Chip Kelly avoids sanctions, joins Eagles.

Just like Pete Carroll...
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/88...eagles-sources
PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles have hired Chip Kelly after he originally chose to stay at Oregon.

Kelly becomes the 21st coach in team history and replaces Andy Reid, who was fired Dec. 31 after a 4-12 season.

lol @ sanctions. weak.

Sad to see him go. I think Oregon was so close to getting there...hope they can keep it going.

Love their style of play...wonder if he can get NFL players to buy into that frenetic pace of offense.

The Patriots and Redskins run somewhat of what Kelly does. I think he can make it work. He's a genius offensive master mind so I'm sure he'll tweak some things to make it work better in the NFL. The only thing he needs to really worry about is hiring a grade A defensive coordinator and letting that guy have full control of the defense.

I hesitate to believe that NFL players would actually work hard enough to run an offensive scheme at the frenetic pace that Oregon has been running.

It works in college because the kids aspire to be Pro's someday, they want to play, they want to get better, get noticed...all the reasons you can think of. It works in college because the kids are motivated to buy into it.

I am not sure it would work in the NFL, because I'm just not convinced NFL players will play that game.

But who knows.

Tom Brady does it? Let me put it this way if it's the difference between being a starter on a pretty good team or being a drifter in the NFL, which do you think a young guy is going to choose? I imagine he'll find some people willing to work for it, especially if they're successful.

This reminds me a lot of when Spurrier came to the NFL. Offensive innovator with success at the college level, decides to try his hand at the NFL. It might work out, it might not.

Yeah, the Pats already do this, at least some of the time.

I did see a graphic on SportsCenter showing the average time per play for the "fastest" NFL offenses, and they took about 24-26 seconds per play. Kelly's Oregon offense last year took just under 21 seconds per play. FWIW, the Eagles were one of the top 5 fastest offenses already, so perhaps the transition won't be as big as some might think.

lol. The Pat's try. To say they do what Oregon does is beyond naive.

I like Chip Kelly, but I don't think he'll last long in the NFL. At least he'll collect some bank before he returns to the college ranks a la Spurrier.

Telling grown-@$$ men to hurry up in the NFL? Good luck with that!
