Eagles Defense will be key to Chip Kelly's Sucess



I will be the first to admit. I love the Philadelphia Eagles hire of Chip Kelly as their head football coach. I feel if he is as football smart as they come and could end up being one of the most innovative coaches in the National Football League. I will even go as far as saying I think he can even slightly change the way offense will be played in the National Football league in the future. Their is no doubt the Eagles will be a better offense this year and years to come under Chip Kelly. With that being said however, Chip Kelly's great offense mind is not going to end up taking the Eagles to Super Bowl. Not this year, not next year and not in five years. What is going to help bring the city of Philadelphia their first Super Bowl ever is a ferocious defense. Even with the league rapidly changing, with offenses based more on passing and teams incorporating the read offense into their playbooks, defense is what wins Super Bowls. If you look at the past Super Bowl winners the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants. Pittsburgh Steelers,, and even the 2011 Green Bay Packers team, they all had one thing in common. Their defenses were strong. They all got create pressure on the quarterback and even more importantly created turnovers. Both the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants defenses shut down Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The past few times the Eagles played the patriots, Tom Brady made the Eagles defense look like a high school football team, including this preseason. This isn't the say the Philadelphia Eagles defense won't ever be good. Within the next couple years the defense may be rebuilt well. Bill Davis could seize the opportunity and make a very good 3-4 transition. Maybe next year in the draft they draft a game changing play maker at safety. A player the Eagles haven't had since Brian Dawkins. Hopefully they will because no matter how many points the offense scores, defense wins championships.
