Chip Kelly: “Our Job Is Acquiring Talent, Not Getting Rid of Talent”

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet, so that this can marinate in the souls of all Eagles’ fans. Chip Kelly was speaking about Colin Kaepernick and said something that may give Eagles’ fans an instant heart attack. Here’s what Kelly had to say, courtesy of The Sacramento Bee:

Kap’s really good. I mean, he had the ball on the 5-yard line (intending on) taking the team in to win a Super Bowl. You can just look at the tape to see how talented he is. You know, our job is acquiring talent, not getting rid of talent.”

Are you kidding me? Since when? That certainly was not his motto in Philadelphia. I’m so over him.

[Editor’s note: This is hilarious. Chip Kelly trollin’ on in the afterlife. And honestly, I’m sure Chip thought he was acquiring talent here, too. But moving on from guys like DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin and failing to adequately replace them was his biggest failure. It remains to be seen if he’ll be able to fix that.]

    I love chip. Chip is the best! He’s Chip-acheck! Aw, bo! I would love to find a T-shirt with Chip pushing a wheelbarrow. In the wheelbarrow, would be Chip’s scrotum and testicles. And the shirt would read, “Big Balls Chip”. That would be awwwwwwwesome. Does anyone know where I could go to find such an elusive and creative T-shirt?

    The thing is #Culture Wins. People need to realize that #Culture Wins.

    The best way to let people know that #Culture Wins is with your very own “#Culture Wins” t-shirt.

    Don’t like that? How about $30 for a “We’re From Philadelphia And We Fight” t-shirt?

    Sorry, but i don’t see where all this “talent” is that he “got rid” of. He inherited an overrated team with no quarterback that was a combined 12-20 the previous two seasons he got here. He made mistakes last year in acquiring free agents, most notably Demarco Murray, but people act like he broke up the Beatles. Those players he “got rid of” never won a playoff game here. The o-line he had was old and deteriorating, Offering Maclin $11 million a year is a heck of a way of getting rid of him, guy has 2 acl tears too but it’s cool handing all that money over to him? McCoy got outperformed by a rookie this year, and Djax missed half the season because he rather go to the club than stay in shape, and then in the playoffs pulled another selfish play by not stretching for the end zone
