Anybody else watching the NBC pre game show? Sounds like its done
Been wondering if his Offensive style will work in "The League"
IT TAKES NO TALENT TO HUSTLE
Interesting move for the Browns. Chip is going to need the right qb... I just don't know if the Browns are going to target the right qb for CK to have success in the NFL. Thank goodness the owner is trying everything in his power to make UT's schedule a little easier next year.... J/K
This is a high risk move for a new owner Jimmy Haslam. He will be a genius or an idiot in 2 years.
This is a good move by Haslam.... The browns have nothing to lose, they have been bad for a while... They might as well try something different...
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
Maybe his system is also infallible....
Maybe this will give us a chance in the Oregon game next year.
The Browns may draft a Kelly style qb in a later round or Weeden may be on the block
This news would certainly bode well for the Vols this fall. And ol' Kelly may just liven up the NFL a little. It would certainly be interesting to see pros buy in and execute that system.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
I've already heard those close to Kelly discuss this. He intends to modify his system to ft the pro game. They said he had been thinking about it for a couple of years and has talked to numerous people the The League. He didn't develop that system overnight. He and Bilotti kept modifying it weekly until they got what they wanted. Then Kelly changed it again when he took over. My guess is that given the right personnel he'll do pretty good.
In case you didn't see it, Oregon was running the 4-3 Leo defense against Kansas State. That is what we are expected to run next year. I liked the flexibility of the standup DE.

The only reason I see Kelly failing is if he doesn't get a good qb. But this can be said for 28/32 coaches in the league for the most part. Without a good to great qb you are not going to win. I also think that the system has a chance to win in the league as the myth about the league is that they have to be able under the center as that was the knock on Cam Newton that he was never under center but in the league he is almost never under center or not as much as quarterbacks were 5-10 years ago.
Now he can get who they really wanted. Saban.
Some have been questioning if his system would work.... Comparable systems ARE working. Just watch that NFC game with RGIII and RWilson! I'm not a fan of either team, but that was an exciting game! Also, look at Koepernick in SF and Newton in Carolina! IMO, the NFL is gradually accepting these types of offenses. Not saying NFL will go away from Pro Style completely, but is using the Pistol a lot more. Kelly would succeed with the right players. That being said, good luck Haslam, you'll need it!!
Belichek met with Kelly during the offseason and has incorporated some elements of the Oregon offense into the Patriots system. So if nothing else, there are aspects of the system that should translate well.
ESPN said the Browns are moving in with their search. Philly or Oregon?
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
Staying at Oregon. Amazing.
I think the Carolina job not opening sealed his fate.. Would have been the one place where they already have the tools he would need to run his system and they chose not to fire Rivera..
