Chip Kelly sat in his office at the NovaCare Complex outlining what he wanted from each and every one of his coaches: Leadership, energy, intelligence, a great ability to communicate, and a mix of all kinds of football experience ...

davis will get the best out of players , and thats what we want right ? the best out of these boneheads out there. davis has pro bowlers on his resume. so if he can say or do sumthing that will get 2-3 pro bowlers on our team, then sounds like the man to me. he will be given 2 good years to show some promise. remember something for those ppl who will bash him, he didnt get the job by default. he obviously had a plan and vision the front o liked. there is something with him they liked more than other candidates. its not all about who didnt want the job, especially these niners coaches.

>>del sub: Jim Johnson came aboard the AR staff with similar credentials as Davis. Looking for an improvement in quality of play from the players in 2013...that alone will be a great start. I don't give a rats back end for the scheme; I want to see heart ,guts and toughness. Can some one please tackle like Sheldon Brown? Hit like Byron Evans? stuff plays like Hollis Thomas And defend like Bobby Taylor?

Now, maybe Coach Kelly will get around to setting adrift some of the less stellar names and chronic under performers on the roster.

Funny how they have a picture of Chip Kelly on the latest video of "Eagles Update: Meet The New Coaching Staff" As though Chip Kelly is giving a press conference to announce the staff and low and behold it's spuds lol

Not many "sexy" picks on this coaching staff. But, for the most part, they are all solid an experienced picks. It'll be interesting to see how well they fit together and what their plans are to improve the team. I was really glad to see that they kept Duce and Ted Williams around. The running backs were a strong point of the team last year and Duce and Williams played a big part in that. The are two excellent coaches and people. The only real head scratcher to me was Davis. I don't care how much Spadaro wants to gloss over Davis's past stints as D-cor and write about these nice little glowing celeb coaches testimonials. The fact is that he was really bad as a D-cor. The 49ers showed no real improvement when he was their D-cor and the Cards actually went from an OK D to a really bad one during his stint as D-cor there. So, Davis is going to have to prove to me that he can do this job right before I can think of this as anything but a really ill-advised hire

What a pleasant shock it would be if Stoutland was brought the the Eagles to create a ROAD GRADING OL? I know I want that Alabama TE (Williams) as an Eagle. Red Zone Offense screw ups be gone!!

The Browns offense was a fast offense for a good 6 years 1st down 2nd down 3rd down punt just like the Eagles the last two years. The defense was on the field all the time.

>>Odin: I'd cut the rest of the malingerers ASAP ( Bell is gone...what about Asomugha) and suffer the cap dead money. Training Camp will sort out the guys who might have a medium poor attitude and had no inspiration from AR's coaches.

Offensive coaching staff is a nice mix of abilities and backgrounds. I think there is some potential there.

Defensive coaching staff is a nightmare, and was approached in a very backwards way. We got all the positional coaches first, and all of those assistant coaches are collegiate coaches. I believe only one coach on the assistants list had actual NFL experience and it was 1 year's worth. Then, once we've dictated the supporting staff to any future D-Coordinator (thus, narrowing the available field since any hire would be "plugged in" to an existing staff with no flexibility to impact hiring decisions), we end up with a guy who has failed twice as a D-coordinator. I'm disappointed and skeptical about the future of our defense, and our team.

Davis may have a knack as an LB coach, but he's proven he is nothing special as the D-coordinator. It almost looks as if they're hoping he fails while they figure out which of these collegiate D-coordinator candidates among our position coaches is a viable option.

Contrary to the article above, Davis does not resemble Jim Johnson in the least...JJ's first D-coordinator job in the NFL was with Philly. He was unproven and proved himself. This guy is a proven loser, and we still got him.


Hopefully we will shift only to a 4-3 "Under" style of D rather than a complete blow-up into 3-4. Our only solid area in our D personnel is on the D-line. A true 3-4 move blows that up, opening more holes than we could fill in 2 offseasons. We need to draft a secondary, we need Matt Elam, and, unfortunately, we need to hope that the 3rd time is the charm for Billy Davis because right now, it looks like a defense headed for disaster. I guess we can't be much worse than last year, though...right?

Here's to hoping for the best while, unfortunately, expecting the worst. Prove me wrong, Chip and Billy, but the D looks shaky from the coaches on down at this point.

>>Brodieman: I think if you check facts on Jim Johnson, you will discover he was an NFL Defensive Coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts. Infante was his HC. 1997.

We don't have a LB coach. We have 2...one for the inside and one for the outside backers. Odd.

Jwood: I missed that one, and JJ appeared to do a bad job by the numbers...you've given me some hope. I'm still extremely skeptical and I don't take much back, but you were right, I was wrong, and maybe there is some hope yet!

Based on the 2 lb coaches, we are definitely going to have 4 LB's on the field often.

WR Boldin could be a salary cap hit. How quick it all changes in the NFL? SB champion...big game...now out...maybe.
