Wouldn't that be hilarious? I was just asking my boss that who is a big Philly fan. "So, when are the Eagles going to interview Andy Reid?"

If the Eagles are lucky they can just wait until the other 6 teams get HC's then take the leftovers!

Maybe. But the word is, whoever it is, today is the day for announcing new head coach.

No announcement today.

That's not good for Gus. Flown in with a private jet then no announcement. Gus still scheduled to interview with Jacksonville this week as well.

The Ducks are speed personified. I'd expect him to move in that direction with the Eagles as well.

He took the job knowing the Eagles already went that direction and had the personnel for him to use.

Will Kelly keep Vick?

Will Kelly keep Vick as starting QB? This writer thinks Vick fits in to the offensive scheme Kelly likes - the Read Option play. »www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow···25.story

Kelly on the "Read Option" play:

quote:
Here's Oregon Coach Chip Kelly's take on it:

The quarterback is responsible for the sixth man in the box. He reads the defender and controls him. The quarterback is blocking that defender. He cannot physically block him because that is a mismatch. What he does is run the ball if the defender attacks the running back. He makes the defender respect him as a runner and keeps him out of the play.

At the snap of the ball, the QB & RB meet for a hand off, which is called 'the mesh'. At the mesh point the QB typically looks to the backside, for the player being read; the QB then reads the defender. Depending on whether or not the defender crashes the play, the QB has to make a decision on whether or not to hand the ball off, or keep it himself; all taking place in under one second.

It is usually the running back's responsibility to handle the mesh, while the QB reads the defender. If the RB is scanning the LB's, there will likely be a fumble. The RB must trust that the offensive line has fulfilled it's responsibility.
I don't think Vick will fit into the role if the "Read Option" play is something Kelly plans on using a lot for the Eagles. Vick is too small ; bad at reading defenses; & too stupid to successfully pull it off. Though when healthy is a fast elusive runner. Foles is big enough to see the defenses over the line and big enough to do the job if he has to block a defender. But so far he looks to be a pocket passer and doesn't excel at sprinting out and running when needed.

Will the Eagles trade for or draft a QB who can fit in to Kelly's "Read Option" scheme. Or will he keep his existing QBs and come up with a different offense that fits the existing players?

Even though he's a talented QB and the better of two, I don't think Vick is worth $15M. The Eagles would like to keep him, but at a slightly different price point. However, he has indicated that he's unwilling to restructure his contract, so I think this is a somewhat difficult to predict scenario. If CK thinks that Vick could be great in his scheme, he can probably make the Eagles to keep him even at $15M, or if Vick thinks that the team can have a good chance to go deep into the playoff, he might just change his mind and restructure his contract.

Re: [NFL] Who replaces Andy Reid as Eagles head coach at year en

I like the choice of chip kelly. I dont expect immediate results. He is a good coach, motivates and should be real good at drafting for the next few years. Im happy as i expect some exciting football to come with him.

Not to be left out Jerry Jones of the rival NFC East Dallas Cowboys has stated he himself will not own, draft and coach the Dallas Cowboys.

Unlike jerry jones lurie truley does keep his nose out of football decisions. Except of course when it comes to firing the people that do.
