Chip Kelly continues to serve as shadowy puppetmaster of Eagles

Bleeding Green Nation has some interesting tales from the Eagles' offseason workouts that once more paint Chip Kelly as a menace to the league rules, operating from the shadows: - Safety Ed Reynolds, still a Stanford Cardinal for a few weeks, cannot attend team meetings with the Eagles, per league rules. Therefore, receives mysterious video podcasts after the meetings that appear on his device, so that he may watch them at his leisure. - Nose tackle Beau Allen let it slip that he first met Kelly when the coach hit him in the leg with a remote control car, which it has been theorized is used to simulate motion to which the defense reacts. This is due to Article 21, Section2 of the NFL rules which state that a coach cannot be on the field during "Phase One" of the offseason workout program.

Bleeding Green Nation has some interesting tales from the Eagles' offseason workouts that once more paint Chip Kelly as a menace to the league rules, operating from the shadows:

  • Safety Ed Reynolds, still a Stanford Cardinal for a few weeks, cannot attend team meetings with the Eagles, per league rules. Therefore, receives mysterious video podcasts after the meetings that appear on his device, so that he may watch them at his leisure. 
  • Nose tackle Beau Allen let it slip that he first met Kelly when the coach hit him in the leg with a remote control car, which it has been theorized is used to simulate motion to which the defense reacts. This is due to Article 21, Section2 of the NFL rules which state that a coach cannot be on the field during "Phase One" of the offseason workout program.

Let it be known that there is no article or section in the rulebook that will keep Chip Kelly from his team. BGN asks, "what's next, drones?"

And the answer is yeah, probably.
