Oh Snaps!

Posted January 24, 2013

Chip Kelly will be bringing in with his high powered offense the volume of taking snaps. At Oregon his offense averaged a snap every 20 seconds. Personally I like the idea of the fast paced offense. It doesn't mean they will be passing it 50 times a game with a rookie and a guy who can't read defenses (like the previous guy), but it does mean they will be getting to the line quickly. Then they will have time to do motions, audibles, and presnap adjustments. How many times under Reid did this team get to the line too late to make adjustments only to have to call timeouts? How many times did this team have the clock run out on them inside of two minutes, because Reid blew all his timeouts? Let's not forget how they performed as if they were up in the Super Bowl taking their time and watching their one chance fade away. Pacing and playing fast will be good for this team. It could tire a defense out. That's why I think some of the older guys may find it hard to be here unless they are ready to move and run. This isn't going to be an easy change for some of these guys. There has been a complacency that has dogged this team under Reid the past few seasons. Guys are going to have to get back to work. It's not going to be an over night fix.
