Chip Kelly crazy sideline calls strike again [GIF]

Nobody has ever accused Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach Chip Kelly of not being creative.

From his widely-known eclectic up-tempo offenses to the crazy looking sideline play calls, Kelly certainly brings an element of excitement to the game.

During the Eagles’ Sunday Night Football contest against the Dallas Cowboys, Kelly’s assistants displayed some of those antics in full view of the cameras.

These guys do a pretty darn good job of being in unison – although it’s unclear if they are supposed to be – and provide quite the chuckle for fans.

Check out the GIF below:

KElly Calls

The hand signals are classic.  Since I don’t speak sign language – and admittedly have no clue if that’s what this even is, i’m assuming not – I can’t relay what is being said, obviously.

With Kelly’s quick pace offense, these types of calls are needed to get everyone in formation, call out personnel shifts and get the actual play call in and date back to his days at Oregon.

One thing is for sure, having to make play calls like this is a good workout for the coaches.

Philadelphia holds a 17-16 lead midway through the 4th quarter in the winner-take-all matchup with the Cowboys.  The Eagles are 9-6 on the year and Dallas is 8-7; the winner takes the NFC East crown and gets a spot in the playoffs.
