David Murphy and Rich Hoffman had a little pow-wow over at Philly.com in which both questioned Chip Kelly— one questioned his coaching abilities, the other his general managing abilities:

Dave: But I have to say, I think both Chip Kelly and Bill Davis got outcoached. Eight Atlanta starters were back from one of the worst defenses in the league and they looked damn good. That’s Dan Quinn, the new coach. With the Eagles, maybe it’s not the personnel.

Rich: I’m desperately trying not to jump to any conclusions, but when you look at the offensive line, I think it might be the personnel. You’re talking about Chip Kelly getting out-coached. When you look at that line, I think you’re going to find out if Chip Kelly got out-general-managed.

Maybe. But I’d argue that Atlanta was just extraordinarily amped up for the home crowd and new coach on Monday Night Football and caught the Eagles back on their heels a little bit, smelling themselves. Once the second half rolled around, it was a different story.

I put this in the Bird Droppings, but it’s worth calling out again. Watch the Eagle march down field and essentially score a touchdown (should’ve been challenged) running basically the same play four times in a row:

It’s hard to tell from the stills, but all four consisted of the running back wheeling out to the left, Jordan Matthews cutting across the middle, and one of two options: 1) the tight end streaking down the slot, or 2) the tight end and secondary wide receiver running crossing routes. Four plays, 77 yards, touchdown. Outcoach this.
