    Re: Kirby Smart Reportedly Interviewing With Philadelphia Eagles

    I liked Kelly's DC at Oregon, Nick Alliotti. With a slower pace offense, I think Alliotti would have a pretty solid defense.

    Kirby Smart Reportedly Interviewing With Philadelphia Eagles

    Well good morning! I guess it just depends on what Kirby wants to do. There are no more superstar defensive coordinators in the NFL anymore (Monte Kiffin, Dick LeBeau, Jim Johnson, Buddy Ryan, etc). The way the rules are set up now to favor offenses and "player safety". (side note: I always take thus into account when looking at the records that players like Drew Brees and Calvin Johnson have broken. Would not happen in the NFL of the 80s and 90s).

    So as it has been stated, this might be a good experience for Coach Smart, but I can't imagine this raising his celebrity any more than it already is

    To me this comes down to good experience (interviewing) and hopefully a raise. Smart and Saban deserve a raise anyway, so now is a good time to ask for one, right? I don't see this as being a good career move though, what Chip Kelly DCs have become hot commodities?

    I think this would represent a poor move on Chip Kelly's part too. IMO, as a college guy going to the NFL, you'd be wise to surround yourself with NFL guys...

    Oregon ranked 47 in yards per game given up this year. I understand that Chip's offenses put the defense on the field more than a ball controlled style offense but if you think back to his last 3 defenses, they have all performed rather well in a points happy PAC12 league!

    I think this is something Smart should definitely consider. I would hate to lose him but KS has to do what is best for his family and his career.

    I guess he is going to have to leave eventually, as stated earlier in this thread. Interesting that if he goes that he could end up coaching Dee there.

    The difference in the weather between T-Town and Philly would be a dealbreaker for me.

    I'd love for him to stay forever, but that's not reality. He's done a great job for Bama and I wish him luck in whatever he decides to do.

    AJC said he took the job. It is the AJC though TFWIW.

    And never mind.

    On Kirby Smart-to-Eagles: They are interested in him & other college DCs. They doubt he would leave Bama. Nothing has happened at this point

    Now if Eskin had said Chip Kelly was interviewing Dom Capers so as to get a DC who "leads" a point-a-minute defense to go with Kelly's point-a-minute offense - and that Capers was bringing A.J. (The Great White Hoax) Hawk with him to Philly as a package deal - and that Kirby Smart were interviewing in Green Bay as Capers' replacement and telling the Packers to draft Jesse Williams high this year...I might give it some cred (and a clink or two of a champagne glass).

    I'm guessing Jesse would go back to WDE beside BJ Raji at NT?
