The Best Twitter Reactions to Chip Kelly’s Ouster
As you might expect, Philadelphia Twitter exploded Tuesday night after news of Chip Kelly‘s “release” made the rounds. There was some negative reaction from fans who thought the third-year coach, who famously blew up the roster over the off-season — deserved one more year — but mostly, the mood was jubilant. (Also, check out how players have reacted to the news at Birds 24/7.)

It's one thing to be intelligent. Smart people know how to use their intelligence. Chip never adjusted to the NFL.

@phillymag IMO, a year too soon. You are already looking at another year of a new coach putting in his scheme and getting "his guys"

If Lurie really wants to win everybody over, he should take this opportunity to also announce a return to the Kelly green jerseys.

DeSean Jackson is having a good month. He got his revenge in time enough to watch Chip be fired.

I wonder how well Four Loko fits into Chip Kelly's famed nutritional programs.
