Really don't want him either.
A rookie head coach like him for NFL standards has zero leverage though.
If he wasn't interested he wouldn't interview, if he had no intentions of going to the NFL he wouldn't risk pissing off Oregon by taking interviews...There's almost no pressure coming here to be a coach, a team like Philly wants a ring, that's a ton of pressure and you know it's Philly after one year they'll be calling for his job if they don't make the championship game at least...in Buffalo the only pressure would getting the team to the playoffs within a few years, which guess what? If he doesn't do that with any team in the league he'd be fired...Buffalo is probably the best situation for him, NE won't be good for too much longer, the Jets are about to hit rock bottom and the Phins are improving but I would think the Bills have a better roster right now...the Browns have three other teams competing for the playoffs every year same with Philly
Get to a wildcard here and the fans will build a statue. He would be untouchable for 4-5 years after that.
Get to a wildcard in Philly and they will demand your firing for not getting to the divisional round. McNabb was a bum to them. Fitzpatrick was a hero here for resembling an NFL QB for a handful of games.
Yes I'm back. You're welcome.
They said Mario Williams would never sign here
None of what is happening now would be going on. That's how close the NFL is.
Yes I'm back. You're welcome.
So you think had Gailey still been here the lease deal doesn't happen and Ralph doesn't step down? Hmm, i'm kind of convinced it all went hand in hand to be honest.
Give George Wilson a key to the city!
If CHip takes the Bills to the playoffs in like 2 out of his first 3 years, he will be hailed as the savior of this franchise and would literally be given the key to the city
Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Buffalo are all going to make their best guesses at what Kelly is looking for and develop their sales pitch around that.
Kelly will go with whichever team gets it right and has the money to match. Brandon and his team got it right with Mario Williams, so they may be able to do it again.
None of us know exactly what Kelly is looking for, so we are all just speculating. Let's hope our front office guys are good at reading Kelly and can pull of another coup.
I don't get all the love for Chip Kelly.
If Chan was accused of running a College Offense then what is Kelly's??
And if this is to work in the NFL we will need a QB that can both run and throw the football so will Brad Smith be the starting QB now?
I am not sold on this idea of Chip Kelly in the NFL like Charlie Casserly also stated when asked about this guy.
I just don't see that type of offense being played in the NFL because the QB will take alot of hits running the football.
1) Patterson WR- Vols
2) Nassib/Glennon/Wilson/Jones/ Manuel (the one OBD belives in)
3) Vance McDonald TE - Rice
4) Reddick ILB - North Carolina
5) S.Thomas Syracuse / D.J. Swearinger - South Carolina - S
6) Chris Jones - DT - Bowling Green
FA. Sign Moore to play LG for two years. Sign Karlos Dansby to play ILB for 1-2 years.
Go all in on franchise guy next year if he is there and 2nd round QB is not ready.
