The best thing about this hire is that it's not Ted Monachino.

My biggest concern with chip was his eventual staff, this kind of is worst case scenario.


We should have hired gus bradley.

Eh, we will see. He can't be any worse than the Castillo/Bowles extravaganza.

Not extremely thrilled by the hire, but I am excited for the switch to a 3-4.

All you mock drafters, act accordingly in your predictions. Thanks.

im guessing this was the discussion in eagles country.
"hey we need a leader we are missing a leader"
"lets get ryan, he cant run a 3-4 and we run a 4-3"
one year later
"ok that didnt work....lets screw ryan and go to the 3-4"

Was disappointed that we couldn't get Chip. However I would gladly take our coordinators over what Chip got.

I can't name a single LBer on your roster off the top of my head. They can't be much of anything special. Anyways, Davis' history should be enough for me to dislike him.
