Kelly on NFL's Speed Dial

By January 17, 2013

Follow me on:

Of the six recent head coaching hires in the NFL, the Eagles' acquisition of Oregon's Chip Kelly is the most interesting.

Forget the fact that the last time Philadelphia hired a coach directly out of college was in 1976 when they landed Dick Vermeil.

What's interesting about Kelly is how fast his offenses click. They make greased lightning look slow.

In his four seasons at Oregon, Kelly's offenses ran a play every 20.9 seconds. Compare that to the "blazing" offense of the New England Patriots, fastest guns in the NFL, who are four seconds slower than Oregon.

The pros haven't hesitated to copy the college kids in recent years - witness the pistol formation - and speeding up the offense is all good as far as I'm concerned: More plays to watch for the fans.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in
your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.

Greetings, There’s no doubt that your blog might be having internet browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic website!
