Eagles coach Chip Kelly still confident in QB Sam Bradford

Wednesday October 21st, 2015

Despite the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles currently sit a top the NFC East standings, quarterback Sam Bradford has under performed and struggled with turnovers. Head coach Chip Kelly doesn’t seem too worried about his quarterback, however, reiterating that he has complete confidence in Bradford at his press conference on Tuesday. 

Bradford has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns in half of his games this season, his first with the Eagles since coming over in a trade with the St. Louis Rams that sent former starting quarterback Nick Foles out west. 

Bradford currently ranks 22nd in completion percentage (63.2), 28th in passer rating (80.0) and has thrown as many interceptions as touchdowns (9).

Despite his quarterback’s mediocre play, Kelly has no plans to sit Bradford. 

"Sam is our quarterback," Kelly said at the press conference. "We have full confidence in Sam."

According to Kelly, Bradford is still getting used to a new offense. However, he did say that Bradford can’t continue to play this way against good teams. 

The Eagles take on the Carolina Panthers on the road Sunday.
