Chip Kelly's late game playcalling may have cost the Eagles a win on Sunday Philadelphia's 33-30 home loss to San Diego. Although Kelly didn't come out and admit that on Monday he did acknowledge that he could have done things differently. Trailing 30-27 late in the fourth quarter the Eagles made it down to San Diego's 14-yard line when Michael Vick hit DeSean Jackson for a 25-yard gain. At that point the Eagles could have let the clock run down to the two-minute warning and then had a first-and-10 afterward.

Upon further review, Kelly learned he was wrong. ''That's on me. I didn't think we could...

#ChipKelly

My prediction for the Eagles is Kelly can go 4-0 to start his career, but he will need help from his defense to get past the Broncos. That will be a tall task for a team that thrives on a no huddle offense to travel to Mile High stadium where the air is thin and hard to adjust to. If he can win that game, I will not only jump on the Chip Kelly bandwagon, but I will be driving the...
