Apparently, Eagles beat writers are having a very hard time confirming who has been hired, what positions need filled, or anything involving Chip Kelly and his staff. Not sure that I like this.

Rick Minter is here with Philadelphia Eagles gear on. Azzinaro too.

Azzinaro is the guy we reportedly hired as our defensive coordinator, and Rick Minter is a guy we've apparently hired for to coach linebackers. As you can tell by that tweet, people aren't really sure right now.

Currently, Chip Kelly and his "staff" are at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.

This is a picture of him talking with Nick Saban:

For those looking for some rationale involving the "alleged" Pat Shurmur hire (or interest, whatever, nothing is confirmed), here's this:

Apparently, Pat Shurmur is at the Senior Bowl South practice wearing a credential with "Eagles" on it. Sounds like team confirmation to me.

A lot of implications from Roseman that we'll be running a 3-4.

Idk how I should feel about this.

Ryans obviously doesn't fit the scheme well and he's definitely the best player we had on defense this past season.

McManus: Chip Kelly wants to announce his staff all at once ... that's why we haven't gotten any confirmation of the hires yet.

According to multiple reports the #Eagles met with Ryan Nassib, quarterback from Syracuse, last night.

Syr QB Ryan Nassib said he sat down w/ #Eagles HC Chip Kelly and GM Howie Roseman last night. Spoke mostly about offense he ran in school.

I like the 1 gap 3-4 scheme. The only thing is our personnel doesn't really suit it atm.
Jenkins and Cox are perfect DE's. Dixon is questionable as our NT. (Effort, mentality, body)

Demeco can play in the 3-4 contrary to perception from his time with the Texans. (He was coming off an achilles injury, Cushing is/was their star ILB)

Kendricks would need to add strength. Don't really see him as an OLB although he does have pass rush ability. Could be an option

Graham has said he likes playing standing up. Did so at Michigan. He could work out as an OLB.
Cole would be suspect as an OLB. Don't see him playing well if the switch is made

Oregon was getting ready for its Fiesta Bowl matchup against Kansas State. During practice, the Ducks ran a screen, but execution was far from perfect. Long and his buddy, tight end Colt Lyerla, went to block the same defender.

After the play, they started arguing over who screwed up. That’s when Chip Kelly stepped in.

“Chip ran over and said, ‘Both of you shut-up. Get over here,’” Long recalls. “And he had this smirk on his face. I knew something good was coming. He always has this little paper in his back pocket. He pulls it out and draws a square.”

A pizza box, Kelly explained. Then he drew a circle. That was the pie. Kelly divided the pie into slices and wrote Long and Lyerla’s initials on them.

“He says, ‘What happens if I take your pizza, Kyle? Are you going to cry about it? Or are you going to take the other piece of pizza?’” Long said. “And that’s how he explained who to block on this one play.”

The message was simple. Things are not always going to go perfectly on the field. But don’t hesitate. Rely on your instincts and play fast.

Don't read too much into who #Eagles sit down w/ at Senior Bowl. Had speed dating-like chance to meet with all six QBs last night.
