The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that they will hire Chip Kelly as their new head coach. This comes as a surprise to many, as it appeared that Kelly was staying at Oregon. Perhaps the looming sanctions made him nervous again. We’re all interested to see how Chip Kelly’s offense will translate to the NFL, and all of the talking head are paid to give an opinion on it, but frankly none us know what he will do. We can probably expect him to continue with his up-tempo innovations, but who knows how much he’ll incorporate the read-option and/or a running quarterback into his pro offense. It will be fun to watch all of this play out, but as a tortured Browns fan I didn’t want to see this experiment happen in Cleveland, as I’m skeptical about running quarterbacks in the NFL. At least in Philly they have Micheal Vick, and with him I’d try anything. If he gets hurt just move on to the next guy.
