I feel like Kelly had no intention to come to the NFL but was just using the interest the NFL had in him to get a raise from Oregon which he got.

That said I hope the Eagles make a strong push for either Mike Mccoy or Gus Bradley I think they are 2 of the top young coaches in the NFL today and both will make fine HC.

Also little surprised not see Mike Zimmer's name in the HC talk he has been nothing but a great DC no matter where he has coached

"-- and nobody in the Eagles' camp seems all that disappointed that Kelly is to remain at Oregon."

You really can't make this stuff up, I have never seen a franchise in professional sports that spins as much as these clowns do.

BG93, As a football fan It would be cool if the Ravens win the Super Bowl for Ray.It was great when the fans got him to come out at the end in the victory formation for his last home game.

IThink Eagles Should Go With This Situation,,

Gus Bradley Or Lovie Smith (DC)

1st Round,,Luke Joeckel (LT) (TexasA&M)

2nd Round,,Eric Reid (FS) (LSU)

3rd Round,,Khaseem Greene(OLB)(Rutgers)

4th Round,,Tyrann Matthuei(LSU)

5th Round,,ASolid QB To Back Up Nick & Maybe Vick,,

& So On With The Draft

Then Eventually Sign

LaRon Landry(SS),,To Help With Run Support And Him An The Other (LSU) DB's Will Have Some Type Of Chemistry 2Geva,,

Then Start Riley Cooper At 2nd WR(A Bigger Receiver)

And Keep Jeremy Maclin As The 1st WR

Then Use DJack In The Slot Match Him Up Against Slower Safties,LB'sAndCorners,,

Which Will Wear Them Down Once We Put Shady And Bryce On Em',, (Thats My Solution)

Oh my, BleedingGreen93 is on an offensive run... #44 (hello Hank Aaron) is in the books...You cannot get a Spadaro fastball past this guy...

I'm somewhat relieved that Chip Kelly is out of the picture...yet I long for some clarity, some certainty of future direction for this team...I was so desperate for leadership that I was willing to swallow a Chip Kelly hire. Now what?

Sure makes me nostalgic for the old days when you could count on the continuity of your coaching staff. But those days are long gone...

Onward through the fog...

Free Brizer.

I like the idea of Gus Bradley as long as we can manage an OC that favors ball-control so that Defense can have time to rest. Fast "Three and Outs" burn down a Defense and can act like quicksand on morale. Lost in how good Seattle is, are the facts that they are DEAD LAST in passing attempts and FIRST in rushing attempts.

A solid Defense plus McCoy and Brown making like Lynch and Turbin? With more talent on the outside and at TE?? We don't have a Russell Wilson, but we do have some decent options at QB, if Vick leaves. If Vick stays then it's back to him in Atlanta with Warrick Dunn and T.J.Duckett.

Get a Defensive HC and a ball-control Offense.

shawdee - good ideas all around. the only change i'd make to your list is that i would chose matt elam instead of reed. I'd love to get greene as well.

Not a Kelly fan. Maybe now we can move on to some serious selections.

hey birdflipper - as far as TEs go, what do you think about that kid from U of Washington sefferian-jenkins. theres a possibility of him declaring next year.

Kid is 6'6, 260. I think he would add a great over the middle and RZ target to our offense.

Happy that Kelly is going back to Oregon. Let's keep moving. No Jay Gruden or Bruce Arians. Bradley or McCoy would be nice hires with strong coordinators on the staff.

it is too bad about Chip Kelly. I really think that he would have let Michael Vick stay as an Eagles player. I'm not sure any other coach is going to do that.

Is Mr. Bri still not allowed here? What is wrong with you people?

Although I think that Gus Bradley would be a good selection, I also think that we should interview Mike Zimmer from the Bengals.He has been a good defensive Cord. since 2000. Might as well interview Vic Fangio from the 49ers as well before making a decision. Notice the theme to my interviews? All good defensive coordinators! Ha

Lurie said he has his list. His hopefuls. After meeting Chip for so long, I guess we know who was on top of that list. Somebody wasted somebodies time during that meeting that's for sure.

I wonder if they were(are) waiting to interview the coaches this week the ones they weren't allowed to interview last week. The list of candidates so far aren't that impressive. I like that idea of the Cinci DC.

Keep Vick??? Really? I vote that post the worst post of 2013. Have you learned nothing in 2 years? Let me guess, you want Reggie Brown back at WR and Mathews back starting on defense. Ugh.

Jon Gruden is in the mind of Jeff Lurie....Just trying to figure out what its gonna take$$$$$ to get him here and what kind of control he will want.. I say give Jon what he wants and tell Howie take a backseat .

So really nothing has happened yet in this search other then that Chip Kelly and Bill O'Brien are both staying in college, I really believe those 2 were our top 2 targets and they were both longshots with their ties to college game and buyout etc..... So we interviewed Armstrong and Nolan and lets be honest Armstrong was a Rooney rule interview and Nolan was never getting the job in the first place. McCoy was one I was hoping blew the suits away in an interview but obviously he did not. So we keep moving. Arains is an awful candidate. Bradley we think would be a nice hire based on how his defense plays and that he is a firey guy with some real emotion which is nice. I know it's early on in the process but Lurie if it feels you have your guy hire him and don't let him get away, because if you "leave no stone unturned" and interview everyone and their brother just to be dilligent you might lose out on a good head coach.

We do not want EITHER Gruden. I've lived in Orlando for over a decade, and I got an up-close and personal look at how badly Jon Gruden killed a powerhouse Bucs organization that Dungy built. And I got to watch Jay underachieve and ultimately destroy the (Arena League) Predators year after year as their head coach when they were a powerhouse for so long. Trust me... neither Gruden is an answer to our prayers to take us to Lombardi land for shots and beers.
