The Success of Chip Kelly. The New Old School

120 posts in this topic

It probably wouldn't work in the NFL. But as someone else said, Chip Kelly is smart enough to realize this. He would have to incorporate some of what he does at Oregon into a NFL offense. I believe he can do this.

Kelly's offense (unlike Chud's) runs the ball with his RBs very effectively...and they aren't gimmicky runs. They are well blocked runs. If it came down to another coordinator or Chip Kelly then I'd take Kelly. HC experience matters...especially with this QB.

I dont know much about him other than a few articles posted here. Would Kelly take an OC position or straight to HC, no questions asked?

I don't think he comes to the NFL as an OC. He's a pretty hot item ATM. He'll get a HC job off jump street.

I am not a fan of the option based offense.

I would rather have a NE, NO, or GB type passing attack.

The best person for that would be Kevin Summlin. He has made all his QB's look like All Universe

With that said, id rather have Kelly than Rivera.

Recently jumped on the Kelly bandwagon (watched the last Oregon game and realized that the jet sweeps and read options are really the only differences between his offense and an NFL offense). He runs a lot of really basic plays that you'd see in ANY offense that has a shotgun package. Also some singleback.

Look at it this way. Cam's playcalling at Auburn is VERY similar to what Kelly does now. Just saying, is all. Cam could pick that poo up quick. And I think Kelly would allow him to actually use ALL of his abilities rather than just one or the other. Also, our runningbacks would FINALLY get a fuging workout on game days.

Solid post. People will slowly realize he's the perfect fit.

Oh, and speed-lovers....guys like Joe Adams, Gettis, Smitty, Armanti, Pilares, Williams, Stew, Cam.....they would have the ball in their hands often and on any given play. And the utilization of a TE in Kelly's system is BIG (Colt Lyeria, the Ducks TE, has 17 catches for 266 yards with a 48 yard long and 6 TDs. 3rd leading receiver on the team right now...and that's with rotating in 3 or 4 OTHER TEs throughout the season)...and we have one of the best receiving TEs in the league.

Just saying....

Personally I don't care where they come from if the can get the job done, I'm just very skeptical about college coaches using us as their test run. If they've coached in the NFL before I feel better about it, but to me Kelly looks to be the proto-typical college coach who runs a gimmick offense that just won't succeed at the NFL level.

I'm borderline on Kelly to be honest.

Some of the pros:

Play Calling Speed would give D's fits.

NFL coaches have high respect for him (Billicheat for one)

He is incredibly intelligent, so one could assume he can adapt.

Cons:

Spread

No NFL experience
