Chip Kelly Leads Eagles, but Where?

Posted on October 18, 2013 by


The Philadelphia Eagles came into this year with high expectations because of new additions to their roster and, most importantly, their new head coach, Chip Kelly.

A lot of people do not think the team will do very well because they do not believe Chip Kelly’s high-tempo offense will work in the NFL. Other students from Fleetwood Area High School are more optimistic. Just ask Senior Mike Tanis.

“I think that they are going to be really good this year,” Tanis said.  “I think that they are going to make the playoffs.”

The Eagles have a lot of weapons this year to run Chip Kelly’s offense.  They have Michael Vick, who is the team’s quarterback this season, as well as LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. They have done well and shown promise in the preseason because they ended with a 2-2 record.

Rumors are rampant about why the team brought in Chip Kelly. He has been known at The University of Oregon to have the fastest high tempo offense since he arrived at Oregon. He is no longer dealing with college kids though; he is dealing with grown men who must be conditioned to run this offense.

Over the off-season, he’s changed the team’s diet, and they have conditioned more than ever.

“I think they will go 8-8. Their offense is fast, but this is the NFL, teams will play defense,” junior Francis Talarico.

Eagles fans around the City of Brotherly Love and all over the U.S. are excited for this season, but they will just have to wait and see how things turn out.
