Philadelphia Eagles' Jason Kelce Acknowledges Slow Offensive Start

Despite a 2-0 record, Kelce and the Eagles acknowledge the need for improvement

Published on September 24, 2023

The Philadelphia Eagles have started the 2023 NFL season with a perfect 2-0 record, but the team and its veteran center, Jason Kelce, are not resting on their laurels. Despite high expectations for their offense this season, the Eagles have faced some early struggles. In a recent press conference, Kelce offered an honest assessment of the team's performance and the urgency for improvement.

Kelce's Candid Comments

During the press conference, Kelce emphasized the importance of the team's record but didn't shy away from acknowledging the less-than-ideal start. "Alright, I'll try to give this as accurate as I can. We're 2-0, which is good," Kelce said. "But we're 2-0 and we know we could very easily be 1-1, and we have not played football the way we wanted to play football yet. So the temperature of the team is a little bit on edge."

Kelce's honesty resonated with fans and analysts alike. While many teams might be content with a perfect record, the Eagles are driven by a desire to meet their own high standards and fan expectations.

"And I think everybody feels that we need to play better," Kelce continued. "If we want to live up to the expectations that we think we are capable of playing like, we need to make improvements and we need to perform better. I think that's the temperature that I feel, and honestly, I think that's a good temperature. That's where you want to be in this league."

The Silver Lining: Still 2-0

One silver lining amid the offensive struggles is the fact that the Eagles remain undefeated. In contrast, the Cincinnati Bengals have stumbled out of the gate with an 0-2 record, desperately needing a win. This highlights the mark of a good team: the ability to secure victories even when not playing their best football.

The Eagles have demonstrated that they can win despite facing challenges and growing pains. With the entire season ahead of them, there is ample time to refine their offense under a new offensive coordinator and gear up for a potential playoff run.

Looking Ahead

Jason Kelce and the Philadelphia Eagles are fully aware that improvements are needed if they are to make a return to the Super Bowl. While they have faced offensive struggles early in the season, their 2-0 start puts them in an advantageous position. The Eagles have the opportunity to fine-tune their game, acclimate to their new offensive coordinator's system, and be prepared for a deep playoff run.

As the season unfolds, the Eagles and their dedicated fanbase will be closely watching for signs of improvement and a resurgence of their high-powered offense. In the quest for Super Bowl glory, Kelce's leadership and the team's commitment to excellence will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in their journey.
