Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is at it once again. This time, it involves bringing Tim Tebow back to the NFL.

The question we now all have is, why?
Why, oh why Chip Kelly? We understand you view yourself as this mad scientist of an NFL boss. We grasp this concept that while everybody else zigs, you like to zag.
However, this is has gone past the point of insanity.
According to Jay Glazer at Fox Sports, it is the Philadelphia Eagles intention to bring in Tim Tebow and sign him on Monday as the team begins their offseason program.
Tebow, of course, hasn’t played quarterback in the NFL since the 2011 season when he started 11 games for the Denver Broncos. He threw for 1,729 yards and 12 touchdowns to just six interceptions. He also ran for 660 yards and six touchdowns.
This was the height of his professional career, as he led his team past the Pittsburgh Steelers during Wild Card weekend.
Playing sparingly for the New York Jets in 2012, and being signed by the New England Patriots during the preseason of 2013, was the closest he’s been to the field since.
What’s interesting about this move will certainly be Kelly’s perception growing stranger.

Personally, I loved the LeSean McCoy for Kiko Alonso deal. He rid himself of a guy in McCoy who has a ton of mileage on him, and brought back a tremendous defensive quarterback for years to come.
Since then, however, Kelly has brought in one injury prone guy after another. Sam Bradford, DeMarco Murray, and even Walter Thurmond.
Now, Tebow puts the icing on the cake.
How will Philadelphia fans respond to this sparkling news?
