Former Eagles quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski told 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly that he doesn’t believe Chip Kelly’s offense will succeed in the NFL with the Eagles. “It’s going to be interesting to see if this style of offense projects to the NFL,” Jaws said, per PhillyMag.com. “I’m going to say no.” “I just don’t see NFL passing concepts in this offense. It’s a movement offense by the quarterback, off the run-action, off the read-action. A lot of short, quick passes, dart routes, bubble screens. Very few plays down the field with NFL passing concepts.” Jaws went on to continue to explain his reasoning. “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.” I got a feeling Kelly and his offense will be just fine.  He’s not going to run things the same way he did at Oregon.  I believe Kelly is well aware that some things won’t work in the NFL and he’ll make the proper adjustments.   Need NFL Tickets?

  • I ADMIRE RONS INSIGHT BUT AS AN EAGLE FAN WE CAN ONLY HOPE ANYTHING WORKS, BUT DIDNT CHIP SAY WE WOULD TAYLOR HIS PLAYS TO THE QUARTERBACK-
  • I am not an Eagle fan I just love foot ball.What the eagle will be doing is a another side of the west coast offense 1.one keep the ball in your hands 2.two it eat up time 3.three it keeps the Defense on the field.But let's be real here it's all starts with blocking the QB'S no matter who it is need time to find someone to throw the ball to.And one last thing in that kind of offense the QB's get hit less.
