We may not win right away but you can bet it will be fun to sit in your seat, in late November, in the rain and cold, and watch this team compete. Nice job by the trinity!!!

Terrible Decision. Terrible Decision. Who is going to come be our D coordinator? With Bradley as head coach I would not have been worried about that as his defensive mind and fire would help build a tough D on its own. Once again we have an offensive minded coach who thinks he is smarter than everyone. Eagles ownership has once again gone for the flashy attention getter instead of the right decision. So disappointed right now.

That 17.5 point average we had this season was terrible so hope Chip can get us to 27.5 point average his first year

One advantage to hiring a head coach from a major college conference is in getting good and sometimes under the radar draft picks. Hopefully, Kelly can do what Jimmy Johnson did for the Cowboys after he left Miami.

I am glad we have a front office that's willing to take a chance to get to the next level. I just don't think

any of the other hires have the upside of this one. Gus looked like a good choice, but Chip has already

been the main man in a high-profile program, and, if you've ever heard him talk, has the smarts to

adjust.

Dumbest decision ever. We got someone who will try to implement a college offense in the NFL. The next Steve Spurrier. LURIE PLEASE SELL THIS TEAM NOW!

I'm not happy about Chip Kelly but I will still support the Eagles. I hope Oregon counter offers with more money and he changes his mind again. I think the guy is a joke but hope he proves me wrong. And he or his agent leaked the info. Should of heard this from the Eagles first.

Guess I won't be at any eagles game any time soon, let alone any play offs. The other teams in the NFC east see happy now they don't have to worry about us for at least the next 5 years

This could end up being Nick Saban all over again...I hope he drafts well because of he is a bust, we will need some good players to build around. It seemed like we had to convince him to take the job...I don't want a coach who has to be convinced to lead the eagles. I also don't like the idea of a coach who commits to one thing and goes back on his word...not a great way to build character in the locker room.

It all depends on our D coordinator now, as it has since JJ passed away. Was hoping we'd get Gus in here to fix this broken D. Chip will always have a job in NCAA, and I'd his ideas don't translate to the pros, he'll be outta here in under 2 years.

Pessistically reserving final judgment until after halfway through next season, but I am NOT excited about this pick.

I am glad the eagles made a decision finally on the new HC. I like some of the things he can bring to this offense. First things first.....staff is going to be key to his success. Great leaders surround themselves with a good supporting cast. Be interesting to see what develops over the next few days.

wow, really surprised by this. Kelly wasn't my first choice, but i will reserve my verdict on him until i see him in action. i think it is hard to tell if this is a good hire or not. i seem to remember a lot of moans and groans when Andy was hired.

This is a great hire. You guys would complain if we hired Bill Belichick and Tom Brady came with him... A few hours ago we were looking at Ken Whisenhunt as our next head coach... This is great.. So excited to see what this hire does for our team personnel wise and how it will translate on the field. Hope Chip gets a GREAT defensive coordinator and looks outside college for options for that position.... Nice job Eagles... This is a great hire...

Kelly's QBs average 100 rushes in 13 games, do you honestly think that will work here? Vick will get injured and Foles can't run to save his life. Guess we will be the joke of a team that takes the circus act tebow from the jets? Another thing is Kelly hasn't won a game against a good defense, his gimmick offense was failing in college with explains why he is moving to the NFL. His cashing in now since this is his only chance.

I'm an Eagles fan from Medford, but I moved to California 6 years ago, and my kids go to PAC 12 schools. If you live on the east coast you probably haven't watched a lot of PAC 12 football, but if you have you would know how amazing Oregon's offense has become. Oregon uses a fast spread offense with many different formations and many types of runs and passes from each formation. You never know what's coming until it's too late... and it comes at you so fast you have very little time to recognize it. Other teams don't know what's hit them. Chip Kelly is an amazing football mind. There is a reason NFL teams have been studying Chip Kelly's offense... it works (to the tune of 50 points a game).
