12:38 PM ET 07.26 | While most of the attention at Philadelphia Eagles training camp is on the quarterback competition, many are forgetting that the team has one heck of a running back in LeSean McCoy. In the past few seasons under Andy Reid, McCoy has put together some very impressive performances, but the former second-round pick is hoping to become "more dominant" in the team's new offense under Chip Kelly. McCoy seems very excited heading in to this season with the team looking to run the ball more often than the past. McCoy totaled 1,213 total yards in 14 games last season, but he has the opportunity watch those numbers blow up as Kelly puts more attention on developing the running game.

Hopefully he doesn't drop too many of Matt Barkley's passes. Ohh yea!

Some good old time RB stats, the kind of games I like to watch.

I'm very interested to see how Kelly's offense works in the NFL. There are some innovations that change the game (e.g., bump and run pass defense invented by the Raiders) and some that are just fads (e.g., wildcat offense of Dolphins). Curious to see which one this will be.

I am too. I don't know if he's the next Jimmy Johnson or Lou Holtz. It'll be interesting to watch, especially if they implode and the fan base goes ballistic.

The field in the NFL is 160' wide. In the CFL where Trestmans offense worked the field is 195' wide. Not saying it could not work, I am saying it turn into a theory. He will adjust, but anyone who thinks the Bears will become the Saints North all of a sudden will be very disappointed.

On topic: Whether LeSean McCoy or Chip Kelly assume the "more dominant" position is between them is their own business.

The uptempo pace could definitely have staying power.

Defending it would have more to do with defensive audibles and conditioning than actual Xs & Os.
