In this week's Monday Morning Quarterback, Peter King writes about the only NFL game played on Sunday, plus thoughts on the Hall of Fame voting and the rest of the Super Bowl week experience.

Chip Kelly Hired By Eagles, Unless He Is Not

Per Chris Mortensen, Chip Kelly is the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Jay Glazer and Ian Rapoport are both reporting the same thing, so it might actually be true. Until, you know, he backs out of the job in two days after Phil Knight unloads his dump truck in front of Kelly's house again or something.

Reports: Andy Reid To Be Fired

Multiple reports out of Philadelphia indicate Andy Reid will be fired as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, with it likely becoming official Monday. Reid was the NFL's longest-tenured head coach, having joined the Eagles before the 1999 season. He's reportedly indicated he'd like to coach in 2013, and even without a Super Bowl ring he'll probably be a hot name around the league as other vacancies come open.
