Philadelphia Eagles’ Offense Could Be Even Faster in 2014
The Philadelphia Eagles‘ offense was at times a blur last season. They got up to the line as soon as the ball was placed by the referees and went at a pace not seen in pro football in quite a long time. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly always wants to keep the pedal to the metal, and he certainly did that in his first season.
Kelly is never satisfied when it comes to the speed of his offense. During the offseason he has repeatedly stated that he wants this machine to go even faster in year two. The scary thing is that’s certainly possible. Remember last year that everyone from rookies to veterans were learning an entirely new offensive scheme. This was the first time they were seeing these concepts and plays.
It wasn’t until the second half of the season when this offense really clicked for certain players. Now everyone has their feet on the ground. Nick Foles has looked calm and composed in early practices and is executing in near perfect fashion. The receivers and running backs also know the offense like the back of their hand.
There will be no more learning now. With the addition of Jeremy Maclin from injury and an impressive looking rookie in Jordan Matthews, the Eagles have only added more weapons to their offensive arsenal that should more than offset the loss of DeSean Jackson.
Kelly always wants to go, go, go. It looks like this offense will be even more of a blur in 2014. That is bad news for the rest of the league.
