Chip_Kelly_2013The Eagles have a bye this weekend, close to the time when coach Chip Kelly was used to wrapping up regular seasons at Oregon.

But Kelly said this week there’s no way he’d trade another five weeks of regular season for the “break” that usually came before he’d take the Ducks to a bowl game in January.

“My schedule, the day the season was over, was a lot worse than my schedule here because you’re planes, trains and automobiles recruiting from Sunday night until Friday afternoon and hustling back and practicing, getting a practice in Friday afternoon, practice Saturday, practice Sunday, get back on a plane and fly around the country chasing down recruits,”
