Here’s what we saw during tonight’s Eagles-Chiefs game.
“Right now?” Kelly asked after Sunday’s loss to the Chargers. “There aren’t any safeties on the street, I can tell you that. So we’re going to play with the ones we’ve got.”
Raise your hand if you take that as a ringing endorsement of the players on the roster.
Earlier this afternoon, Chip Kelly said that Nate Allen would start at safety opposite Patrick Chung.
But in the end, that might not end up mattering much.
Kelly conceded that Earl Wolff would see time too, and the rookie safety echoed that sentiment after today’s practice.
“I honestly feel like me and Nate probably will get almost an equal opportunity on the field Monday night,” Wolff said. “He [Chip Kelly] told me I’m gonna play every quarter. Like I said, I don’t know exactly how much I’m gonna play. I’m just gonna be ready to take advantage of every opportunity.”
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.
