The scene played over and over at Eagles practice last Monday.

The play would end, and the Eagles’ offensive players would sprint back to the line of scrimmage and look toward the sideline.

They would see two assistants and wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah, who wasn’t practicing that day, waving their arms, gyrating and running through a series of signs.

The players never huddled and quickly got the next play off.

It’s a sight University of Delaware fans grew accustomed to under former coach K.C. Keeler. In his system, two of the people using hand signals are signaling a “dummy play” so the opponent wouldn’t be able to pick up the signs. All of it is done to maximize the speed and the amount of plays.

“It’s the best thing to keep a defense off guard as far as substitution, packaging up on offense,” wide receiver DeSean Jackson said. “We have a tempo package that’s coming at you so fast that it’s really hard to stop.

“As long as we can keep the defense off guard, that’s the biggest thing.”

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said the hand signals are just one way to communicate without huddling. Kelly, for example, used placards at the University of Oregon to signal the play. The placards would have different pictures in each quadrant, each picture signifying something about the play.

Those placards were not seen during practice last Monday.

Kelly said the Eagles might not necessarily use hand signals when the regular season starts Sept. 10. But whatever system he uses will emphasize speed.

“I think the game is about making quick decisions,” Kelly said. “It’s a game of 60 to 70 to 80 four-second plays. So once the ball is snapped, it happens at that tempo. We’re just trying to force them to ... reflect what the mission is, and the mission is to be prepared to play a four-second play. You need to have that kind of [he snaps his fingers, signifying speed] to get that done.”

The Eagles’ offensive players admit the new system takes some getting used to. The Eagles have had only a three-day veterans minicamp in April, a three-day rookie minicamp earlier this month and the first of four organized team activities last week.
