Chip's gonna wish he didn't leave Oregon.
Chip is trying to build what he had at Oregon in the nfl. Part of that is having a shitty defense so this shouldn't be unexpected
Doesn't look good.
That said, it will really be the offense the makes or breaks things in Philly.
Haha! Wheres that douchebag Bama fan with the Dawkins sig? Can't remember his name.
Awful awful hire...sigh. Should have just hired Kotite again
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Expected a better meltdown from Eagles fans.
Oregon's offensive line coach must not have been available to fill the DC role.
Chip kelly: "if we can score 100pts, we don't need a defense."
There you are! I am loving the Eagles struggles.
Meh NFL franchises can't win year after year. They will be back again... maybe just not right now. Lolz @ you insulting a NFL team that I follow because that's they only thing you can resort too. It's the only obvious choice since you realize Georgia isn't sh!t compared to Bama.
Nah brother. I am laughing at the Eagles problems cause I am a Redskins fan, and they're a rival.
Well I guess we can both agree that we hate the Cowboys.
Yes we can. Fvck the Cowboys! What a joke they're.
So I take it no Eagle fans are happy? I don't blame you guys, I honestly don't know how even the biggest homer could be happy about this hire.. I mean, this dude has a dreadful résumé.. The hire doesn't make sense to me. Not a good move for Chips new job.
One problem in finding someone for this job is Chip brought his defensive staff instead of letting the DC have his own staff. Oregon always had average at best D's in college, so he hires all his position coaches and expects a good, solid and established DC to come and not being to hire his own guys? Crazy.
What do you Eagle fans truly feel about Chip Kelly and how do you guys think he'll do?
I think one big reason for this hire was that Davis has had experience switching to a 3-4 from a 4-3 which Chip wants to do. For me honestly, I never liked the idea of hiring Chip. The coach that I thought would have been the best fit is Lovie Smith and he doesn't even have a job now. Only time will tell how this works out and it's either a boom or bust. At least there's a little excitement this off season to see what kind of offensive production we get next year, but only time will tell. No point in sulking about the hires before we even play one game.
Exactly. I wouldn't be surprised if Chip brings in a new DC next year.
That doesn't make any sense? Why would he hire someone just to fire them after the season?
The Saints are also switching to a 3-4 and are looking at Crennel, Rob Ryan and Grantham so it's not like he doesn't have time or coaches available.
Why the hell did kelly hire defensive asst before the coordinator? That worked out real well when reid hired washburn before hiring castillo
Also Reid wanted Marvin Lewis and had to settle for Jim Johnson. That worked out damn well.
RIP JJ. Team hasnt been the same since
Like Mike Mularkey?
JJ was awesome. Reid's teams going in the crapper after he passed away is no coincidence. The only thing about Kelly that scares me is that he seems to have the same mindset... offense is king. It already looks like he is neglecting the defense with such a terrible hire.
Well he was a HC and the Jags got a new GM that wanted his own guy and fired him.. Completely different than Chip hiring his first DC.. Davis isn't getting fired after one season.
