FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: EAGLES FIRE HEAD COACH CHIP KELLY

With a week to go in the regular season, Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie cleaned house on Tuesday as he fired both head coach Chip Kelly and VP of Player Personnel Ed Marynowicz.  After winning ten games each of his first two years with the team, Kelly put his stamp on the 2015 squad by trading star RB LeSean McCoy and trading for Sam Bradford to serve as his QB.  With the Eagles already out of playoff contention amid reported rancor between Kelly and the front office, the move was made with still one game left on the schedule. 

Analysis:  Well that was a swift fall.  Kelly absolutely blew what was shaping up as a very good start to his pro coaching career, with the first and most destructive move being his trade of McCoy who was the team's best player and most potent offensive weapon.  While dealing away Nick Foles turned out to be the right thing, the addition of Bradford was a disaster which didn't help his standing.  It should be back to college for Kelly who will have no shortage of suitors.
