PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Hours before the Philadelphia Eagles put pads on for the first time under new coach Chip Kelly, tailgating fans gathered in parking lots and waited for the Linc to open its gates.

More than 65,000 tickets were distributed for Sunday’s practice. As former NBA MVP and Philadelphia 76ers star Allen Iverson famously once said: “Practice! Not a game! Practice!”

That’s how excited they are about Kelly and their beloved Eagles.

Kelly was lured away from Oregon after the Eagles fired Andy Reid following a 4-12 season. Kelly had tremendous success in college, leading the Ducks to a 46-7 record in four seasons and turning the program into a national powerhouse.

Now, he’s bringing his high-octane, up-tempo offense and unique overall approach to the NFL. Everyone is eager to see his transition.
