Jason Peters: Under Chip Kelly, “we got rid of” any vets that spoke up

Jul 28, 2016 at 5:04 PM--


Veteran Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters is the latest of new San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly's former players to speak out against him.

"Last year ... the last couple of years, there wasn't a lot of vets. And any vet that stood up and had something to say, we got rid of them," said Peters in an interview with the media that appeared on CSN Philly.

Peters would go on to say that new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson seems to be a better fit for the team and that, presumably unlike Kelly, he understands veteran players.

Peters would go on to talk about the team's tempo, something that has been praised by players in San Francisco. When asked if having more time in between each play was beneficial for the veterans on the team, Peters answered, "If you run the 100 a hundred times in a row, back to back to back, don't you think your 50th time you're going to be a little slower? If you get a little bit of rest, you're going to be a little faster."

He stated that, despite a lot of early success, the NFL eventually caught on to what they were doing offensively.

Kelly's fast paced offensive tempo has taken 49ers players some time to adjust to, but for a team that has been heavily penalized for delay of games over the past couple of seasons, it has been a welcome change.

There hasn't been a lot of love left for Kelly from the Eagles, numerous former players, and the Philadelphia fanbase who feel he decimated the roster after gaining control of it last year. He was fired just prior to the end of the 2015 season. It is unlikely that he will have full roster control during his tenure in San Francisco. General manger Trent Baalke remains in control of that aspect of the team.

Prior to 2015, Kelly led the Eagles to back-to-back 10-6 seasons which included a playoff appearance.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Neither tight end George Kittle (knee) nor cornerback Jason Verrett (hamstring) practiced. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said this week that he hopes Kittle can practice on Friday, but even if he can't, that doesn't necessarily rule him out for Sunday's game. Defensive end Dee Ford also did not practice. The injury report notes that it was due to a neck injury. The pass rusher was a full participant on Wednesday. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) returned to practice, albeit in a blue no-contact jersey. He is in the concussion protocol. The 49ers will be without starter Richard Sherman for the next
