WHERE'S YOUR ENTHUSIASM?

Posted June 10, 2013

THE NICEST prediction I've heard about the eagles season is 7-9.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000209691/article/32-in-32-chip-kelly-philadelphia-eagles-can-contend

It was said by Heath Evans. The same Heath Evans that said the Chip Kelly may go down as the worst hire in NFL history. Of course that 7-9 is with his assumption of Michael Vick as our starter. (Months ago, I said the same thing. 6-10/7-9 behind Vick.) Truth is, I'm NOT AT ALL enthused about 2013.

Nobody really expects this team to have anything to play for by like, Week Five. When Heath Evans made his prediction he said he didn't know what to expect from a Kelly team, so he had to go on what happened in the past, (i.e. the Andy Reid era). I have to admit, I did the same.

Thing is, it's not the Reid era anymore. Reid actually knows what he's doing (despite some people trying to insist that his entire career here consisted only of his last season or two). On the other hand, Kelly has so far given every indication of being in over his head. It's actually rather reminiscent of when Ray Handley took over the Giants. 

Despite a number of personal attacks traded on here, what doesn't happen is people debating football. People want to discuss boycotts, Raider-hate, who praises what, etc. Just anything to avoid admitting that there is no quantifiable good thing happening on the Eagles team; or if there is a quantifiable good thing happening, nobody seems to know what it is or wants to discuss it. 

But if you change your mind.......
