Alas, it begins. The Philadelphia Eagles are going to run an incredibly fast-paced offense under Chip Kelly this season. If all goes to plan, they’ll be wearing out defenses the way they did against the Washington Redskins on Monday night. And if Kelly’s up-tempo attack finds success, be prepared to hear about how opponents are faking injuries all season long.
On Monday night with Philadelphia leading 12-7 and driving in the first quarter, Redskins offensive lineman Kedric Golston went down with what was later described as cramping. As Golston was on the turf holding his leg, you could hear several Eagles yelling, “He’s faking!”
Former Redskins running back Rock Cartwright agreed.
