Chip Kelly Raves About Gerald McCoyOctober 9th, 2013
Chip Kelly took to the podium in Philly moments ago and was gushing over Gerald McCoy. The cool thing was he wasn’t asked about McCoy directly.
“Gerald McCoy may be the best 3-techinique in the league. He’s explosive. He’s fast. He’s dynamic. He can run,” Kelly said.
Kelly, who talks at least as fast as Raheem Morris, is very intrigued by the speed of Buccaneers defenders. He says they have no weaknesses in that area. “Their overall team speed’s outstanding.”
In the running game, “you may increase a gap because they’re not as big as some teams,” Kelly said of the Bucs. But he explained that gap closes quickly.
The Bucs will need to revive their 2012 NFL-best run defense. It’s been good this season but not great. Bucs fans can hope that the Bucs’ speed will neutralize Philly’s offense. Given the stalled Bucs offense, that may be Tampa Bay’s best hope for their first victory.
