Do you care if Chip Kelly and the Eagles aren't talking to the media?

Last week I wrote about how neither Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly nor vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz would be addressing the media at the 2015 NFL Combine.The Eagles are one of three teams (along with the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints) who won't be available to the media at this event. Note that the NFL does not require teams to speak at the Combine.

I also explained last week why the Eagles not talking is noteworthy:

"This is noteworthy because the Eagles still haven't been available to the media since the team's power struggle surfaced early in the year after Tom Gamble was fired and Kelly gained full control over the player personnel department while former general manager Howie Roseman was "promoted" (see: demoted) to being a glorified salary cap guy with the title of executive vice president of football operations. The Eagles also declined to make Marynowitz available after his promotion."

I also noted that Chip Kelly will be required to speak at the NFL owner's meeting in late March.

Since then, there have been some criticisms of the Eagles for not speaking. Angelo Cataldi of the WIP Morning Show wrote a column about it for PhillyVoice. CSN Philly's Reuben Frank wrote a column saying the Eagles silence is "a slap in the face to fans."

But do the fans really care as much as the media says they do? Let's find out. Vote in the poll below and voice your opinion in the comments. We'll take a look at the results later.
