After an initial splash, Chip Kelly has felt the brunt of the NFL culture with his 1-3 team and some are speculating he's thinking about bolting back to the college ranks. In the infamous answer many NFL coaches gave before skipping town, Kelly proclaimed his allegiance to the Eagles, though it can be hardly reassuring.

  • He'll jump ship after his beagles go 4-12 this year.
  • If he were to leave the Eagle front office would be forced to get a top calibur guy with proven track record. Dungy , Cowher, Chuckie
  • Cowher maybe, but I think Dungy is content and Chuckie is diggin' MNF too much right now. But ya never know.
  • If Chip Kelly only has a no huddle type offense to offer the NFL then he is doomed to fail.New England has already been using no huddle for several years now and the rest of the NFL teams have adjusted to it. The result the Patriots lose games like any other NFL team despite no huddle offenses.When you watch an Eagles game there is NOTHING outstanding about that team compared to the other team on the field.In fact there might be something that does stand out on second thought.The Eagles always seem to be the SLOWEST team on the field and it doesn't matter what team they are playing!Maybe Chip Kelley felt that he was going to overwhelm the NFL with exceptional team speed.This kind of offense may have worked in the college ranks with Oregon but in the NFL every team has exceptional speed players.It's pretty much evened out in the NFL.Speed alone is no advantage.In college coaches can get ahead with no huddle offenses because physical conditioning and talent are so more varied between college teams.In the NFL there isn't that much difference between teams in conditioning and talent so NFL teams are for the most part even in terms of conditioning and talent.So for an NFL team to be good and dominate another NFL team it comes down to correct offensive play selection along with good Defensive play at the same time.So it's Chip Kelley's first year in the NFL and no coach from the college ranks ever made it to the Super Bowl in their first year and neither will Chip Kelly.
