Chip Kelly Wants Winners And Not Whiners.

Posted July 16, 2013

Chip’s making it clear he wants to win now, so that means all of the old days just getting by and not being held accountable for your actions are over. Good or bad the slate is clean for these players. Now they can decide to do things they way they used to by taking plays off, being lackadaisical with the football, constant mental lapses, not having any pride in the uniform or for the team they play for; or they can step up, work hard, compete, fight, and ultimately win! Despite what some people believe YOU CAN’T WIN WITH A LOSING MENTALITY. The truth is Chip has to change the mentality and not IGNORE the losing mentality is there. Rather he must confront it, and force these men to once again believe they can win. Winning is hard work and it takes pride, determination, and dedication to ones craft.  This team as it is can’t win from all the losing. At the first sign of “here we go again”, these players are going to revert back to being the losers they have become lately. Just watch the Raiders this season and you will see a team that will fold like tissue paper at the first sign of adversity, because they would rather ignore the losing mentality that has befallen them.

 Is what Kelly has said, and any Eagles fan worth half his salt wouldn’t want it any other way. He/She wouldn’t want players dictating to coaches who should and shouldn’t be starters unless those players were the likes of Peyton Manning or something. There’s no Manning on this roster.  A true fan wouldn’t want anyone other than the coach handling who starts for his team and who doesn’t. Imagine being forces by management to start a player, because he makes too much money or some front office idiot makes a trade for the guy and forces you to play him! The Raiders fans know all about that, and most of the smarter ones seem very upset about it. Chip Kelly was brought here to win, and he can’t win with players that aren’t willing to work and change their losing mentality.

And this should be a notice to the players on this roster who have been here and haven’t been winning. Don’t think being the guy you used to be under Reid will get you by now. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that nearly every player the Eagles brought in this offseason came from winning teams. So unless you’re a guy who has been brought in (and understands how to win) or you’re a rookie then you better consider yourself on alert. You are the players Chip Kelly HASN’T CHOSEN and are the ones under most of his scrutiny. Anyone who from the start of training camp is found to be dogging it, we may not find them on this roster despite how great they think they are. Some of you have favorite players on this team. One of mine is Shady McCoy, but I know this. If Shady wants to be an Eagle this season and beyond then he better come into camp in shape, ready to work, and hungry to win. He may not be cut, but trades can happen in the NFL. All of the players who have been losing under Reid are on notice and any TRUE Eagles fan wouldn’t want it any other way.
