Chip Kelly on Eagles' performance: I was booing myself

Sunday September 7th, 2014

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly Sunday told reporters he was 'booing himself' during parts of the game, and that 'the guy calling plays' was among several things that weren't working well, according to Philadelphia Daily News reporter Les Bowen.

Kelly's self-critical comments came after Philadelphia's 34-17 win over Jacksonville, a game in which the Eagles trailed 17-0 in the second half. The Eagles ran off 34 unanswered points to win the game on the back of 322 passing yards and two touchdowns from quarterback Nick Foles, including a 68-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin. Running backs Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy also combined for 145 yards on the ground.  

This is not the first time Kelly has evaluated his own efforts by a tough scale. Earlier this year, Kelly gave himself a "grade" of 58.8 for his debut season coaching in the NFL after he won 10 of 17, or 58.8 percent, of his games.
