20/20 HINDSIGHT.

TWENTY-TWO days ago I wrote this:

HOPEFULLY WE'RE ALL IDIOTS.

NOW it has come to this.

I'm an Eagles fan, but I'm not excited. I'll root for them of course, but I'll have to hope that I'm wrong the whole time.  

Already people are scratching their heads over this. Walt at Walterfootball.com graded this hire at a C-. (http://walterfootball.com/freeagents2013recap.php ) Heath Evans has gone on record calling this one of the worst hires in pro football history.

HISTORY.

Evans ranks this hiring as worse than the Steve Spurrier hire ( http://on.nfl.com/KellyReax ). And the worst part is, I agree with him. 

CBS Sports is already shaking their collective head, squinting and setting their mouth up to say "I told you so", ( http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/21563687/chip-kelly-will-be-most-scrutinized-nfl-coach-weve-seen-in-long-time ) before the ink on Kelly's contract has even dried. And they even managed to get in a swipe at the fans. 

I hope I'm wrong. I swear I do. In fact I hope most of us are wrong.

I caught hell for writing this.

22 days later we have Pat Shurmur, Billy Davis and maybe another season with Michael Vick as your starter.

I wonder, how does everyone feel about the hire NOW?
