Today, Chip Kelly was asked if his familiarity with the former Ducks can help him build his program with the Eagles.
“If we were gonna sing the Oregon fight song, it would,” Kelly joked.
Chip Kelly is big on versatility. That is no secret. It has been the big buzzword since he took office. He wants his starters to be malleable, and he insists that his reserves are capable of performing multiple duties.
“When you only have 46 guys active on game day, you’ve got to have versatility in your non‑starters, because there’s just not enough numbers,” Kelly explained. “If you’re two deep at every position, you know, that’s 44 excluding specialists. And at some positions, you’re going to carry a third, a third running back, so where does that spot come from? It’s got to come from somewhere.”
