He really is. He took Oregon to 4 consecutive BCS games and now has Philly rolling. He took Philly to the playoffs his 1st year there and now has them a top the division at 7-2. Dude is a fantastic coach. Very unique and hands on also as he even incorporates players' sleep patterns and nutrition. Philly is lucky to have him.

chip kelly ever won any titles?

 

no, but he never had a lower division or lower-tiered job.

 

As head man at UO, never had a non-BCS bowl season. As a pro coach never missed the playoffs (likely two years)

 

that adds up to 5 (soon to be 6) seasons that have lead to great post-season opportunites...every season as a head man. Not too shabby at all I'd say!

Amen! And why is this in Open? I'll move it to General.

 

An interesting thing I heard an announcer say once is that great coaches adjust their system so players rise up and can succeed using their strengths. I've always seen that in chip. I've always been concerned with "qbs" never quite having Kelly's system or still not getting the offense.

 

Anyone else have thoughts on this.

I'm not sure i agree. I've never really seen Chip adjust his system that much. His success is on running a great scheme that is still very novel. It's kind of like a Joe Gibbs and his power scheme. Certainly a legit coach and proved himself as a winner but I'd have him a decided rung below Belicheck, Vermeil, Walsh, etc.. The way I see it, you could put Peyton in that system and win a lot of games but Peyton would have to fit his system and not the other way around.

 

The Sanchez that I saw on Sunday was the same Sanchez with the only difference being not having the anchor of that awful Jets franchise pulling him down. He missed a fair share of receivers, was super athletic, was able to use his solid arm to make some throws and benefited from a scheme that got him a lot of easy throws. No shot at either of them, I just don't think he's as much a quarterback whisperer as, say, Sean Peyton.

Your right Chip Kelly is a great coach but Mark Sanchez was never a bad player. Look who he had at New York, at times his receiving core I think was worse than many college teams receiving cores (ND included) and just no help for the guy. Vick can't succeed, Geno can't, Mark couldn't..... they can go get another high draft pick but he won't succeed unless they upgrade the talent around him.

 

He wasn't amazing, he was good, efficient and better than teams like Houston and the Bills have who could potentially grab him next year. Let's not forget that o-ine with Mathis back was unreal! He had all day to throw and any quarterback will succeed with that.
