Donovan McNabb sounds skeptical of Chip Kelly’s offense

Donovan McNabb lasted 11 seasons in Philadelphia. He sounds skeptical that the new offense being ushered in by new Eagles coach Chip Kelly can last as long.

McNabb told CSNPhilly.com that the read option is “just a fad,” and he thinks the Eagles are going to struggle to keep up with Kelly’s fast-paced attack all season.

“I don’t know if any offensive player would want to run 90 plays in a game. If you’re running 90 plays in a game, that means your defense is pretty awful and you’re running entirely too many plays,” McNabb said. “At Oregon, [Kelly] may have ran 75 plays in a game, but you’re not going to run 85, 90, not in the NFL, and teams and defensive coordinators are a lot better than what you’re going to see in college.”

McNabb acknowledged that the Eagles’ offense has looked good so far, but he believes it’s also important to be able to play ball control offense, especially with a lead.

This is coming from a guy who would puke in the huddle while in Philly and wasn’t able to run a 2 minute offense while in Washington because the coaches thought he was out of shape.

Mcnabb has consistently shown he is a "hater" ever since since he retired.

I need someone to please explain why his number will be retired?

He is no Reggie White.

Re: Donovan McNabb sounds skeptical of Chip Kelly’s offense

MacNabb may be hatin', but he has a point.

What exactly is the benefit of aiming at running 90 plays a game in the NFL?
What is the benefit of only using half the clock on every snap?

If you are losing in the latter part of the 4th quarter by more than 7, ok, but otherwise, aiming at 80-90 offensive snaps, seems to me Vick is going to be hurt and in IR by week 4 instead of his usual week 8-9.

More opportunities to score means more scoring probably. SP used Operation Ambush in the SB to extricate an extra possession. I wish the Saints went more no huddle than they do now.

Re: Donovan McNabb sounds skeptical of Chip Kelly’s offense

What's wrong with innovation?!?

The Run & Shoot had its day and was exposed by the Bills against Houston in a come from behind playoff game...

But it had an effect on today's game with receivers making reads and predetermined adjustiments to routes...

Sid Gilman gave us what evolved into the modern "pro set" and downfield passing game; many thought he was whack then...

It may fail, it may end up succeeding but the spirit of innovation should never cease...

I'm not so sure Sean Payton hasn't gotten his proper, positive due besides a beatdown from the lawyer masking as a commissioner; some of the things he is doing really is amazing...
