Chip Kelly: The crazier you are, the better you appear to be

One of my former colleagues suggests that’s Chip Kelly’s modus operandi. There may be some truth to that. There’s hardly anyone out there who believes Glass Bradford is a better quarterback at this point than Nick Foles, but Kelly seems to believe so. He also believes his system is going to make any quarterback better than he was in a prior system. In Mark Sanchez’s case, that may be true.  

One thing BSP understands about a system in the NFL: Eventually the league catches up with it. They figure out the system and that team, having players that aren’t as good, eventually fails. It’s like the run-and-shoot offense, the fun-and-gun offense and all the other offenses that are so prolific.

Chip Kelly ditched Shady McCoy because of salary cap considerations; now he’s brought in DeMarco Murray:

Citing a league source, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Murray is flying to Philadelphia “with the expectation of becoming an Eagle” and a financial agreement is in place for five years and $42 million, with $21 million guaranteed.

Are you kidding me? Kelly is going to be one of those coaches who leaves Kuwait burning, and no one knows why they listened to him in the first place. He’s trying to bring the college coach’s dictator mentality to the NFL.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
