In his first season in the NFL, Chip Kelly has the Eagles at 6-5 and in first place in the NFC East, something not many people expected. Kelly is starting to win over Philadelphia.
There have only been five teams in the league you can count on for survival. And I mean really count on. They rarely make you sweat, and when they do it’s only a temporary perspiration until they regain control of the game. These teams are the Broncos, Chiefs, Patriots, Seahawks and Saints.
Philadelphia is having a good time with Chip Kelly. After losing three straight, the Eagles have won two in a row, are scoring points, and everyone seems to be happy with the Eagles head coach at the moment.
Eagles kicker Alex Henery has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for a horse-collar tackle in Thursday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

If there was a poll taken of Andy Reid’s approval ratings during the last days of his final season with the Eagles, you can almost certainly be assured that it would have been very low.

Chip Kelly was direct, accountable and right now seems very patient in dealing with the media and something new Kelly very rarely had to deal with at Oregon—losing.
It’s almost impossible to prove, and it seems almost impossible to police. But it started during the opener against Washington, and it seems as if it’s continued ever since.

On Thursday night, Andy Reid returns to Philadelphia as his Kansas City Chiefs take on the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Also, at halftime, the Eagles will retire Donovan McNabb’s number five jersey.
Andy Reid comes back to town to face his old team and Chip Kelly acknowledges that Reid is familiar with the current roster. Franchise QB Donovan McNabb will see his jersey retired this tomorrow and Eagles fans everywhere will embrace the end of an era and look forward to the next.
Andy Reid was coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for a long time. His star player thinks he wishes he never left.
