I was on the Chippa bandwagon hoping we finally had the right coach. I didn't like or agree with him shipping out most of our Core talent. DeJax, Shady, Maclin, In hindsight, his early success could be attributed to Big Red's players. I liked Chippa, was truly disappointed at how things ended. Good Luck Chippa with your new career.

In retrospect trini, what have those three players done since they left the Eagles? Maclin had one good year with the Chiefs and is probably on the chopping block this year due to his salary versus his play. Jackson did terrible in his only playoff game with the Redskins just like when he played in the playoffs for us against the Saints. McCoy missed the first 7 games of the year in Buffalo his first year with them and never won a playoff game while playing with the Eagles in three tries. These three players all had a chance to take the Eagles to the promise land and failed. Maybe Kelly wasn't so dumb after all. I don't mind a little criticism of the man because that comes with the territory but he was in the middle of a rebuild when he was fired. No one really knows how it would have eventually worked out because he never had the chance to finish the job. Lets see if Pederson lasts longer than 3 years. I know that he is a disciple of Andy Reid and Andy was well liked here but I have always credited Jim Johnson for the success of the Eagles during Reid's time here more than Reid himself.

LOL well maybe because he ignored the lines for his tenure?,Let the secondary go as well and drafted 2 unusable players? I can't give a failure any credit when it isn't due.Noone can succed with sub par lines and secondary running the only 11 plays that you know

Didn't we ignore the secondary last year?

No choice,the team was so bad we had too many chip holes to fill and the move up for Wentz hurt us doing a whole lot else

Wrang also take into account that we lost Lane early and Wentz had to do more on his own.Now that the line is more solid,I suspect MUCH better numbers from him(Titans had a better line for Mar)

In Mariota's first year he was sacked 38 times. Last year Wentz was sacked 33 times.

5 times in a year is not really a huge difference lol

Thats right. Both these players are very comparable including the two teams they are on in general. Both rebuilding but not there yet. What solidified Tennessee's offensive line this past year was my boy Jack Conklin at right tackle. Very seldom does a rookie make the pro bowl. Mariota was only sacked 23 times this year thanks to the addition of Conklin.

I personally have nothing bad to say about Chip. Here is a list of Eagles Head Coaches and their won/loss records since I have been a fan.
Joe Kuharich 28- 41
Jerry Williams 7- 22
Ed Khayat 8 - 15
Mike McCormack 16 -25
D Vermeil 54 - 47
Marion Campbell 17 - 29
Fred Bruney 1 -0
Buddy Ryan 43 - 35
Rich Kotite 36 - 28
Ray Rhodes 29 - 34
Andy Reid 130 - 93
Chip Kelly 26 - 21
Pat Shurmur 1 - 0
Doug Pederson 7 - 9

What is the common denominator between all these coaches? No Super Bowl wins.
Jeffery Lurie has been the owner for 24 years. No Super Bowl wins.
Howie Rosemen was the GM from 2010 thru 2014. No playoff wins. Then he was promoted to Executive Vice president in 2015 through the present. Still no playoff wins.
There is no way anyone can convince me that the reason why we don't have a Super Bowl win as of yet is due to all the bad head coaches we have had in the past. Bad talent yes! Ask Mr. Lurie if he would give his head coach 24 years to win a Super Bowl. Ask Howie Roseman if he would promote his under study after being in charge of a team that has no playoff wins through 5 years. I think we all know the answer to both those questions. A lot of blame to go around. Not just Kelly or any other previous head coach.

Chip SUCKED though, real talk. He 86ed proven talent to turn the eagles into the bad knees bears, literally EVERYONE he brought in was dealing with a knee injury the year before. He brought in his bullstuff gimmick offense. He crap the bed in the draft and set this team back years. There is a reason he cant find work now. CHIP SUCKED!

What if the Eagles would have done for Chip what they did for Pederson? In 2015 they weren't willing to move from pick #20 to pick number #2 to take Chip's quarterback Marcus Mariota, but in 2016 they were willing to move from pick #13 to pick #8 to pick #2 to get Pederson his quarterback in Wentz. I think we can all agree that Mariota would have definitely helped out the team better than Agholor has thus far. Lets not forget, Chip was fired during his second year of a rebuild. Using that same criteria if Pederson does not get the team to the playoffs this year he should be fired but that is not going to happen. The long and short of the whole thing is that Chip rubbed upper management the wrong way and that is why he is gone. Lets also remember that the same people who hired Chip have hired Pederson. The only difference is that now we also have Douglas in place at GM. If we are good this year, I will be giving him the credit for bringing in better players.

No, Chip was given absolute control of the roster and draft. If Chip wanted Mariota, he should have went and got him. Sometimes trades are not available at No.2. He also wanted Dion Jordan BAD, but Dolphins beat him to the punch (Thank you). Agholor was also Chip. (hey surprise, he sucks.) Chip rubbed upper management the wrong way cause he was given what he wanted and crapped the bed period. P.S. Pederson sucks too. I thought we should have stuck with Sean McDermott, but whatever it is what it is. At least Doug can prepare Wentz for the task at hand. All that aside, I think we have a good core of players. Can we win a SB? not likely. But......It is possible... E A G L E S !

Pederson doesn't suck(at least not yet) not many rookie coaches have alot of success.he made his mistakes and he learned

Obviously I don't know what Wentz's record would have been with DJax, Maclin and Shady on the team last year. The last year that McCoy played for the Eagles (2014) the Eagles were ranked 9th in the league in rushing with 474 attempts for 1992 yards with a 4.2 yards per carry. Last year without him the Eagles were ranked 11th in rushing with 438 attempts for 1814 yards with a 4.1 yards per carry. Don't really see much difference there. My problem with DJax is playoff games. He never comes through in the clutch. Kelly saw that happen one time and knew he wasn't good enough to get the team where it wanted to go. Jackson played a total of 7 playoff games in his career thus far and has a total of 21 receptions and 2 TD's. Definitely not your guy if you want to win a Super Bowl. I liked Maclin but if you take away his contract year with the Eagles in 2014 when he had 1318 yards receiving he was Jordan Matthews prior to that with his lifetime stats. Good enough to keep but not at the money he wanted. He had one good year with KC 1088 yards and last year 536 yards receiving. Not worth what KC paid him. Apparently Chip Kelly felt the same way as I did.

Damn wrang,you're good at using your search tools coming up with these stats.

yeah,we made good strides this year.I think we are on par or better than Tenn.Looks on paper that we made up much more ground than the 50% I was hoping for

First of all,I'm not a huge supporter of Chip either. Chip wasn't given absolute control until 2015 and wasn't allowed at least a 2nd year to continue the rebuild. None of us know if he was handed the the keys to trade from the 20 spot (or whatever it was) all the way down to get Marcus. Maybe he knew himself that their were way too many other holes to fill to mortgage the future away. And yes,you could be right that there weren't any trades to get up that far for Mariota to begin with. As far as all of that goes,he didn't get along well with others in management or his players. He treated his players like they were still college kids instead of grown men. Anyways,it doesn't really matter now,other than the Eagles have to restart. Now he's gonna be ESPN's puppet. Let's see how long that lasts! :lol:

So Mariota was sacked more,but threw more TD's I find that stat interesting

He's a very accurate passer and knows situational football very well. I absolutely loved watching him during his years with the Ducks! I was almost as heartbroken for the Ducks as I would've been for the Eagles-Not quite!-when they lost the Championship to FL State. That's a fun O to watch in college ball,it just doesn't & can't work in the NFL.

although, I'm a little bias I will admit. Pederson doesn't seem to have the balls to go get it in my opinion. However I think given his limitations in play calling due to A- not having the players to fit his scheme. B- not yet being able to open the full playbook. I guess I do have to reserve judgment on him. I like the way the O moved the ball between the 20's. Red zone kinda sucked last year. I don't have stats to back that up, just an observation, but I think its accurate, and I think its improved.

What are you bias to? In other words,what do you show favoritism for?  Last year we didn't have any weapons to take the top off of the D and open up the O downfield. Defenses became accustomed to that and stacked the box. This year,many more weapons in Pass & Run game. Should be able to go much deeper into the playbook,get the run game going and the Play-action will develop. Plus the guys won't have to think as much and be able to play faster now that they're in the same scheme for a 2nd year. This stuff takes time in this competitive league. I'm not expecting SB,but I would like to see us get to the post season and win at least one,maybe even win the Division. Have you read Tommy Lawlor's latest article yet?

Chip WAS given absolute control over the roster, Its was reported many times and that is exactly why Howie was not with the team. HE CRAPPED THE BED. I said it when everyone was on that bullstuff about IN CHIP WE TRUST. and kissing Seahawk a** like Philly should imitate them. Philly needs to go get it like Philly. You know what I'm sayin?

Yes,they def need to get back to Philly tough,word that! Pederson said he wants to build a bully & it's showing. Look at the OL,much bigger & better than when cowchip was here. I'm not sticking up for cowchip,but he didn't get complete control-if memory serves me right-till 2015. Yes,he def. CRAPPED THE BED in the draft!

I'm bias to conservative play calling. I'm bias to NOT BLITZING! and I'm bias to a predictable running back by committee where we put a big back on the field and everyone knows to stack the box. Especially when they know our corners are a weakness. To me that's just NOT Philly, it doesn't match up. ..... Air it out, Blitz often, ( or at least some) be PHYSICAL and FIGHT for it. That's just what I like, but everyone doesn't get their way. I'm always the MFer screamin Eagles at the top of my lungs. Cant nobody tell me nothin! so no matter what I'm with em. I know they threw the ball often last year, but it was dink and dunk. that's no way to open up play action or a running game, just a way to pad stats for a rookie QB. conservative AF.

If we have better CB play Schwartz will blitz some more. He generally blitzes about 25%. I'd like to see him blitz a little more often and disguise the blitzes better like Jim Johnson. But you need CB's that can cover for at least 2-3 secs. You can't blitz against QB's that get the ball out of their hands quick. I think it'll be much better this year now that we have better quality Pass rushers to rotate in & out and move around the formation. GO EAGLES!

I'm bias to conservative play calling. I'm bias to NOT BLITZING! and I'm bias to a predictable running back by committee where we put a big back on the field and everyone knows to stack the box. Especially when they know our corners are a weakness. To me that's just NOT Philly, it doesn't match up. ..... Air it out, Blitz often, ( or at least some) be PHYSICAL and FIGHT for it. That's just what I like, but everyone doesn't get their way. I'm always the MFer screamin Eagles at the top of my lungs. Cant nobody tell me nothin! so no matter what I'm with em. I know they threw the ball often last year, but it was dink and dunk. that's no way to open up play action or a running game, just a way to pad stats for a rookie QB. conservative AF.

I personally have nothing bad to say about Chip. Here is a list of Eagles Head Coaches and their won/loss records since I have been a fan.
Joe Kuharich 28- 41
Jerry Williams 7- 22
Ed Khayat 8 - 15
Mike McCormack 16 -25
D Vermeil 54 - 47
Marion Campbell 17 - 29
Fred Bruney 1 -0
Buddy Ryan 43 - 35
Rich Kotite 36 - 28
Ray Rhodes 29 - 34
Andy Reid 130 - 93
Chip Kelly 26 - 21
Pat Shurmur 1 - 0
Doug Pederson 7 - 9

What is the common denominator between all these coaches? No Super Bowl wins.
Jeffery Lurie has been the owner for 24 years. No Super Bowl wins.
Howie Rosemen was the GM from 2010 thru 2014. No playoff wins. Then he was promoted to Executive Vice president in 2015 through the present. Still no playoff wins.
There is no way anyone can convince me that the reason why we don't have a Super Bowl win as of yet is due to all the bad head coaches we have had in the past. Bad talent yes! Ask Mr. Lurie if he would give his head coach 24 years to win a Super Bowl. Ask Howie Roseman if he would promote his under study after being in charge of a team that has no playoff wins through 5 years. I think we all know the answer to both those questions. A lot of blame to go around. Not just Kelly or any other previous head coach.

Chip SUCKED though, real talk. He 86ed proven talent to turn the eagles into the bad knees bears, literally EVERYONE he brought in was dealing with a knee injury the year before. He brought in his bullstuff gimmick offense. He crap the bed in the draft and set this team back years. There is a reason he cant find work now. CHIP SUCKED!

What if the Eagles would have done for Chip what they did for Pederson? In 2015 they weren't willing to move from pick #20 to pick number #2 to take Chip's quarterback Marcus Mariota, but in 2016 they were willing to move from pick #13 to pick #8 to pick #2 to get Pederson his quarterback in Wentz. I think we can all agree that Mariota would have definitely helped out the team better than Agholor has thus far. Lets not forget, Chip was fired during his second year of a rebuild. Using that same criteria if Pederson does not get the team to the playoffs this year he should be fired but that is not going to happen. The long and short of the whole thing is that Chip rubbed upper management the wrong way and that is why he is gone. Lets also remember that the same people who hired Chip have hired Pederson. The only difference is that now we also have Douglas in place at GM. If we are good this year, I will be giving him the credit for bringing in better players.

No, Chip was given absolute control of the roster and draft. If Chip wanted Mariota, he should have went and got him. Sometimes trades are not available at No.2. He also wanted Dion Jordan BAD, but Dolphins beat him to the punch (Thank you). Agholor was also Chip. (hey surprise, he sucks.) Chip rubbed upper management the wrong way cause he was given what he wanted and crapped the bed period. P.S. Pederson sucks too. I thought we should have stuck with Sean McDermott, but whatever it is what it is. At least Doug can prepare Wentz for the task at hand. All that aside, I think we have a good core of players. Can we win a SB? not likely. But......It is possible... E A G L E S !

Pederson doesn't suck(at least not yet) not many rookie coaches have alot of success.he made his mistakes and he learned

Its an opinion....HE SUCKS!

although, I'm a little bias I will admit. Pederson doesn't seem to have the balls to go get it in my opinion. However I think given his limitations in play calling due to A- not having the players to fit his scheme. B- not yet being able to open the full playbook. I guess I do have to reserve judgment on him. I like the way the O moved the ball between the 20's. Red zone kinda sucked last year. I don't have stats to back that up, just an observation, but I think its accurate, and I think its improved.

Last year was an incomplete/band-aid added team.You know it's like asking you to build me a mansion with a toothbrush and a screwdriver and me being disappointed in you lol.Need the tools and learn the coaching trade.everyone had a first year sometime,so let the staff grow with the players,then we can pass judgement
