The team has recently locked up a coach, acquiring controversial college coach Chip Kelly to run the team. Kelly’s unorthodox offense at the University of Oregon garnered national attention, and he relies heavily on speed. He is a gambler who isn’t afraid to go for fourth downs and two-point conversions in the first quarter.
Kelly has a lot of work to do to make the Eagles competitive. The offensive line failed to protect Michael Vick last season. The defensive line put little to no pressure on the opposing quarterback. And the secondary was as awful of a unit as there was on any NFL team.
There’s probably not a quarterback available that fits Kelly’s offense ideally. Kelly may need to go with Nick Foles for year one and build a better, more efficient offense that can score points before implementing his quarterback of the future.
