The Philadelphia Eagles were the latest victims. Remember, the Eagles came into the 2013 NFL season with high hopes of being the latest offensive juggernaut to hit the league. The Chip Kelly system were were assured, would be completely different, run too fast to defend, and change the way the NFL game is played. It doesn’t seem to be working that way.
The Denver Broncos have their own version of a quick strike offense and it got the better of the Eagles 52-20 yesterday as Peyton Manning set up a clinic on exactly how the position of quarterback should be played. Four touchdowns from Manning and a couple of scores from a sturdy Denver defense and the Philadelphia Eagles are looking at 1-3 and wondering where their newfangled offense is going.
