Kelly is widely considered a pretty bright offensive mind. Also widely assumed he would alter his scheme pretty heavily. The main thing about his offense is tempo. Billicheat had a lot of respect.

100% on target.

he's innovative, adaptable, and incredibly smart.

the tempo and aggressiveness is the biggest draw, though. and not just on offense, either. the tempo is there for the whole team as is the endurance level.

coach fast.

play fast.

outlast.

Have there been any talks of Keeping Rivera as a DC here as a step down in the organization? Would he take that if offered I wonder, since his beginning record as a HC isn't steller.

This truism has been illustrated by the Patriots, who went into the offseason figuring that their dink-and-dunk spread offense had run its course. They knew they needed to stay ahead of the NFL, so they spent time with Oregon coach Chip Kelly in an effort to understand how he runs his no-huddle run game. They invested additional time in becoming more physical with their line and, naturally, they added more tight ends.

BB reached out to Chip in the offseason.

That pretty much never happens.

If he stays here, it'll be as head coach. If he goes back to being a DC, it'll be with another team.

I just don't believe in putting a guy in a position, because he said would adjust to the NFL. It's like electing someone for president based on their promises, when everything they did prior to the election was contrary. Who's fault is it then when this person fails to do what he said? People keep bringing up Belichick, how he borrowed Oregon's tempo on offense. The Patriots have an established, future HOF QB playing for them. Cam is still developing. He's still working on pocket presence and anticipation. Bringing in a college offense will set him back. Besides, it's not like the Patriots now run the full Oregon offense. They just infused some elements into their overall offense. If we hire Kelly, we are bringing the Oregon offense to Carolina, and we saw what Stanford's defense did to that vaunted offense.

Until someone can give me evidence of Kelly adjusting to a pro style offense, give me a youtube clip of that offense running something other than the read option, I don't want to hear about his false promises of adjusting his system. If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, then it's an Oregon duck.

If, after going to the trouble of hiring a consultant to make sure we hired the right GM, we then cut that GM's legs out from under him by hiring a head coach without him having any say in the hiring, I would unapologetically call this franchise the stupidest organization in the NFL.

Sounds like JR to me. Let's hope it doesn't go down like that. GOD!

How could they be "hearing" anything when we don't even have a GM?

I just don't want an Oregon offense here. We obviously see what Cam can do when we limit the read option college bullcrap. When we run the ball and use play action (traditional) Cam is a beast and we put up points. I'm afraid that Chip would bring his scheme here and we would have a Chud type problem again...

Chip knows how to win games and championships. He can adapt for the rest.

Yes, but no one knows what a non read option Kelly offense would be.....and if it would even work. That is his bread and butter and works great in college. I think he has a higher bust rate at the NFL level than many.....a leap of faith he can do what so many can't. At least Harbaugh didn't come to the NFL and attempted to reinvent his offensive approach.
