The shot heard around the world is the news that Chip Kelly does a 180 degree turn faster than Knight Rider, and decides to leave Oregon after all to become the next Head Coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Like I previously stated in my earlier article, this is a huge risk, but could be a tremendous reward. The stories keep on pouring in on how there was a mystery candidate in the coaching search for the last few days, and out today comes the name Chip Kelly. Buzz has been generated on monumentous levels throughout the city of brotherly love, a city dying for a change.
Many intriguing things continue to mount up, including Howie Roseman, who has been getting blasted for inexperience, being the man behind the scenes that got the deal completed. As first reported by 975 the fanatic, Chip Kelly told his players last night he was leaving Oregon to take his fast paced, offensive system to the NFL after weeks of continued communication with Howie. Maybe Howie wasn’t the problem after all, but the mastermind to work through the process of getting their number one guy. There is a scheduled press conference tomorrow @1:30 to announce the decision. Up until then there will be plenty of questions asked amongst fans and reporters. Whatever the questions may be, the Eagles shocked us all and got the guy they wanted. Therefore, they have proved to us again that no more matter how much negativity surrounds them, they continue to put forth the best effort to make this team a winner!!…More to follow tomorrow……….
