Chip Kelly met with reporters Thursday for the final time before Sunday's visit from the Detroit Lions. He was asked how close his offense is right now to the ideal he might have envisioned when he brought it from Oregon.
"I don't have an ideal. Our job is very simply to move the ball and score points. I don't really care what it looks like," Kelly said. "The offense we run here is not Oregon's offense, it's the Philadelphia Eagles' offense. It was put together by a group of really smart guys on the offensive side of the ball, and everybody contributed to it. There are some things we did at Oregon, there are some things that (offensive line coach) Jeff Stoutland did at Alabama, there are some things that (wide receivers coach) Bobby Bicknell did with the Buffalo Bills, there's some things that (quarterbacks coach) Billy Lazor brought when he was in the NFL and when he was at Virginia. There's things Pat (Shurmur, the offensive coordinator) brought from Cleveland."
*Kelly said Nick Foles is "taking a lot of ownership of what we're doing here."
