Things have changed in Philadelphia, and if the fruit smoothies after practice aren’t an indication, than the tempo and speed at which the Eagles operate is.
One person who can the change like night and day is running back Shady McCoy. McCoy while talking to the Philadelphia Daily News, says that Kelly’s practice is “a freakin track meet.”
We’re running so much — it’s like a freakin’ track meet, like a relay. We need some extra guys,” McCoy said Thursday, after the Eagles wrapped up their first three-day minicamp under new coach Chip Kelly. McCoy was explaining how he thinks there will be plenty of work for himself, Bryce Brown and Chris Polk.
“I’ve never played in an offense where the tempo was so high,” McCoy said. “There’s so many plays, so fast … as soon as you’re done, you’ve got to be ready for the next play.”
McCoy called it a faster version of a no-huddle offense, and looks forward to wearing defenses down.
