Yet another Chip Kelly source/rumor

163 posts in this topic

I see nothing in that source's quote in which he says Chip is being considered here. He just says the rumor is "most interesting".

They give you an inch, you guys take it a mile.

I wouldn't necessarily mind him here but hell guys, this is all hearsay yet you wanna crown his ass already. Keep your panties on.

It's not a secret that the Panthers are interested. Everyone in the league knows it, this is just another person (who happens to be very knowledgeable about all things college football) who mentioned it. I'm still waiting for him to elaborate, but again, everyone knows they are interested. Doesn't mean it will happen.

this.

thats why i want him. besides him being a great offensive mind i believe in his ablility to lead teams and take over the lockerroom. i hope we land him. we need a big name coach to take us to the next level.

Yep. Plus what Razor has posted about the intensity of his practices. This Norv Turner style, lackadaisical, wait until 10 games into the season to play ball garbage has got to go.

The fact that our fan base is suggesting that we keep Rivera because we might upgrade from completely sh!tty to NorvTurner-esque mediocrity, is hilarious.

those defenses show up in the playoffs every year just like last year when vince wilfork helped pats win over the ravens and the last second toucdown they knocked loose.

didnt packers have someone int ben when he was about to take the lead......defense is very important in superbowls hopefully someone can get it right.

they have playmakers on defense yes. and we dont? luke, cj, kraken, beason, td.

their claim to fame those seasons was offense. they got to were they were through offense. did defensive play a part? yes but i see that the panthers could easily do the same thing. get a great dc then we are in great shape.

Everyone can settle down, because Ron isn't going anywhere, if he wins these next few games then the fans will have the memory of a fish. JR will be happy because all of the fans will be happy until we lose the first 8 games next year. smiley-sw025.gif

Its funny because defensive players are coming out lobbying for Rivera to return but I bet if you asked Cam and other offensive players they would most likely want Kelly to come to Carolina

I actually find myself cheering for Rivera to return at the thought of Chip Kelly. I remember Brian Billick saying this week on Mike and Mike, that Chip Kelly would be the only coach for someone like The Golden Calf of Bristol to play for, because of that Oregon offense. So if Chip Kelly is the favorite if we are getting a new coach, I'm cheering for Rivera to win these last two games (in blowout fashion) and keep his job.

How would the Panthers be interested in him if they don't even have a GM?

here is more in the organization and more to the decision making than a GM.

it's quite possible the team knows who they want as far as a GM and a coach next year. it could be that they know the direction their prospective GMs would want to go. It could be that Accorsi is giving advice for the organization that would have them going that way.

it wasn't just advising on and recommending a GM that Accorsi was supposed to be doing. that's the main thing, but not the entirety of the scope.

if that's true, bullick is in the minority.

who's he coaching for by the way? could be he's out of touch with the direction the league is going.

most seem to think he'd be able to be successful.

and you'd get over it when you figure out the chip kelly offense isn't as out there as you think it is.

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.

other than being college coaches there are no similarities between kelly and butch.

Kelly's offense as is will not work in the NFL. We've personally seen it shut down many times this season. And you definitely couldn't win a championship with it. It's just too gimmicky! There's nothing solid about it. I would hate to see Cam subjected to such an offense, it's bad enough watching him play in this offense for much of the season. The read option is a nice change up, but it's useless as a main course meal.

people are wanting to see Kelly with Cam and our offense to see what he can do with it. I don't think it would be any better than what Chud is doing.

kelly's a better decision maker than chud. he trusts his QBs more than chud. he's quicker to adjust than chud.

those wanting good old smash mouth run the ball down the gut would be happier with kelly. those wanting something innovative....eh, a toss up. those wanting an offense willing to impose it's will on the other team would be happier with kelly.

kelly's offense seems a lot more focused and his players are generally more prepared than any others on the field (i mean in practice they are used to getting near 30 reps in a 10 minute period). kelly's offense would be a whole lot more disciplined.

i just think that kelly would get more out of these guys than chud does.
