Clearly, Chip Kelly was an idiot. Or something.
Eagles running back DeMarco Murray, freed from the shackles of the coach who gave him a huge contract and didn’t use him, just took his first touch of the Pat Shurmur era 54 yards for a touchdown, giving the Eagles a quick 7-0 lead.
It was the longest run of the season for Murray, who entered the game with 633 yards, or 1,212 fewer than he had last year when he led the league in rushing yards.
Of course, Ryan Mathews started at running back for the Eagles, so it’s not as if Murray’s vengeance is perfect.
