If Philly were a good team, they would not have fired the coach. But Philly has a lot more pieces to work with than the other teams looking for a coach.
And Philly has a lot of speed as the skill positions, which is what makes Kelly's offense tick. I see Kelly's offense being different in the pros than in college. Kelly is the kind of guy with 5,000 plays in his playbook, and he did not bring his offensive co-ordinator with him from Oregon.
Odds are stacked against him because he has no NFL experience. But Philly was ready for a change of scenery. Ried could have resigned when his child OD'd in camp
