I have been plenty critical of Howie over the past few years, but he wanted Chip for all the reasons that we saw on display last night. Chip has a chance to truly innovate the game and Howie believed in him more than anyone.

Our organization can be criticized at times, but the one thing they are is forward thinking. Despite many complaints about Andy's pass happy ways, the reality is that the league moved in that direction and Andy was at the forefront of that movement.

Chip's innovations are another, greater example of that mindset.

The league moved in that direction, and Andy followed. During our best years, he called his fewest amount of passes. 2005 is when he really started to pass more and more, and of course beyond that to his finale, a 4-12 debacle.

I'll hold my breath until a bunch of players/coaches call Chip Kelly 'predictable.' rolleyes.gif
