The Philadelphia Eagles are going from the mastermind Chip Kelly to Frank Reich. The Eagles are expected to hire the former San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator. How many times will they run the ball up the middle and injure their own linemen? We will find out how long the fans in Philly will deal with his BS.

Reich was fired from the team where he had a Pro Bowl quarterback in Philip Rivers, a Hall of Fame tight end with Antonio Gates and some solid weapons to fill around with Keenan Allen, Danny Woodhead and Stevie Johnson. Reich could not create a running game and could not put points on the board. The fans were sick of his playcalling and were tired of seeing the talent wasted on offense.
The Chargers brought in Ken Whisenhunt to take over the offense and Reich looks like he will get another opportunity to run an offense with the Eagles. He gets to see Ryan Mathews again and will also have DeMarco Murray to work with on his offense. Hopefully they like running plays out of the shotgun on offense in Philly and hopefully they don’t like running the ball too often.
I am happy that Frank Reich is off the team now and the Chargers have someone else calling the plays for the team. Frank Reich took over the position from Ken Whisenhunt and has not added anything of value to the offense. The Chargers offense will move differently this year. I expect the Eagles offense to falter with Reich making the calls and eventually will have a ton of injuries on the offensive line.
Thanks to Nick Mansoor, on this video:
I can’t wait to see his reaction to adding Frank Reich as the offensive coordinator. It is going to be amazing! I CANT FREAKING WAIT!
