But on Thursday, Kelly noted that the Eagles have converted 43-of-45 field goals from 15 yards out over the past two seasons. He shot down the idea that moving the PAT back will inspire him to go for two more often.
“I don’t think anything’s new,” Kelly said. “They didn’t entice you to go for two more, at least in my opinion.”
Of course, Kelly would never tip his hand. It’s highly unlikely that the Eagles will carry four quarterbacks on their active roster, and you have to figure Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez are locks to make the team. Matt Barkley is on the bubble, but he should have an advantage over Tebow in that he has more experience in Kelly’s system.
