EAGLES’ OFFENSE, OUT OF ITS DEPTH IN 2014, WON’T BE IN 2015!

By Harry Allison

There is no question that a lack of depth at the offensive skill positions last year hampered the Eagles’ play-calling:

“Yes, there were times when you were calling plays and thinking, ‘Who is in the game?’” Chip Kelly (eating the depth chart above) told CSNPhily.com’s Reuben Frank.

“The play call changed a little bit.”

It speaks to the master plan behind the Eagles’ roster overhaul that we’ve all speculated about this offseason. A priority for the Eagles was not necessarily having one or two stars at the receiver or running back position, but a deep group of skill position players.

They need to rotate in and out because of how much they run in the up-tempo offense, so Kelly prioritized a top-to-bottom upgrade to be able to call the same plays no matter who is in the game—something he didn’t feel like he could do in 2014.
