Like It Or Not Chip Kelly Is The Coach.

Posted January 19, 2013
Honestly I am not the biggest fan of the hiring. I was hoping the Eagles wouldn't tap into a guy with so many question marks especially if it means the return of Mike Vick. I was glad to see them move on when he turned them down. Regardless of that Chip Kelly is now the head coach of our Philadelphia Eagles. He will remain so until he teeters out like Andy Reid did or he retires after wining a bunch of Lombardi's. In either case I'm happy. Debating if the Eagles did or didn't make the right choice is now nothing more than an exercise in futility. He's here now and like it or not we have to deal with it. Regardless many football people love the guy as a coach. Tony Dungy raves about the guy. He tried to keep him at Oregon to keep coaching his son. Bill Belichick tapped his mind for advice on running his offense. Nobody is questioning his ingenuity. The fact of the matter is the Eagles targeted their guy and they got him. For years now people have been crying about how there wasn't a coach available to fill Andy's shoes. Well the Eagles didn't seem to have any trouble moving on from the greatest coach never to win a Super Bowl (in the minds of some) to Chip Kelly. The Eagles snatched Reid out of obscurity. Anyone who tells you the were in love with the idea of hiring Reid is a liar, because nobody knew who he was. It was a bold move that worked out. Here's hoping Kelly does as well, because like it or not he is the guy. The reality is there is a laundry list of coordinators and coaches from the NFL who failed. ASSuming Chip Kelly will at this point is nothing more than folly. Eagles fans you have a choice. You can get onboard with Chip Kelly (it no longer matters, because he is here) or you can keep crying about a change that won't happen. Then again you can always go join Andy Reid and go root for the Chiefs. Some of us already have dubious allegiances and loyalties when it comes to rooting anyway so it shouldn't be a problem for those people to hop off and jump to the next team like all of those McNabb people did. Don't worry we won't miss you.
