chip kelly runs a very successful defense. He is smart enough to know that the read option must go, and he will tailor his offense to a more west-coast style I would believe, and his defense would play into the hands of some of our players. Allowing his 3-4 looks will create a defense dependent on the play of ILB Kendrick who I think could be phenominal in his natural position, and D. Ryans wo could learn to play chip kellys style of D.

Nick Aliotti runs the defense for Oregon. Still would like to get Chip or McCoy though for offensive purposes.

He's the one guy on the list that I do not want to be the next eagles coach. I just don't think his game will translate to the NFL. With his high powered offense you would think he would have put a lot of stars in the NFL. I can't think of any. Doesn't Oregon usually lose whenever they play a good defense like LSU or Stanford? I think the only reason Kelly has been successful is because he has a big speed advantage over most of his opponents and the methods he uses to get these athletes to oregon is questionable at best since this is the second year in a row they have been under NCAA investigation.

Oh yeah, did I mention he has ZERO NFL coaching experience? Coaches out of college with no NFL experience are usually failures in the NFL.

I agree....I do not want Kelly in Philadelphia. As an OC maybe but not a HC. I just don't trust the guy. Give me Lovie or Arians

>>rohash: Lurie grabbed an absolutely OBSCURE QB COACH from Holmgren's staff ad made him the Eagles last HC...and kept him for 14 seasons. Was any of that RATIONAL? Lurie dances to his own drummer. He doesn't say much,but apparently wants to leave his unique mark on the NFL. Agreement that a Lovie Smith or Mike McCoy or similar make "sense" based on track record and experience in the NFL...that wasn't criteria in hiring Andy Reid.

Why spend 7 hours jawing with Chip Kelly? I think Lurie is genuinely curious about how Kelly thinks and Kelly's observations of football and trends in football. After all, Lurie has been listening to AR's thinking for 14 seasons--anyone else is a breath of fresh air. And, I think Roseman really "likes" Kelly--so they ar putting the time in with him when both sides and squeeze it in.

Both Banner and Roseman have their detractors in the NFL--especially former players. Neither guy is an attraction or a huge positive for a HC to play for Cleveland or Philadelphia....

ronster. I know you think the D-coordinator runs the defense, but chip kelly has to okay the scheme. He runs the defense, as does any head coah at any level. He makes all executive dcisions

@jwood, Reid proved to be a pretty good choice for at least 10 of those 14 yrs. I doubt you were in here complaining when he was taking us to all those post seasons. Now because he wasn't someone with wide world name recognition he wasn't the right choice. Please! Not everyone has to be someone popular. Just because they haven't been a HC doesnt mean they can't be, and be very good at it. Ditto for collage coaches. I think most Eagle fans still remember the failed Spurrier seasons and think that every collage coach is doomed to fail because he did..or Saben did. Jim Harbaugh hasn't failed, neither has Pete Carroll. So just because Kelly or any other head coach at the collage level hasn't been a HC in the NFL doesn't mean they can't be and be very good at it. Myself I really don't care who it is as I trust Jeffery and Howie to make the right chocie for this team.

Chip obviously makes calls on what players to try and recruit and general decisions, but Aliotti runs the defense and makes the calls during the game. I go to school here and am around the program a lot. Not saying that Chip can't run a defense, but it is always referred to as "Aliotti's defense".
