Here's one thing I'm struggling with about Kelly's system...he is known for running very fast, intense practices. But instead of practicing in Oregon or in an indoor facility, he would be doing it outdoors in Spartanburg and Charlotte. And the players won't be 18 to 22, they'll be 24 to 34 year old men. NFL players are stronger and more bulked up than college kids. Are they going to be able to run that system? And if not, what does Kelly then bring to the table that other coaches don't.

I'm not anti-Kelly, but color me less than completely sold that he'll translate to the pros.

I'm not anti-Kelly, but color me less than completely sold that he'll translate to the pros.

Two campers come upon an angry bear. The first says, "I'm glad I wore my running shoes." The second says, "you can't outrun the bear." The first says, "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you."

point is...he doesn't have to have the guys he coaches at the pros run as fast as they do in college or for as long. he just has to get their endurance up to outlast the guys they face every week.

his won't be the first hurry up/no huddle offense in the league. other teams have done it for years. the broncos (in denver with thin air) and the pats are doing it.

he'll adjust to what they can do, they'll adjust to what he wants to do.

anyway....i think that the players will be more able to work at that fast pace than what you realize. some will be weeded out, bit these are professionals. they'll be able to get with the program. if they can't do we really need them around?

because of the NFL's practice rules, Kelly would probably have to tone it down quite a bit

i don't think he will. not only is he known for the pace of his practices, he's also known for having shorter practices.

Other programs pride themselves on tempo, but Gruden said he had never seen an operation that was both this fast and this refined. Oregon’s practices last two hours, an hour less than a typical college practice, and there is so little time between plays that coaches must do their teaching with only a few words or wait until the film room. Kelly said that practice had become so sophisticated and fluid that getting off 30 snaps in a 10-minute period had become common.

i think practices at training camp might be the same amount of time and they might even be shorter than the typical one, but it should be a lot more entertaining with a whole lot less standing around and talking. they'll definitely get a whole lot more done.

i'm not sure, but i think that college teams are under even more strict rules for practice then pros. at the very least there's not a whole lot of difference.

"No one is married to an offense or a defense. If we had a group of guys that could line up in the Power-I and run the Power-I then we would do it."

This guy will come in and alter his offense to the (many) strengths that we have as an offensive unit. I'd be real excited if we brought Chip Kelly in.

I hate that I like RR. And I hate the uncertainty at coach. But Chip Kelly would be an exciting change of pace.

Maybe get Chad Morris for OC (I kid I kid... would prefer Clemson stay intact)

I think even besides Chips offensive guru status I love his ability to lead the team and motivate his guys. We need that. RR is not the leader our players need. I hope we can get him.

It's Rivera or Kelly IMO. I haven't seen anyone else worth changing everything around.
