Eagles vs. Redskins: NFL, watch out for Chip Kelly's offense

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Though one half, Chip Kelly is making mincemeat of the Washington Redskins. And that's putting it nicely.

Chip Kelly made his NFL debut with a bang: 26 points. 341 yards on 53 plays.

Oh, and I'm writing this at halftime. That's nothing short of ridiculous:

Michael Vick had 190 yards and a pair of touchdowns. LeSean McCoy had 115 yards on 20 carries. And all this happened. Yes, get to your fantasy league and pick them up now.

Some of Philadelphia's ridiculous numbers have to deal with a Redskins offense that couldn't hang onto the ball, turning the ball over on two of their first four plays and possessing it for less than ten minutes in the first half. Part of it was a relentless onslaught of intriguing formations and elite athleticism unleashed at an absolutely frenetic pace by the former Oregon head coach.

Kelly's ability to adjust to the NFL was questioned by many of the media who believed the physically superior athletes in the NFL would eat "gimmickry" alive.

After one half, it appears those people were very, very, very wrong.

They ran sets like this (note the unbalanced line)
