Found January 16, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
Before we get into thoughts and opinions about the Philadelphia Eagles’ shocking announcement that Chip Kelly is now the head coach, I need to get one very important thing cleared up… What made him change his mind? This is important because his mind-changing calls into question whether or not he’s a guy we can count on.  My initial reaction to this shocking news was “WTF?!?”  And that’s mainly because I was perplexed that the man changed his mind on a big decision like that. Andy Reid changed his mind quite a bit while he was coach, but one thing we never had to worry about was his commitment to his organization. In order to get off on the right foot in Philadelphia, Kelly will need to explain this at his introductory press conference so Eagles fans can know exactly why he did an about-face on his decision to come to Philly. I mean, seriously, it’s a matter of being a man of integrity and a man of your word.  He just told Oregon he was returning only to turn around and say “sike!”
