Chip Kelly to listen to NFL overtures, wants process "wrapped up quickly"
Oregon football coach Chip Kelly said after a 35-17 Fiesta Bowl victory that he would listen to interested NFL teams – a list expected to include the Eagles. He added that he wants to “get it wrapped up quickly.”

Thoughts On Kelly/Oregon's Win
Oregon isn’t the biggest team. Kelly prefers speed. Still, they are not a finesse team. Oregon wore down the KSU defense by running the ball. KSU controlled the run in the 1st half. Kelly sped up the attack and ran more after halftime. Oregon finished with 46 runs for 219 yards. They controlled the game in the 2nd half. There was one drive late in the game with 7 straight run plays. You love to see a team do that and just destroy the will of the opponent. We did that vs Dallas a couple of years ago, but very rarely in the Reid era.
