So Much For The Fans Being In An Uproar.

Posted July 19, 2013

Since Chip Kelly has taken over the Eagles al I have read on this sit is how incompetent he is, how he’s scared of his players, and how the fans are in an uproar over it. Then I hear on the radio this morning Don Smolenski and how the Eagles gave given away nearly 50, 000 tickets per open practices available to the public, and how there is rumors that some people are actually paying to get these tickets too! Smolenski also said the team averaged between 5 to 7 thousand fans at Lehigh University. It seems the fans can’t wait to see Chip Kelly and this team despite the apparent idea here on YB that fans are outraged by this team and at Chip Kelly.


I’m sure at some point the honeymoon between Chip Kelly and Eagles fans will eventually be over, but for now it seems that the fans are very much intrigued by Kelly and his new offense. One does have to wonder if this excitement is less about Kelly and more about the fact Andy Reid is gone though. For me it’s certainly a combination of both. So far 60% of the fan base believe Chip Kelly is handling things properly in Philly, and their expected large turnouts during PRACTICE (thank you Allen Iverson) makes it seem that number is even higher.
