NFL Network analyst Michael Lombardi broke down the expected coaching changes in Philadelphia and San Diego on NFL Gameday. One name was at the top of both lists: Chip Kelly
"He's the prettiest girl in the school," Lombardi said. "Everyone is going after Chip Kelly because of what he brings uniquely offensively."
NFL teams with a vacancy are expected to make a heavy push for the University of Oregon coach. Many think this is the year Kelly will make the jump to the NFL.
If the Eagles can't get Kelly, Lombardi said Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski could be a sleeper selection.
"It'll be an offensive coach," Lombardi said.
The Eagles have a decision to make at the quarterback position. Do they stick with Michael Vick or turn things over to the rookie Nick Foles.
The Chargers have their quarterback in Philip Rivers. He just needs to play better. He could use some better teammates, also. General manager. A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner are expected to share the same fate.
"It's going to have to be somebody who understands developing Philip Rivers," Lombardi said.
