Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly isn't satisfied with a 10-6 season where his team won the NFC East division title in his first NFL season.
“We were just OK,” Kelly said.
After last season, the Eagles cut wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
“I just think it’s a decision we made after we sat down at the end of the season and evaluated everything,” Kelly said. “We did it at every position, whether it’s coaches, scouts, players or whatever. Where do we see ourselves going? And how can we improve this? I don’t think it was a short-term thing. I think it was well-thought-out and everybody had a pretty good understanding and everybody weighed in on it and made a decision to move forward.”
After a strong start, Kelly is looking for more.
“You’ve got to make sure that they’re not content being where they are,” Kelly said. “I think if you’re content with 10 wins and winning the division you’re probably shortchanging yourself and the team. We did that. What’s the next step? How can we improve upon that? We’re trying to get a bunch of guys that are never complacent in terms of, ‘All right, we’ve arrived.’ We haven’t arrived. We’re looking to work and strive to get better and better and better. That’s part of the deal. So I think that’s the thing we’re always trying to emphasize with these guys.”
