Quick Chip blitzes the NFL

I had two compelling reasons to match last night's NFL contest pitting the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES against the WASHINGTON REDSKINS.
Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III is on my FANTASY FOOTBALL team. After a rusty first half, RG3 threw for 329 yards and a pair of scores.
I also had to see the NFL debut of CHIP KELLY, the former coach of MY BELOVED OREGON DUCKS.
Would Kelly be able to adapt his frenetic offense to the rigors and defensive speed of the pros?
At least after the initial showing, Philadelphia's 33-27 victory, the answer is a definitive "yes."
The Eagles unleashed a first-half offensive blitz against the 'Skins, with their first five scoring drives averaging 1 minute and 44 seconds. At the end of the first half, the Eagles had piled up more yards -- 341 -- than 15 teams had total during Sunday's games.
I must be too accustomed to watching Oregon, but I actually thought Chip's Eagles offense seemed a little slow.
