It was announced earlier today that the Philadelphia Eagles have hired Chip Kelly to be there next head coach. I guess owner Jeffrey Loria finally came to this conclusion - that Kelly would be his best choice - after interviewing almost every available recently fired coach or assistant in the NFL over the last two weeks.So is this a good hire or bad hire?Completely awful. "Hey, can I bring some of this Nike money with me?" Chip Kelly made his mark on the college football game at Oregon with a hurry-up offense that resembles a two minute offense every time it gets the ball. Hey, I love watching the Ducks as much as the next college football fan. But can that style of offense carry over to the NFL? Probably not. The hurry-up at Oregon was so fast it was dizzying. But hey, it's easy to run when you don't have a salary cap and can recruit specific players to run your specific offensive schemes. It also helps that they're all 18-22 years old and in peak physical condition. As for the NFL, I can't wait till I get to see a 34-year old offensive lineman lumber down the field and get in his stance every 20 seconds. Should be entertaining. Hey LeSean McCoy, we're going to need you to get out of bounds on every run, OK?And then there is the current roster. The one bonus is that DeSean Jackson has been so under-utilized, it's criminal. I bet he and McCoy can't wait. Of course, the 800-pound gorilla in the room is Michael Vick. Vick has been regressing, when he isn't injured. The first thing Kelly and Loria need to look into is a replacement for Vick. I doubt that will happen, though. Loria loves him some Vick as much as Jerry Jones loves him some Romo.And for all those who say "Dude, the NFL is changing. Chip Kelly is gonna be awesome! Go Eagles!" I bet Stanford and their traditional run-first, play great defense football team might have something to say about that. Nick Saban and Steve Spurrier say see you in three years.
