And now brace yourselves as the Eagles unis enter the 21st century with 27 variations.But really, never underestimate the power of a major market and the very high profile NFC East.Had Lurie opted out and the Eagles were on the market when Haslam was shopping, it might have been no different. Had Banner remained a boat anchor at the Race Street Pier, it may have made not a bit of difference to Kelly.Didn't want Kelly either, though seeing the Niners demolish the Packers may give me pause.And agree. Haslam is just a guy with an anchor. But if he was just a guy in Philadelphia, even with an anchor, he may have gotten his wish.It can be more than just the personalities involved.

I've been drinking Dogfish since about 4:00.With that out of the way, I'll get to my brilliant take.I have a new respect for Haslam that I didn't have before this Kelly hire. Since we're all dropping our speculation, here's mine. Kelly was Haslams's "guy". Hands down. Haslam had a plan for how much he was willing to give within his business plan to get Kelly. This offer was offered to Kelly and there was some sort of verbal with regard to the proposal. Once Kelly pulled a Kelly and went all emo, Haslam pulled the offer and left town. Without his "guy". On purpose.I think Haslam could have continued to go after Kelly and finally landed his "guy" yet he chose not to. He offered what he was willing to offer within the business plan. Kelly is Kelly. Haslam moved on. The Eagles caved.
