Default Chip Kelly close to signing deal with Cleveland

Any thoughts on this with respect to the division. If so, He is gonna need almost a whole swap of players on offense. Weeden gone, even Richardson is not the type of back for the offense he ran at Oregon. It will be interesting to watch what happens.

I agree, Weeden won't fit Kelly's system...

However, I can see him revitalizing Colt McCoy's career... he just needs to get the right tools in place.

Ok...Here's my thoughts...This is the wrong division for his offense. Our defenses in the AFCN are ferocious. He ought to sign elsewhere if he were really smart.

Judging by the browns message board, here are the Browns stats for the upcoming season

Cleveland Browns 19-0 Super Bowl

Trent Richardson 2500 total yards 25 touchdowns

Greg Little 1400 yards 12 TDs

Josh Gordon 1800 yards 15 TDs

Quarterback 1200 rushing yards 4500 passing yards 50 total TDs

I hope this is true as a Bengals fan. His system will not work in the NFL...however until its final, I'm still convinced it will be Nick Saban or Bill O'Brien. My guess is Saban is having the Browns put out these reports so the Bama players won't be distracted. And if they can't ink Saban, O'Brien is their backup plan.

I just think having his style of offense against defenses that see pro-style sets every week will take some getting used to. Good thing we play them twice.

Dumb move for Kelly. Should have waited for a gig with a better franchise. Don't go somewhere were you have zero chance to win. He'll be gone in 3 years.

Um, don't you know that Browns fans aren't supposed to post in Jungle Noise??

Wow. You really have NO interest in what a divisional opponent is bringing to the table next year. Trust me....someone in the Bengals organization is paying attention to this even on the eve of the playoffs. Sure nothing is concrete, but relax man it's just a discussion.... Geeeeez!

He's picking the wrong division to coach in. Too many good defenses.

He will not be running the Oregon offense in the NFL. There may be attributes of it but that will be it.

He may be able to run a variation of it. Something similar to what they run in Washington with RG3.

I'm absolutely NOT a browns fan bro. As a Bengals fan I hope they get Chip Kelly because I don't think his system will work in the NFL.

They have decent talent on offense but no QB. Richardson is good. Josh Gordon is a good #2 WR.

Just imagine if they drafted Julio Jones and was successful in trading for RG3. Supposedly they offered a slightly better deal than the Redskins.

They are also in a really tough division.

Why? The NFL copies college football all the time. The wildcat. Spread offenses. Using a TE as a WR.

The bottom line is a system works if you have the right QB and personnel.

Chip Kelly's success is completely based on this offense (and some shady recruiting practices with recruiting services in Texas). Those close to this situation are saying he wants to go to the NFL because he is intrigued to see if his offense will work or not at the pro level. They don't have the pieces for this offense (please don't give me Colt McCoy and his pop gun arm). Heck they might win some games early on with this, but there will be no long term success. I hope they ink this deal, I would be more worried about Saban or O'Brien.

The same reason I celebrated when as a diehard Buckeye fan I was super pumped when Rich Rod was hired by Michigan because I knew his scheme would not fit in the Big Ten.
