Seems to me what the Pats run now is very similar to what Kelly will try in the NFL, even down to the one word for a play concept.
I bet the Browns feel like they got Antoine Winfield'd.
Kelly and BB are friends and I am sure he will get some advice on the pro games. In his interviews he does not come off like a mike martz type.Laure is a great owner. I am looking forward to seeing him run the offense.
Why does anyone think he will have patience to put up with Vick and his turnovers. Why would anyone want Vick if you offense is predicated on quick decisions.
The Eagles are definitely a team that could fit to his uptempo offense in my opinion. They got plenty of speedy playmakers and a lot of versatile offensive weapons - McCoy, Jackson, Celek, Brown, Maclin, that rookie Johnson is one hell of a speedster aswell...
Look at the QBs under Chip Kelly, they are all good runners and average passers. He never recruited a true pocket passer like Foles for a reason.
Not saying he likes Vick, but Vick suits his system ten times better than Foles.
No worries here in Jet Land.....Rex is going to instill his personality into the offense and thus an attack offense like no other will be born.
Or they could have fired Wrecks and hired the architect of the attack offense.....but then Woody couldn't wear his short shorts and jog on the treadmill with Wrecks at training camp. So cheer up....the year 5 Re-Do is in full swing.
Now, maybe he changes his offense in the NFL, but then why even hire Chip Kelly if you're gonna neuter his system on Day 1?
I'm happy to see Chip Kelly come to the NFL with his offense. Hope he succeeds.
A QB with a decent arm, that can pass accurately in the pocket, and also dominate a game with running the football...is the type of QB that can bring both excitement and balance to NFL offenses.
Lets face it...you won't get rule changes to bring back balance to NFL offenses. So you need dual threat QBs to make it happen.
Rule changes have brought into existence record breaking passing attacks. So teams that have personnel on the field, that's more focused on defending the pass, are now more vulnerable to the run. This is clearly so...when you have both a RB and QB, that can explode for long runs and TDs.
Last year Cam Newton. This year RGIII, Kaepernick and Wilson are bringing the excitement. Taking advantage of defenses more prepared for the pass then the run. Pretty soon one of these types of dual threat QBs, will be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
If Brad Smith had an average NFL arm and accuracy...he could've been at least a poor man's version of those I've listed above. The Jets search for an effective NFL QB, in the 2nd - 4th rounds of a draft, takes on new dimensions...when running skills becomes more of a serious factor...as being part of the skill set for a franchise QB.
So I'm wishing you success Chip...make it work.
The dude did an about face
Would love to see him Draft Nick Florence, and give it a go.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/nf...ach-chip-kelly"I'll tell you what, I'm glad Nick Foles is graduating," Kelly told the Tucson Citizen after Foles threw for 398 yards and three touchdowns in a game Oregon won 56-31. "I catch myself watching him in awe sometimes. Nick is a hell of a football player. That kid's a warrior. He's as good as anyone in the country."
I don't think people are getting it. Kelly's offense isn't demanding on the QB at all. He still calls every play from the sideline. It's also a very small playbook.
The basic concept is very simple. By speeding things up, you make the defense more prone to mistakes. The increased pace of play doesn't increase your own mistakes because you practice at an even faster pace.
As the game goes on, the pace wears down the defense, further increasing their odds of screwing up.
It's a very easy offense to play in as long as you're in the physical condition to properly execute it. Vick wouldn't have any problems with Kelly's offense. Nothing they do is complicated, they just do it quickly. So quickly that you run out of breath and your head starts to spin...and no one plays good defense in that state. You stop Oregon's offense by not allowing them to get you into that state. Don't let them stack long drives early in the game and avoid 3 & outs on offense.

He is going to pretty much just do what the pats do, just for a bigger percentage of the game.
To expect him to implement such a radical system in one year isn't reasonable.
He does not have a stable of 20 yo guys at oline, he does not have a 100 man roster so that he could use 78 players like he did in the Arkansas state game.
His roster 3 years from now will probably have more offensive players than defensive.
One thing about the pro game that he will like are all the tv timeouts so that he can do his mass subs.
