Oregon’s Chip Kelly to the Eagles is the Rumor to Discuss at Christmas Dinner

Dec 25, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT

By far the two most frequent Philly sports questions to be raised at Christmas Eve gatherings across the Delaware Valley last night while relatives threw back a few beverages were “so what’s the deal with Andrew Bynum?” and “who do you like to replace Andy Reid?” Opinions on both situations vary greatly, but CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora threw another log on the fire regarding a potential Andy Reid replacement:

The Philadelphia Eagles
will consider Chip Kelly to replace Andy Reid, according to league
sources, and multiple executives with rival teams anticipate
Philadelphia making a heavy push to land the Oregon head coach.

A lot of fans immediately point to Kelly’s unique and high-powered offensive scheme at Oregon not being suited to the skillset of likely Eagles starting quarterback in 2013, Nick Foles.

Kelly would likely not bring the same exact scheme to the NFL but the point is one worth debating.

Do you like the idea of Chip Kelly replacing Andy Reid in Philadelphia?
