I have no reason to believe that the Eagles would take a college coach if and when Reid gets fired, but my hunch says both Reid and Norv Turner from SD will both be fired and those jobs could open a spot for Kelly if he decides to jump in the pro waters.
Personally, I think it would be a dumb move for PHI or SD but I'm also not not an expert on the matter, just a good ole Monday morning hunch.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
As an eagles fan I must say I hope you're wrong. Philly needs a proven NFL coach, in a dream scenario for me, the duo of Gruden and Kiffin would get back together. Hell bring Norv along as OC, not gonna happen but a guy can hope. RTR!
I dont see any way that Kelly would be a successful NFL coach. PERIOD. His offense works very well in the college environment but it is easily stifled by decent sized, athletic DLines. No way you could let a QB take that abuse in the NFL game-in game-out
You are assuming that he plans to always use the spread option as an offense. I dont think he would ever use this in the NFL. Its his no huddle up tempo style that he uses that would be successful. Some people think that every coach that uses those offenses couldnt apapt to their personnel with pro style tendancies. A good football coach is a good football coach. I think CK is a good football coach, but even though I was shocked to learn that TB almost had him last year, I still gotta assume that another team would come calling. Not sure why considering his lack of an NFL background, but it almost happened once and we're led to assume it could happen again.
I would love to see that happen in Philly. Of course, I hate the eagles, and think gruden is overrated, and. Kiffin is over the hill.
I am not so sure they are gonna fire Andy Reid after the season. He has 1 year left on his contract, and I think the owner will let him come back. I'll believe he will be fired when I see it. And the only coach they have been talking about coming here on the radio all week is guess who... Nick Saban.
I too doubt the ability of his system to succeed in the NFL, but he is the top name in CFB for an NFL job.
Chris Mortensen called this several weeks ago when he reported Andy Reid would not return next year. He said Chip Kelly would be their #1 candidate. As an Eagles fan I am not happy about that!
I would be so pissed. I can almost guarantee that Chip will not be successful in the NFL, and will run back to Oregon in 2-3 years. If my beloved Eagles hire him I will cry for three days straight.
not a chance IMO
norv turner firing will be about 3 years too late
Bumping because I called it. Hehe
Lmao. Bumping again because I called it some more..G
One more time for good measure (G)
