Philly’s own Suzy Kolber, also an ESPNer, has been more accurate than Jaworski with her predictions.
Memo to Jaws: You have rarely been correct about predictions in the past, and the fact that you didn’t add the caveat that the draft — 15 days away in Chicago — gives Kelly another opportunity to improve the Birds is proof positive that you have an inherent bias about Kelly. You should stick to watching film with Greg Cosell!

When Chip Kelly was hired as Eagles coach in January 2013, former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski predicted that he wouldn’t be successful in NFL with his razzle-dazzle offense.
Now Jaworski, a current ESPN analyst and former Eagles quarterback who took the team to its first Super Bowl appearance, is doubling down on his criticism and doesn’t think Kelly has improved the Eagles so far this off-season..
Jaws, speaking on ESPN affiliate 97.5 The Fanatic, told host Mike Missanelli the following:
“I don’t think they’re a better football team right now than they were when the season ended. They’re making a lot of moves projecting where this team may be, but I just don’t see this team as a better team.
“You could ask me in December and I might say ‘Yes, they’re a better football team.’ I just don’t see that right now. I’m a big believer in chemistry, and I believe football is the consummate team game. Eleven players on very single play, working together and understand how each play works, why it was called. There has been a lot of turnover on this team. It takes time to develop that chemistry that is so important, that unity that is so important.”
