After making many questionable moves this offseason, Chip Kelly has put the future of his team on the knees of Sam Bradford. Many think the Eagles offense under Bradford can thrive because of past success; the Eagles had the second and fifth best offense in Chip's first two years. The problem is Bradford's injury history with two torn acl's. Despite that, Chip traded for Bradford, who will be the teams starting quarterback barring any injuries. It is still unknown how he will perform but here is why the Eagles will have the best offense in football.
1. Preseason Dominance
The Eagles have outscored opponents 115-53 in three preaseason games so far, averaging about 38 points a game. They have only commited two turnovers. In 3 games, the Eagles have 1,353 yards, averaging 451 yards a game. If they played 16 games on that pace, they would have 7,216 yards, which would have been the best last year. Although it is preseason, it is hard to ignore three dominant wins.
2. Bradford's Nearly Perfect Game
Bradford showed a glimpse of his old self in the Eagles 39-26 victory against the Packers. Bradford finished 10/10 for 121 yards and 3 touchdowns, with all three of his drives ending with a touchdown. His passer rating was 156.7, 1.6 less than the highest possible rating. If this is the real deal, Bradford will thrive this upcoming season. Teams will have to gameplan for Bradford and regining rushing champ Demarco Murray. Again, it is just preseason, but Bradford was basically perfect.
3. Healthy Players
Last year, Evan Mathis, Jason Kelce, Todd Herremans, and many more suffered injuries. These offensive line members are vital for an offense's success. With three starters out for a majority of time last year, the Eagles managed to be the fifth best offense in the league. As of now, there have been no injuries to major offensive players. This will provide Bradford with the space and time he needs to succeed.
