Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles have a bye this weekend, and if Kelly was still in the college ranks at Oregon, that would mean a much more hectic schedule, in his opinion.Kelly explained his rationale to Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com:“My schedule, the day the season was over, was a lot worse than my schedule here because you’re planes, trains and automobiles recruiting from Sunday night until Friday afternoon and hustling back and practicing, getting a practice in Friday afternoon, practice Saturday, practice Sunday, get back on a plane and fly around the country chasing down recruits,” he said, via Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com. “Maybe a misconception is when you’re a college coach and the last game is done and then the bowl game comes, you don’t have a month off. I would argue my schedule was more hectic from a recruiting standpoint than it was here.“So I’m looking forward to being in the office every day and watching tape. That is the fun part of our job.”Hey, when you're currently riding a three-game winning streak and sitting alone in first place of your division, things are going pretty good.Via Pro Football Talk
