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.

As noted yesterday, Kelly and the Eagles appear to be hiring defensive...

Chip Kelly describes what he is looking for in a defensive coordinator: 'Shutoutability'

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.

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.
