Lane Kiffin On Matt Barkley Going To Eagles

Lane Kiffin was asked about Matt Barkley today and did not address why Barkley slid to the fourth round. Instead he spoke about Barkley going to play for ex-Oregon coach Chip Kelly.

“It’s a great organization for Matt. I think it probably shocked a lot of people in what the assumptions were what Chip was looking for in a quarterback. (But) Chip talked to me about Matt early on.”

    Kiffin knows everyone feels strongly he was responsible for Barkley’s slippage. Barkley’s one chance is Kelly, knowing a running QB can get hurt instantly in the NFL, isn’t intent on operating the exact Oregon offense.
