Chip Kelly is getting tired of the talk he will bring the high octane attack he ran at Oregon to the NFL.
Many college coaches have tried to bring their style to the highest level, only to fail. Kelly doesn't want people to think he has some magic pixie dust that will change the game, he knows it's football and the guys on the other sidelines get paid too.
The image that comes to mind is that Kelly is an innovator who will bring some crazy style never seen before, but he warns that nothing is new or anything other coaches haven't seen before.
"I don't think anybody's inventing anything new," Kelly said, via Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times. "It's a very cyclical game. A lot of things that are being done with the Wildcat formation was the single-wing formation run way back when."
"We don't run some magical offense or defense," he said. "You're talking about the best coaches in the world at this level. They see everything that we've done at the college level, and everything we'll do, they've seen before."
"If you've got a good coaching staff, that's what you do," he said. "The best example in the NFL is [Denver Coach] John Fox. A year ago, he had Tim Tebow and went to the playoffs.
Now, he has Peyton Manning and runs an entirely different offense, and went to the playoffs. When you're good, you adapt to who you have."
