Chip is another bird

Post by Geezaldinho on Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:33 am

Despite his claim that he would remain a Duck, ESPN is reporting this morning that the Chipster will head up the Eagles. Apparently roster control was the issue.

Oregon thought it had a year before it had to worry again about Chip and whether a NFL team would lure him away. It turns out, the Ducks were blindsided 10 days after he said he was staying in Eugene.

Really it was just a matter of timing for Chipís departure, but his about-face will probably go down in sports lore alongside Nick Saban's infamous "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach" just before leaving to take that job.

No matter what reason Kelly chose for leavingÖ.money, control, or power, (or maybe he simply had a change of heart) his credibility will be a major question going forward considering how he told Oregon one thing and then did the other.

But really, after all Chip has given UO fans, I donít think anyone should begrudge him the opportunity to move on to new challenges and the riches that can go with it. Heís apparently left the program in good shape (except for one nagging NCAA investigation), and thatís a lot more than happens at many universities.

I look forward to watching his style of offense fail at the professional level.

I don't think Chip had a Saban moment. He's never said he was staying at Oregon forever. He's clearly always wanted to coach in the NFL. I think it came down to the Eagles making the necessary concessions to get Chip, which apparently they weren't willing to do when they first interviewed him.

The Oregon program has never been in better shape, but Chip is going to be hard to replace. Maybe the new coach can recruit a kicker!

I'm not upset with Chip at all and am actually suprised anyone would compare him to Saban. Chip was going to leave eventually but the Ducks aren't going to be lost without him. When I heard the news I actually wasn't that shocked.

If you're not following, Chip is currently tied for best record in the NFL, with a big game against the Seahawks this weekend.

Turkey Eagles Gobble the Duck

Really not a surprise that Chip Kelly was fired by the Eagles.....there were just too many personnel decisions that back-fired and too much dissension in the ranks that led to losses this season.

Any speculation here as to Chip's next perch?

Lots of NFL jobs open or soon to be open.† I think he'll stay in the pros.

Perhaps a reunion in Tennessee? They chould be getting the #1 pick in the draft.

But there are a great number of other NFL teams also looking for some revitalization.

Miami? Cleveland? Maybe even the 49ers....

Wasn't there some sort of penalty he would have to serve if he returned to the NCAA?

The Titans would be a good fit in that they have the perfect quarterback for his system. The problem is that otherwise, they are terrible.

His show cause was only 18 months, so he's in the clear now.

I don't think Chip can coach in the NFL right now. He won't take a job unless it includes being the GM and his experience as GM has shown he has no basis for a team to give him the GM position. I imagine he could get any job in college that is available and will likely end up at one.

There are other reports that he doesn't want the personnel responsibilities in his next position.† I think at Philly the atmosphere was poisoned, what with player accusations of racism, etc. And my speculation is that the GM he pushed out of the way spent the year trying to undermine him internally; that guy is on the search committee for a new coach by the way. Giving up†personnel power in Philly would have been a sign of obvious weakness, and the players would have taken more advantage of that.

Those issues all go away with a new team and a fresh start.

Yea, I have to agree with you there. †

If Coach Kelly hasn't learned his lesson about wearing too many hats in the NFL by now, he's never going to learn. †Be the coach, period!!

Al Davis wore multiple hats while bringing the Raiders to prominence, but it soon became apparent he could be a coach or an administrator....he chose the latter and the team flourished (for awhile).

I honestly don't see Kelly going back to college coaching. †With the right fit of personnel and management, I think he can be a successful NFL coach....and he'll get the chance to prove it this coming season.

It's down to Mike Shanahan or Chip Kelly to the 49ers....

Between those two, it's got to be Chip Kelly to San Francisco!

With the Miami and Cleveland jobs filled, it had to be the 49ers! tongue

As Trent Baalke is remaining as the GM at SF, it would seem that Chip can make suggestions to the front office, but his duties are on the field!!

If Chip can continue to go with his unique style of offense it could be that Colin Kaepernick will come back at quarterback (most figured he'd be traded prior to the draft)....and he's got a lot of athletic guys at the skill positions.
