Sound & Fury: The Practice Playlist

You've read all about it. You've seen the tweets. Heck, if you live close enough in South Philadelphia, you might have even heard it with your own ears. We're talking, of course, about the blaring music at Eagles practice under head coach Chip Kelly.

Throughout practice, save for the occasional "teach" session, the players and coaches conduct business with loud music in the background. Kelly's use of music during practice dates back to his time in New Hampshire and he says, "There's a lot of science behind it."

For their part, the players welcome the intentional distraction.

"I like it," said quarterback Nick Foles. "I like the music. There's always a purpose and it really helps with communication. You really have to stress communication because it is loud and with cadence and everything, you have to be loud and make sure everybody's on the same page. I think they do a good job with it. It's quite a selection so I'm sure it's good for you all (the media) to listen to during practice as well."

"It's fun," said quarterback Mike Vick. "It's different. It gets you going. The thing is it's challenging because you have to stay involved mentally. I think it's going to help us when we're going on the road."

So what kind of music emanated from the speakers during Monday's open OTA? Luckily, with a hat tip to Shazam, kept close tabs on the full, eclectic playlist. If you're looking for tendencies under coach Kelly, the playlist suggests that there really isn't much predictability. Except, maybe, some Nicki Minaj (including, gasp, one repeat).
