Chip Kelly

  1. Chip Kelly and Nick Foles mic’d up for the Redskins game is awesome

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Riley Cooper, Nick Foles

    The Sound FX clip over on the Eagles website of Chip Kelly and Nick Foles being mic’d up for Sunday’s win over the Redskins is fantastic. You get a glimpse into what the coach who loves speed is like on the sidelines and how everyone else, from the Eagles quarterback to the referees on the…

  2. The power of Chip compels you… not to do that shot

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    chip.kelly

    Chip Kelly and his Philadelphia Eagles have a mantra. Habits reflect the mission. Whatever that means. Okay, what does it mean? Vinny Curry explains: “All he’s saying is basically follow the blueprint and pick your head up at the end of the season and see where we are,” defensive end Vinny Curry said. “And so…

  3. Video: Chip Kelly names Reuben Frank starting quarterback

    Bless an NFL beat reporters’ heart, for asking a head coach to reveal even the simplest piece of information—like who is the starting quarterback—can be more challenging than sneaking into Fort Knox. No, Chip Kelly isn’t ready to name Nick Foles the starter right now, no matter how many different ways it’s asked. And beware,…

  4. Breaking down the Eagles’ dominant finish in Green Bay

    Nov 11, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    When was the last time we saw the Eagles simply overpower an opponent the way they did the Packers in the fourth quarter on Sunday? There are a ton of things to like about the Birds right now. Nick Foles can’t seem to make a mistake. LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson are about to reach…

  5. Nick Foles ties NFL record with seven touchdown passes

    Nov 3, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    nick.foles.cooper

    Even those folks who have been clamoring for Nick Foles to be the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the season couldn’t have seen this coming. Foles threw more touchdown passes than incompletions in the Birds’ 49-20 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, tying the NFL single-game record with seven scores. Foles’ line: 22-of-28…

  6. Eagles-Raiders: Will Nick Foles rebound? Can Birds score a touchdown?

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    It’s been three weeks—21 full days—since Nick Foles placed a 36-yard rainbow between three defenders and into DeSean Jackson’s waiting arms in Tampa Bay. That was the last time the Eagles’ offense reached the end zone. Over the past two games we’ve seen Foles regress to Bobby Hoying levels of ineptitude, watched as Michael Vick…

  7. Peter King: Eagles ‘the disappointment of the season’

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Expectations were low for the Eagles heading into the season, although I’m not sure anybody thought a Chip Kelly offense would go one game without scoring a touchdown, let alone two in a row. Still, Philadelphia wasn’t exactly thinking Super Bowl this year, and most didn’t have them this team in the playoffs, so a…

  8. Reminder for Chip Kelly: the Broncos won games with Tim Tebow at QB

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    barkley

    Practically every Eagles fan understands this team in all likelihood does not have its franchise quarterback. For all the words that were spent on Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley and which one should or should not start, there are legitimate doubts that any one of them could ever be the man in Philadelphia. Chip…

  9. You probably want to, but don’t write off Chip Kelly’s chance at being ‘revolutionary’ just yet

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    chip-kinne

    With yesterday’s 15-7 downer against the Giants giving the Eagles two straight losses and Chip Kelly’s go-go/high octane/whatever offense two straight games without a touchdown, now seems a convenient time to mock that thing about that time Kelly was supposed to “revolutionize” the NFL. Count Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News among those who…

  10. Inexplicably, Chip Kelly opts for almost unprecedented onside kick with 4:11 left in Eagles’ loss to Giants

    Oct 27, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    For reasons unbeknownst to most all, Giants punter Steve Weatherford double-clutched kicking a high snap out of his own end zone and taking the safety, instead gift-wrapping a two-yard touchdown for Eagles special teamer Najee Goode. Crazier: With 4:11 to go, the score 15-7, and with the Eagle defense having to that point allowed 12 yards…

  11. Offensive: Eagles offense held without a touchdown for second straight week

    Oct 27, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    vick-herremans

    As bad as things got in Andy Reid’s final season in Philadelphia, never did the Eagles go two full games without scoring a touchdown on offense. Even without 80 percent of the starters along the offensive line, even with LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson missing in the end, whether it was Michael Vick or Nick…

  12. Phil Simms names Eagles offense one of NFL’s five worst units

    Oct 25, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Phil Simms

    In terms of quality, there isn’t much separation between the offenses for the Eagles and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger—that’s the NFL according to Phil Simms. The former New York Giants quarterback and CBS analyst was listing the top and bottom five units in the league on Showtime’s Inside the NFL this…

  13. Injuries muddy Eagles quarterback situation for Week 8

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Vick and Foles

    Philadelphia’s quarterback controversy may have been laid to rest, but as of Monday it still isn’t clear who will start against the Giants in Week 8. If healthy, it will be Michael Vick—but that’s a big if. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly refused to name a starter during his day-after press conference on the grounds…

  14. Even the Eagles players can’t keep track of their starting QB: Shady McCoy edition

    Oct 14, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Mike Vick, Nick Foles. Both pretty good quarterbacks! But who is the starting quarterback for next Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. WE MUST KNOW NOW PLEASE! Homie Chip don’t play that. The Eagles head coach was a perfect politician on Sunday after the Eagles win over Tampa and again today during his Monday press conference.…

  15. Foles should be the starter: second-year QB masterful in Eagles 31-20 win at Tampa

    Oct 13, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    foles-spike

    If I’m Chip Kelly, I’ve seen all I needed to from Nick Foles. Simply put, the kid is playing a better quarterback than Michael Vick right now. The second-year field general picked up right where he left off last week in the Eagles’ 31-20 win over Tampa Bay. Foles completed 22 of 31 attempts for…

  16. John Hackworth’s response to Chip Kelly being called longest-tenured head coach in Philly: ‘It does piss me off’

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    Union manager John Hackworth has plenty of pressure on his shoulders this season.

    Hey, have you heard Chip Kelly is the longest-tenured head coach in Philly?? Of course you have! Everybody, including major national sports outlets, was spouting out that “fact” on Monday after the Flyers fired Peter Laviolette. Of course, there are some problems with it. In breathless attempts to get their Tweets out, a lot of…

  17. Chip Shots: If Foles throws 27 TDs in Tampa Bay, he can win job

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-bucs

    Nick Foles may get the start in Tampa Bay, but Michael Vick is still the Birds’ quarterback. At least that’s the way Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is looking at the situation the day after Foles replaced an injured Vick and led Philadelphia to a 36-21 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Actually,…

  18. Quarterback controversy? Nick Foles leads Eagles to victory in New York

    Oct 6, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-desean

    When Michael Vick left the game with a hamstring injury and less than two minutes remaining in the first half, the Eagles were ahead 16-7, and Nick Foles quickly led the offense on a scoring drive to tack on three. But midway through the third quarter, the New York Giants had retaken the lead, and…

  19. Chip Shots: Kelly chastises McCoy for interruption, asks NFL for trophy

    Oct 3, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    chip-wave

    The Eagles may be off to a 1-3 start under Chip Kelly, but if the pressure of the NFL is starting to get to the head coach, you wouldn’t know it from watching him. Chip was his typical snarky self at Thursday’s press conference. When somebody mentioned Philadelphia could move into first place in the…

  20. Chip Kelly: Harold Carmichael’s 1984 retirement is killing the 2013 Eagles

    Oct 3, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    In 14 NFL seasons, 13 of which he spent with the Philadelphia Eagles, Harold Carmichael caught 590 passes for 8,985 yards and 79 touchdowns. After spending the final year of his career with Dallas in 1984, Carmichael retired from the game. And that decision is just killing the Eagles’ offense right now. Geoff Mosher has a…

  21. Is the worst already over for the Philadelphia Eagles?

    Oct 1, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    avant

    In case you’re still searching for silver linings from the Eagles’ 52-20 drubbing in Denver two days ago—their third consecutive loss, and looking increasingly less competitive with each passing week—well the good news is there actually are some reasons to remain upbeat. Go ahead and scoff at the mere implication the sky isn’t falling. If…

  22. NFL.com analyst names Chip Kelly a top candidate for USC job

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    One of the true destination jobs in all of college football opened up over the weekend when the University of Southern California fired head coach Lane Kiffin. It’s easy to land top recruits, you’re living on the beach—where do I send a resume? At least one analyst believes Chip Kelly might be asking the same…

  23. ANNIHILATED: Broncos humiliate Eagles 52-20 in Denver

    Sep 29, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    broncos-humiliate-eagles

    Well, we told you there was a chance to win. Actually, I said it, and I stand by it. I also said what actually wound up happening—an embarrassing 52-20 loss—would not surprise anyone either. The Denver Broncos are an amazing football team, which should be fairly obvious to everybody by now. The next defense that…

  24. 3 reasons the Eagles could upset the Denver Broncos on Sunday

    Sep 27, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    shady-29

    Somewhat lost amid all of the hoopla over the buzzsaw known as Peyton Manning is the fact that the Eagles are an NFL team with a chance to win a football game this Sunday. Sure, you hear a few people touting this idea, but it sure seems like most are chalking this up as a…

  25. What time is it in Denver? Check your Rolex

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick

    (What, you don’t have a Rolex? That’s weird. Bloggers always own a Rolex or two…) Chip Kelly has no shortage of unique methods, from music at practice and personalized smoothies to his entire approach to offense. He even has a way of acclimating his players to the time difference on a west-coast trip, like the…
