly’s offense can translate into the NFL, the fact remains that the NFL is now an offensive league that enables a fast-paced style of play to flourish. Look at any NFL offense that runs a hurry-up style and notice where that offense is ranked.

It’s unlikely that Kelly will come out of the gate next season and try to run 90 plays every game. It’s also unlikely that he will attempt two-point conversions on a whim. Furthermore, Kelly doubtlessly recognizes that if his approach to the game is going to succeed, he will have to ease it in to let his players get used to it.

There are a lot of effects that Eagles fans can expect to see from the impact of their team’s new head coach. The following slideshow will outline a few of those.
