Jason Peters was not a big fan of Chip Kelly or his practices when he was the Eagles head coach.  The Pro Bowl offensive lineman says that the practices were intense under Kelly.

“The same practices that we did in training camp were the same spring practices, exactly the same, so it’s pretty much we had training camp the whole offseason,” he said, via Andrew Kulp of CSNPhilly.com. “Even OTAs were the same exact practice. It kind of wore us down.”

“We practiced on Tuesdays when Chip was here, and you felt it on Sundays. I did anyway,” he recalled. “If you run 100 times in a row, back to back to back, don’t you think your 50th time you’re going to be a little slower? But if you get a little bit of a rest, you’re going to be a little bit faster.”

Peters said Kelly’s system was too easy for opposing defenses to figure out. Though, he did say the Eagles’ struggles can’t be blamed solely on that.

“[The coaches] call the play, and we execute it,” Peters said. “But when the [opponents] know, and they’re professionals too, and they know what the play is, it’s tough.”
