This wasn't what Philadelphia Eagles fans had in mind after Chip Kelly's hugely successful debut on Monday Night Football. Unlike its start to the Redskins game, the Birds' up-tempo offense was slow to get out of the blocks against the San Diego Chargers, allowing the Chargers to build a lead that forced the home team to play catch-up all day.
That said, Michael Vick and company did manage to put a 30-spot on the scoreboard, which means a lot more went wrong than just on the offensive side of the football. One could easily make the case that Philly should have won the game, but there were far too many mistakes for that to happen.
Here are our initial observations from Sunday's game, with the general theme being "had only this happened."
Whatever "this" is, it didn't happen, and Philadelphia drops to 1-1 on the season.
