We’ll see if Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arian feels this way after dealing with Chip Kelly on Sunday.

Arians has done a marvelous job in his first season as the Cardinals head coach, and has his team sitting at 7-4 with a good shot at making the playoffs.

The Cardinals will take on the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, who have one of the great innovators of the read-option as their head coach.

Arians doesn’t seem to impressed by the offense, and according to Birds 24/7, Arians called it “a great college offense, but said it’s not an NFL offense.”

The defensive coordinators in this league are too good. I think once they went and studied it . . . it’s still a great offense, a great college offense, when you put a great athlete back there,” Arians said, via PhillyMag.com. “But when you’re facing great athletes with the the speed that’s in the NFL and they’re chasing these guys, unless you’re superhuman, you’re gonna get hurt sooner or later. Or not hurt, but beat up and bruised up. You don’t want your quarterback feeling bruised up when he’s trying to throw and be accurate.”
