More Fourth Down Challenges For Chip Kelly
As an Eagles fan, I've criticized Chip Kelly a few times for not bringing his propensity for going for it on fourth down to the NFL. At Oregon, he would rarely punt and set the standard for analytical play-calling. While he has had tremendous success already in the NFL, Kelly has been a lot less "risky" in those fourth down decisions. To be fair, it is not the same environment as when he was at Oregon. The job security is not the same. The talent is not the same. The kickers and punters are not the same.
On Sunday, in a heated matchup between 5-1 teams, Kelly faced several intriguing fourth down decisions.
