    I’d really love for Kelley’s or a similar playbook to leak online. (like I’ve pdf playbooks from the 90s to the mid-2000s. But I’d love to know his terminology. I know the west coast offense, the Corryelle offense, the Earhardt-Perkins system. I’m ready to learn this new thing!

    “Smart coaches out-coach mediocre coaches”. Especially coaches who have a difficult time making real-time adjustments (ie Reid). In the longer term Eagles should have an advantage in drafting players who are not as high on other boards due to high versatility Kelly loves. Kudos for this hiring as I can think of no available coach who would have me enjoy pre-season as much.

    guys, phenominal journalism here. I don’t see anything better in philly or anywhere else – the depth of coverage is just amazing. WOuld much rather have this then the same made up controversy over and over again.

    “Barkley’s pass goes right through Harbor’s hands.“
    more like fingertips. That was almost hell of a catch, hardly a drop.

  • I’m loving these breakdowns. Looking forward to this season.

    Great analysis guys! Keep it coming.

    I’ve gotta second Sheil’s link to Chris Brown at Grantland. Excellent recent update on the read option in the NFL with Buffalo and Chicago.

    I think Ron Jaworski and Mike Missanelli are just so wrong. “This stuff will never work in the NFL.” But then I don’t get paid to have controversial opinions and generate listeners.

    PS TMac did a nice job on Mike M’s show today not getting sucked into MM’s baiting.

      Jaws at least included qualifications. It was less of a “it can’t work” and more of a “Until I see how the passing game steps up, I’m not putting money on it.”
