No pressure, Chip

Other than having the entire franchise resting on his shoulders, and the specter of college-to-NFL coaching failures of the past to overcome, I'd say Chip Kelly has nothing to worry about.

Other than having the entire franchise resting on his shoulders, and the specter of college-to-NFL coaching failures of the past to overcome, I'd say Chip Kelly has nothing to worry about.

It's not as if fans or talking heads at local radio stations haven't already made him out to be the messiah of coaches. I can't count on both hands the number of people that begrudgingly think the Eagles have an outside shot at making the playoffs.

Water to wine is one thing. Water to smoothies - that's something else entirely.

With the Phillies in the tank, the Sixers angling for a lottery pick and the Flyers treading water, it's no surprise fans are ready to put their heart and soul into backing this squad, Vick and all. At least no one has referred to Chip's crew as the "dream team"... yet.
