Eagles statement lists three upcoming interviews, no Kelly

Eagles owner Lurie makes remarks on the firing of head coach Reid during a news conference at the NFL football team's facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Reuters

Lest anyone think they’re being played for suckers, the Eagles want to make sure you know they have plenty of other business in Phoenix.

The team just issued a statement, making it clear they had more people than Chip Kelly on their list, by leaving his name off the list entirely.

The statement from Eagles PR man Derek Boyko: “#Eagles heading to Arizona now to kickoff a week of interviews with a variety of candidates, including McCoy, Arians and Bradley”

That would be Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

So you know, that means they have options too. Maybe it “includes” that other guy at some point too. Like, you know, lunch.

    Why isn’t Lovie Smith being interviewed?

    Why is everyone meeting in Phoenix? Are there team meetings there or something?

    Lovie can’t coach offense. He’s screwed.

    The Eagles do not announce the names of college coaches for obvious reasons.

    If the Eagles hired Lovie Smith and a really good offensive coordinator they’d have a head coach who knows how to get a team to the Super Bowl.Hiring a no name is like hiring a mechanic to do open heart surgery.

    Eagles problems won’t be solved until they have a new owner.

    Gus Bradley will be the new Eagles coach. Lurie is kicking the tires of many candidates, but like Bradley’s enthusiasm, and abilities.

    I am no fan of the Eagles, I actually strongly dislike them, but Lurie has never come across as a problem owner. If anything, Id view him as the exact opposite, an owner who has patience and prefers stability over constant change.
