Do not want Chip Kelly after this rumor....

According to Sports Illustrated, Oregon's Chip Kelly will be looking for "near complete control when it comes to personnel decision-making power" if he's to make the jump to the NFL.SI's Don Banks believes that could make Kelly a no-go for the Eagles, who are expected to make a big push for the Ducks' innovative offensive mind. According to Banks, Kelly could also be a possibility for the Panthers. With only an interim GM in place in Carolina, Kelly could likely get the "complete control" he's seeking if coach Ron Rivera is dismissed. Kelly's addition would be an exciting one for Cam Newton.

Nope, a guy with no NFL past at all wants almost complete control? Hell no.

I'm pretty sure this was said about Jim Harbaugh when he was doing interviews before the San Fran job.

He wants to be GM and coach. We're looking for a GM and possibly a head coach. We aren't a match for what he's looking for.

JR is not going to give full control to a guy who has NO NFL experience at all.
