BREAKING: The Eagles Have Fired Chip Kelly


Jeffrey Lurie fired Chip Kelly today. I didn’t see this coming. I don’t think anyone saw this coming.

Uhm, holy shit. Ed Marynowitz is gone, too. Pat Shurmur will be the interim head coach Sunday. More to come.

From the website:

Today, Jeffrey Lurie, Chairman and CEO of the Philadelphia Eagles, released Head Coach Chip Kelly.
“We appreciate all the contributions that Chip Kelly made and wish him every success going forward,” said Lurie.
Coach Pat Shurmur will be interim head coach for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
Ed Marynowitz, vice president of player personnel, was also released. Tom Donahoe, former GM of the Buffalo Bills and director of football operations for the Pittsburgh Steelers and senior football advisor for the Eagles since 2012, will assume the role of senior director of player personnel.
A press conference will be held Wednesday, December 30 at the NovaCare Complex at Noon with Lurie.

So, why the timing? Why not fire him Monday after the Giants game? Something happened.

Emmanuel Acho, who Chip cut before bringing him back before cutting him again this season, weighs in:achokelly

Here’s Donovan McNabb’s take on Chip’s firing:


  1. orange

    Again the philly media with their radio stations with all those dumb serfs that call in To fire chip kelly he was in the first year of his plan he was not allowed to continue his plan And see it through this made no sense this team ain’t going nowhere in the next 2 years anyway and moron lurie ain’t going to find another coach that will win anything anyway the eagles ever. No superbowls ever for philly.
    #no superbowls
    # lurie is a dumb douche
    #eagles suck

    This was all a plan to get Lurie’s boyfriend howie Roseman back into power this was a tribal move by lurie, obviously howie Roseman knows nothing about football what lawyer really does? Ever since lurie bought the team the eagles never had a football guy in charge. So he fired kelly for his lackey Roseman it doesn’t matter the eagles ain’t going nowhere ever in the foreseeable future. You ain’t winning nothing anyway.
    #no superbowls
    # lurie is Douche
    # eagles will never win

    Third your plan? My ass. Chip alienated everybody in the team and had no clue how to manage personnel. It wasn’t it wasn’t that he didn’t like black people; in like anybody
