Re: New guy in Phila....Good or Bad?

I'm gonna go with good. He's got a lot of NFL experience. He's played for successful head coaches in the past. I.E. Don Shula, Mike Holmgren, Mike Sherman and Andy Reid. He is currently an assistant under Reid and reports say he is responsible for turning Alex Smith into a respectable QB.

His won-loss record, as a head coach, is the same as the other guys the Eagles interviewed except Tom Coughlin. Coughlin was a short term coach so he never had a chance.

Any way you slice it, the next head coach has a mess to straighten out. Thanks to the genius of Mr. Kelly.


Btw, I know he hasn't played in a lot of NFL games but he did play and you can learn a lot by watching from the sidelines.

Re: New guy in Phila....Good or Bad?

100% on board with this. I am behind this guy in spite of whatever front-office politics is going on with the Eagles. I was listening to WIP and the poll they are running is very much against Doug P. and so once again - the fans justify the name Negadelphia when referring to a doggie downer attitude. Who do they want; Vince Lombardi? We have a new head coach and I don't care if Andy Reed (SP?) had anything to do with it; he's our guy now and I am hoping that he brings the very best out of this team and makes it a contender once again.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: New guy in Phila....Good or Bad?

A guy who was in the league for years as a backup usually makes a much better coach than one who had insane talent. The backup was there due to his knowledge and ability to prepare--two things that make a very good coach.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

I think Laurie wants to get back into the Andy Reid style of football....

Good or bad time will tell, I thought Chip was going to get us there three years ago.
If he's the guy lets support him and get it done.
Soon to be 50 of them and we don't have one yet.

Re: New guy in Phila....Good or Bad?

On the surface it seems underwhelming,certainly wasn't impressive as a player here which I think prejudices alot of our "knowledgeable fanbase"opinions.

I looked up some video of him talking to the press in KC and he seems on the ball.

I think the question and my concern will be,does he have it in him to instill discipline and effort in this group of players?

This team and fans going all the way back thru the Andy Reid era seem to have a habit of anointing themselves as something special before they earn it.

I will let you know a year from now.
We have to give the guy a shot.
Depending who is on the roster will make a difference.

Re: New guy in Phila....Good or Bad?

Can you say rebuildIng? If he gets the team to the playoffs in three years and is a legit contender in five I will consider that a success.
