Either Kelly has a great sense of humor or Eagles fans should be even more terrified that he’s been put in charge of personnel:
Chip Kelly’s first offseason at the controls has been full of twists and turns. The latest? The Eagles worked out quarterback Tim Tebow this morning, a league source confirmed.
Adam Schefter was first with the news.
Hmm. Well, in his only season as a regular in 2011 Tebow actually had a higher QBR that year than the injury-prone QB that Kelly just spent draft picks and more than $10 million in cap space to acquire,although neither could match the peerless Sanchize. So, really, Tebow does seem to be the kind of QB Kelly seems to be looking for — why not sign him?
Yes, yes, Bradford did improve all the way to merely “below average” in 2012 — a level Tebow will never get near — but I’m still not really convinced that “collect as many shitty overhyped failed 1st round QBs as possible” is going to be a path to victory no matter how good Kelly is with the xs and os.
…looks like Kelly is sticking with only two bad former first round picks for now.
