I woke up today feeling particularly annoyed with the Philadelphia Eagles and their glacially slow, seemingly unfocused search for a new head coach. So rather than sharing the division's top links as per usual, I jumped right into a column criticizing the Eagles for their approach. 

Minutes after that column was published, word emerged that the Eagles had won the prize they'd been chasing the whole time, with Oregon head coach and offensive innovator Chip Kelly filling the vacancy left by Andy Reid

I've shared my initial thoughts on the Kelly hiring, but allow me to use today's delayed links post to share additional views and details regarding the story of the day in the NFL.
