5:26 pm
having thrown 27 touchdowns to just two interceptions. all was right in eagles nation. chip started to flex his muscles heading in the 204 year by cutting desean jackson. despite that move, eagles looked prime for a major run beginning the year nine-three but three straight losses derailed those plans and bird completed another ten-six season, although they would miss the the post season in chip's second year this past off season brought great change and new vision with chip taking over as the soul personnel decision maker. those moves coupled with his lack of, and lack of communication, inside the checks led to the six-nine record in 2015. and in the end, chip kelly would be gone, one game shy of three full season. i think it was that lack of communication with the players and with the front office that led to his demise because if you will remember final years of the andy reid another everyone went to bat for that guy because they genuinely like him. i just don't think same holds true for chip kelly.
5:27 pm
>> those early highlights, we were pretty good. >> that first year, yes, that first game. >> yes, i'm still out of breath from that game. >> thing about eagles fancies they always have hope. we have a bitter bunch but when we start again we have a renewed sense of hope. >> i don't think we have that with whatever head coach heading in to next season. >> and into the off season. >> coming up next on "eyewitness news", million-dollar power ball ticket is sold in our area. also this. i'm jamie ukiss in new york with the preparations. and final touches are underway for a philadelphia new years day tradition we will take you behind the scenes of the mummers parade. then new at 6:00 this is chip kelly saying interesting things on twitter. the that is chip kelly. what he has had to deal with from a few philly fans when we
