Eagles sound really, really excited about HC Chip Kelly's offense

The Eagles have spent just two days in voluntary workouts with head coach Chip Kelly's offense. Not much is known about the goings-on since the practices are closed to the public and the press. But, via the Philadelphia Inquirer, it sounds like these two days have been almost life-altering for some players.
Quarterback Michael Vick @MikeVick said Kelly's offense is "something like I've never seen before."
Tight end Brent Celek @BrentCelek said, "From a communication standpoint, it's going to change the league. ... It's something that I never thought was possible in the NFL."
Of course, Celek didn't clarify what "it" is. The Inquirer's Zach Berman also noticed that Vick has added a substantial amount of upper-body muscle.

Fantasy Analysis:

Everyone's interest in the Eagles' new-look offense has already been piqued, but get ready to hear a lot of these stories throughout the summer. The only thing we really do know is that a lot of read-option has been run in these practices. Vick will be running often in Kelly's system, so maybe the extra bulk is a good thing, although I don't think it will realistically lessen his chances of getting hurt. But with Kelly at the controls, Vick, LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25, DeSean Jackson @DeseanJackson10, and Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18 could all become elite fantasy commodities.

New Coach...New Offense...New Upper Body ??? Sounds like someone is trying to sell some fans on New Season Tickets . New confusion...Same old vunerable QB with a Average back-up(Foles). Avoid the hype and a take a pass on all Eagles this year.
