Yet another Chip Kelly source/rumor

163 posts in this topic

I'm not opposed to the Chip Kelly hire. However at this point my fear is the team having to adjust to a new system again. Despite all my previous anti Cam sentiment in the past, he has grown as a qb towards the end of this season. I don't know how much of that has to do with his individual/mental growth, or Chudzinski's system finally being adapted to muscle memory. At this point I want to keep our coaches, or hire the right coaches that accelerate his growth and not force him to take a step back to learn more terminology. If Chip Kelly can adapt what Cam already knows and morph it into something more that would be awesome. If it involves another year of retooling then I'm not sure about it. If we win the next two games it will be hard to justify making a change even though I will be first to admit I have been the biggest advocate for firing Rivera.

it would be something similar to what he's already proven to excel in. the hardest thing to adjust to would be the pace and cam's already worked at that pace.

i have no doubt it would be easy to adjust to and learn and aside from a couple missing pieces on the oline is set up to run it.

When Chip Kelly was at New Hampshire they had the best D1AA qb and led the nation in passing. When he came to Oregon they had Stewart and Dennis Dixon and they became the best rushing team in the country. People who focus on his scheme and call it a gimmick are missing why Kelly is such a hot name in the NFL. He'll adjust his offense for the talent he's given. That's not important. What's important is his leadership and management style.

I wish we could see Stew's reaction live if/when he first finds out he's our new coach

The way I see Chip Kelly running an NFL offense is similar to what the Broncos do now and the Colts did with Peyton as well, except the only difference being that audibles will come from sideline instead of the QB (at least initially).

Quick calls, get to the line, force defenses to show their hand early, and react to what the defense is showing (or pretending to show). That basic concept will work on any level.

Hopefully he doesn't run the same offense as he did in college because there is too much east west running plays which does not work in the NFL. But if he makes the proper adjustments and hastens the pace, I am all for it.

I do think Chip Kelly will be our next HC. I think we finish 6-10, Rivera is fired, and JR brings in Kelly.

I am not thrilled about it. I'd rather have someone proven. It reminds me of when Cleveland brought in Butch Davis from Miami. Ultimately, Davis energized the Browns and went 7-9 before going 9-7 and losing in the wildcard playoffs but proved that he was not the answer to win HUGE games and the franchise was set back. I could see that here. I would rather have a guy with experience at the NFL level more qualified than Rivera. A guy we turn into a great. Mike Zimmer perhaps.

He's never really had great defenses though.

Or how about Chip Kelly goes back to school one more year, we give Rivera another year. He takes us to the playoffs we know Rovera is the guy and we keep him, if not then Kelly will for sure want to coach in the NFL in 2014, we fire Rivera and Kelly will be hired

Pats and Packers never have good defensive and make it to superbowls and playoffs every year.

Packers had a historically bad defensive and went 15-1.
