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.

Jason Peters: Under Chip Kelly 'we got rid of' any vets that spoke up

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 New York Giants have been a whirlwind of a franchise, last making the playoffs in 2016, and going 22-59 during that time span. In addition, they've churned through three head coaches in that time period with Bob McAdoo, Pat Shurmur, and Joe Judge, while keeping GM Dave Gettleman, who's struggled to identify top-tier talent in the draft, and has made questionable free agent decisions, which is why Judge was fired this offseason, and Gettleman "retired", just like Tom Coughlin a few years back. San Francisco 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters, whose identified talent consistently over the past few years in the draft, is a finalist for New York's GM opening, having completed a second interview yesterday afternoon.
