Since the day he was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles, head coach Chip Kelly has been constantly quizzed about ins and outs of his uptempo spread offense. When word of the Patriots using variations of that offense hit the main stream media, pundits alike started to wonder what the secret was to Chip Kelly’s offense. Kelly who is starting to be deemed this offensive genius and wizard, told the L.A. Times, he’s not “running some magical offense.” “I don’t think anybody’s inventing anything new,” Kelly said. “It’s a very cyclical game. A lot of things that are being done with the Wildcat formation was the single-wing formation run way back when. Dick Kazmaier won the Heisman Trophy at Princeton running the single-wing offense. He would have been a good zone-read quarterback.” “We don’t run some magical offense or defense,” he said. “You’re talking about the best coaches in the world at this level. They see everything that we’ve done at the college level, and everything we’ll do, they’ve seen before.” Kelly said its a coaches job to adapt, and he will adapt his style to whichever quarterback wins the job. “If you’ve got a good coaching staff, that’s what you do,” he said. “The best example in the NFL is [Denver Coach] John Fox. A year ago, he had Tim Tebow and went to the playoffs. Now, he hasPeyton Manning and runs an entirely different offense, and went to the playoffs. When you’re good, you adapt to who you have.”
