:thumbup: Let the next chapter begin.

"I put the Eagles offense as one of my bottom five. Why did I do it? Not that they are one of the worst five units in the NFL. It's because, 'It's going to be one of the fastest units we've ever seen. What are you going to do to stop it? . . . It's going to be unbelievable.' How is that working out? Is it just the most unbelievable thing you've ever seen?"

I think I can safely say that they will never punt from their own 40, down by 3, with less than 2:00 to go. Especially not in a playoff game. :wall: For that reason alone, I'm optimistic.

Some kind of autonomous Defensive coordinator and Nick Foles for this year at least.

Here's Chip Kelly on his offense in the NFL: “There's a lot of ways to play football. Trends go one way and the other. … If you weren't in the room with Amos Alonzo Stagg and Knute Rockne when they invented this game, you stole it from somebody else. “Any coach is going to learn from other people and see how they can implement it in their system. Anything you do has to be personnel driven. You have to adapt to the personnel you have. There's a lot of great offenses out there, but does it fit with the personnel you have? The key is making sure what you're doing is giving your people a chance to be successful.”

@espn_macmahon: RT @LanLocker: Chip Kelly's offense averaged 601 yards and 50 points per game against Monte Kiffin's Tampa 2 defense. (2-1 record)

@AlbertBreer: Big thing on Chip Kelly -- NFL's pursuit of him isn't about offensive scheme, it's about his ability to innovate, adapt and build a program.

Getting to know Chip Kelly

@JasonLaCanfora: Eagles and Kelly could not get together last time due to issues of power. Will be interesting to see if Kelly has final say in personnel

It should be interesting. I am hoping he can get a proven DC on board. Lovie Smith would be great.

I'll just post it here too, from Ian Rapoport a few minutes ago:Names to watch for #Eagles DC: UGA's Todd Grantham, UF's Dan Quinn. Both schooled in stopping spread offenses, both with NFL experienceIf they took Grantham, could make Jarvis Jones an interesting pick at #4 if he's there.

Wonder if this means Vick has a chance of returning now as the QB to run Kelly's style of offense.

I want to admit that this thread is all about me me me, and I am being as narcissistic as I could possibly be.


It's timschochet, this is just what he does. He thinks his opinion is more important than others (though he would never admit this) so instead of continuing the conversation in the other thread he starts his own.


If you're misinformed on a subject, avoid posting. Please.

I think it's important to remember that Kelly doesn't believe he has to have a mobile QB to succeed. If you look at the impact his scheme had in New England, it's a perfect illustration of that point.In any event, it certainly raises the likelihood he could stay. I gave Vick a 0% chance of staying before the Kelly hire. Still below 50% though.

Fwiw, Ian rappaport was just on nfl network saying he expects lovie to take a year off and get his name back into the head coaching mix and that he doesn't have any interest in being a coordinator.

First thing Eagles have to fix is the Oline. I don't care who plays QB and who calls the plays, that has to be fixed!Either way, it's got to be exciting for Eagles' fans right now! Congrats guys. I might adopt the Eagles into my "top 5" favs just to watch the fun.If Chip Kelly can adjust to the NFL, you have to imagine he's salivating over the prospect of Maclin, Jackson, McCoy and Bryce Brown. Getting those guys into position to make plays is paramount. Kelly also knows how to run the ball, something that has been missing in Philly for a long time.

Agreed. Looks like Lovie is out of the equation, but that's not surprising. I wasn't as excited about Gus Bradley as most were, I think Kelly could be a great hire after reading some stuff about his influence at the NFL level.

O-Line is nearly a automatic fix next year when players are back from injuries. Question is it the type of O-Line Kelly needs for the offense. I have no clue.

Todd Grantham -- Eagles have already identified him as a possibility if we hired Bradley, so we have to keep him in mind

I'm sure there are a ton of capable defensive assistants out there, just not sure how plugged in Chip Kelly would be with those guys.

I'm OK with Chip but I do NOT want an entire college staff if possible.

I agree, but Grantham was an NFL coach.

1999-2001 (Colts DL coach)
2002-2004 (Texans DL coach)
2005-2007 (Browns DC)
2008-2009 (Cowboys DL coach)

And Grantham's defense has had success against spread offenses, correct?

@RapSheet: When did #Eagles know they got Chip Kelly? Around 10 a.m. How did they get it done? Two words from Eagles source: Howie Roseman.

@RapSheet: Heard the same. Kelly has never asked for that. RT @Jeff_McLane: To repeat what I was told weeks ago, Kelly didnt want full authority.

@RapSheet: What method did Howie Roseman use? Recruiting 101, per source. Push, push, pull away, give them time to think… push again. #Fundamentals

**Howie is the man now lol

Any ideas on what this scheme would mean for each of the skill players?

Well nobody knows how much of the scheme will be picked up but McCoy should be bumped up. I'm not sure how far he fell but his value should be higher with Chip and even Bryce Brown should have value b/c Chip has shown an ability to use 2 RBs.

Eagles 2013-14 Super Bowl odds went from 30/1 to 22/1 today. :excited: :)
Pittsburgh Tankers, what a proud franchise: "We got to the point, if we won one more game or two, Mario Lemeiux would've been in New Jersey. That's how close we were." The plan was hatched over a midseason lunch between him and E.J. "We didn't actually try to throw games. But, you know, we went in there with the understanding ... we weren't going to be upset if we lost." The old coach admits it all now. They tanked it.

Lovie isn't going to be our D coord after being turned down and having to work under a young college coach after being a hc for so many years. I am indifferent on the Kelly signing... woulda been happy with Gus or Chip. But I think the biggest thing is our D-Coordinator. Everyone on here was jacked about going back to dominant defenses and we still need that. The O-coord is obviously not that important, but we need a d-coord with nfl experience. If we get Horton I'd be doing backflips. That's what will make our team.

Potential defensive coordinator hires:

Rob Ryan -- NOT AT ALL my choice, but he's not yet official in STL and would probably love a chance to stick it to the Boys
Lovie Smith -- The dream choice, but I doubt he'll take a DC job but instead sit out a year and do media until next year's HC options
Ray Horton -- If he doesn't get Cardinals HC job (and it appears he won't), I would love to have his aggressive style in Philly
Todd Grantham -- Eagles have already identified him as a possibility if we hired Bradley, so we have to keep him in mind

An apparently he runs a 3-4 so I like him even more now :excited:

And he knows Jarvis Jones pretty well. So he COULD be in play at #4 if he's there.

I hope everyone learned from this coaching search not to trust a damn thing the media puts out there, since none of them know what's going on. Random sources and tweets aren't news.I'm very excited and optimistic about this hire. As for his system and the right players for it, it's my understanding both are fallacies. He won't plug and play his Oregon playbook to the Eagles and force the players to fit into it. That was Andy's style. I think Kelly will adjust to the player's strengths. My only concern now is who runs the defense? That decision can make or break this team.
