Chip Kelly and the Eagles: cheating or smart?



quote:

“NFL rules say that, a stipulation, is that the music needs to be turned down with 20 seconds left on the play clock, when the opposing offense is on the field,” Spadaro said. “So, Chip [Kelly], said well if there is no rule about when our offense is on the field, let’s play the music. And his thought is, well, we’re used to playing with the music. This perhaps limits the defenses ability to communicate or causes a little bit of confusion. Once the knee goes down and the play clock goes down to 40 seconds, the music goes on right up until the snap. The Eagles are getting all the music that they have at practice—they’re used to it. They’re are not confused. This is why they’re doing it. Now what’s going to happen, ultimately perhaps, the league is going to have to amend the rule or every other team in the league is going to try to do it.”

re: Chip Kelly and the Eagles: cheating or smart?


this part was interesting from the reddit post

quote:

I wasn't the only person who noticed this, because I had sports talk radio on this morning, and a lot of people were calling in to talk about how loud and constant the music was last night. The show's host said that it wasn't like that last week against the Patriots (probably because they know Belichick would've noticed what was going on and taken issue with it).

Kraft has major major pull with the owners. Bill gives him the sign and the plug gets instantly pulled on this. Thats why you didnt see it last week

Well it isn't against the rules so it's not cheating.

But I don't see why you'd want it to be loud when your QB is trying to make calls. I guess they won't be making many play changes in their hurry up.

This is a non-factor.

Those guys on the field are dialed in and won't even notice music.

But not championships (at least the important kind).
