Although Philadelphia Eagles LB Marcus Smith wants to see more action on the field, the team will not rush the top draft pick along. "We don't look at a guy and say, 'Hey, he's this, we have to force him in,'" Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "I think you'd lose the rest of the guys on your team if you say, 'Why are you playing this guy?'"

We're not building for the future. Our future is right now."

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews caught only four passes for 14 yards in the team's first preseason game, prompting coach Chip Kelly to express disappointment. "I thought he was just inconsistent," Kelly said. "I don't know if he was pressing or whatever. But there were some inconsistencies there. Some guys, it's the first time in the bright lights. [They] get the chance to get that out of the system, get a deep breath."
Sat, 09 Aug 2014 06:53:19 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant said he did not approve of his standing with head coach Chip Kelly last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Avant said he "mostly ran clear-out routes. ... When it came to certain things, we butted heads sometimes -- route running and route technique. So I knew I didn't fit his system."
Fantasy Tip: Avant wasn't the field-stretching type of slot receiver Kelly likes to use. In Carolina, the vet won't be much more than a bye-week replacement type but will have several big games. Good luck figuring out when to play him.
Tue, 10 Jun 2014 09:20:30 -0700

Fri, 30 May 2014 06:33:55 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles' organized team activities have displayed their intent to move a lot faster and increase the amount of plays run, in the observation of Nick Fierro. They were quick in moving to the line of scrimmage even before the whistle blew. "We're just running as many reps as we can so we can get it on tape and teach them," head coach Chip Kelly said. "... What we're trying to do is, can we get a maximum number of reps for everybody, because we do have three and four groups, both offensively and defensively? Let's just get a lot of stuff on tape so we can teach off it."
Fantasy Tip: Of course, such an overwhelming pace allowed the offense to dominate last year before they fell apart, for numerous reasons. Of course LeSean McCoy should have another elite year, but the other fantasy-relevant members of this offense in their second year with this system -- Nick Foles, Jeremy Maclin (despite his injury), Riley Cooper, Zach Ertz -- could be in line for huge steps forward with this continuity.

At the end of the game Saturday, Jan. 4, coach Chip Kelly was reluctant to talk about the future of his kicker but admitted his dissatisfaction with how Henery hit kickoffs during the loss.

"Just knowing the type of success I could have had in this offense and the extra quality I could have brought to this team - that's the most frustrating part," Maclin said. "I'm one of the guys that can move around and be put in different spots. The fact that I played inside in college and have the quickness to play there and I've got the size and speed to play outside."
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 10:17:28 -0700

We still think he's one of the best tackles in this game, but he's not exactly where he could be because he's got a limitation with the hand, but not to a point where we're gonna sit Jason down and put someone else in."

The people that are going to fix this right now were in the locker room last night. It's our coaching staff and our players."
Sat, 21 Sep 2013 06:25:02 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he wants more plays run on offense, and is not concerned with time of possession numbers. "Time of possession means nothing," Kelly said. "They're running a lot more plays, and we're not running enough plays. That's the whole argument I've always had with the time of possession. A team can hold it for 40 minutes, but if they run the same amount of plays, that's a different deal.
"Right now, we're not running enough plays on offense. We're turning the ball over too much. We're not executing the way we're supposed to execute. That's what we have to do to keep our defense off the field."
Sat, 14 Sep 2013 06:01:46 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is still getting practice reps with the first-team offense in practice. Head coach Chip Kelly's practices are fast paced, which allows for extra reps for the backup quarterback. "You've got to make sure that you get your [backups] some reps," Kelly said, adding that it's the same way with the backup offensive linemen. "They [also] get a lot of work when we are presenting the other team's look. ... so Nick is getting reps in that standpoint, too. But it's important to make sure all those guys get some reps."
Tue, 10 Sep 2013 11:34:54 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly thinks his offense needs to be faster and quicker than what it was in their Week 1 win over the Washington Redskins. "We left the ball on the ground too much. We didn't get the ball to the officials. We could have sped things up from a process in between plays. That's something we need to work on," he said. The Eagles ran 53 plays in the first half alone and gained 322 total yards. However, they ran only 24 offensive plays in the second half. Redskins LB Brian Orakpo said their defense made an adjustment in the second half to put more players in the box and avoid being spread out by the Eagles' offense. Kelly said the difference in the first and second half had more to do with his management of the game.

The NFL might slow down Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense this year based on rule restrictions. "We have to make sure teams understand that they don't control the tempo, our officials do," NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said. "We're going through our normal ball mechanics, we aren't going to rush (unless) it's in the two-minute drill." Kelly prefers to run a play every 12 seconds, and his team at Oregon ran 82.8 players per game last season.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said the team will rotate quarterbacks in training camp until a starting QB emerges.
Fantasy Tip: Not much of a surprise here, as Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Matt Barkley will all get the chance to make a run at the starting job. As training camp and preseason games get played, there should be some clarity on what the Eagles are thinking in terms of who will ultimately start.
