Goldner: Whither Chip Kelly?

What Are You Doing, Chip?

While I did not expect him to immediately institute his Oregon trademarks, I did expect to see him going for it more often on fourth down, especially in situations where the numbers called for it—and generally, making decisions to maximize the Eagles win probability.

It’s four weeks into the season, and too many times I’ve asked my TV, “What are you doing, Chip?” Today against the Broncos, there were a couple of questionable decisions.

Ted and I were discussing Kelly's surprising decisions yesterday as they happened, and I made note of them in my recap. It's interesting to see the EP numbers that correspond to the questionable calls. I think it's safe to posit that Chip didn't cost his team the game with these choices, but he certainly didn't do them any favors.
