WTF? Hello 180!
@JasonLaCanfora: Can confirm ESPN report that Oregon's Chip Kelly has agreed to coach the Eagles. Wow. That's a stunner. Eagles get their guy in the end.
proves two points
- most media folks are not in the "in"
- money talks
maybe the Eagles phoned up C.Kelly and BEGGED him to reconsider.
I despise the Eagles, but this is a great move.
Kelly, if successful on offense, will have a lot of the league expanding when they go for it on fourth down, and probably more "10 second offenses" across the league. Which is good, more plays = more football.
Hell if they play the Pats this year that game will probably break the record for most plays in a game.
Someone needs to start a thread called "Will the Eagles run a gimmick offense?"
wondering if any heavy sanctions headed Oregon's way that Chip found out about.
wasn't it Nike money that was supposedly keeping him at Oregon?
Eagles offensive linemen are going to be doing a lot of running this offseason. You can't run that system with a bunch of fatties up front, they get too tired.
I would think the Eagles would have to keep Vick now.
Would place a call to the Eagles ASAP about getting Nick Foles from them, he won't run a chip Kelly system but looks like a decent QB option.
Plus, you can even pair him with his OC from last year in Mornhinweg or a guy familiar with the Philly offense in Pat Shurmur as OC options to limit a learning curve.
Yes...now Urban Meyer can steal all the Oregon fast recruit commits and add to our recruit class.We are in contention with them for their annual speed guys they get.
Good going, Chip Carroll.
Mark my words, Chip Kelly will be back coaching college ball in 2 years. Bad hire for the Eagles
Oregon could be facing possible NCAA sanctions for the school's use of recruiting services, but Kelly indicated in Arizona that he isn't running from anything.
"We've cooperated fully with them," he said. "If they want to talk to us again, we'll continue to cooperate fully. I feel confident in the situation."
