Despite struggles in Philly, Chip Kelly has potential in NFL

Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles released Chip Kelly after three years and mild success. But the end of the road in Philly doesn't necessarily mean the end of the road for Kelly's NFL coaching career.

Give Chip Kelly’s mad scientist approach a chance

Sunday evening, the Philadelphia Eagles signed Tim Tebow as a quarterback. Or more appropriately, Chip Kelly signed Tebow as a quarterback. I would say that I'm surprised by this move, but after what's already transpired this offseason in the City of Brotherly Love, it's kind of hard not to be surprised. LeSean McCoy was traded to Buffalo. Nick Foles was traded to St. Louis for Sam Bradford. He signed former Cowboys players Miles Austin and DeMarco Murray. So when I heard the news about the Eagles signing Tebow, I wasn't really that shocked about the move.

NFC East not the NFC least this year

The NFC East has been a shell of its former self the past couple of seasons. The Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins haven't been major players on the NFL landscape in a number of years and the New York Giants have struggled outside of those Super Bowl years in 2007 and 2011.

Cold weather football–the way football was meant to be played

The Frozen Tundra. The Ice Bowl. Many of the memorable games in NFL history have been played in cold and even frigid weather. The Cowboys-Dolphins game in 1993, famous for Leon Lett's gaffe which cost Dallas the game was played in the snow. The Ice Bowl, the 1967 NFL Championship Game was played in Green Bay where the temperature was 15 degrees below zero and the wind chill was anywhere between 36 and 48 degrees below zero. It's considered one of the best games in NFL history. Simply put, NFL football is made for the cold weather.
