Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski believes Chip Kelly’s uptempo offense won’t work in the NFL (Credit: AP Photo) Since Chip Kelly left Oregon for the Philadelphia Eagles, fans and analysts have been wondering whether or not Kelly would bring his uptempo offense to the NFL. Over the last three seasons, Kelly’s offense at Oregon averaged 49.6, 46.1 and 47.0 points per game and in every season with the Ducks he had a top 10 offense. With some fans hoping this high scoring offense will come to the Philadelphia Eagles, one former player does not think that type of offense will work in the NFL. Former Eagles quarterback and current ESPN analysts, Ron Jaworski spoke about Kelly’s offense during an interview with 97.5 the fanatic. “It’s going to be interesting to see if this style of offense projects to the NFL,” Jaworski said, via Phillymag.com. “I’m going to say no.” Jaworski believes that Kelly will not be able to exploit NFL defenses in the same way he did while at Oregon. “It’s easy to say, ‘Yeah, it worked in college,’” he said. “But then I looked at a game like Stanford. Stanford, a good defensive football team, shut them down. I hope it works. I like the innovation, but I think it’s going to be very difficult. The NFL is a different league with fast players that have all week to prepare for you. At the collegiate level, you have 20 hours to prepare for that Oregon offense. Take out three hours of game time. You’ve got 17 hours in the course of a week to practice and prepare for that style of offense. It kills you in college. But in the NFL, these guys work 17 hours a day. A day, not a week – 17 hours a day getting ready, so there’s no secrets.” Hopefully Jaworski is wrong because I would love to see a high flying Oregon type of offense in the NFL.
