Really? This headline got greenlit?

I always knew the reason the Eagles sucked lately was the locker room seating chart. Glad that got taken care of right away.

It is the same problem as the Titanic had with those deck chairs.

Makes sense. If you have a group of younger players on one side of the locker room and a group of veterans on the otherside, it makes sense to mix the two together.

I don't see a problem with this to be honest.  Players at the NFL level be down with ANYTHING that pushes them to be a more effective team.  Even if that means seating charts.  Kelly has his reasons.

I was kind of hoping his first real "organizational change" was to bring the Nike U flavor to Philadelphia and design 16 different uniforms to be worn throughout the regular season.

I suppose when the Eagles start playing better than a NCAA team, they will get treated better than an NCAA team?

John Harbaugh did the same thing when he came to the Ravens.  He moved the lockers around to move disruptive people (like Chris McAlister) away from certain other players.  Don't let the disruptive element group up.

That being said, this type of stuff happens outside of football as well.  Companies rearrange cubicles or move certain loud people to a different area of the office.  I'm not sure why this is terribly upsetting to someone unless they are a freelancer / construction worker / self-employed / etc.

In a way, I can't blame them. I think adding multiple uniform designs has proven to bilk fans into buying more jerseys. Plus, a team like Oregon actually uses their swag as part of their recruiting.

I used to do the seating charts.  Hot chicks and funny people around me and chatty busybodies far away.  Supremely scientific.

More styles of uniforms means more merchandising, more press coverage, more attention.  Plus, the potential recruits are more inclined to play for a school where they think they 'look' cool or whose uniforms make them look more jacked or whose uniforms have a material that makes it easier to play in.  For those hot september games, you'd rather be playing in those moisture-wicking uniforms than the cotton ones.  If it is compression material that makes you look more ripped, even better.

This is the same Philadelphia Eagles team that consistently shiats the bed and plays below the talent level on their roster, yes? I would imagine the "lots of changes" approach to be in order.

Not really.  They were pretty good through the McNabb years and while then never won the Super Bowl I'm not sure an objective observer would have really picked them as the best team in the NFL either.   They were overhyped with Vick but that's because for some reason ESPN seems to overrate Vick every year. He has all the same problems with injuries and turnovers he had in Atlanta without the same speed, so it's hard to see why.  They probably underperformed some in 2011 and definitely did in 2012 but the 2011 team was too dependent on the big play to beat good playoff teams and the 2012 team lost almost the entire O Line before it imploded so it was never going to make the playoffs either way.

Non-story.  Every single NFL team has some type of organizational strategy for their locker room.  Some break down by position, some by offense/defense and specialists, some by veteran and rookie, some by uniform number.

What's the issue?

Just make sure the connection with the HGH has an easy time getting to the defensive linesmen, Chipster.

Hard to take a grown man seriously with a nickname like "Chip"

Will Skippy and Butch be helping with the offense. Perhaps Junior and Buddy will work with the special teams.

What do you need a citation for?  You're under the impression that people just walk in and grab a locker each day?  I suppose that might take place on some teams, but would be shocked to find out that it did at all.

There was a story last year around this time where Chuck Pagano had broken up the old cliques in the Colts locker room, and reassigned lockers so that rookies and vets would be more mixed together.  There was mention in that story too about a rookie defensive lineman getting Peyton Manning's old locker.

My freaking high school football team had an offensive and defensive side of the locker room, you really think there's no method to the organization of an NFL locker room?

You're right, that's pretty dumb.

I don't think the farker meant that players do their own laundry and bring their own stuff to home and away games, but to suggest that the players on a team should just self-organize their space ignores the responsibility of a coach.

Why have a coach if he/she can't organize the goddamn locker room? It's a big part of how a team interacts and evolves through wins and losses.

I find Chip Kelly to be a massive d-bag. His attitude is douchy, his fat run-waddle is douchy, his visors are douchy.

But I do think he is an offensive mastermind, And I think that the Iggles are going to be better pretty quickly.

Also, fark the Ducks.
 
2013-03-29 10:22:31 PM  
Rumor has it the Ravens thought Harbaugh was silly with his banners and seating charts and 'its about the team' speeches. For about half a year. Then they were winning with a rookie QB and they bought in.

And ask San Fran players what they thought about Jim and his hysterics. Not to mention benching a starting QB with a near NFC championship win under his belt. A new style, new offense and changed D.

Bottom line is - change begets change. If the team wins the players will buy in and change their style to fit the push. If they don't, they won't, and the change will be in the front office again.
