Kelly received some solid playing time hopefully he knows how to prepare himself for next season. The team invested heavily in Reynolds so hopefully that pays off.

BG> i been thinking about that coach your interested in going after and i dont think we should try and get him. Granted he would be better than chip kelley but i have concerns with him too. You cant really know if he is a successful coach bc Tebow bailed him out a lot when he would run and they still have a hard time scoring on the O side of the ball. Plus peyton is just a god that doesnt need to listen to his plays when hes always audibling. I said i like childress and now i'm actually thinking about dirk koetter, OC from falcons. They have improved their O tremendously since he has arrived and also seems to know how to attack defenses. I know they have a lot of weapons but they are using them to their strengths... What do you think of this candidate???

Bullll Shhhhh. Years of bad drafting and personal mismanagement. Resulted in reliance on free agents and failure to develop a cohesive team. Arrogance comes before the fall said roman cohort to Cesar. What we needed instead of every Yes man Andy collected is someone who would get in Andy's face and say no you will not ...those are called GMs. Real football GMs with track record of success, and not groomed from accounting department.

I agree the line is ripped apart this year.We need to draft another T for future development. I also think we still need to draft future D lineman, the line is where it all starts. More than the safetys i think our corners are soft and average. I remember Troy and Lito in their prime as well as Eric Allen.Eesily said but the corners need vast improvement.

Yo Dave, Happy New Year! If you happen to know, or could find out, it would be nice to know how Jason is making out with his rehabilitation. That guy is definitely a critical piece in our puzzle.

Once an occurrence, twice a coincidence, three times a trend. Love that quote from Brian Billick yes folks I believe he won a SB with Trent " I like to be bald" Dilfer and one of the best DEFENSES of all time which has even helped Marvin Lewis keep his HC job for years. This has been an on going problem for AR his whole tenure. The line just can't stay healthy for whatever reason. This has killed the VICK experiment and if they don't fix this FOLES will not survive either. It still all starts with DEFENSE. Chip Kelly are you freaking kidding me hire a coach that has one a SB plenty out there.

This team needs some superstar talent. There is no denying that this team lacks playmakers. The line has been crossed. They either hit on some real monsters in the draft and pay the money to guys that can fit in here through free agency OR they will sink into a six year rebuilding(or worse). The idea is that you want to handle your business in the draft so you aren't relying on free agency.

Billick is an a**. He is an intelligent guy. He is a better hire than some of the names I've been seeing. He has to be incredibly difficult to deal with but maybe that's what Roseman needs. If he remains.

This last offseason I wanted some offensive weapons. Now I can see this team needs a complete rebuild. So I'm thinking top priorty is a defensive coach. This team has spent so much on defense. So I'm thinking put all this young talent with a great coach and a couple of new pieces. Get the D rocking and then at some point try and get that QB. I think a top defensive mind using this draft and free agency potential could shore up this defense in good time. This defense was supposed to dominate this season!

Why is Billick an a**, Did you forget he was the OC when Randall C. had his best year as a pro QB. 15-1 in 1998. Chip Kelly is not the answer.

Darksnake....I like that Mike Mccoy builds an O around his players he didn't try and force Tebow to play in the same O that he had Orton play in(which Orton had success). He also helped Jake Delhomme look decent his last good yr was 08 the last yr Mccoy coached with the panthers

And they have said that Mccoy was a big factor in Peyton Manning wanted to come to Denver.

Dirk Koetter my issues is that he took over a high powered Falcons O of course it looks amazing were was that success with the Jags??? The only real good season he had with the Jags as OC was his first yr there 07 he was 6th in scoring after that the team O struggled.

I also like Rick Dennison(Texans OC) he has taken that texans O to a new level since he arrived in 2010 and he knows how to play with balance I believe the texans pass to run ratio is like 51%-pass 49%-run. Dennison also works with 2stud RBs Arian foster/Ben Tate and had both guys playing amazing football and with are talent at RB I think he would get the best from them as well

Good teams overcome injuries just look at the 2010 packers as prime examples that team was plague with injuries from top to bottom and they still found ways to win and become SB champs. This Eagles team is just not good simple as that and turnovers have plagued us for yrs now mainly in the last 2seasons

Spadaro is wearing his "denial" sunglasses again. Obviously the Peters injury and subsequent injuries hurt the team. HELLO?!?!? Don't think anyone disagrees with that. The OL personnel simply do not effect the D play--which suffered from letdowns and gutless,heartless & brainless play. The OL package doesn't tell Vick NOT to throw a pass out of bounds, nor does it tell him to force a pass, nor does it tell him to run and take a hard sack.

The OL personnel don't tell AR to hire a convicted felon and struggling to stay straight-druggie as an assistant strength coach, nor do they cause him to bring a hoard of steroids to training camp or overdose on heroin while at camp!

>>BG93: I think Vick makes a very interesting point with his comments about the OL changes between Mudd and Castillo. Vick evidently was less comfortable with Mudd's system and he didn't like the additional responsibilities of making identifications/calls--which Jamaal Jackson did for him in 2010. It could VERY WELL BE that Mudd's impact would have been "perfect" for player with Peyton Manning grasp of an offensive system...I read Vick's comments as he struggled with the change.

Again, the shows me that AR and MM are complete detached from reality--and refuse to adapt to the strengths /weaknesses of their players. If Vick couldn't handle it--and it was causing problems--a wise and adaptable HC might have figured out a compromise.

I don't think Vick is throwing Mudd under a bus--as much as admitting his limitations as a player.
