Chip Kelly: Schefter: Eagles and Kelly 'sick of each other'

After the Eagles' debacle last week against the Buccaneers, there was talk that their Thanksgiving game against the Lions would be a referendum on Chip Kelly. I think we did some good things the first two years. Whether its Lane Johnson, DeSean Jackson, or any other imbecile that's complained about fans booing, when I hear players speak like this, its the ultimate insult in my mind.

According to Football Outsiders, Philadelphia was the healthiest team in the NFL during Kelly's first two years.

SCHEFTER: I'll say this, Pat. Schefter did attempt to hedge his bets a bit, indicating that that was his "read, from afar" on the situation in Philly, but he did make it clear that Kelly may be "sick of the situation" in Philadelphia. "It was an ugly scene", Schefter said.

Schefter thinks that momentum is piling up against Kelly coming back, and that both sides are growing tired of each other. "You know they are still in the thick of that division race, let's not forget that". I certainly would include him in my question marks at coaches that we'll be tracking in January.

When I think of the Eagles, I think of players that embraced the city like Brian Dawkins, Seth Joyner, or Jeremiah Trotter. I don't doubt what your friend is saying about Chip Kelly being a "goner" or however you want to categorize it, whatever he said to you. Kelly's offseason acquisitions have largely failed to pan out this season. Personally, I think it's unlikely the Eagles fire him after this season.

Murray has given off the vibe all year long that he's a selfish player that doesn't always give his best efforts. With a mess this bad, it wouldn't even be surprising to see Kelly leave at this point, especially considering if there's problems between he and management.

In an epic 45-14 beatdown in Detroit, Kelly's team was embarrassed before a national audience, falling behind the Lions in the second quarter and never putting up much of a fight after that.
