Found January 23, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
Chip Kelly has yet to name a defensive coordinator.  Even though he’s only been the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for less than a week, the “slowness” at which the DC search is going is starting to make me wonder if Kelly is eying someone on either the Ravens’ or 49ers’ defensive coaching staff. As noted yesterday, Kelly and the Eagles appear to be hiring defensive position coaches before naming a coordinator.  And by the way, the people mentioned in those reports were seen wearing Eagles shirts at the Senior Bowl yesterday, as confirmed by several members of the Philly media.

Comparing Andy Reid and Charlie Manuel

Would Charlie be fired midseason? I’m not saying that it is likely, or even that it isn’t likely, but we have to prepare ourselves for a situation in which Charlie Manuel gets fired the same way we had to with Andy Reid. The man has brought us a run of NL East championships and a World Series since he was hired to be the manager of the Phillies in 2005. He might be the best...
