You act like this "philosophy" is something new. It's been around since the 70s. There's a reason why teams haven't successfully implemented it in the NFL full time. The NFL is ultimately a QB driven league and eventually when a QB is used as a RB enough in the NFL he gets killed.
Will Chip Kelly adapt? Probably. If he stick around long enough. Seems like a smart guy. Ultimately all coaches live and die by their QB play. The thing about Spurrier Petrino and Saban is they didn't stick around long enough to adapt or find their QB . They almost immediately decided the NFL is too hard and jumped ship back to college for lucrative jobs. If Chip Kelly struggled a little he would probably have his phone ringing off the hook by whatever major college program du jour that had an opening offering him a bazillion dollars to go back to college. Eagles covered their bases there a little bit by offering him $7 million.
