Why haven’t the Philadelphia Eagles hired a new general manager?

What happened exactly in those hours when Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman locked horns in the Philadelphia Eagles front office we may never know for sure. My understanding is it was a fairly run of the mill power struggle, one that’s not uncommon around the NFL. Long story short, Kelly came out on top and was named the team’s new personnel head honcho. Roseman was “promoted...

Quarterbacks are no longer worth an early-draft gamble

For anyone (and we’re looking at you, Chip Kelly) considering a bold move to climb the draft board April 30 in order to land this year’s near-consensus top quarterback, Marcus Mariota, please consider that the odds of Mariota becoming a franchise quarterback are probably no better than 50/50. I elaborated on this in a recent article at Bleacher Report, but I want to expand beyond...

Philadelphia Eagles Free Agency Guide: Offensive Line

Preface The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line was possibly the best unit in the league in 2013, then got hit with the injury bug in 2014. While they still have quality players along the line, LT Jason Peters, LG Evan Mathis and RG Todd Herremans are all 32 or older. RT Lane Johnson (24 years old), the 4th overall pick in 2012, should hold down that spot for years to come and...

Will Chip Kelly move up for quarterback Marcus Mariota?

The Philadelphia Eagles have gone 10-6 in each of Chip Kelly’s two years as head coach. In 2013, Philadelphia won the NFC East but lost to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round. In 2014, Kelly could not overcome Nick Foles’ broken collarbone, falling a win shy of the postseason. After 2013, it appeared Kelly had his quarterback in Foles. The second-year quarterback was...

Chip Kelly Is Looking Into Moving Up To Draft His Old Oregon QB

Oregon’s record-setting, Heisman-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota is widely-regarded as the potential no. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, despite some criticism that he is a “system” quarterback who benefits from Oregon’s high-octane spread scheme that relies on quick, safe passes near the line of scrimmage. Even if that isn’t the case, what better place for...

NFC East: Offseason Areas of Need

With all four teams now in offseason mode, it is time to look at the areas in which they each need to improve through free agency and the NFL Draft in late April. While free agency can help fill positions of need, it is generally a better idea to draft because of the stark difference in cost between free agency and draft additions. While a team like the New York Giants had previously...

Philadelphia Eagles: Disappointing season yet again

A 10-6 season at first glance seems like a great record to make the playoffs, but it was not the case for Chip Kelly’s Philadelphia Eagles. In his second season as the head coach, Chip Kelly was unable to coach his talented team into the playoffs. With two costly losses late in the season to the rival Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins, the Eagles were left disappointed and...

Photo: Former Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly Is Attending Tonight’s National Championship Game

Chip Kelly left Oregon to take the head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles in January 2013, but he is Texas tonight to attend the Ducks’ national championship game against Ohio State, presumably rooting for his old school. Kelly isn’t wearing any Oregon gear, but he is still rocking Nike, based on this picture. Can you name this swooshed man? #CFBPlayoff
