The Philadelphia Eagles made Chip Kelly one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL, giving him a five-year contract worth $32.5 million, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

I am too. Way too much money for a coach who has NO NFL experience...

And he's looking at hiring Jim Herman for his dc?

Yep. Just another cheat getting the hell out do Dodge City before Wyatt Erp comes to town. He gets to cash in on his millions while the program he leaves behind gets to suffer for his wrongdoings. Something needs to change in this equation...

 

GO BLUE!!!

Depends on who he's able to get at QB and who he hires as the DC. That roster is loaded with talent that by and large fit what he wants to do. McCoy and Bryce Brown are two of the fastest backs in football, DeSean Jackson and Macklin are two of the fastest WRs, Brent Celek at TE, they already have a lean OL.
 
Very interested to see how this all works out. Could open the floodgates for college guys. Multiple teams reached out to Kevin Sumlin at Texas A&M according to reports so we're already on the edge.

Depends on...

Of course it depends on a lot of factors, but that's not fun, so put away your slide rule and protractor and pick over or under.

Over. Only because of the ownership in Philly is better than Cleveland or Washington (Butch Davis & Ball Coach). Chip is more than capable.

He won't get fired but may go back to college on his own. I'll take the over though.

As MichFan said, their roster is littered with talent that either gave up last year or got hurt. If they can upgrade their OL and solve their mental mistakes they will be preseason favorite to win the NFC East.
 
Go Blue!!

You guys are probably right.  I am just hoping for a Spurrier-like crash-and-burn NFL experience for Chipper.

I could see him pulling a Saban and go running back to college after a couple of years. He's not known for dealing real well with the media and Philly's media is one of the worst to deal with. If he stumbles early, he's not going to like how he'll be treated by the Philly media...

 

GO BLUE!!!

Good point Matty, I forgot how bad the media AND the fans are up there....The fanbase is one of the worst in the NFL imo.

2 years.  And forget about "potential".  I don't care who they have, without a QB you don't win in the NFL and I'm not sure how their QB situation gets better in 2 years.  15th in total offense, 15th in total defense (both worse than the Lions.  Think about it) and a ton of penalties.  Throw in the fact that he has to play Washington, NYG, and Dallas 6 times a year and yeah, good luck.  That's assuming the fans of Philly don't leave a pipe bomb in his mailbox when he starts out 1-4 next year.

Let's hold off on the coronation for Chipper. They're playing a crappy defense & an offense that's doing nothing to help out that crappy defense. How about we assess his system after say, week 8?
