The biggest roster decision Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly will make this year is deciding who his quarterback will be. Though most people believe it will be a draft pick, there are others who think it will be Michael Vick or Nick Foles.
I’m going to throw another possibility into the mix…Joe Webb, the backup Minnesota Vikings QB.
Every time I hear that name I have to shake my head a little bit. You see, I was at the Linc back in 2010 when the Eagles played the Vikings on a Tuesday night in frigid temperatures after a snow storm forced the game to be rescheduled from Sunday.
A first round playoff bye was on the line in that game and we had an underwhelming Vikings team limping into the Linc and starting a rookie backup quarterback. It should have been an easy win to keep our hopes of a bye week in tact.

AROUND THE WEB
A new head coach means that change is afoot everywhere with the Philadelphia Eagles organization. There are huge questions surrounding the supporting cast that will surround Chip Kelly. It appears that the offensive coordinator piece is in place, with former Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur reportedly joining on with the Eagles.

Chip Kelly has yet to name a defensive coordinator.

As noted yesterday, Kelly and the Eagles appear to be hiring defensive...
We’re pretty sure it’s not a word, but it gets the message out loud and clear. New eagles coach Chip Kelly isn’t sure how he’ll piece together his offense yet, but he knows it’s going to be high octane.
However, on defense that will be someone else’s job, and if its any indication, he wants an aggressive coach who will dominate offenses.
Chip Kelly is quickly assembling members of his Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff. Former Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur is rumored to be tapped as the Eagles offensive coordinator, and now word surfaces of a possible defensive coordinator. Howard Eskin believes that the Eagles and Chip Kelly will hired current San Francisco 49ers defensive backs coach Ed Donatell.
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...
