    man, these tools have no loyalty.. WHy come out public ur going back to ur school and act like its such a great job and then bounce? Chip Kelly's gonna get ruined as many other great college coaches did.. If Steve Spurrier wasen't successful, and Nick Saban and Bobby Petrino, and Greg Schiano, i'm not gonna worry about this guy..

    Obviously, i like em, but this is how i feel now that hes with Philly..lol

    That's incredibly speculative. No question BB is a legend, but I'm not so sure about that statement.

    Successful franchises will at least give new methods of playing and thinking a look, see what works and what doesn't, and try to incorporate what does work into the system. That's what the Patriots do. If we had Belicheck instead of the pats (let's say we flubbed in 2000 instead of making a playoff run, Fassel's gone, and we bring in BB to replace him), this roster would be so much better. Eli would be in the conversation for "best QB to ever play", while Brady would be a "very good, but not quite top tier".
    I'm glad you brought up the Pats because I was going to bring them up when I read the "stuck in the past part".

    Despite some things I don't like about Gilbride, which goes for everyone since no one is perfect, what happens whenever we face the Pats in the reg. season or SB? I don't think this "stuck in the past" ideology fails against the super innovative and "current" Pats' style. We own them every darn time we face them despite how creative and new school they are.

    The only thing I will commend them on is the fact that they are constantly rebuilding through the draft and bringing in young and eager guys that want to win. I think we have a lot of veterans who aren't as hungry, but whenever our team plays their best and actually plays like they're hungry, we own the Pats and just about anyone else.

    It also helps that they got Tom Brady, one of the greatest to ever play this sport. Would BB have those 3 rings if Bledsoe never got injured? Who knows, but I think he's one of the most grateful people on the planet to have Brady. If Brady went to the friggin Jags they would have a playoff contending team next year no doubt about it. BB is a good coach, I won't take anything away from him, but I think Brady is more deserving of their success. Unlike most teams in the NFL, the Pats could get by without a good defense because that's just how good Brady is. You could give Brady a bunch of scrub WR's and he'll make them pro-bowlers.

    So what does it boil down to, is our coaching staff that awful in your eyes that we don't have any confidence facing anyone, or are you guys just saying Philly is a better team overall?

    Eagles have some good pieces to work with its not like he is walking into a complete train wreck. They have to get a QB though and thats a huge deal. Thank god they didnt end up with Russel Wilson thats who they wanted but the hawks took him before they picked in the 3rd round

    i think thats the best way myself take away the options and smash the QB over and over until he cant walk

    You're right that Chip is not a defensive guy, but that just means he will need the right defensive coordinator to be successful. Look at how much Gus Bradley has done for Pete Carroll.
    I'd say he lucked out with a QB as good as Wilson for sure. They would have 100% gone with Flynn but Wilson turned out to be so good that they benched their expensive veteran FA future QB investment for him.

    Personally I think this mass hysteria is pathetic.

    If people think that all the eagles are going to do is run option reads, they are kidding themselves. Chip Kelly is a good coach because, like any good coach, he puts his players in the best possible scenario to succeed. While at New Hampshire, he chucked the ball fifty times a game. At Oregon, he ran it fifty times a game.

    I'm more interested in seeing his defenses. I wonder what coordinators he will bring with him. It's not like we ever heard of Oregon coordinators even interviewing for other NCAA jobs. His defenses in Oregon never really played base 4-3 or 3-4, and he would usually have five - six defensive backs on the field at a time.

    I think this is one of the worst possible situations for a new coach to walk into, especially when they have absolutely NO NFL experience. Although the Eagles were 4-12 last year, they still have the pieces to win the NFC East. Just because Kelly is a first year guy does not mean he wont be expected to win starting next year. If he struggles for two years, he will lose his job.

    You're mistaking guys who became productive with guys who were top talents coming in.

    James was the 12th ranked HB coming into college ball. And running a 4.4 isnt anything special either.

    DeAnthony Thomas was one of like 4 5 star recruits that Chip had while at Oregon.

    And option QBs can and often are very high recruits.
