10 Fictional Characters Coach Chip Kelly Can Look To For Inspiration

As the NFL watches Kelly go further out on a limb, here are 10 people he can find inspiration from.

1. Ray Kinsella (Field of Dreams)

By losing his top running back, leading wide receiver, starting quarterback, best cornerback, and the teams 2nd all-time sack leader Chip Kelly performed the NFL equivalent of plowing over his corn field. Eagles fans can only hope the voice in Chip's head is successful as the one in Kevin Costner's corn field.

2. Chazz Reinhold (Wedding Crashers)

In lieu of Kelly's recent roster moves, Owen Wilson's quote about Chazz could be easily applied to Kelly. "...I went with Chazz, who you forgot to tell me is totally insane. He also might be a genius..."

3. Mike McDermott (Rounders)

McDermott risked it all in the face of an intimidating lone shark and a ridiculous Russian accent by John Malkovich. By bringing in QB Sam Bradford Kelly is putting his NFL career on the line while staring down a crazed Philly fan base and media.

4. Sonny Weaver Jr. (Draft Day)

After such a wild free agency and the prospect of Kelly's former QB Marcus Mariota still looming the Eagles' draft may provide even more fireworks.

5. Lt. Daniel Kaffee (A Few Good Men)

Nobody put their professional career on the line quite as dramatically as Lt Kaffee. Here's hoping Chip gets similar results.

6. Coach Irv (Cool Runnings)

Coach Irv was viewed as a laughing stock amongst his peers until they saw his finished product. Maybe Kelly should have his team break the huddle with a "Cool Runnings" cheer.

7. Benjamin Gates (National Treasure)

Stealing the Declaration of Independence and paying BIG money for two running backs over the age of 26 is basically the same thing.....

8. Jerry Maguire (Jerry Maguire)

Publicly Chip Kelly appears as confident as ever. Privately he may be asking himself, "who's coming with me?"

9. The Architect (Matrix Reloaded

Not so much someone for Chip Kelly to look to, but his recent press conference certainly had everyone's head spinning afterwards.

10. Benjamin Mee (We Bought A Zoo)

Matt Damon shows up once again, shelling out for a decrepit zoo. While certainly not decrepit Kelly handed over a large sum of money to cornerback Byron Maxwell, which has some NFL insiders scratching their heads the same way as Thomas Haden Church did in We Bought A Zoo.
