The Philadelphia Eagles seem to be liking the way new head coach Chip Kelly is putting his stamp on how the offense is going to be run this season.

According to tight end Brent Celek, what Kelly is doing is going to change the NFL.  The Eagles certainly need a jumpstart in their offense as they were ranked 29th in the league last sesson, averaging 17.5 points per contest. Celek, in his sixth season, was second on the team in receptions with 57 for 684 yards and one touchdown.

"From a communications standpoint, it’s going to change the league,” Celek said, via Philadelphia Magazine.  “I’m not going to tell you guys how, but it will. Just the way that they can communicate plays in and get us the stuff, it’s pretty cool. It’s something that I never even thought was possible in the NFL. Seeing the stuff he’s doing, he has a reason why he does everything that he does, and a reason why each play is called what it is. And it all makes sense."
The New England Patriots ran a one-word no-huddle last season with success, as they lead the league in scoring average.
