Let's get to the links...

Buzz Bissinger calls Chip Kelly a 'fraud,' cites 'arrogance' - Philly.com
Tuesday afternoon, Buzz Bissinger doubled down on comments he made earlier in the day about Chip Kelly being a "fraud," telling 97.5 The Fanatic's Mike Missanelli it’s time for the team to find a new coach. "I think he should be fired after the season," Bissinger said, clarifying he’d let Kelly go if the Eagles end the season with a losing record. "I think it’s clear now the gimmick is over and coaches have figured it out," Bissinger said.

Brian Billick: Eagles are 'a powder keg ready to blow up' - PhillyVoice
"This thing is a powder keg ready to blow up, because as you guys know, you talk to the players, I've done their games, even when they're 10-6 the last two years, the players aren't real fond of the way they do business and the way they practice. They feel like they're being treated like college players."

Style Points - Iggles Blitz
Chip Kelly made the point on Monday that the Eagles were two kicks (actually three) away from being 3-1 and everyone being happy. I do agree that if the Eagles had made those kicks, the vibe around this team would be very different. We don’t know for sure the Eagles would have won those games. Making those kicks would have had a ripple affect in those games and you just don’t know how things would have played out. But for now, let’s assume the Eagles did win and were 3-1. That would be nice. But style points would still matter. The Eagles have not played a soft schedule to this point. It looked that way on paper in the offseason, but things turned out differently. The issue with style points is how the Eagles played.

Eagles' Jason Kelce: 'It isn't getting any better' - Daily News
IT'S OFTEN been said that the only time people really notice offensive linemen is when they screw up. Four games into a season that is just one more loss away from being placed on life support, everyone is noticing the Eagles' offensive line. Their poor play in the first quarter of the season is at the heart of what's wrong with the Eagles' offense.

Eagles Key Plays: How They Happened - Birds 24/7
We ran a big play-action and the safety got really wrapped up," Shurmur said. "Jordan was on the other side of the field running an over‑route and the safety sort of got wrapped up with that. Jordan did a good job of nodding his post to keep the corner outside, and Sam made a good throw. Threw it nice and tight down the alley, and he certainly made a great catch."

Eagle Eye: Cox, Logan Were Truly Dominant - PE.com
The Eagles were dominant against the run on Sunday, and everyone played a part. Malcolm Jenkins and Walter Thurmond filled the alley well. Jordan Hicks and DeMeco Ryans were stout. Brandon Graham and Connor Barwin set the edge consistently. The two guys, however, who REALLY stood out were Fletcher Cox and Bennie Logan. We’ve come to expect performances like this from this twosome, but Sunday was especially impressive because of the fact that they both played more snaps with Thornton, Hart and Bair all out of the lineup. Let’s first start with Cox.

Second-year WR Josh Huff invisible in Eagles' offense - CSN Philly
This was not the way Josh Huff’s second year was supposed to go. This was supposed to be his breakout year. His breakthrough. Huff, a third-round pick last year, began training camp as a starter and had a decent training camp. And now? On Sunday, he got just four snaps in the Eagles’ loss to the Redskins in Landover, Maryland, the fewest snaps he’s gotten in his career in a game he’s been active for.

Eagles' Marcus Smith 'frustrated' by lack of playing time - NJ.com
"As a player, you want to play," Smith told NJ Advance Media following Tuesday's practice at the NovaCare Complex. "You want to be up and out there with your teammates. It gets frustrating.  "At the same time, you can only worry about what you can control. Right now the only thing I can control is me working hard each and every day. That's really it."

Bills players call out Odell Beckham Jr. for throwing punches during game - SB Nation
Since breaking onto the NFL scene last season, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham has become one of the stars of the league. In the eyes of some of his colleagues, that success has gone to his head. According to Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News, Buffalo Bills players complained that Beckham threw punches after the whistle when the two teams played on Sunday. Multiple Bills reported Beckham getting upset during the game and responding with his fists. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore went on the record about the receiver's behavior.
