So [Fitzpatrick] had a great command of that offense when he was running it up in Buffalo, and I think it’s probably been the easiest transition for him in terms of anybody else, because of his familiarity with Chan, and what he wants to do and how he’s going to call things. It’s been awful. The Eagles’ rushing attack is historically bad, which is a really bad sign for this team.
The Jets are 2-0 on the season, 2-0 against the spread and 1-1 with the over/under total.
“I think Ryan and DeMarco are similar type players“, Kelly said.
The one thing that stands out with them, as a whole defensively, is just the turnovers that they have created. That didn’t happen. The Eagles are now 0-2, having lost to the Atlanta Falcons and the Dallas Cowboys, but more importantly the team looks nothing like the efficient offensive machine fans have come to expect under Kelly.
Actually, Philadelphia’s offense is slightly faster than it was past year.
“Nothing worked”, said Eagles head coach Chip Kelly after the game. “This weekend, we’ll see if the ball bounces our way”.
At the beginning of the season, the New York Jets did not appear to be one of the more formidable teams on the Eagles’ schedule. Another loss in week three against the New York Jets will be the tipping point for football-fueled chaos in southeastern Pennsylvania.
“We’ve got to continue to help Sam out”, Matthews said, via CSNPhilly.com. We did a great job.
The discovery of a pattern or tell by the quarterback would certainly offer an explanation for the Eagles’ first two losses of the season.
The Seahawks, whose scheme is heavily based on zone blocking, saw Marshawn Lynch rush for only 41 yards on 15 carries against the Packers on Sunday. The Eagles might get a really high draft pick next year? He released Mathis, the two-time Pro Bowl left guard, because he wanted a new contract.
According to Reuben Frank of CSN Philly, Eagles running back DeMarco Murray, the team’s marquee off-season acquisition, left practice today with a hamstring injury. Guys like Mychal Kendricks and Cedric Thornton might be out this week but they should be back within a few weeks. The team did not give details of the injury or a timetable for return.
Murray was on the practice field Thursday, but as Kelly said, he wasn’t taking part in drills, instead watching from the sideline in a hat.
Nick Foles took a step back in 2014 for Philadelphia with an 81.4 passer rating after a 119.2 mark in 2013, and was traded to St. Louis for Sam Bradford. And Bradford has played just one decent half in two games and already has four interceptions. Bair played in all 16 games last season, but was the odd man out with the emergence of Hart as a backup. He’s 66 receiving yards shy of becoming the 45th player with 10,000. The Eagles have looked like a complete dumpster fire to this point in the regular season, but I can’t imagine a scenario in which Kelly’s offense doesn’t find some sort of rhythm. The 31-year-old Ryans is proving to be a bit of liability after coming off his second career Achilles injury. “That’s what I need to bring to the table”.
