Eagles All-22: Why Jason Kelce Has Struggled

As Jason Kelce’s disappointing play permeated throughout the season last year, questions circulated about why the former Pro Bowl center was struggling. Was it the poor guard play next to him? Was it Chip Kelly’s increasingly inept offense?

Despite the upgrade next to Kelce in Brandon Brooks and Doug Pederson’s effective play-calling, Kelce has still struggled in the first two games this season.

Trey Burton is a football player. If you talk to anyone in the Eagles organization, they will almost certainly use that phrase when talking about the tight end, which they use to reference his versatility and to explain why he filled in so well for Zach Ertz against the Bears.

“You can put Trey anywhere and he could go out there and play,” Jordan Matthews said. “I was just talking to him today about when he played back in high school, when they used to play against Aaron Murray, back when he was back at [Henry B.] Plant [High School]. They were having trouble with Orson Charles — y’all remember him, he played at Georgia — and (Burton’s) coach told him to go cover Orson Charles. He didn’t even play corner!” Read more »
