Note to Chip Kelly Eagles Andy Reids pla

Postby sherry2018love » Tue Nov 14, 2017 7:29 am

Now that it appears Chip Kelly hasn't reinvented the game of football after all, theres something he, his Eagles employers and his Stephen Hauschka Jersey unconditional supporters need to do next.Apologize to Andy Reid.MORE: Worse disaster: Eagles or Dolphins? | Sam Bradford still looks lost | Kelly: Blame the GM in the mirror Kelly should, Jeffrey Lurie should and so should the Eagles fans. Not all of them, just the ones who really bought the idea that anything Kelly did was perfect and above questioning. Because all of these people swallowed the notion that Reids players, his roster, his choices, had to be purged before Kelly could fulfill his destiny.Throw out Reid's groceries, no matter how fresh and tasty. Kelly was walking the Bill Parcells path: If Im cooking the meal, Im buying the groceries.How does 1-3 taste? How about 2-6 dating back to the end of last season?It has to be tough to swallow that after Kelly began his NFL coaching career 19-10, including the playoffs. Considering he took over a 4-12 team, that proves Kelly can coach 'em up just fine. But this also has been proven:Kelly did that with Reid's players.To be fair, after 14 years, Reids time had run out. He was great in his time, better than the city gave him credit for, but he wasnt entitled to be there Mike Tolbert Jersey forever.Ironically, though, Kellys ascent came two years after the debacle of Reids career, the post-lockout 2011 spending spree that got the unfortunate label of Dream Team (by one of the unfortunate signees, Vince Young).Reid, Lurie and then-general manager Howie Roseman went all-in, bet on their collective roster-rebuilding brain power, and crapped out. Reid was greeted with skepticism at the time, not just in hindsight, even though hed been winning there for a decade.Kelly, though, upped the ante, selling Lurie on handing him full personnel power. And he was treated like Lombardi, even without the trophies.Now, Kellys housecleaning chickens have come home to roost.This isnt a situation where itll all get better when things jell and the chemistry kicks in and the players get the Kelly system ingrained. They have major roster weakne ses, and Kelly is the one who created them.But do you know what group did jell, whose chemistry did develop, who did pick up the system and thrived?Those ex-Andy Reid players Kelly inherited. DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy, Nick Foles, Jeremy Maclin, Evan Mathis, Trent Cole, Brandon Boykin and so on and on and on.They adapted and embraced and took off with Logan Thomas Jersey Kellys plan and went into the stratosphere. That 2013 opener in Washington, Kellys debut, really did look like a leap into the future. The Thanksgiving blowoutin Dallas last year, the one that got them to 9-3 and in position for home-field throughout the playoffs, was pulled off with the backup quarterback, of all people. (In Kellys defense: Mark Sanchez was his signing.)Twelve of the TreDavious White Jersey 22 starters from that Washington opener are gone, as are Maclin (on injured reserve that night), Foles (Michael Vicks backup) and Boykin. Twelve of the 22 starters from last Thanksgiving are gone, too again, including Foles (injured).High roster turnover is part of the nature of the sport. Kelly turned this one over just because he could, apparently. He had no honeymoon waiting. Tear up a talented roster and you'd better show results immediately.The applause showered on Kelly this offseason has been replaced by catcalls and demands for hishide. Hes earned it.Andy Reid has also earned something. Sorry, Philadelphia, Lurie and Kelly all took you for granted.
