Eagles | Brandon Bair impresses

Sat, 23 Aug 2014 07:48:39 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Bair is impressing in practice and preseason games, and his age will not be held against him when the roster cuts are made, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "My concern is the season," Kelly said. "So, I think if he continues to put himself in positions to play, then our focus with those guys is what's going to help us immediately. 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.

Panthers | Jason Avant clashed with Chip Kelly

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 09:27:04 -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.

Eagles | Offseason offensive work looks fast

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.
