Lurie Letter to Fans
T
his 2015 season has had a lot of questions and confusion on all the moves that Chip Kelly has made, there needed to be changes made after seeing the team getting blowout in games by giving up 45 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving and to the Arizona Cardinals, another thing that was not not working was when he would release the players and not replacing the talent to fill the void. During his 3 seasons with the Eagles, Chip Kelly would go 26-21 wich included 1 division championship in 2013 his first year with the Eagles.

Owner Jeffery Lurie will hold a Press Conference on Wednesday December 30 at Noon from the NovaCare Complex
