Philadelphia Eagles fire coach Chip Kelly

Atlanta ranks just behind NFC South foe and league-leading New Orleans in both total offense and passing yards per game. It’s drawn praise and respect from nearly every opponent the Falcons have faced — except the Eagles.

Philadelphia defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz was quick to heap great words on Falcons receiver Julio Jones — the man responsible for the aforementioned 300-yard explosion — but also downplayed the effectiveness of Atlanta’s offensive coaching.

McKelvin was burned badly by Falcons receiver Taylor Gabriel for a 76-yard score and dropped a gift interception that could have iced the game. The corner, however, was able to snag the game-ending pick, after which he called out Atlanta for calling what he believed was the same play.

“They actually ran the same play back-to-back,” McKelvin said. “Don’t do that. That was just a bad mistake. They ran the same play back-to-back, and I made a play.”

The Eagles also announced that Ed Marynowitz, Kelly’s hand-picked vice president of player personnel, was also released. It’s a telling part of this change in direction. This firing comes nearly a year to the day that Kelly got control of the personnel department last offseason, leading to former general manager Howie Roseman having a reduced role on the football side of the team. Roseman, now an executive vice president, will be part of the group that hires the next Eagles coach.

Kelly made a number of aggressive moves over the offseason, trading LeSean McCoy for Kiko Alonso, trading Nick Foles for Sam Bradford, signing DeMarco Murray, letting Jeremy Maclin leave, releasing guard Evan Mathis and signing cornerback Byron Maxwell. Those moves, perhaps more than his coaching strategy, led to his demise. Tom Donahoe, former GM of the Bills and senior football advisor for the Eagles since 2012, will assume the role of senior director of player personnel.下载 (6)

Quarterbacks taken second overall don’t sit for long, but the Eagles could redshirt him even if Bradford winds up elsewhere in 2016. Daniel is seen by coach Doug Pederson as a future starter and capable of holding down the fort until Wentz is ready for action. In his favor, the Eagles are a nice landing spot for a young quarterback — better, right now, than Cleveland.

The rookie will battle history along the way. Of the 69 first-round passers taken between 1984 and 2015, only two — Delaware’s Joe Flacco and Alcorn State’s Steve McNair — emerged from non-FBS schools. There’s also the question of Wentz’s breadth of experience: He started just seven games as a senior, completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,651 yards, 17 touchdowns and four interceptions. A mobile runner, Wentz also plowed his way for six scores on the ground.

In a four-day span this week, the club is conducting private workouts with Cal’s Jared Goff, Stanford’s Kevin Hogan, North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz and cheap jerseys and Memphis’ Paxton Lynch a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Draft experts consider Goff and Wentz as the draft’s top two quarterbacks, and Goff worked out for the club on Monday. Wentz’s workout with the Eagles will be Wednesday, and Lynch’s is on Thursday. Rapoport reports that team owner Jeffrey Lurie is making the trip for each workout, indicating the seriousness of the club’s interest.

Sam Bradford threw for a career-high 3,725 yards last year for the Eagles, but his 19-14 touchdown-to-interception ratio was a concern. The club’s commitment to Bradford is less certain now that the man who traded for him, Chip Kelly, is no longer the coach. New Eagles coach Doug Pederson is auditioning a lot of quarterback talent this week, and pro-day workouts aren’t as appealing to him in making evaluations.

Drafted by the Eagles in the 5th round of the 2010 draft, Cooper, 28, has seen his production nosedive the past two seasons after garnering a career high 835 yards and eight touchdowns on 47 receptions in 2013. After getting the new contract, Cooper earned 577 and 327 yards in the past two seasons, respectively, with just five combined scores. He averaged just 28.25 receiving yards per game — zero 100-yard receiving efforts — in his final two seasons with the Eagles. Cooper did not catch a pass in his final two contests in Philadelphia.

Snap Judgments, Week 5: Houston Texans looking like impostors

The high-priced quarterback’s ineptitude finally led to a quarterback change, with coach Bill O’Brien yanking Osweiler in favor of third-year pro Tom Savage, who led Houston to a 21-20 comeback victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“I’m just glad I wasn’t the one that had to make that decision,” McNair said Sunday, via the Houston Chronicle. “I mean, that was a gutsy call. Give coach credit, he made a change and it was for the good of the team. We benefited from it. Now we have three good quarterbacks and we are proud of all of them.”

Tom Savage is real and so are the third-year quarterback’s chances of taking over the starting job for a team in the playoff race. Once believed to be a fictional creation of the Draft Industrial Complex, Savage took over for Osweiler in the second quarter Sunday after two early interceptions by Osweiler against the Jaguars. The Texans trailed 13-0 at the time of Osweiler’s benching and Savage eventually helped the Texans pull off a 21-20 comeback victory.

“I think we’ve got three really talented quarterbacks here — I really do,” O’Brien said after the game. You can call B.S. on that, you can say whatever you want. I think we have a really talented quarterback room and we don’t make decisions on how much a guy gets paid. We make decisions on what’s the best way to win a game and that was the decision we made today and I thought today it worked out okay.”jersey

And yes, the dismal offensive start the Texans are off to starts with Houston’s new passer, Brock Osweiler, and reflects very poorly on those who decided to hand him that whopping $72 million free-agent contract this spring. Osweiler is making no one in Houston forget Brian Hoyer — and that’s not a good thing — and does not appear to be the answer to the franchise’s perennial quarterback issues.

In short, Houston has a very familiar problem. Osweiler looks tentative and cheap jerseys and continues to force some passes, and his 19 of 42, 184-yard day included his seventh interception of the season, to go along with his sixth touchdown pass. His passer rating was an embarrassing 56.1, and the Texans started 0 of 11 on first downs, not converting one until midway through the second quarter, and then via penalty rather than performance.

“He’s gotten much better,” O’Brien said. “He’s one of the more improved guys on our team. Very good run blocker, comes off the ball and strikes you. In the passing game, he really worked hard on his pass protection and has gotten better.”

There’s no disputing O’Brien’s claim. Su’a-Filo has gone from benched, injured or out of shape to a dependable asset on Houston’s offensive line. Also in O’Brien’s defense, Su’a-Filo looked like such a safer commodity coming out of the draft than Carr, though we all know what happens in life when you play it safe too often.

It’s fair to note that Osweiler has just 15 starts, but he’s been on an NFL team since 2012. After five years, the deer-in-headlights plays should be fewer and less egregious. Instead, Osweiler seems to display shakiness at least once a drive.

In Sunday’s victory over Detroit, Osweiler threw for only 186 yards, one touchdown, and his ninth interception of the season for a passer rating of 83.4. This was a Lions defense that entered the game allowing a passer rating of 117.3, on pace for the worst in NFL history, and allowed 74.2 percent of passes to be completed. It was a Lions defense missing its No. 1 cornerback, Darius Slay, and without its top defensive tackle and linebacker.

Although Savage lacks Osweiler’s mobility, he’s noticeably calmer and more compact in the pocket. Pro Football Focus tracked Osweiler with a 0.0 passer rating on four dropbacks under pressure compared to Savage’s 101.7 mark on 12 such attempts.

To be clear, no one is painting Savage as the savior. He entered the game in an ideal situation, afforded the green light to lock and load against a defense with no substantial game tape to take away his strengths and exploit his weaknesses. Osweiler paid for his two errant passes over the middle while Malik Jackson dropped Savage’s interception ball in a similar spot.
