Eagles Kelly: This Week's Challenge is Drew Brees!

The Philadelphia Eagles will begin their playoff quest this weekend against the New Orleans Saints at Lincoln Financial Field. For Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, there really is only one big challenge:

Yeah, the challenge is Drew Brees. I mean, he’s just so talented and has such a great command of what they are doing. You’ve got five guys in a progression, he can go from one to five like that (snapping fingers). He understands coverage and he understands how you’re playing them and he’s very, very difficult to fool. He’s been around for a long time. It’s a lot like the matchup when you’re playing Peyton Manning. They are so skilled in their offense and what they are doing, you’ve got to present a lot of different looks to him and he’s got a lot of weapons to throw to, and I think that’s what makes them so diverse is you just can’t hone in and say, ‘Hey, we take away this one guy, we are going to be in pretty good shape.’ There are so many different weapons there. You have a guy there that makes all five weapons available to them so I think that’s going to be a huge challenge.”
