Chip Kelly & the Sucker Play

I’ve written before about The Tao of football coach Chip Kelly, but Charles Fischer at FishDuck.com has another great example — the “Sucker Play.” He doesn’t mean a bet designed for fools, but rather a running play Oregon used against USC in their 62 point annihilation of the Trojan’s defense. (That game led defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, a football legend who invented the Tampa-2 defense, to quit and take a job with the Dallas Cowboys as penance, though his feckless son Lane didn’t take the hint.)

Kenny Phillips is still sitting out of practice during the Eagles’ organized team activities, according to multiple league sources. Phillips, a sixth-year veteran who has battled knee injuries throughout his career, is resting the left knee that was repaired in 2009 through microfracture surgery. He isn’t likely to practice Friday. But the 26-year-old former Giants safety is expected to participate in the team’s final camp, a June 4-6 mandatory camp that will wrap up the first spring season under new coach Chip Kelly, according to a source close to Phillips.

It's been well noted that Michael Vick and Nick Foles have been splitting the first-string repetitions during the Eagles' current round of organized team activities, but Kelly made it clear to reporters this week that he won't call a winner among Vick, Foles and rookie Matt Barkley anytime soon.

Chip Kelly likes to shave time. He's the kind of guy who seeks the quickest route to work and probably could have already edited four words out of this story.
