MY GOD I LOVE THIS MAN.
Chip Kelly coaches with the enthusiasm of a fat kid given an unlimited ice cream pass in a bounce house who just happens to make like $5 million per year. Enthusiasm off the charts.
1) Genuine appreciation for the troops
“Of course you are [from Philly!]”
2) He just loves excellence
“I guarantee you [the skydiver] sticks the landing… these guys are the best in the world at this.”
3) Billy Davis loving the fans
“This fan base is committed as hell, though.”
4) Still needs to tell Riley Cooper which arm to hold the ball in
“Even a wily veteran I can coach!” Most would assume the wily veteran would know not to hold the ball on the side of the tackling defender. #CutCooper
5) Hates NFL apparel rules
“There are very stringent rules on NFL apparel… in college we could wear whatever we wanted to wear, here there’s more rules than you can shake a stick at.”
6) Chip relates
“The only guy here who coordinates with the number– I love it! I love it! I love it! See, Max, he’s even got the sleeves that match the number. Little camouflage sleeves. Look at the camouflage sleeves!” Yeah, but Chip Kelly doesn’t relate to his players.
7) The way the players “Yes, sir” him
8) Explaining to Timmy Tebow that he has more than one option on any given play
“Play the game within the game. The game is completing it, but the game within the game is on his face mask.” [Anyone else noticing a trend with the Florida players?]
“Solid jugs performance today! Solid jugs performance by you today.”
Just buy a shirt. Buy all of them!
