    Not a fan of this if true. We will have to face two very fast offenses with Skins and Eagles from now on.

    I don't think Kiffin really gives a rats *** until Philly gets an RGIII type QB

    The Oregon speed thing is overrated. They PLAYED fast but they didn't exactly have all-world track stars at every position. Remember LaGarrett Blount playedin this offense.

    I wouldn't really be too concerned about what personnel they have right now anyway. That will change as Kelly brings in guys to fit his system.

    For the record, this is going to fail miserably.

    I really do not concern myself with what other teams do or who they get. Only concern is what the Cowboys do and who they get.

    Obviously he doesn't take this job unless he's given complete 100% control of all football matters. Either an epic win or an epic disaster. Either way it will be fun to watch.

    I'm kinda relieved they didn't get Gus Bradley, because I've been researching him a lot lately and the word "football genius" gets thrown around a lot to describe him.

    Very interesting move by Philly. I think Kelly will keep Vick and trade Foles for a draft pick.

    Blount was a compliment. That entire offense is predicated on the fact that they are faster than the defenses they play against.

    In the NFL, speed is a tool, not a strategy. Kelly will need to adjust if he wants to have any success at this level.

    How many feel that this is another coach that will put coach Garrett?

    For your sake, I hope you meant in relative terms.

    Every team in the NFL is faster then the fastest college team.

    The speed difference between Oregon and most other college teams is certainly greater then the speed difference between the Eagles and other pro teams.

    This is where the system might falter. (crosses fingers)
