Saturday Notebook - Iggles Blitz
Chip Kelly changed a lot when he took over the Eagles and arguably the biggest difference is how he handles injuries. Andy Reid was open and detailed with his injury information.

Ertz: I can help solve Eagles' red-zone problems - CSN Philly
The solution to his puzzling, season-long red-zone problems could be staring Eagles coach Chip Kelly right in the face. Zach Ertz isn’t the type to publicly lobby for more playing time or second-guess his coach’s play calling through the media, but he’s waiting to have his number called more often going forward, especially when the Eagles get inside the opposing 20-yard line.
