Chip Kelly Has No Complaints

Eagles_Chip_2013Will some NFL defenses fake injuries to slow down the Eagles fast-paced offense? Probably. Will Chip Kelly complain about it? No.

When Kelly was asked about talk that the Chiefs might have been faking defensive injuries on Thursday night, he nipped it in the bud and said thats simply not an issue hes going to address. Kelly said he has too many issues to deal with on his own team and wont get into the business of questioning other teams.

Never, ever going to get into that, Kelly said, via PhillyMag.com. We need to execute better and not turn the football over. Thats the least of my worries right now.

Philly fans began booing when Chiefs starting cornerback Sean Smith went down with an injury on Thursday night, but it wouldnt make any sense for Smith to fake an injury. When defenses fake injuries, they typically do it to rotate defensive linemen, or to have a linebacker come out for an extra defensive back in the nickel package. If youre going to cheat by telling a player to pretend hes hurt, youre not going to do it with a starting cornerback.
