Josh’s Video Analysis: Chip’s Rose Bowl Play Calling Part 1

Today, we’ll be taking a look at part one of a two part series on Chip Kelly’s masterful playcalling in the 2012 Rose Bowl game. We’ll cover two key drives in depth in the first half, breaking down each play in those drives. Let’s get started.

    Great work.  Always come away understanding more than when I started.  This site is what a fan site SHOULD be.

    Nice going Josh,

    Truly a remarkable game, no let up off the gas pedal by CHIP, lol.  Seemed to keep attacking the front seven of Wisconsin and the OFFENSE matched score for score.  Looking forward to Part Two.

    Interesting. The first pass in that drive is entirely the same thing that Alabama did to LSU all game long – the smash concept. With similar results. And presumably for similar reasons.

    Love the colored arrows and slow-motion analysis of individual plays. Keep up the good work!

    I’ve been perhaps the worst chronic whiner about CK’s play-calling in last RB & Natty.  I agree with Josh, that the 1st half game plan & play calling was stellar.  I’ve always favored more of a 2-back offense, cuz opposing cant focus only LMJ and makes it a bit easier to get ball into hands of playmakers.  Nearly all of the 1st half big plays came from 2-back offense sets, or w/ DaT motioning into the backfield.  Should be a good omen for next year with KB & DaT & BB.  Thanks Josh & to Charles for his earlier one.  (I’m jus catchin’ up, helps me get thru w/o live games to watch!)  Evan — DC Duck
