In a scene that won't be repeated, the man in charge of the Eagles' player-personnel decisions huddled with some media members at Lucas Oil Stadium during last year's NFL scouting combine and spoke at length of his affection for and commitment to the team's No. 1 quarterback. Howie Roseman went on and on about Nick Foles that day, about an up-and-coming quarterback whom the Eagles had an obligation to support, and things certainly have changed since then. No Eagles representative is scheduled to speak at next week's combine.

I THINK WE ALL can agree that Chip Kelly is a pretty good football coach. He proved that at the University of Oregon and has proved it again in his first 2 years with the Eagles, resuscitating a four-win team and racking up back-to-back 10-6 seasons. What we don't yet know, but are about to find out, is what kind of talent evaluator Kelly is. Many people assume that a good coach also is a good judge of football flesh. But the two don't necessarily go hand in hand. They're two very different jobs, two very different talents.

It's really an honor and I'm sure all of you shared my excitement when The Inquirer announced last week I had been promoted to Senior Executive Columnist for Sports Content. There's nothing like a new title to make a guy feel important, and I'd also like to congratulate colleagues Bob Brookover, the new Vice President for Sports Columnizing, and Mike Sielski, who steps into the role of Director of Sports Opinion/Columns. There's no doubt in mind that we will work together seamlessly to help the department achieve its goals with the structure now in place.

When Ryan Grigson left the Eagles in 2012 to become general manager of the Indianapolis Colts, his departure created a hole at the top of the Eagles scouting department that general manager Howie Roseman opted not to fill. "We're going to go with the people we have," Roseman said at the time. "Through this process when Ryan left, we kind of went with the people we had here, and we added some people that we feel really good about, and we like the dynamic as it's currently set, and we're going to go with it. " What Roseman liked best about the new dynamic was that he had finally consolidated total control over both the scouting and the football administration departments.

Chip Kelly spent 26 days searching for a personnel executive before promoting Ed Marynowitz, who was in the building all along. The Eagles named Marynowitz vice president of player personnel on Thursday, putting the 30-year-old Media native into the chief player evaluation role that opened after the front office shake-up in the week after the season ended. Marynowitz received a three-year contract. "Ed is someone who has really impressed me going back to my interview process with the Eagles two years ago," Kelly said in a statement.

Chip Kelly got his man - after Brian Gaine interviewed and decided to stay with the Texans, after Scott Fitterer interviewed and decided to stay with the Seahawks, after Chris Ballard, Jon Robinson, Eliot Wolf, Brian Gutenkunst, and Joe Hortiz declined to interview with the Eagles or their teams declined, and after Chris Polian and Chris Grier interviewed before eventual hire Ed Marynowitz had. And those were only the candidates to be Kelly's second-in-personnel-command...

PHOENIX - Given the circumstances, this was probably the option that made the most sense all along. The Eagles needed someone to run personnel for Chip Kelly who knew what Kelly wanted - the coach has exacting player specifications. They needed someone who would not chafe at being subordinate to Kelly, and someone who would be able to forge a working relationship with demoted general manager Howie Roseman, who is still hashing out contracts and minding the salary cap. Ed Marynowitz, named vice president of player personnel yesterday, fit all those criteria.

The official Chip Kelly offseason scoreboard shows that his actions hold a significant lead over his words and, in all likelihood, the verbal game won't even attempt a comeback until late March. In typical fashion, the big play from the Eagles head coach came fast and furious. When Howie Roseman wielded his general manager power by firing vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble immediately after the season ended, Kelly's counterpunch resulted in a bloody TKO. Owner Jeffrey Lurie stripped Roseman of all his personnel duties, making it clear that the head coach ruled the decision-making kingdom at One NovaCare Way. That was by far the loudest and most meaningful action by Kelly since the Eagles played their last game of 2014 and he has not spoken a single public word about it. Given the way things work in the silent society shared by so many NFL teams and coaches, it's possible - even probable - that Kelly will not answer any questions about the Eagles' internal power struggle until the March owners meetings in Arizona.

MOBILE, Ala. - In January 2010, Howie Roseman entered Senior Bowl week as the Eagles' newly minted general manager, if not yet in name. An official announcement came days later, but the ubiquitous Roseman already had begun the duties of the only job he has ever wanted. He huddled with his personnel staff and scouted practices, he organized meetings with draft prospects, and he met with agents of both Eagles players and prospective free-agent targets. He couldn't yet speak publicly, but he introduced himself to an Eagles reporter and offered to give background information on a few seniors.

FAIRHOPE, Ala. - Eagles coach Chip Kelly did not stop to talk to reporters after yesterday afternoon's South team practice at Fairhope High, but he did toss a few quips over his shoulder as he departed. Asked about his plans for filling the personnel-chief job the team announced when Kelly took control of that operation on Jan 2, Kelly said his immediate plan was "to go back to my hotel and take a shower. " Asked about a timeframe, Kelly said his shower should take about 5 minutes.
