Three years ago, the Eagles fired Andy Reid on New Year's Eve and searched for their next head coach until owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman landed Chip Kelly on Jan. 16. This time around, Kelly was dismissed on Dec. 29, prior to the last game of the regular season, and the new search has commenced, with Lurie and Roseman once again leading the way, in conjunction with business-side president Don Smolenski. The question on the table is a simple one: Are the Eagles better off now than they were three years ago?

The last time Riley Cooper touched the football this season it glanced off his left hand and fell to the turf at MetLife Stadium and the Eagles were forced to punt. It probably was the last time he was targeted as an Eagle. If so, it was a fitting way to go out. The Eagles gambled on third down late in the game and Sam Bradford went to Cooper, who had run a post route. The ball was thrown a touch high, but the timing was off. Cooper didn't look back at his quarterback until the last moment and the ball ricocheted off his outstretched hand.

I THINK we all can agree that the Eagles' defense was really, really awful this season. If, for some inexplicable reason, you still have your doubts about that, well, go check the NFL's final defensive rankings, and that almost certainly will put you over the top. They finished 30th in yards allowed and 28th in points allowed. They were 32nd in run defense, 28th in pass defense and 26th in third-down defense. They were 25th in sacks per pass play, 31st in red-zone defense and 31st in touchdown passes allowed.

ISSUE | ENERGY N.J.'s green goals The New Jersey Senate passed a bill last month that establishes renewable-energy portfolio standards and requires a percentage of our electricity to come from Class I renewable energy. This percentage would increase every five years to 2050, with a goal of reaching 80 percent renewable. The bill, which was referred to the Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee, needs to be posted by Jan. 11 to pass the Assembly. Solar, wind, and geothermal power, microgrids, and wave technologies can be used to reach these goals.

Chip Kelly was grilling dinner Tuesday night for his family while on vacation in Hilton Head Island, S.C., when his phone buzzed again and again. "Well," he said, "something happened. " His father-in-law popped outside. "Chip Kelly just got fired by the Eagles," he said to Chip Kelly. Already, some in the strange universe that is Twitter had aimed their ire at the vacationing Kelly, a 41-year-old executive for a California start-up. His phone glowed with every tweet sent to his handle - @chipkelly - and there were hundreds, starting with four laughing and crying emojis in one tweet, delivered six minutes after the Eagles announced the more famous Kelly was fired.

In Chip Kelly's first NFL game, the Eagles scored 33 points and displayed a system and personnel that helped make them an offensive juggernaut. They scored into the 30s seven more times that season. They also reached 30 nine times in 2014, albeit with the help of non-offensive touchdowns. In 15 games this year, it's happened only three times. The regression of the offense has been on display all year, and it was evident in the Eagles' 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday.

It wasn't the cornerbacks' fault. There was plenty with which to take issue, looking at the Eagles' defensive effort in Saturday night's 38-24, playoff-hope-crushing loss to the Washington Redskins, but the main thing many observers worried about going into the game didn't happen. As was feared, Byron Maxwell, the Eagles' $63 million corner, couldn't play with a sprain in his SC joint, where the collarbone connects to the sternum. E.J. Biggers took Maxwell's place in the base defense, with Biggers moving inside in nickel and dime packages and Jaylen Watkins coming in on the outside.

Just as he was winning back the fans, DeMarco Murray's season of frustration was summed up in one botched pitch. One series after igniting the crowd by scoring his first touchdown since Nov. 8, Murray saw the ball and eventually the NFC East slip through his hands during Saturday's 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. That clinched the NFC East for the Redskins (8-7), while the Eagles (6-9) will have plenty of time to answer the many offseason questions.

Hope vanished in Philadelphia on Saturday night when DeMarco Murray fumbled a pitch from Sam Bradford and watched the Washington Redskins return the turnover for a touchdown. It was a cruel and fitting way for the Eagles to accept playoff elimination. Two key pieces of Chip Kelly's offseason overhaul took part in a play that permanently swung momentum in a 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. The loss ended any chance the Eagles had to make the postseason.

When the Eagles have the ball When the Eagles and Redskins met in Week 4, Sam Bradford threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns - and Bradford is playing better now than he was then. That should be an encouraging sign for the Eagles, who will have the opportunity to move the ball against Washington. The Redskins allow 240.2 passing yards per game, but the 7.7 yards per attempt is one of the worst averages in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have thrown for 26 touchdowns and only nine interceptions against Washington, plus 11 passes of 40-plus yards.
