Buzz Bissinger thinks Chip Kelly is an arrogant fraud

chip-kellyThe Philadelphia Eagles are a disappointing 1-3 and many are blaming Eagles head coach Chip Kelly as they should. Before Kelly was even hired by the Eagles, naysayers warned the franchise about hiring the head coach that wore out his welcome in Oregon according to boosters. But after consecutive 10-6 seasons and a playoff appearance, Kelly was awarded control of not just the coaching duties, but also personnel decisions. That decision seems to be blowing up in the Eagles’ face and now the criticism is coming in at a rapid pace.For instance, “Friday Night Lights” author Buzz Bissinger has entered the fray and he doesn’t like Kelly one bit. In fact, he believes Kelly is an arrogant fraud.

“I don’t like him because he’s a fraud,” Bissinger told Angelo Cataldi on Tuesday’s WIP Morning Show. “He’s a fraud because he gets ordained by the media, and even now they’re too nice to him. He has no clue.”

“It’s his arrogance that I hate. It’s his feeling that ‘I don’t need personnel, I don’t need players, I just need my system,’” Bissinger said. “‘And if we don’t win, it’s because the players didn’t execute my system.’ That’s BS.

“Would you like to be in the Eagles locker room knowing that you’re completely expendable? That you’re always thrown to the wolves, it’s always your fault, your lack of execution?”

At this point, Kelly still has genius status within the media. But with former players questioning him at every turn and a team of his handpicked players struggling to win games, the narrative will flip very quickly I suspect.
