Did Chip Kelly Do Something Unconventional Today?

He did.

Oh that Chip– he’s just so unconventional and zany. Jordan Raanan of NJ.com:

The skies were spitting on Tuesday morning and the forecast called for an 80 or 90 percent chance of rain. If this were any time over the past decade or so, Andy Reid would have sent his team indoors for practice, erring on the side of caution to protect his players from potential injury.

That new coach, Chip Kelly, has changed just about everything at the NovaCare Complex from the locker room setup to the cafeteria selection to the speed of practice. He even has players wearing GPS devices to track their speed and paces in practice. And in an effort to harden and prepare his team for the inclement weather they are sure to face down the road, a little rain isn’t going to alter his practice plans.

The Eagles went through their usual two-hour Organized Team Activity workout on Tuesday. Even the rehabbing Jason Kelce and Chris McCoy worked on the side field as if it were 80 degrees, sunny and dry. Wet fields be damned, they were going to get rehab work in on this rainy May afternoon because their new coach wanted it done.

Not gonna lie: Zany Chip Kelly stories are becoming my favorite narrative of 2013 thus far. Yesterday, he played Circle of Life at practice. Must be those Big Balls.

  1. I’m seeing a disturbing pattern here. it just took forever to get a guy who was smarter than everyone else to get shit canned here. How bout he wins some games first before he’s “Big Balls Chip”.

    1. Umm, he’s named that based on his Oregon reputation. Nothing to do with what he’s done here. Did you notice he’s wearing duck paraphernalia in the pic???

      1. Thanks, Fascinating, till he wins a game in the nfl and the smoothies and tunes are proven to be innovative ideas he’s ball less Chip.

        1. I agree. It’s easy to be cutting edge and innovative while everyone’s 0-0. Let’s see what happens when Chip’s ideas are actually put into practice on the field during real games. Then we’ll know if Chip’s a genius, or just another overmatched college martinet who’s loopy schemes simply don’t work in the NFL.

  2. I’m really inspired along with your writing talents neatly as} with the structure in your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice high quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today..

  3. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

  4. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. kudos

  5. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your web site.
