We're a day late on this one but I just got around to reading Reuben Frank's article about Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick having a ton of respect for Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly and the job he's done in the past.
The pair have obviously spent some time together prior to Kelly joining the Birds and the article touches on much of that and digs a little deeper. It's pretty interesting to hear one of the game's greatest coaches -- love him or hate him -- speak so highly of your favorite team's new guy in town.
The most quotable bit:
“He’s a very innovative, creative guy. He's got a great mind, he’s smart, and I think he'll take advantage of whatever resources he can. We’ll see what that is. I’m sure he’ll give us plenty of trouble.”
As for the Eagles-Patriots co-practice? All reports point to Tom Brady being really good at football.
