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

Nor will most teams. He can want in one hand...! If he holds to this, hes cutting his chances of landing a job, in half. Browns and Chiefs, FTW

Probably wont happen, but I would love to see Kelly take over this team and have full decision making.

I would love to see Kelly making the calls on Draft Day. Harbaugh, Schiano, and Carroll has shown that they can draft players pretty well with their experiences of recruiting players back in college (Aldon, Kaepernick, Culliver, Doug Martin, Barron, David, Wagner, Irvin, Carpenter, Wilson, Moffitt, KJ Wright, Sherman, Okung, Earl, Chancellor, etc). Cant say that these college coaches doesnt know talents.

well I was expecting rumors of a young coach with a ton of confidence to say that he didn't want any input in personnel decisions at all.

I think we should see what he says, and I don't think we should laugh at him if he says he wants full control... try to negotiate.

To be fair, Chip Kelly is stellar at evaluating talent.

It isn't hard to evaluate talent when all you look for is speed, dude is like the Al Davis of College scouting. You can't do that in the NFL, evaluating NFL talent and College talent is COMPLETELY different.

Regardless of the validity of this rumor I still want Kelly. The chance to have Kelly and newton together I'd give a lot up for. I'd go all in especially having a sh*tty Rivera as the other choice.

If Rivera is fired, we will hire our GM then hire our coach. Marc Ross for instance isn't gonna hire Kelly when he wants control over his duties.

Take your blinders off.

I think wanting too much control is why Cowher hasn't landed with one of the teams he's expressed interest in. If we won't do it for him, we won't do it for Kelly.
