But tater Chip wasn't that good of a NFL football coach to begin with. I seriously questioned his ability as Captain when he started cutting valuable pieces on offense & defense.

Hellava job by Philly to turn that franchise around (SB title) in a very short time after tater chip was fired.

The only comparisons I see with Chip and Sean is that they both like to wear visors on game day. SP is quite possibly still the best play caller & offensive evaluator (see Kamara/Mike Thomas) in all of football. Visionary.

Side note - keep an eye on what Curtis Johnson will do with TreQuan (deceptive speed) & Meredith in 2018. Both of these cats can high point a football.

Right now, there's no one better at play-calling than Payton; he's had some gaffes in game management, but I still want him on the sideline...

My point is that you can get too caught up in the analytics and forget that the exam (player evaluation) also has a subjective component...

And that's what gives me pause is that Payton comes out with all these crazy BS excuses after he continues to over-reach in drafts...

Lane Johnson is outspoken it seems. As really heard a lot of players in the Eagle saying that Kelly was a cancer in the locker room not just that of in the playing field.

This isn't some cliche' quote or some he's an a-hole comment, but a smart, insightful criticism of Kelly by Johnson that merits thoughtful discussion...
