As a head coach, Chip Kelly is an excellent offensive coordinator…

Kelly sees things possible on offense that are like a Kandinsky painting…what he sometimes fail to realize is there are other guys with paintbrushes on the other side of the canvas… It’s discouraging to realize that even if the 2014 Eagles go 11-5 it may not be good enough to make the playoffs. That is a travesty based upon a very weak year for the Giants, Redskins, Falcons...
