Most people watching the Eagles this year have come to the conclusion that Chip Kelly the General Manager hasn’t done a good enough job of building a team for Chip Kelly the coach. But Kelly doesn’t see it that way.
In his comments to the press today following the 45-17 beatdown his team suffered at the hands of the Buccaneers, Kelly admitted, “We were out-coached.”
But Kelly doesn’t think the problem with the 4-6 Eagles is the personnel.
“I feel confident in the guys we have right now,” Kelly said. “I think we have a really good football team. I’m very confident in our football players.”
The reality is, the 4-6 Eagles are not a “really good football team.” Whether the problem is the personnel or the coaching, that problem ultimately falls squarely on Kelly’s shoulders. And if he can’t solve the problem soon, the chatter that he simply isn’t cut out to run an NFL team will turn into a roar.
