Chip Kelly continues his roster rampage

Kelly wants the roster, his way...He has thrown all his chips, in the pot... If Kelly's hero's turn out to be Kelly's blunders
there will not enough security in Philly... Right now Santa is saying.. I don't know if i would do that, Chip!!

I'm guessing, the Eagles will either go all the way, or Chip will be fired, in two seasons.

Is Philly still looking to trade Mychal Kendricks?

Nope.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly made it clear Sunday that contract-year ILB Mychal Kendricks will not be traded.

"You can write that down in ink," Kelly emphasized.

Chip Kelly obviously, following this site :rofl:

Man whatever Chip is doing its going to cause him problems in free agency long term.

McCoy has called him just about everything in the book.

Boykin said racist I don't know about that but he is uncomfortable with players( I assuming young black players).
The NFL is a small group if every player gives a horrible impression of the staff and people are relieved leaving
the team. I can't see that in two years that many players, won't even bother returning calls from them.

His experiment is interesting to watch. It's a little surprising how little he also seems to value the offensive line. I think his offense is severely hampered by the physical limitations of the quarterback. Are teams figuring out how to better defend it? I'm not sure how else to understand how the rushing offense can go from one of the best last year to one of the worst this year.

I watched a match up show and they broke it down.. They said after two seasons the other teams have figured out how to hamper
the offense now with pressure up the middle and knowing the breaks better.

Bold prediction: Washington moves on from RG3 this offseason, Chip Kelly picks him up, and they prove to be the perfect pair.

I'm still high on Griffin. I think he showed immense promise his rookie season but you have to accentuate his strengths and his coaches have tried to change him ever since he first got injured. Let him be who he is and let's see how good he can be.

I expect them to lose to the Jets this week, and handily. Mad genius behavior only works when it looks more like genius than madness. Their next 5 games are Washington on the road, Saints, Giants, Panthers and Cowboys on the road. There isn't a game where I think, "Oh yeah, the Eagles got that one in the bag." They could easily start 0-4 with a stiff schedule following that.

I wouldn't be surprised if the biggest roster move this all leads to is Chip Kelly off the team at he end of the season.
