Okay Birds fans who do we want for coordinators etc...
I think Mike Solari(49ers OL coach) would be a perfect OC for Kelly. I don't think Norv Turner is an option, though he's a great coordinator. EDIT* Add Jeff Tedford to the mix for me.
As far as Defense goes it has to be a great hire. Raheem Morris and Mike Singletary would be two of my favs, assuming we stick with a 4-3. A lot of other guys come into play if the D would switch to 3-4.

I actually think it might work out. If you look at the numbers, it's really a smart offense. Some of it has been used by the Pats and the Redskins, and it has worked. I think Kelly will be smart enough to change it up to fit the NFL if he needs. His QBs have been pretty efficient and accurate. We'll have to see I guess. Big question for me is if Kelly can deal with the Philly fans. I don't know if you've heard but we tend to be a tough crowd.

This is a boom or bust hire.... NFL folks seem to love him.... Who the QB are and DC are will be huge in terms of his success. The move certainly brings energy and a sense of we got our man. So ill take it!
PENN STATE FOREVER
Lovie Smith for DC, Dawkins for secondary coach.
Hey, an Eagles fan can dream right?

That'd be funny if he hadn't already been hired by Reid as the OL coach in KC. Thats why Andy fired him, so the Eagles had no say in him doing so.
My bad. Truth be told I thought he was pretty good as an OL coach. Andy just thought he was smarter than us no nothings by naming him DC.
As they would say on Its Always Sunny...
I am with a few others that I was really starting to like the idea of Gus Bradley and still think he may of been the best candidate but I gotta admit I want to see what Chip Kelly is going to do in the NFL.
From what I've seen on twitter from some NFL guys, apparently a 3-4 switch is happening and Chip likes the DC from Georgia Todd Grantham
Within minutes of this announcement, Urban called two of Oregon's top recruits.
Urbs loves being that knight in shining armor.
I think the reason he made that move was at the time Castillo was the only connection to JJ.

As an eagles fan, I don't really like it. He'll have to re-build, the eagles are going to struggle for a few years. I can see him bailing after a couple years for a soft college landing spot if they struggle.
You poisoned me!?

I am an eagles fan. Should i be happy with this or sad? I cant really tell. But if he can do the same stuff in Philadelphia that he did in Oregon, then man.. Are we in for a ride or what?? (In a good way)
Apparently Kirby Smart on the short list for DC per an Eskin tweet
Yeah Eskin claims Smart and Grantham are in discussions.
Bwahaha... they poisoned that bird... got her good.
