Every NFC East Team Has Tried to Hire Oregon’s Former DC to Stop Chip Kelly

Stopping Chip Kelly’s offense has been a problem for most teams since the former Oregon coach took over the Eagles. We don’t even know what other teams have tried behind closed doors. Faster practices? Attempts to decode sideline Macarenas? Fake injuries? But at least the Eagles’ division rivals have been making calls to a man they think can stop Chip: his former defensive coordinator at Oregon.

Nick Aliotti, who was the defensive coordinator at Oregon under Kelly from 2009 to 2013 (now retired), told the Oregonian:

“I have been asked by everybody in the NFC East. The Giants asked me to come back when Chip got the first job. I didn’t feel right doing that. Some teams have called when they’re getting ready to play the Eagles and they call and have certain questions on the thing. Unless I know the guy and he’s a good friend, I don’t get involved with that.”

I get that in professional sports you do whatever you can to gain an edge, but calling up a dude’s friends to snuff out his weaknesses? That’s a bad look, guys.

  1. “Some teams have called when they’re getting ready to play the Eagles and they call and have certain questions on the thing. Unless I know the guy and he’s a good friend, I don’t get involved with that.”

    So what teams employ friends of his? Because He’s basically saying he already has given some pointers to “a good friend” or more. If he hadn’t done so then his choice of words would be more like “I never did that”. C’mon Jim dig deeper….. We need to write off a game or two as KellyGate or something like that. Be Deepthroat Jim, Be Deepthroat.

  2. Henry, you learned the two greatest lessons in life. Always keep your mouth shut and never rat on your friends. This guy, not so much.

  3. Dumbasses…they should hire Stanford’s DC.

    The Eagles has ONE win against a team with a winning record…and all three losses.

    Gold Standard…BLOW ME

    1. I know!

      Jeff Lurie is the worst! He didn’t have a single tackle on Sunday. I think he might have had one pass deflection. He didn’t throw a single completed pass either.

      Let’s hope he can play better at middle linebacker against the Cowboys.

    2. take a look at all of the other teams in the NFL who have 3 or less losses and see how many of those losses came against teams with winning records…I’ll bet almost all of them. So I guess they all suck too? If Houston beats the Eagles, they would have a winning record. St Louis has 4 wins – 3 came against Seattle, Denver, and San Fran….but none against the Eagles so that must have been a bad win too, right? The Eagles were a yard short of beating both Arizona and San Fran, on the road, and all anyone can talk about is how they haven’t beaten anybody.
