Just broke, story still developing.

I thought he said he was staying with Oregon. Strange turn.

Apparently this guy has trouble making up his mind. I don't think he'll be a good pro coach. His offense is made for college.

I have questions about his offense as well, but I do think a person should be able to change their mind as situations change. It's too bad for Oregon, but if the Eagles came back and blew his mind, why shouldn't he be able to make a different decision?

 

The media is going to give him the Nick Saban treatment, and I don't think that's fair.

Kelly will get Vick destroyed if he runs the exact same style of offense he did at Oregon.

Oh, I don't care that he changed his mind I guess, but I'm not sure I would want to start off with my head coach being wishy washy. A couple weeks ago he told the Eagles he wanted to coach Cleveland, then he told Cleveland no thanks, then he went back to the Eagles and said he was staying at Oregon, and now he calls the Eagles up and tells them he changed his mind. This is all what they said on NFL network so Im not making this up. Just repeating what they said.

Boom or bust hire. He's gotta get something out of Vick.

 

I don't see this going well.

If that's what happened, then I get it. That's very wishy-washy.

 

I was assuming that the Eagles disjointed head coaching search left them desperate, so they went back to their favorite option and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. And, by the way, that's what I believe happened with Saban and Miami a few years ago. I don't feel sorry for Kelly, and definitely not for Saban. Just saying that, if that's what happened, he should be able to make the decision he feels best about, even if he changes his mind.

What's the old adage?  "Money talks, but it don't sing and dance, and it don't walk?" :funny:   My guess is that...like the Pistol and it's brother the Read offense, Chip Kelly's version will also work for awhile.  Defensive coordinators will figure this thing out quickly, or the QBs as you say will be destroyed.  RG3 is already down.....(Not necessarily a product of the offense....but 2nd knee problem and a concussion)

 

Any DC should make sure that his defense is in "Contain mode." and the 'veer offense' (What each is a variation thereof) can be shut-down or vastly limited and the QB more than likely will be on the sideline....not in the endzone.  Kelly fans, Skins fans, and SF fans may argue with me, but I know how to play against these offenses....give me someone willing to 'stay home' and HIT!  :)

 

I guess Billick stays in the booth.  I thought he was a good no-nonsense guy that would clean up the Philly circus.....Kelly adds to it IMO.  College < NFL.

I think you got it...     $$$$  The guy is just about as hot as he could possibly get.   He worked them.

 

Strike while the iron is hot...

what did Nick Saban did?

 

When he was still with the Dolphins, he spoke with Alabama about their head coaching job, but turned them down. He then told several people that he was staying with the Dolphins, denying that he was still considering the Alabama job. Days later, he accepted the Alabama job.

 

I always thought Alabama kept in touch with him, and finally came back and made him a better offer. There were also issues with his wife and family that affected his decision, according to the Dolphins owner. But he was branded a liar by the media, especially in Miami. I didn't think it was fair, because I think people should be allowed to change their minds.

Looks like he pulled the old Pete Carroll tactic. Skip town before the sanctions come down.

I probably would have, as well. But I don't think Kelly is going to bring a circus to town. I just don't think his offense is going to translate to the NFL.

I wanted to see what Billick could do with some 'time off.'    Reading what Superman said above what I am writing, Kelly may not bring the circus to town....it is to me a mini-me of New York....Vick, DeSean Jackson.....some of said circus is already IN town!!  He needs to be ready for it as well as the fans (short for fanatic :)).....Philly is not the place for someone used to nice laid back Oregon....just my opinion.  :)

Eagles what they need is a defensive minded coach.

 

With Redskins & Giants you will not win in a shootout because those teams have decent defenses.

 

Eagles have lots of talent, just not the right coach to get the job done.

God, I shake my head when NFL owners & GMs hire college coaches not as coordinators, but head coaches. Other than Jim Harbaugh from Stanford to the 49ers, recent transition stories from college to the NFL are not exactly a shining beacon of success. Steve Spurrier, Bobby Petrino, Nick Saban...I can keep going. Chip Kelly is a horrible NFL hire IMO.

While no one obviously has a crystal ball, I think Kelly may do alright if he gets himself a good staff, including a veteran OC. Kelly's background is a little more diversified than what you see up here in Oregon. He has a similar background to Bill O'Brien (former patriots OC) and I feel he's capable of running different styles of offenses - just a question of getting a feel for what NFL defenses do well.

The fact of the matter is that most evolution of the pro game comes from the college ranks. Just ask Bill Belichik. So while the phrase "that only works in college" may apply for a while, if the college game swings heavily that direction, then those are the types of players that are going to come out and if you want to hit the ground running, you do what your players are comfortable with. Its a slow shift to be sure and there's always resistance from the "old school", but if a concept is sound then its only a matter of time before it catches on. Spread offense concepts are being used all over now. Even the basic shotgun formation has its roots in college.

It depends....You have Coughlin who coughs up a great start to an even or losing record to end the season. Dan Synder and his fantasy football team under a washed up coach, then last but not least Jerrah who makes sure the Cowboys never ever win another Super Bowl. Kelly made do alright if he follows the pattern and sees where his competition likes to make mistakes.

    • I have to be honest, when inlooked at the list of name , at each position, that he kept on his roster, i really feel better about this team. i'm not making light of our injuries at all. But seriously:   Qb: if #12 goes down, does it matter? I worry about Our depth here rb: whether 4 or 5, interesting. If OL gives anything, this is a nice group OL: when you see the list, looks very promising (ignoring injuries of course).  te:above average wr: very interesting and promising group dl: very exciting possibilities lb: question mark in my eyes safety: if healthy, i like group cb: if healthy, this group could be special, imo. k/p:. We're good.    Is it just me, or does this look like a promising and exciting mix, overall.  Of course, i'm ignoring injuries, but still.
    • I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.
    • I've always felt it should be cut to two games. The starters can play a majority of game one like they do game 3, then the second game for mostly backups like game 4 is.    At the very least it should be cut down to 3 games. Theres no reason to have 4 or 5 imo. Its risking more injuries, plus the common fan doesn't give a damn about 4 or 5 preseason games. 
    • Hi, Colts fans!    Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.   Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.   Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.   Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.   Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!
    • Interesting. i kind of like the options and depth that gives us at BOTH rb and wr. is Bray elible for ps?  And does anyone here think Bray is noticeably better or higher upside than Rogers or Smith? i've liked the burst from Rogers, the twitchyness.  He kinda reminds me of Tereance Wilkens for some reason.  To me (small sample), Smith has looked smoother and more polished while Rogers looks like he can take it to house at any minute. Perhaps its was just the impact of that 1 big play he had. does anyone think we would look back and regret cutting Bray?  With new kickoffs, punt returners may be better on kick returns actually.
