Chip Kelly and his Philadelphia Eagles got a win over the Carolina Panthers. It is the preseason and won’t count for the 2013 season and it won’t help Kelly take his Eagles to the play-offs but it is still a win.

Kelly is over the hump now. He has his first win in the NFL under his belt and he is proving that his offense can get it done in the NFL. Many were questioning whether or not Kelly could be successful in the NFL.

He is showing that he can get it done and he is showing the Eagles are turning things around for the Philadelphia fans. Michael Vick had a decent showing in the game, he went 9-10 for 105 yards. He did throw one interception and that has to be driving Chip Kelly nuts.

Then Kelly used Matt Barkley who had a problem completing passes. He only completed 8 of his 14 attempts and showed he still has work to do to make the transition into an NFL caliber quarterback.

Kelly’s defense didn’t do too bad either. They were able to keep Cam Newton out of the end zone and they held Newton to only 5 yards rushing showing that they could contain the quarterback.

Kelly could be turning things around in Philadelphia. Only time well tell the real story, but for now things are looking up.
