I
f Oregon wins the BCS title this year — they are my pick to do so, though they have suffered a number of tough injuries on defense — I'm certain that Chip Kelly will be coaching next season in the NFL. Those who know Kelly well say it's "inevitable,"and his name, along with his friend Jon Gruden's, will be at the top of nearly every NFL coaching search. But despite all his success, there are those who still like to label his offense a gimmick, or, more practically, wonder if it's possible to run a spread offense in the NFL, given the beating a quarterback might endure.
This misunderstands Kelly's attack. "I look for a quarterback who can run and not a running back who can throw. I want a quarterback who can beat you with his arm," Kelly explained at a coaches clinic in the spring of 2011, emphatically adding, "We are not a The Golden Calf of Bristol type of quarterback team. I am not going to run my quarterback 20 times on power runs."


*snip*


Kelly explained that he merely needs a quarterback who, if the defense "forces" him to run, "can do it effectively." Although this rules out some of the NFL's best quarterbacks — from Peyton Manning to Tom Brady — it doesn't mean that his offense requires Cam Newton or RG3. Every year, the high school and college ranks are producing more and more quarterbacks who aren't utterly devoid of athleticism.4
Time will undoubtedly tell whether Kelly's offense can work in the NFL, but my vote is that it will. It would require Kelly finding the right players, but a Chip Kelly–coached NFL team would win for the same reasons that the Chip Kelly–coached college team wins. Behind the speed, the spread, the Daft Punk helmets, and the flashy uniforms, Oregon ultimately wins with old-fashioned, fundamental, run-it-up-the-gut football. I think everyone, even fans of the spread offense, can appreciate that.

Not been a fan of him coming here, but lately I've began to like the idea. I think Kelly is smart enough to taylor an NFL style offense. We may have the most attractive QB in his eyes. Cam would allow him to still have SOME of his college plays while still being able to run pro sets. As long as he has little to do with the D i'd be cool with him.

Hopefully Chip wont end up like Nick Saban and will be able to bring his effective scheme and recruiting abilities to Carolina. If he comes here we can expect all blue uniforms!! Unfortunately the all blacks will become unlucky for this franchise if we lose like we did against Denver.

I don't know how many times I gotta say it, Chip Kelly for head coach.

The man WILL have success at the professional level.

Those guys didn't have something that Chip would have. Cam Newton.

Chip and Cam would revolutionize the league.

Rivera has one of the best athlete/QB's of all time right now and has no idea how to maximize his potential.

The more I read about him the more I like him. I just want to see what he does against a David Shaw Stanford football team this Saturday.

If you can win games in the PAC-10, you have what it takes to be an NFL coach?
