So I was checking out the Philly.com site to see if there was any new information on possible coordinator and coaching candidates for the Eagles when I came across their poll of stay or go, and Mike Vick with over 9,500 submissions was nearly 85% for go! Nick Foles had less votes (a little over 8,100) but nearly 90% of the fan base wants him to stay. If Mike Vick is Chip Kelly's guy, then he will be sending out an extremely unpopular player. Despite Vick; the fans really have love for the Eagles skilled position players as  nearly all of them all of them were given a stay. I guess the fans forgot about the 16 points per game the offense was putting up. Either that or they mostly blame Vick for all of the problems. My guess is a combination of the two. 

Another very disliked player was Danny Watkins. 80% of the fan base that polled wanted the guy gone. When you are a first round pick and a healthy scratch how can anyone blame the fans for wanting this guy gone. Besides Desean Jackson many of the injured players polled very well as for fans wanting them to stay. Jason Peter and Kelce were well over 90%, while well over 90% wanted Dunlap and Bell gone.

The fans were very fond of the idea of Keeping Trent Cole despite his sub par season. The fans wish to see all 4 secondary starters gone by huge margins. Jeff Lurie himself now only garners a 50/50 split. Howie Roseman is the most unlikeable by the fans as over 80% want to see him gone. Don Smolenski just got the job and the fans are already fed up with him too. There seems to be a lot of unlikeable players on the current Eagles roster, and fans are extremely unhappy with the front office. I'm sure the raising of ticket prices will only further the fans growing dissatisfaction with Jeff Lurie, and if they are forced to watch another season of Mike Vick there could be an all out mutiny.
