    Great move. Since the Eagles are the gold standard, it makes sense to see more and more former Eagle employees being hired across the league. After the Eagles win the next 5 Super Bowls, Andy Reid will be mentioned in the same sentence as Bill Walsh.

    As in “Andy Reid is no Bill Walsh”

    The chiefs had only 10 more sacks than I did last year and I was on my couch all year, do they not realize you need to be signing players instead of front office personnel and advertising guru’s

    Why would you change the Marketing brain trust in KC???
    For a team that hasn’t even played in a Super Bowl in 40 years and hasn’t won a playoff game in 15 seasons, their fans sure think they’ve actually accomplished something. This should be a Business School case study on how Marketing can change the perception of your customers.
    Hilarious.

    I wonder how many comments and views this story would’ve gotten if the the title was “Donovan goes to Kansas City after time in Philly” Everyone would be like “whoa! McNabb??” And then they click it to see that in reality this is not the juicy story they were hoping for
