Dallas Cowboys: Eagles Hire Chip Kelly, Can Jerry Jones Keep Up?
Chip Kelly has altered the NFC East race, not just for the Philadelphia Eagles who just hired him, but for the Dallas Cowboys as well. Just a few days ago it seemed Kelly had eschewed the pro game for his gig in Oregon. And because of that, it seemed probable that Dallas would hire within to fill their offensive coordinator position. Bill Callahan and Wade Wilson were both mentioned in rampant speculation.
But forget that noise. With Kelly in Philadelphia and RGIII in D.C., Jerry Jones can't possibly sell his fanbase on more Garrett/Callahan.
Kelly brings a high-octane offense that Dallas fans already covet and that the Cowboys offense must keep up with this fall.
Jones trying to sell his fans on Callahan and Garrett would be like your spouse telling you to buy something sensible while your neighbor is across the street revving the Ferrari he just bought. Screw sensible, we need a Lamborghini!
Unless Jones has lost his marketing touch, he will realize that 72-year-old Monte Kiffin vs. Kelly in Philly and RGIII in D.C. won't sell by itself.
Valley Ranch will need some fresh horsepower if Jones is going to sell those tickets, not to mention win some games.
Keep in mind, Jerry broke the bank in last years free-agent market. Dallas is over the cap for 2013, so the cavalry won't be arriving via free agency.
It will need to come from a brilliant offensive coordinator and a brilliant draft that lands much-needed help for both lines.
Without all of the above, every NFL prognosticator worth his hairpiece will be picking Dallas to finish dead last in the NFC race.
The checkered flag has already been waved, Jerry. It's time to trade in the Pinto.
