Full Version: Dawk to help Kelly?
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
Dawkins was having an event at Chickie & Petes and Chip Kelly just happened to show up. He was invited to say a few words...

"The spirit that Brian Dawkins played with is what the Philadelphia Eagles are all about... I'm here to support Brian, one of the all time great Eagles and I'm excited to have him as part of the program and gonna to lean on him a lot to be able to tell our young guys how the game is played because he played the game the way it is supposed to be played."

"We're going to play like that guy played," Kelly said.

Missanelli asked Dawk whether Chip might have tipped anything off with that statement as far as him joining the staff?

"He didn't tip anything off," Dawkins said. "It was a surprise for him to say it in that way and that's something we can talk about at some other point. As far as that is concerned, that's something I've always said I'm open to as far as doing whatever I could to help."

He was also asked whether he'd accept an invite to go to training camp to work with the young guys on the team?

"We'd have to talk details about ways I could help without being too far away from family for too long."
Here ...

yea Mike Miss has talked quite a bit about conversations he has had with Dawk on this subject. he is convinced that dawk has no interest in NFL coaching right now because he is coaching his son's team and he loves doing that. as the article points out any help he gave would be in the form of stopping in occasionally, motivational type stuff, etc...

kelly should be careful with how much dawk he adds to the mix. Dawk would be a powerful figure in the locker room at a time when young guys are being asked to trust a young coaching staff. Dawk isnt the type to try and undermine coaches so i dont mean that, but its important that the new staff establish that their voices alone should be what the players have in their head
