Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is one of the most innovative minds in the NFL today.

He doesn’t get involved in what his predecessors practiced or what other coaches in the league are doing. His uptempo offense gives opposing defensive coordinators fits, and his new-school approach to coaching has made the Eagles into a force to be reckoned with in the NFC East yet again.

And his playsheet, which features a tribute to Barney Fife—a character from the “The Andy Griffith Show—is the best.

Smart Football editor Chris Brown made a great connection and pointed out that Barney stands for “boundary”—the short side of the field. And Fife relates to “foundation”—the wide side.
