If first impressions mean anything, then Chip Kelly's "It" factor is going to be a powerful tool in a city that lives for the every move made by the Philadelphia Eagles ... Saturday morning was an example of what is important to Chip Kelly. He and general manager Howie Roseman took some time to walk over to the indoor practice facility at the NovaCare Complex where the Arena League's Philadelphia Soul had an open tryout that attracted more than 200 hopefuls. Kelly and Roseman wanted to stop by and say hello to team owner Ron Jaworski and the Soul's staff, as well as to get a glimpse of the goings on. It took a grand total of maybe 20 minutes, but, boy, did it mean something to those who were there, a group that included current Eagle Jeremy Maclin and former Eagles Hollis Thomas, Vince Papale, Barrett Brooks and Ken Dunek.
