Chip Kelly discussion

I don't think you bring in a guy who runs a top notch College offense (which is taboo around here at the moment) and then expect him to seamlessly transform his style to a pro style and be just as good at it.

He's definitely a guy that has a strong mind, is constantly organized, and knows how to work players & keep them disciplined... but doing that with 19 & 20 year olds is completely different from fully grown men.

I personally think he'd be good, as long as he runs a pro system, yet keeps his creative mindset. Can't run his Oregon offense here.

Not no, but Hell No.

His success has been based almost totally on a tweaked version of the read option offense that will never work at the NFL level. Never. How will he adjust? Who knows?

You guys love the read option so much??? LOL

Strike one.

He seems almost completely indifferent to what occurs on the defensive side of the ball, so he will have to be coupled with a top defensive guy. Even as we speak, his always suspect defense is getting gashed by USC...This is Chip Kelly's BEST defense at Oregon. They are 35th in the FBS....and this after playing a weak schedule.

Strike two.

The guy has no NFL experience. Zero. NADA. NONE. ZILTCHERINO.

Not as a Head Coach, assistant, player or even ball boy.

Basically you are crossing your fingers and hoping Chip Kelly is Jimmy Johnson. I believe Jimmy Johnson is the only college head coach to move to the NFL and win a Superbowl with no NFL experience. And Johnson went to Dallas after appearing in two national championship games (winning one), in 5 years at Miami. All while running a sophisticated Pro-style offense.

Strike three.

This, this and this.

Has the level of desperation officially reached critical mass to the point there's a coaching dart board and posters are just picking off names a couple times a week?

I'm all aboard the Chip Kelly bandwagon. Found an interesting article that made the case for me. Chip Kelly and the Panthers could revolutionize the NFL

The 62 they put on the Trojans was impressive,

The 51 they gave up was not.

I have reservations as to the long term success Kelly might enjoy in the NFL.

I think what he has done at Oregon is nothing more than incredible. High powered offense and good mind. Then I am reminded of Chudz. The guy is an offensive wiz. Crappy at game time adjustments but an offensive wiz none the less. I like the idea that he uses mathematical statistics to make a decision. College is not the NFL. You give a team a short field they are going to exploit it. Next thing you know you are down 14 points and become one dimensional. In college you can get away with being down 2 or 3 scores and come back. Not so true in the NFL. Each position is filled with those college stars. You aren't playing 3 or 4 good guys you are playing 11 of them.

I will support the team no matter who they hire but I hope Kelly isn't our 1st choice.
