Writing this more so for my own curiosity. Since the storm that is the NFL Draft has settled, the irrational draft day behaviors such as throwing a pint of beer against your man cave wall are all but a distant memory, the moments of doubt and anticipation we had on our faces as the clock counted down on our picks which resembled the very same we had when astronauts Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck heroically tried to stop a asteroid and save our planet... are calmly back to its normal state of rational bro mode, or the simple pleasure of knowing that even if we had a bad draft, our team was still better than the redskins, cowboys, and giants on paper reassured whatever doubts we had going in.
The question I pose, is after everything has settled down, and you have had a chance to watch film on our players, debate it with fellow BGN'ers, do you still like the pick or would you of rather choose another player from the first round? Regardless of what the end result of the poll is, we should remember one thing and one thing only, Chip Kelly is revolutionizing the NFL as we speak, and most of us grew up as young lads and all we've ever been used to is Andy Reid. Every single day you turn on the tele or reads news from around the league more and more teams are implementing elements of Chip Kelly's offense into their own schemes. Just today, I read the Buffalo Bills will be running a "high tempo offense" which is another way for saying, we're going to copy what Chip did in Philly. Or how about the Dolphins, they hired our quarterbacks coach to implement elements of Chip Kelly's offense.
So the one thing to keep in mind is, although this poll might prefer a different player, it doesn't mean we the fans are right, we are chartering new waters here, might get a little uncomfortable at times, but I have to be honest at the end of the day, aren't you happy we have the coach everyone else wants to copy instead of a coach that tries to copy what we do? Even after all the turmoil and drama that was this off season....The Republic of Eagles Nation still stands...and we stand with Chip Kelly...Like a blind man at an orgy, were going to have to feel our way around as Chip Kelly does things his way, so while I support our guy, I still ask question...
