The Philadelphia Eagles head into 2024 with one of the best rosters and Super Bowl aspirations but it took some time to get here.

Before the Eagles had Nick Sirianni and Doug Pederson as the head coaches for the organization, they had Chip Kelly as the lead man from 2013-2015.

Despite going 26-21 across three seasons, the culture and the vibes in Philly were toxic. Former Eagles DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy totally ripped Kelly on their own podcast called "25/10 Show".

Eagles News: LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson Rip Into Chip Kelly

When Kelly took over the Eagles, Jackson and McCoy were two main producers on the offensive side of the ball but he never seemed to connect with his players.

On the podcast, Jackson talked about Kelly never giving him the benefit of the doubt.

He said, "Bro you really released me off of allegations. And that was a coward a-- move. I was never able to get the benefit of the doubt that I deserve bro. And it was all off of Chip Kelly."

Jackson alluded to how the Eagles released him in 2014, just two years after he received a five-year, $51 million extension. In a report, the Eagles were concerned about Jackson's off-field activities and his reputed ties to Los Angeles street gang members.

After his release, Jackson dropped a quote saying he 'never' was a part of any gang. This highlights his statement saying that Kelly didn't really trust him.

As for McCoy, he believes that Kelly traded him away just to get him off the team. He said, "You didn't send me to Buffalo because you thought that was the best move for your team. You sent me there to die."

In 2015, Philadelphia traded McCoy to the Bills in exchange for LB Kiko Alonso. At that point of his career, the Pittsburgh product had the NFL's third-most rushing yards (6,792) and fourth-most rushing touchdowns (44) since being drafted in the second round in 2009.

You would think that a player productive like McCoy would have a spot on the roster but that wasn't the case.

Jackson also added that Kelly made former QB Michael Vick cry. He asked McCoy, "Do you remember that time he made Michael Vick cry?"

McCoy responded, " I remember him [Vick] saying I cried more dealing with Chip Kelly and the Eagles than I did in prison."

Finding out all these details almost a decade later just shows why things didn't work out for Kelly in Philly. He never really understood his players and didn't take the time to get to know them on a personal level. It just sounded like he wanted to move off players that he didn't like, even fan favorites in Jackson and McCoy.
