If we had kept Bo another year...

PHILADELPHIA -- The Chip Kelly revolution ended before it ever really began.

The Philadelphia Eagles abruptly fired Kelly on Tuesday night, five days before the final game of the 2015 regular season. Kelly's Eagles were eliminated from playoff contention when they lost to the Washington Redskins on Saturday night.

That loss dropped the Eagles to 6-9. They were 2-5 over their past seven games, including losses in which they surrendered 45 points twice and 40 points once. Kelly's record in nearly three seasons as Eagles head coach was 26-21.

Kelly told Fox Sports on Tuesday night that he didn't fight owner Jeffrey Lurie's decision to fire him. He also told Fox Sports that he wants to stay in the NFL rather than return to college coaching.

 

EDITOR'S PICKS

 

"We appreciate all the contributions that Chip Kelly made and wish him every success going forward," Lurie said in a statement released by the team.

Sources told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that Lurie had been thinking for weeks about making changes in the team's structure, including stripping Kelly of personnel control.

That suggestion was made to Kelly when he met with Lurie recently, sources said, and Kelly balked at the idea.

Sources said Lurie made the decision to part ways with Kelly on Tuesday morning. That will allow the Eagles to get a jump on some of the hot assistant coaches who will be available, including Sean McDermott, the Carolina Panthers' defensive coordinator who once held the same title with the Eagles.

"This has been very painful to watch over the last three weeks. And changes needed to be made," a senior Eagles executive told Paolantonio.

A news conference is scheduled for noon ET Wednesday. Pat Shurmur, the Eagles' offensive coordinator and the former head coach of the Cleveland Browns, will serve as interim head coach for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

Lurie said in a letter to fans that team president Don Smolenski and Howie Roseman, the executive vice president of football operations, will assist him in the search for a new coach.

"I spent the last three seasons evaluating the many factors involved in our performance as a team," Lurie said in the letter. "As I watched this season unfold, I determined that it was time to make a change."

The abrupt move caught some Eagles players off guard.

"It was unexpected," wide receiver Jordan Matthews told ESPN's Josina Anderson. "I had no idea it was coming. I found out like everybody else."

However, two Eagles players, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team was not publicly discussing the firing, told The Associated Press that several players had met in groups in recent weeks to discuss their frustration with Kelly. They said they expressed relief in text exchanges with teammates after the team announced it had fired Kelly, after most players had left the practice facility for the day.

Well, if coaches from Oregon are the only ones you can hire, he's a world better than the one we got... but he's shown he refuses to change his tactics to suit the talent as well.  Too many of these guys now can only coach their system and are such arrogant pricks that they think their system is the only way to win.  Unless you look at the type of players that you can reliably find and build around that, they're going to continue to fail.

This dude is a dick. The culture change seen would have been one of a deteriorated state from Bo's days.

Yes, a deterioration.

A rancid dick.

not going to lie and say I like Chip, he's a douche bag as well, but he'd be our douche bag with a record of winning.

 

with scholarships in short supply we can't miss hardly ever with recruits, if we went back to power running, we need in reality 3 skill players, with these new fangled west coast offenses we need 6 or 7 skill players and that leaves us very little room to miss with o-line scholarships.

 

and what are the odds we really have 6 or 7 4 stars and a first round QB at Nebraska any time soon to make Riley's system fail proof?

Slim and none.

 

And Slim is on a bus heading out of Lincoln.

but I think we can all agree, that we will need a first round QB in Riley's system to win  a MNC.

Those what ifs will drive you crazy.

 

Watch and see if your current coach can learn and improve.

 

At the very least you should count your blessings that there were never any idiots at your place that seriously considered hiring Mack Brown.

 

:-)

 

 

 

Wish you were here.


you're only young once but you can be immature forevar.
