Jason Kelce played well in 2013, after missing most of the 2012 season due to an ACL tear. There was some question about whether an athletic offensive lineman like him would have any drop-off after coming off a serious knee injury.
Kelce had another strong season and is one of the most talented and athletic blockers in the entire league. Bob Ford wrote a good piece on him and got OL coach Jeff Stoutland to open up about his stud center.
“I get calls from other line coaches about Kelce, and they are like: ‘This guy is unbelievable in space,’ ” Stoutland said. “Many times, those big offensive lineman in space look like cows on ice. They can’t change direction or stop on a dime. Jason Kelce is totally the opposite of that. When he gets outside the blocking box – whether on a screen pass or a sweep or a play to the perimeter – he always takes the right angle at the right target.”
Cows on ice? That’s just beautiful.
