Perhaps the most important thing that Chip Kelly (or maybe just a regime change in general) has brought to the Eagles, is a culture change. A year ago the Eagles were a 4-12 team, that appeared to quit down the stretch. A year later, and, among other things, LeSean McCoy is running at an MVP pace. His 133-yard, two touchdown performance in tonight’s 54-11 beatdown over the Chicago Bears, had him talking, well, as confidently as he cuts.
Shady: “I think this week we got fitted for the crown, then next week we win against Dallas and get the crown for good.”

I love the confidence out of McCoy. The idea that the Cowboys defense will try to use this as bulletin-board material to get motivated to slow Shady down next week, is absolutely laughable. First off, you shouldn’t need any extra motivation for a win-or-go-home game on national television. Secondly, the Cowboys defense has been putrid recently. Even if this motivates you, you don’t have the personnel to slow Shady down.
Philly is ready for the NFC East crown.
