One of the main questions of the NFL offseason was just how effective would the Philadelphia Eagles offense be under new head coach Chip Kelly. With Kelly bringing an up-tempo style to the pro game that virtually has never been seen before, watching this play out would be interesting, to say the least.
Well, through one half of Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins, it’s been more than interesting. Actually, it’s been eye-popping.
Kelly and the Eagles were on fire in the first half against the ‘Skins. The Philly offense ran an astounding 53 plays total in the first half for 322 total yards. Just as Kelly did with his Oregon offenses throughout recent years, his offense has dictated virtually everything that has happened in the game so far.
Oh, and as of time of this publishing, running back LeSean McCoy just burst his way through the middle for a 34 yard score. The Eagles now lead the game 33-7.
So, this offense won’t work, huh?
