The biggest roster decision Chip Kelly will make in his first season as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles is at the quarterback position.  The question is, who will he ultimately choose to run his offense? Naturally, the first question to ask is what kind of offense he will run and what characteristics he is looking for in a quarterback.  Kelly’s offense at Oregon was mainly a combination of read-option spread along with a fast-paced tempo (hurry-up).
