It's all over espn and twitter so I don't think at this point a link is needed
How do you run the read option with Foles? LOL
And Vick would be put on IR after the first series.
Strange hire. They'll probably go for Geno Atkins. Good luck with all that.
LOL. Stupid Eagles. The read option will be solved in a year or two, and then what?
This guy is a grade A cheater in college, and he won't be able to recruit his way with handouts and 54 "cool" kiddie Nike uniforms in Philly.
Jackson and Maclin are the fastest WR duo in the NFL. Then you add in McCoy? That offense will be scary.
dont worry bro. we've got Monte Kiffin. he's so old he's LITERALLY seen it all.
Which will go the same way at the zone blitz, wildcat, run-and-shoot, west coast, etc.
Kill the quarterback every time they run it. Problem solved. You can't find five read option quarterbacks to put on your roster for when they all get hurt.
He doesn't have to have a running QB. Belichick has borrowed a lot of his concepts for the hurry up type offense they run.
So now we’ll have two college type offenses in the NFC East with a DC who could not stop college offenses.
Now Chip gets to torch Monte's defense twice a year.
:laugh2: So true. 1/4 of our games.
I really liked the Kiffin hire but this news is pretty troubling.
Kelly is a good coach, but should we really be living in fear of a college spread coach who's never coached in the NFL? He's done wonders at Oregon, but prior to that he was a assistant at Columbia and New Hampshire. Nice hire for the Eagles, but tap the breaks.
Exactly. It will get figured out by d coordinators.
Like Parcells and others said, hit the qb every time they run it.
You're joking, right?
Wow. That O may work in the NFL or it may fail miserably. Will be fun to watch.
Vick will be gone, so the read option is out the window.
None of Celek, Avant, or Cooper are all that fast, so it's still just 2 WRs you really have to worry about with their speed. Teams have been doing that for decades. McCoy is fast, but so are lots of RBs in the league. There is only so much that Kelly will be able to do without the read option, and it'd be almost impossible for him to run the no huddle the way he does at Oregon.
Just to clarify, my initial comment that the Eagles don't have the speed of Oregon meant relative to the competition. Oregon had guys at every position faster than the other team. They won't have that advantage as much at the NFL level.
Said no one ever!
Can only imagine how mad Phil Knight and Oregon are after this. And have to think the coming NCAA sanctions aren't going to be pretty for him to reverse course. And as always in these situations, the biggest losers are the recruits. At-least he made his intentions known before national LOI day.
Somewhere Monte Kiffin is cowering in fear after that USC/Oregon game this past season. (Before anybody gets offended, just a joke since he can't seem to escape him. From the Pac12 to the NFC East.)
The point is, not every player is NFL capable, even at USC, so its a lot harder to exploit a certain weakness in the NFL.
Step it up Kiffin!
The memo said fear everything other teams do, mock everything we do.
