Three Reasons Why Chip Kelly’s Offense is Not a Fad

Alex Kirby Analysis Leave a Comment

The list of college coaches who have transitioned well to the professional level is not a long one, and shorter still is the list of those who have done well right away.  Often it’s an inability to deal properly with professional players, other times the intense demands of the job are more than the coach is prepared for.  Still other …

The Evolution Will be Televised: The Development of Packaged Plays in the Chip Kelly Offense

Brian Flinn Analysis Leave a Comment

It has been almost a decade that I have been the wide receivers coach at Villanova, and during this time I have been fortunate to be a part of a great spread offensive system and also watch the evolution of offensive football up close.  As you already may know, my biggest influence during this time has been the Chip Kelly offense …

Different League, Same Package: How the Oregon Offense Ran Through the NFL in 2013

Brian Flinn Analysis Leave a Comment

Despite several reports to the contrary, the Chip Kelly Oregon offense is alive and well in the NFL!  The Eagles’ offense we saw go up and down the field in South Philly this fall bore a strong resemblance to the Oregon offense I studied from 2008 to 2012. Operating out of the shotgun and rarely huddling, the Eagles led the …

Developing Offensive Linemen for the Zone Scheme

Levi Steier Analysis Leave a Comment

When watching the Oregon Ducks execute their high octane run game it is easy to get caught up in the play-making ability of their skill players. Watching guys like Marcus Mariota and De’Anthony Thomas is exhilarating.  What some fail to realize is the success or failure of the run game hinges on the offense’s ability to control the line of …

Will The Chip Kelly Offense Revolutionize British Football?

Adam Dawkins Analysis Leave a Comment

The English South Division of the British American Football League (BAFL) is a “Smash Mouth” division if ever there was one. From the 5-on-5 Youth (ages 14-16) teams — using two back sets — to the unbalanced lines and two tight end formations of the Senior game (19+), this division likes to hit you in the mouth and run the …

How Stanford Stopped The Oregon Offense II

Josh Schlichter Analysis Leave a Comment

For a moment, the “Oregon Paradigm” got to me. I didn’t expect Stanford to slow Oregon down, much less hold them to 14 points in a dominant fashion. When Oregon plays elite defenses, the results will never result in 40 point victories. No offense will be breaking big plays consistently against high caliber defenses. When Oregon plays good teams, the score …

Defending the Spread: Zone Out or Man Up

Josh Schlichter Analysis Leave a Comment

Stopping Oregon is a terrible task for a defensive coordinator, especially during the middle of the season with little time to prepare between games. The schematic bonuses given to the Ducks through spreading a defense out, then isolating and rendering a defender useless, truly makes a defense overmatched schematically in every way. So that brings up the inevitable question–how does …
