NO CHIP ON MY SHOULDER.

Posted January 07, 2013

CHIP Kelly is staying put and so our search for a coach continues. Personally I'm thrilled.

They were paying this guy waaaaaay too much attention for my comfort. To anyone with eyes, he looked like a bad fit not only for us, but the NFL in general. With him off the board I think it limits the likelihood that the Eagles will make a big mistake now. At the moment lot of fanfare is accompanying the Chip Kelly name, and that fanfare and that name was causing a great deal of bias that had people trying very hard to look past some glaring flaws in Kelly as a candidate. The other candidates don't have that kind of heat and so I think they'll get a more honest scrutinizing before the trigger is pulled.

Brings up an interesting question, (and I don't follow college sports very closely, so I don't really care one way or the other). With Kelly's drawn out courting of the Bucs last year, which ultimately was a negotiating ploy; and Kelly repeating that same ploy this year by reportedly being close to signing with TWO NFL teams; what is the likelihood that he gets another serious look any time soon? If you're an NFL owner looking to fill your vacancy to prep for a pivotal draft that follows a year so bad you fired your HC, do you spend the time on a guy with his track record or just move on to someone you KNOW actually wants the job?

(FYI: I'd go with the hungry guy.)
