    That’s really cool. If you have a guy that really buys into the data, seeing and understanding the numbers in terms of the different metrics: force, agility, etc. may really help the mental aspect of recovery, in terms of “trusting” the injured limb again.

    The 49ers have been using a cooling device developed by Stanford biologists that drastically aids in muscle recovery, for the past several years now. I believe the Raiders and Stanford Cardinal use it as well. It is billed as being as good as steroids, without the side effects. I’m all for finding and leveraging whatever edge they can get: nutritionally, mechanically, holistically, spiritually. If McCoy can rush for 2000 yards, and help the Eagles win games by opening his sixth Chakra, I’m with it.

    I doubt the matchbook GPS devices are what Kelce was referring too, I suspect they had him on an indoor bike with strain gauges in each crank arm more akin to the power meters used in pro cycling. It’s a great thing if the athlete buys in to it, numbers can be very powerful motivators easpecially once you start seeing them rise and feeling the effect.

      It’s easier to advance with a metric to reference.

    Throwing Rick Burkhalter and crew under the bus?

    I think it will be pretty interesting to follow the Eagles organization over the next few years just from the perspective of ‘corporate leadership’. It seems like daily we hear a new story about little things that Chip and Co do or say that reinforces the philosophy they’ve brought in. It’s especially interesting because I imagine most of us relate to a lot of it in our own workplaces and what our own leadership does or doesn’t do (or what you do as a Manager/Owner/whatever).

    Of course, you hear all the same glowing reviews out of Kansas City (and most other NFL cities as well for that matter) about new-found enthusiasm, change for the better, etc.

    Also, it’ll be interesting to see things develop past the honeymoon phase and what happens during losses and poor performances or when Chip inevitably has his Belichick ‘4th and 2′ moment.

    It might not always be satisfying but at least we can never complain that being an Eagles fan is boring!

      Derrick Rose. No 2 injuries are alike, he set the bar unreasonably high

    I’m surprised it took this long to enlist sports sciences services… this is a multi-billion dollar industry.. It’s about time. What was Reid doing? And why hasn’t anyone else thought of this beside the head coach? I’m glad Kelly thinks outside the box in covering fitness and nutrition basis but that should have been a no brainer to have only the state of the art fitness technology and nutrition professionals on site.

  • PaoliBulldog

    Kelce’s comments about the previous regime say more about Reid than about Burkhalter.

    Ya, it would seem this staff would be ahead of the game. If they don’t know about this cooling device, they will very soon. Or they already have an alternative to it, OR THEY ALREADY DO THE EXACT SAME THING! who knows

  • JofreyRice

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they were using the cooling glove. Hell, maybe Kelly is using version 2.0 or something, the guy really seems to believe in this stuff.

  • G_WallyHunter

    What I was thinking, they are so committed to it, that they must have guys always searching to see what’s next, staying ahead
