On Chip/Howie And Speculation
The decision to part ways with Tom Gamble this week has led many to understandably wonder what’s next. Speculation about further fallout from the Gamble move was put into overdrive when Pro Football Talk offered the following:

A likely conclusion to jump to is that either Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman are on their way out. Our understanding is that there is a move forthcoming, but it does not involve the departure of either Kelly or Roseman. Logic suggests that it will be front-office related. Les Bowen offers this theory:
I expect some sort of move that’d be a nod toward Chip, to counterbalance Gamble firing. Dunno what that might be. But lotsa folks think so

That makes some sense. More as it becomes available.
