Yet another Chip Kelly source/rumor

163 posts in this topic

2 TE formations have been around since dirt was created. Are we going to give Kelly credit for that too? Just last year, we had 2 dynamic pass catching TE's, so it's not like NE has invented something new with Gronk and Hernandez.

The biggest influence Kelly has probably had on NE is with their one-word play calls. That allows them to run their no huddle offense at a faster pace. However, Kelly isn't the only coach that has provided tips to NE, as BB also has had frequent input from guys like Urban Meyer and Lou Saban.

Look, I'm not dead set against Kelly. He interests me and is a guy worth looking at. But let's keep things in perspective. Giving him credit for the use of 2 TE's in the passing game is just ridiculous.

you act like a gave him that credit. of course 2 TE sets have been around long before kelly but tell me another team that used 2 TE as their main receivers. we used 2 TE also...when we copied from NE. this is a copy cat league. you copy what other teams do well cause it works. we copied from NE when the 2 TE worked. Why not bring in a guy who doesnt copy but creates? the main reason cam made a huge splash was no one had tape on him. no one will have tape on a cam/kelly offense. it becomes that much more deadly when you dont even know what to prepare for.

can you tell me with a straight face that youd rather have Ron over that? cause i cant.

This isn't a Ron vs. Chip argument.

I just get the impression you haven't been watching football for very long. I'm not trying to be condescending, but you keep making these statements that are just silly. First, the one about NE learning how to use a 2 TE offense from Kelly, and now, that our offense last year used 2 TE's to move the ball because we copied NE.

Child, please.

you keep making assertions that i said kelly showed them the 2 TE offense I did not. second, you completely dodged the question of me asking you to find any team that has used the 2 TE as main receivers? Gronk had Megatron stats last year. a TE having WR stats is usually unheard of. the 2 TE mega season NE had was in 2011 kelly wasnt brought in until after that season. of course he didnt show them that but he did give them suggestions on spread and no huddle which highlights gronk and hernandez because there is more than likely a miss match of a LB on one of them.

dont ever child please me. ive been watching football for a long time. i dont make dumb misinformed assertions about your life dont make them about mine.

Sorry if I offended you, but the reality is you are still very young (and that is a good thing, believe me) and there were some spectacular TE's doing things before you were born.

If you have the time, do some research on Kellen Winslow Sr. or Shannon Sharpe. They put up Megatron type seasons (for that era) and were true game changers.

NE happens to have 2 very talented tight ends, and when you couple that with a QB like Brady, good things are going to happen. My only point is that it's not something revolutionary that is happening with that offense. What is going on in NE, and this applies to Kelly's input into the system as well, isn't tearing up the league because defenses are overly confused by it. It's tearing up the league because it is being run by really, really good players.

Sorry if this is a dumb question (I'm kinda ignorant on anything coaching-related in the NFL), but is there any chance JR could bring in Chip Kelly as our HC and demote Rivera to be our defensive coordinator? I think Ron would be an ideal fit for our DC and already presumably has a strong relationship with our players, but I've just never heard of a head coach getting demoted to a coordinator position. I dunno if it's a pride thing or if there are rules against it or what, but it sounds like a good idea to me....

I like what Rivera has done with our defense this season (assuming he has taken reins a bit from McDermott like people have suggested), but I just hate his decision-making. If we could keep Rivera working with our D but have someone else come in that can overrule any of Rivera's dumb decisions, I'd feel a lot better about our team next season.

Just heard on ESPN Kelly will be targeted by the Philadelphia Eagles...

So don't get your hopes too high

It will be us vs the Eagles for Chip Kelly

Who's the QB for the Iggles? Nick Foles? We win.

But Lurie will push Richardson to the ground like Walmart shoppers stampeding for a bargain TV on Black Friday when the doors open.

LaCanfora on CBS reporting that the Eagles are considered 'leading candidates' to land Kelly.

He believes they'll do pretty much anything to get him.

My age literally has nothing to do with this conversation at all. I get the impression you are a brain dead monkey who likes to flex internet muscles. I'm right cause you know I'm a knowledge person on the subject right? Let's just end this. We've gone way off topic anyway

    • You're looking at a false reality. You're creating a narrative that doesn't truly exist, that a person is only defined by their race and nothing else. Your views on people are just as bad as those who created the Jim Crow Laws, spit on people and look down on them based on race only, and enslaved millions because of the color of their skin; never once considering them how they are as a person. You see them based on their race instead of how they are as people. Ignore the fact that America has elected a black president twice in a row for an 8 year presidency. Ignore the plentiful amount of successful blacks in plenty of fields of career fields who are wealthy and living a productive and successful lifestyle. Ignore the dominance of black athletes in sports. Look at them as people, and how their personality and characteristics got them to where they are instead of race. The way they got to where they are is completely justified and has nothing to do with race.
    • He's the most intriguing prospect of the draft.  If he can be a true T with the ability to not only play both spots but to excel in them we may have selected one of the steals of the draft.  Sucks we won't have that 5th yr option but I'd welcome that problem later to have a true LT/RT for years to come.
    • I 100% support his politics. I 100% hate him as a QB...along with Wilson Luck and Ryan. I want him to succeed as I like having NFL adversaries for Cam #TeamCam
