After a year as the Eagles head coach, Chip Kelly is really starting to shape the team's roster the way he wants it.
He anointed Nick Foles as his starting quarterback by passing on Johnny Manziel with the team's first-round pick. He released DeSean Jackson and replaced him with Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff at receiver. He traded boom-or-bust backup running back Bryce Brown. And he added versatile veteran running back Darren Sproles as a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
The Eagles scored 442 points in 2013, the fourth-most in the NFL. How will they do with a bunch of new players on offense, particularly at skill positions? Kelly hand-picked Matthews. Huff went to Oregon and should already have a good grasp on the offense. And Foles is one year more experienced, with a full offseason under his belt as the starter.
The Eagles escaped injuries last year, particularly on the offensive line. The goal for 2014 is avoiding injuries and building on the success from the previous year. If defensive coordinators struggle to contain Kelly's offense again, the Eagles will be simply unstoppable.
