Philadelphia Eagles Chip Kelly and Sports Science

Last season Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly introduced Sports Science to his players. Very little was known about it before last season but Kelly has brought it to the forefront.

Sports Science  is a discipline that studies the application of treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports medicine. The study of sport science traditionally incorporates areas of physiologypsychology, and biomechanics but also includes other topics such as nutrition and diet. ~ Wikipedia

The impact on the players and the Eagles in just one season is impressive. There were few injuries to the team as a whole. Plus, they ran fast, long distance plays. The offense spent little time on the field during each possession. So the defense needed to be in great shape as well. Without Sports Science none of that is possible.

Do you think with the success of the Eagles Sports Science will catch on with other NFL Teams?
