No mentions of Tim Tebow in a chip Kelly offense... Just playing devils advocate
with the talent coming out of college on D now days, pocket passers are a thing of the pass.
there is a reason so many teams OLines look so bad now, DLinemen has just gotten Bigger, stronger, and faster as the years go by.
that being said, Big Ben and Aron Rogers play in well designed systems, their coaches game-plan and adjust to what the D is doing in game, think back on SEA beating up on Rogers in the first half (8 or 9 Sacks) and didn't touch him in the second half.
Andy and Marty don't game-plan well and they dont make good in-game decisions.
we don't need Smith he is a product of a system, where was he before Jim got there? Give me Vick over him any day.

Sign/draft physical cornerbacks
Sign/draft Starting Safeties
Sign/draft Outside LB
Sign/draft Inside LB (Ryans Replacement)
And mobile QBs are hardly the way to go...
"Non - Mobile" QBs who have won SBs:
Peyton Manning x 1
Tom Brady x 3
Drew Brees x 1
Eli Manning x 2
Brett Favre x1
Kurt Warner x 1
Brad Johnson x 1
Trent Dilfer x 1
Troy Aikman x 3
Mark Rypien x 2
Jeff Hostetler x 2
Joe Montana x 4
Total Rings = 22
Steve Young x 3 (including those he was on the bench for)
Ben Roethlisberger x 2
Aaron Rodgers x 1
Elway (sort of) x 2
Total Rings = 8
Its important to note that all the mobile QBs listed are effective pocket passers, which is ultimately what is the most important role of an NFL QB
Well, Casey Matthews likes him, and doesn't seem any problem in saying so.Chip Kelly has at least one endorsement in Philadelphia -- from Eagles linebacker Casey Matthews.
Harrison: Week 13 predictions
With only five games left in the regular season, it's must-win time for several clubs. Elliot Harrison provides his picks for Week 13. More ...
Matthews played two seasons under Kelly at the University of Oregon before being selected in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. Kelly could make the jump into the NFL after this season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tried to pry Kelly out of Eugene during the offseason. Both Jon Gruden and Bill Belichick have picked Kelly's brain for tips about the Ducks' high-octane offense.
The Eagles are expected to part ways with Andy Reid after a second consecutive underachieving season, and Kelly could be high on their replacement list.
"I think the fans here would love him," Matthews told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "They would love his attitude, his go-get-it mentality.
"The way he carries himself, the way his mindset is, I think they'll really like him here. He would crack jokes. When he would talk to reporters at halftime, he would give the most sarcastic answers."
One question surrounding Kelly is, will his system will work in the NFL? Many college coaches have failed on the next level.
"You got to have the right personnel," Matthews said. "I think it could work. I don't see why it couldn't. It's pretty tough to stop. Even when you have it down, teams will start getting tired quick. They're not used to that pace.
"They're so unbelievably fast. Say, if it was a defensive period, he'd have two offenses lined up. When they'd do one play, they'd run off and the other team would come on. It was just rapid fire. His mindset was 100 plays in 100 minutes. You didn't ever have to condition."
Sometimes I like to say who I'd like to go out with next while my girlfriend is still in the room.

Too bad Casey has been a complete bust.
Hey Riley, I'm Baaaaaaaaaaack!
Just read an interesting article naming Greg Roman as a potential HC candidate.Current OC for the 49ers.He has a hard nose background,might be a good choice.
greg roman opens the door up for alex smith. that alone is enough for me to say hell no.
i can already see a seattle seahawks situation where the former viking OC became the OC in seattle and decided to bring in tavaris jackson.
if greg roman wants to come in, draft a QB, and then make the team go from there i'm fine with it.
here is a link to the Greg Roman article.One thing I like is that he was an Eagles fan as a kid.
Stanford head coach might be interesting as well. Chip would be exciting, but the Stanford coach has an NFL background and plays with a hard nosed approach and an NFL style offense.
I like the idea i think he could utilize our offensive weapons and improve our defense
Not really a big fan of hiring college coaches. Its much different coaching men then boys.
how about Terrell Pryor?
