Full Version: Suppose Kelly is focusing on the defense intentionally
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
This is a good point by Hofmann, and it has some validity. Kelly has been praised for his ability to learn and adjust. He has always contended that he doesn't need a certain kind of QB to win and, to a degree he has proven that. What if he looks at it that he now needs to stop the other team from scoring? He missed with Smith (supposedly) and what if he thinks that Ingram or some other back can be more effective though less spectacular than Shady and his $12 mil.
And what if he has decided that Mariota isn't realistically available, and that he can make his offense good enough with Foles and a running back to be named later, and that the spectacular pile of cap money will best be spent on adding a big-time corner (Byron Maxwell?) and a big-time safety (Devin McCourty?) and a big-time pass rusher (provided he doesn't have Alonso in mind for that).

What if he looked at the numbers and realized that the Eagles allowed 400 points last season, and that only six teams in the whole entire history of the NFL have allowed 400 points and still made the playoffs.

What if Chip Kelly really wants to build a defense more than he wants Marcus Mariota? This question now has to be considered.

I have been thinking about this and sure hope it is the case.
We can only hope, but at least there is hope because we have plenty of cap room to fix our defence.
