Why Eagles all want to be wrong at once

07:01 AM ET 05.31 | Chip Kelly's is a chaos theory, of sorts, designed to confuse the defense on the fly. But both sides are being time-squeezed; the potential exists for the offense to be confused, or not be able to adjust to say, a different blitz look than it expected. Center Jason Kelce talked about this earlier in the week: "If we're trying to push the tempo, all of a sudden I'm trying to change the protection while the quarterback's giving the cadence, because he's trying to go as fast as HE can, the backs don't get it, or the tight ends don't get it -- that's the biggest thing. If we're going to be wrong, we'd rather all be wrong." ... Wideout Jason Avant said the same thing a slightly different way: "If everyone does the wrong thing at the right time, it'll still work."

"If everyone does the wrong thing at the right time, it'll still be the same old Eagles."

Folks we might just have another Circus in town. I have this mental image of a big black car and 11 clowns trying to get in and out of it at the same time.

If 2 wrongs don't make a right, than 11 wrongs won't do it either.

And the 12th wrong is a flag for too many men on the field.

He must be using very small sponges, then.

We did 2 pages on watermelon yesterday.

I wish they'd just let my Iggles out of the news. I love my team but I'm sick of reading about Chip "Back Up The Moving Van Before The NCAA Get's Ya" Kelly and "Fumbles" Vick.

Sound offensive philosophy.

It's still early, but if things keep up like this maybe an adjustment should be made. Will be interesting to see if Kelly adapts or forces the scheme.

Must have stunned them with a real winner.

He is certainly a guy who can convince you of stuff.
