The Eagles had team pictures this morning at the NovaCare Complex, and much like his fast-paced offense, Chip Kelly was proud of his fast-paced picture posing. I don't think I really have anything to add here, so I'm just going to post Kelly's quotes verbatim. He got pretty passionate about it:
"We had to get a good photo, which was first and foremost. We set record, four minutes and forty seconds. We got everybody -- the entire team, every position group, the coaches, and the training staff done in four minutes and forty seconds. The was the most eff... literally, I'm not even joking, it was the most efficient photo I've ever seen. Our guys were, it was like, there were guys dressed in their full uniform, and we had our meeting at 9:30. They were just ready to go, and we knew what we wanted to get done. We started at 10:00, and I looked at my watch at 10:04:40, we were done everything, which was awesome."
"It was tempo. It was as good a tempo, and I would challenge anybody, and I'm talking... We got our team photo done, we got our individual position coaches and players done at their positions, we got our coaching staff photo done, and we got our training staff photo done in four minutes and forty seconds. It was awesome."
"We had to coach the photographers a little bit because they were... they wanted to... one of the guys thought he was Ansel Adams. We said 'Let's get this thing taken and let's go,' you know what I mean? It's not like it's going to be hanging in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It's going to go in someone's office somewhere, so let's just get it done."
• If the Eagles somehow win the Super Bowl this year, the Philadelphia Museum of Art might have some interest.
• I think Chip is feeling good about his shutout yesterday.
