Great read here by Sheil.

The statistic Chip Kelly most values - Zach Berman, Philly.com

"It's not what you do in the turnover battle, it's what you do (with the turnovers)," Kelly said. "Our defense can create four turnovers, if we go out and score no points, it doesn't matter. You say, ‘hey, we were plus-4 in turnovers today. What did the offense do with it? It's been the same exact thing as, we've turned the ball over, but our defense goes on the field and pitches a shutout. They did a great job, they picked us up. We talk about that from a statistical standpoint. That's a huge - that's a metric that we look at because I think you can control that."

Chip and the Eagles: Quarterback Thunderdome - Mark Saltveit, FishDuck.com

As I wrote in my new book "The Tao of Chip Kelly," he has the courage to not be clever, and this humility will help in the NFL, where every coaching staff is overflowing with brilliant minds. If he can grab every possible advantage before the coaches' schemes even enter the picture, Kelly's odds of being successful will be that much better.

(Jimmy note - Mark alluded to a post timing the throws of Michael Vick and Nick Foles. I had done a similar post a few months ago and came up with significantly different numbers.)

Eagles training camp preview - Running back - Some hack

Because the Eagles' season went so horribly wrong last year, Bryce Brown's season was looked at as a bright spot. However, if the Eagles were an 11-5 team, and a few Brown fumbles cost them a game, or something bigger like a first round bye, his season would have been looked at as a huge negative. The Eagles absolutely have to clean up Brown's carelessness with the football. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you turn the ball over you won't get on the field.

Always fun to get an enemy's take.

Off-season Recap of All of UK Redskin's All-22 Game Film Reviews - Kevin Ewoldt, Hogs Haven

"UK Redskin" is a contributor at SB Nation's Redskins site, Hogs Haven. I've probably linked to at least half of his film breakdowns when I ran my NFC East site. If you're interested in learning more about the Skins or just getting a little smarter about football in general, I highly recommend checking out his work.
