Broncos offensive lineman Evan Mathis blasts Chip Kelly, the man that released him

Evan Mathis once dawned an Eagles jersey, now he is a Super Bowl Champion

Evan Mathis once dawned an Eagles jersey, now he is a Super Bowl Champion

Last year at this time, Evan Mathis the former Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard was hoping to get paid by the Eagles.  That didn’t happen and it cost him his job.  Mathis stayed strong on earning a certain amount and Chip Kelly and the Eagles released him.  Now, a year later Mathis is a Super Bowl Champion.  Mathis joined the Broncos on a deal and it was huge for his career.

In an email exchange with Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, Mathis did not hold back his feelings for Chip. He really let the old Eagles coach have it.

“There were many things that Chip had done that showed me he wasn’t building a championship team,” Mathis wrote. “Two of the main issues that concerned me were: 1. A never-evolving, vanilla offense that forced our own defense to play higher than normal play counts. 2. His impatience with certain personality types even when they were blue-chip talents. The Broncos team I was on would have eaten Chip alive. I don’t think he could have handled the plethora of large personalities.”

Do you agree with Mathis’ words?
