If You Believe Chip Kelly When He Says He’s Trying To Win Now….

Posted July 26, 2013

Then you can’t view his other comments as just “coach speak.” In other words he really is having a legit competition for many of the positions on his roster. He isn’t favoring one quarterback over another and when he said he will play the Quarterback who gives him the best chance to win he’s not planning to play multiple quarterbacks. It will be one guy. When he tells us he’s an “equal opportunity scorer,” he’s actually telling us that he’s not sold on doing things the way he did in college, and he understands he must change in order to stay relevant in the league. When he tells us that his depth chart is “written in sand’” then it means any player has the opportunity to not only make this team but start for this team. As such everyone is challenged to bring their best every practice, every play, every series, and every game. When Chip Kelly says he wants to win now I believe him, and I believe he doesn’t care which players get him there or how they go about doing it.  Finally Jeff Lurie has been at this business for sometime now. He knows how it goes. I seriously doubt the man who just gave a head coach over ten years, would just cut out on this coach after one regardless of his record.
