Geno Smith, EJ Manuel, Logan Thomas, Matt Scott are the guys that look like Chip guys to be TBH. Funny that Scott and Foles can be on the same team again after Foles made Scott sit behind him and have to beg the NCAA for an extra year. Lucky Rich Rod got there for him, perfect coach for the dude. Tarvaris Jackson maybe? Vick is a good fit. Foles seems more like Brady Leaf than anyone else Chip has started.

Some people are down on [Chip Kelly] for being a gimmicky coach. He really is a lot more of a fundamentally sound guy than most people realize. Chip wants to run. He just doesn’t believe in lining up power on power. He’d rather spread you out and attack you creatively, but with his ground attack. His QB has only thrown more than 28 passes in a game 4 times, with a high of 37. The QB has thrown 25 or fewer passes 6 times this year.


So we'd theoretically go from a finesse passing game to a finesse running game. Somehow that doesn't increase my enthusiasm...

How can you run a finesse running game?

Take Geno Smith and Logan Thomas off this list and you have the two[maybe can add Renfree] quarterbacks that we would target if Chip Kelly was our coach.

Also, knowing this organisation, once Kelly turns us down, we'll panic and hire Gruden or Billick or someone.


I feel like we'll hire someone some of us have ever heard of before.

Probably someone like James Franklin.


Make Juan Castillo head coach.


One can only hope!

Of Course Kelly will pass more, but at least he emphasizes the run.

Geno might be gone but Thomas could be there. Why off the list?

Thomas makes too much sense for Kelly.

We're better off keeping Vick on a restructured deal than hinge the hopes of our team on complete wild card QB, I don't believe in any of them as an NFL QB

I feel you there. Don't think this QB class is strong at the top, middle or bottom. That being said someone has to play QB..

Logan Thomas sucks - it's either EJ Manuel[who I love as a prospect] or Matt Scott, IMO.

Logan Thomas is a project QB he has accuracy issues, has trouble with reads, the only reason people are enamored with him is his size

I'm kind of excited about the Chip Kelly idea.

As long as our Offence is balanced, and our Defense is like that from the 2000s, i'll be happy. Oh and the HC can draft players. Thats always a good thing. Cool

Prepare youself to disappionted then. I still doun't see him coming to Philadelphia.

Wabbit this is the portion that should have been highlighted instead. I'm all for creative ways to run the ball. Multiple formations, I, Wishbone, TE in the backfield, etc,. I've despised for years now how when it is 3rd and short, 4th and 1 at the goal line, Moron always calls for a bunch formation knowing the Oline will get absolutely no push and try to punch it up the gut or bounce it outside every single time. Spread the Field and open up running lanes for McCoy to gash the whole/cut back. If Chip Kelly or another coach brings that type of mentality or creativity, I'm all for it. There's a difference from a Finesse running game and a creative one IMO.
