Eagles coach Chip Kelly admits that he’s to blame for a lot of the problems his team is having on offense.
“I’ve got to do a better job play calling,” Kelly said today.
Asked if he questions his own plays, Kelly answered, “You have to.”
“They’re not successful,” Kelly said of the plays he’s calling. “You can’t sit there and say it’s working. We’re not successful on first and second down. We haven’t been successful in the first half of games.”
One thing Kelly won’t question, however, is his personnel moves. Although Kelly’s two biggest offseason acquisitions — trading for Sam Bradford and signing DeMarco Murray — haven’t looked great so far, he believes he has the right players to run his offense.
“I think we have the right personnel here, no question about that,” Kelly said.
If they have the right personnel, and the offense still isn’t getting the job done, that suggests that Kelly’s right: His play calling isn’t good enough.
