KCAL9′s Melanie Woodrow reports music fans are wondering if the Forum will become “the” place for artists to play.
A season of transition brought a new coach with a breath of fresh air and a new identity as a team. There were adjustments along the way as Chip Kelly adjusted to life as an NFL coach after serving an entire career at the college level, but his players bought in to the mentality Kelly introduced to them and fought their way to an NFC East division title few saw coming before the season started.
A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
The Philadelphia Eagles will need their defensive secondary to be on their toes this weekend with Drew Brees leading the New Orleans Saints in to town with a monster of a passing offense. Fortunately for the Eagles, the defensive backfield is getting healthier in time for the playoffs.
Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.
Drew Brees will be much more successful against the Eagles defense than back-up Kyle Orton was in the final game of the regular season. But, if the Eagles can knock Brees off his game, then the Saints could quickly run out of options to try and keep up wit the Eagles offense.
It was not pretty at times. It was not exactly how the San Diego Chargers likely drew it up on the drawing board. It was certainly something one would not want to watch over and over again in the film room.
Blown opportunities will drive any NFL head coach nuts, especially when you are trying to set a new attitude following several years of losing.
For the San Diego Chargers, this Sunday’s game in Philadelphia will be a good test as to whether or not the team can put the season-opening catastrophe against the Houston Texans behind them.
After a heart-breaking 31-28 loss to the Houston Texans Monday evening in the season opener, the San Diego Chargers turn their attention to the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday for a short-week matchup.
