Bart Scott Blasts Chip Kelly: ‘He’s Giving Protein Shakes At the Wrong Time’
Not everyone is a fan of Chip Kelly.
Some analysts and players have an old-school mentality and will dismiss any sort of sports-science system that is trying to revolutionize the league.
Take former Ravens and Jets linebacker Bart Scott, for example.
"I'm rooting for the Jets and not just because I played for the Jets, but because I love a good car crash. I love a good accident waiting to happen. You have one guy who thinks he's the smartest guy in the world. Trust me, I played for Brian Billick, so I'm used to being around guys that believe that they're really smart, and Brian was. But come on now, are you kidding me? This guy needs to figure out what time to get a protein shake because obviously he's giving the protein shakes at the wrong time, his teams arent ready to play in the first half," Scott said.
He is right about that last part.
In both losses, the Eagles have come out very lethargic and not matching the energy level of their opponent. It's resulted in halftime deficits in both contests.
Scott went on to double down on the fact that Kelly is "the smartest guy in the world" when talking about the talented players he has jettisoned the past two seasons:
"He can't win. You know why he can't win? Because you can't win and tell people that you devalue great players and get rid of them just because you want to. So I think there's a little bit of karma coming back to him. Nelson Agholor hasn't replaced Jeremy Maclin. Like they're toys that you're tired of playing with because you want something new. So I hope that he loses. I hope he loses every game."
Scott is also an analyst for CBS on NFL Today on Sundays, chances are he wont be that outspoken on national television.
Although, if the Eagles fall to 0-3 Scott may decide to add insult to injury.
