Following more than a decade of success under Andy Reid, the Eagles missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons in the powerful NFC East and changes had to be made. In one of the biggest stories of the NFL offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles hired Chip Kelly to replace Andy Reid after a 14-year run. Making his name as an offensive guru at the University of Oregon, Eagles fans have to be absolutely giddy with anticipation as Coach Kelly brings his explosive version of the spread offense to the NFL.
The Need for Speed
In transforming a Pac-12 also-ran into a perennial national championship contender, Chip Kelly relied heavily on speed. Whether Kelly opts for a mobile QB or a traditional pocket passer, the Philadelphia Eagles have plenty of speed at the skill positions. After dealing with injuries in 2012, former Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy is ready and eager to prove he's one of the league's most explosive weapons. With 2012 breakout star Bryce Brown and former Cowboy Felix Jones in the mix alongside McCoy, the backfield is absolutely loaded.
On the outside, Kelly has a pair of the league's most explosive receivers. DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are two of the toughest covers in the game and should be in for big seasons in Kelly's offense. The big question entering the season – who gets to throw those guys the ball? Will it be incumbent star Michael Vick? Will former USC Trojan Matt Barkley get the nod? Or could former Oregon Duck QB Dennis Dixon capitalize on his relationship with Kelly? Only time will tell.
