Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce is really enjoying the arrival of head coach Chip Kelly. According to PhillyMag.com, Kelce felt like he couldn’t be himself around former head coach Andy Reid. “With Andy — especially with me coming in later in his career after he had built up such a reputation in Philly among the players in the locker room — there was an aura around him where you never wanted to be yourself around him. You always had to have this front up,” Kelce told 97.5 The Fanatic Tuesday. “You always had to be, ‘Yes sir.’ You had to be on your P’s and Q’s. He was a hard man to kind of talk to and be loose around. “It was always an uptight conversation whenever I had one with him. Whereas Chip is a lot more — at least at this point — one of the guys. He’s still the head coach and you still have great respect for him, but he converses with everybody, he strikes up conversations. He’s much more of a loose guy to be around than Andy was, that’s for sure.” It was pretty obvious during Reid’s final two seasons that he started to lose the Eagles’ locker room.  Which might be why they could never right the ship.   Need NFL Tickets?
