I don't think what he did in Oregon will translate directly. I don't know what to think, yet, about what he might do to adjust it for the NFL. I do think it'll probably be a year or two process for him, and I don't think it'll be driven by Mike Vick.
One thing of note, though, Kelly and Belichik have spent time in recent offseasons, comparing notes. NE does a pretty good job of borrowing the elements they think will work in this league. That's a pretty good blueprint to start from.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
