I did not type this story at normal speed.

A recent graduate of the Chip Kelly school of typing, I whizzed through this yarn at warp speed. Where normally it might take me one hour to pound out a story this size after doing the research and editing down of ideas, this one took about 15 minutes.

Like Chip Kelly’s Philadelphia Eagles, I promise to get faster.

In the first Monday Night Football game of the season, Kelly’s Eagles were unveiled to the sporting public and the wow factor rolled into Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. If anybody had doubts that Kelly’s high-octane offence that he employed at the University of Oregon for the Ducks could not work in the NFL, think again.

Against the Washington Redskins last Monday in their 33-27 victory, the Eagles looked unstoppable with their pedal-to-the-metal, go-go offence, one which ripped off an astounding 53 plays in the first half alone.
