Chip Kelly: Eagles Starters Will Play Vs. Bears, RegardlessBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News Monday, December 16th, 2013
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly just finished his weekly day after game news conference and he said he’s going to play his starters next week against the Bears on the Sunday night, regardless of what happens in the Dallas-Washington game on Sunday afternoon.
I don’t think it’s a good idea, because the game might not mean anything if the Cowboys were to win their afternoon game against the Skins. The Eagles don’t benefit at all from beating the Bears, if the Cowboys beat the Redskins in the earlier game. Kelly doesn’t care, he’s going to play his starters any way and take the risk of somebody getting hurt.
“We have to get back on a winning track,” Kelly said about an hour ago at the Nova Care Complex.
Kelly also continued to defend his reasons for kicking the ball to the up backs and blockers on the kickoff team. He says they could have done a better job of making the squib kicks.
The Eagles head coach blew down any and all rumors about him taking off to Austin, Texas for the open University of Texas.
“I haven’t spoken to anybody, nor will I speak to anybody” about a college job, including Texas, Kelly said.
