How can you already be calling for chip Kelly to be fired? Yeah just reading some of the comments from the thread was pretty disappointing as was watching the game today. But seriously what did you expect from a 4-12 REBUILDING TEAM. I understand everyone’s frustration but chip Kelly needs time.
I don’t think anyone is more displeased with the play of the team than chip Kelly. His quarterbacks have not run the offense to its full potential at all. Honestly I think chip is only running maybe 60 or 70% of his offensive plays if that. Why would he unleash all of his crazy formations and creative plays when he doesn’t even have half of HIS type of players yet?
We don’t have a good enough defense to even think about contending for a Super bowl so why show the whole NFL your playbook? I understand that Chip is a win now coach but he only has so many pieces of the puzzle so there is no reason for him to show everything. I agree that he has some iffy calls on fourth downs but ultimately he doesn’t have all the players he needs/wants to run his offense. Especially a quarterback. How can you already be calling for him to be fired? This team could very well be a contender in 3 years but I say give chip his full 5 years and watch this team develop as he gets the players he wants.
On another note I think matt Barkley could be better than Nick Foles. The reason why is because he has pretty good vision and a pretty good arm on him. He goes out slinging and not worrying so much about turning the ball over. I understand that is a big factor but it can be fixed pretty easily. But Foles plays way to conservative. The problem I see with both Vick and Foles recent games are that they are waiting for the big play to open up and it just isn’t happening. Barkley is going out there and throwing it to the first man to get open and is moving the ball.
That all said I am a firm believer in chip and his system and I root for the eagles to win every game but having another losing season will not be so bad if we can draft our franchise QB. I don’t know about you guys but I am ready for our team to have excitement in drafting a QB like the colts with luck and the redskins with RG3. I have a lot more I want to talk about but this post is getting a little long and might just be a rant by myself but I cant believe some fans are already calling for chips head. Give him some time and understand that he isn’t showing everything and he wont this year; it would be a waste.
