Studying the Raw Materials of Chip Kelly’s Up-Tempo Offense - Chris Brown
With Chip Kelly going to the Eagles, there’s been much hand wringing about whether Chip Kelly’s offense will work in the NFL, whether he’ll bring it to Philly verbatim, and so on. I honestly don’t know the definitive answer – I am not sure Chip does — but I’m certainly looking forward to watching. Nevertheless, I expect Kelly to evolve his offense and, more importantly, tailor it to the personnel he has in Philadelphia.

Everything Supposedly Bad For The NFL Is Good For The NFL - Drew Magary
They all say that. That little capper from Taylor is all football fans need to absolve themselves of any guilt. Well hey, it's his life. If he wants to spend every night screaming in pain, that's his choice. MOAR FOOTBALL PLEEEZ.

Mike McCoy scores with Whisenhunt hire - Bill Williamson
Credit Whisenhunt (who will call the offensive plays) for keeping his ego in check and going to San Diego after being bypassed for the top job. He was clearly interested in working with Rivers. Also, credit McCoy for being confident enough to hire a competitor for the job. This doesn’t always happen in the NFL.

New Chargers playcaller has Super Bowl bling - Tom Krasovic (paywall)

Exclusive Interview with Ken Whisenhunt - Ricky Henne
We’ll get a chance to get some time and go through the tape, talk about what we want to do and what gives us the best chance to be successful going forward. That’s not something that you can sit here a couple hours after you’ve gotten the job and say this is what we’re going to do. I think what we’re going to do is try to put our guys in the best position to score a lot of points, make plays and get our fans excited.
