Editors note: The Oregonian mentioned that Chip Kelly may be holding out to move on to the NFL until he can have his dream job — that of head coach of the New England Patriots. NFL writer Luke Hughes and assistant editor Doug Kyed debate whether Kelly would make a good successor for Bill Belichick.
If Chip Kelly is holding out to make the jump to the NFL until after Bill Belichick retires, he may be waiting awhile — possibly forever.
Kelly isn’t a great fit for the Patriots, despite his New England roots and Belichick connection. It’s possible he’s not a great fit for the NFL in general. He’s a 49-year-old college coach, whose first experience as a head coach came just four years ago in Oregon. He’s never coached in the NFL at any level and while a similar spread option offense has been working with the Redskins and Seahawks this season, that has just as much to do with the personnel on the field as the scheme dictating it.

A regular-season rout can be a poor predictor of the postseason rematch.
Coach Bill Belichick can remind his New England Patriots of that less than a month after their 42-14 romp that shoved the Houston Texans into their late-season plunge.
The stakes will be much higher when the Texans return Sunday to Gillette Stadium. The winner in the divisional-round game goes to the AFC championship...
Oregon is a better job than the Eagles.
It seems that it's only a matter of time before Chip Kelly is officially announced as the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns. And that should excite Browns fans.

In this case however...

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Oregon’s head football coach Chip Kelly has decided to stay at Oregon for another year, rather than take up the Philadelphia Eagles’ offer to become their head coach. Kelly was interviewed by multiple NFL teams, and the Browns and Eagles...
In the end, the chance to remain king and win a National Championship was more important than being the new guy. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that Kelly has chosen to stay at Oregon and spurn the NFL once again.
Kelly obviously likes to be courted, but in the end, chose the jerseys and being the king of the Pac 12 over Vick and Foles.
Peter King adds that the Eagles seem to telling Chip Kelly that “we like you, but we’ll be fine without you.” King also mentions that Kelly could end up getting “cold feet” due to “not seeing an ideal job” and return to Oregon.

Is it surprising to anybody that a team coached by Bill Belichick is approaching this game, where they are almost universally favored, as if they are the underdogs? This is why the New England Patriots have been a top-tier franchise for the past decade. They don't take any match-up lightly.When asked about being the heavy favorite against the Houston Texans, Patriots TE Rob...
Bill Belichick doesn't believe that a blowout means anything in a rematch.
Where I hit you with some thoughts/opinions on the Bills reported coaching candidates.
Consider me in the camp of people who would love to have Chip coach our team. After the glut of stodgy older coaches (Gailey, Jauron), or coaches that buy into older philosophies (Mularkey), it sure would be nice to welcome a younger guy who is widely considered one of the biggest...
