Do you have a group of plays that you plan to run at the beginning of the game? " No, we script all our situations. So we have first and second down calls, third and mediums, third and shorts, third and longs, red zone calls, coming out calls, so there's a situation within the game. " Read more at http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/eagles/Eagles_coach_Chip_Kelly_press_conference_full_transcript.html#6kRv1rEV2JOYb5T2.99 Kelly is a guy who clearly is thinking ahead. He's not just scripting the first 15, running the same 15 regardless of the position on the field, rather he has prepared for all situations at all times. That's some serious forward thinking! Chip apparently is also giving Nick Foles occasional first team practice reps. Maybe that's just in case stuff or maybe he intends to give Foles occasional reps in games. In either case Kelly is planning ahead. At some point teams will eventually catch up to the Eagles, and at some point the Eagles will lose, but it certainly won't be to a lack or preparation. It won't be because the coach after his 15 scripted is just winging it.
