KELLY DOES NEED A MOBILE QB (Fixed Version)

Posted July 17, 2013

CHIP Kelly says he doesn't NEED a mobile QB to run his system. 

Total bulls***.

As OC for Oregon in 2007-2008 Kelly's QB's finished NO LOWER than 3rd in rushing yards. 

 

BOTH times in under 16 games the QB had over 100 rushing attempts DESPITE having a strong running game already.  

Why gamble your QB's health if you can already run?

You know what? We'll set that aside. He was after all only the OC. Perhaps he was simply delivering the system that the HC wanted.

So the question becomes "What would Kelly do when HE called the shots?"

Lets see!

Not only did the system continue to emphasize QB running, but the QB started to catch 1 pass per year. So not only did Kelly want the QB to be able to run, now he also required him to have soft hands. 

 

Look, I'm not suggesting that Nick Foles won't win the starting gig, but I am saying that if he does then Kelly will have to alter everything about the system he's run for 6 years, based on what he's seen from Foles over 6 real games, OTA's, Training Camp, and a few series during preseason football. 

Seems like a lot.
