Dorsey has no track record of being a successful GM but seems like he has done a fine job within the framework of the Green Bay Packers organization. Does that mean it will work beautifully here? Of course not. This could fall flatter than Katie Holmes.
What about Reid you ask? Well we all know the rhetoric. The man has won seven NFC East titles, appeared in five NFC championships along with a Super Bowl trip. Nobody doubts he’s an upgrade, but is he enough of one to give Kansas City a celebration in February?
Kiffin also cited Pendergast’s trip to the Super Bowl in 2009 as defensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals. Pendergast spent the next season with the Kansas City Chiefs, then returned to college. The highlight of Pendergast’s time at Cal might have been a loss, albeit a noble one.
In 2010, Cal held Oregon’s dynamic offense to 317 yards in a 15-13 loss. Only one other time in the past three seasons has Oregon’s offense been held under 19 points.
“I had an opportunity to talk to him here just a couple times within the process that he was going through and I want what’s best for the Philadelphia Eagles,” Reid told PFT’s Mike Tirico. “That part hasn’t changed. I want those kids there and the management to have the best possible coach that they can win and they can have success. With that, Chip was one of the people that interviewed for the job. We had an opportunity to talk and I shared just what I’m sharing with you I shared with him. If they offer that job, take it.”
Reid, who was the winningest coach in Eagles franchise history, was hired by the Kansas City Chiefs days after being let go by Philadelphia. Despite the seeming conflict of interest, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he still maintains a strong relationship with Reid.
