It's pretty much a given that KC is going to draft Geno Smith.

So -- Andy drafts a QB and brings McNabb aboard to play the "Pederson" role.

so is that the "Pederson Principle"?

I think the last Qb that was drafted by KC that actually won a game was in 1989. KC must have shitty scouts.

That's what I think also, and draft Mike Glennon.

The holdup with Reid being finalized is that his agent just told him the deal was with KC. Andy had thought he was signing with KFC.

What do you all think of this....will his success in college translate to wins in the NFL?  I do not know much about the guy.  They sure could use some help on the offense.



AP source: Chip Kelly close to deal with Cleveland Browns

By Tom Withers, Associated Press Published: Jan 4, 2013 at 4:59 PM PS

CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Browns are close to a deal with Oregon's Chip Kelly to become their next coach.

The Browns interviewed Kelly on Friday and the Ducks coach was supposed to meet with Philadelphia. However, a person familiar with the interviews says the Eagles are "heading in another direction" because Kelly is nearing a deal with Cleveland.

That person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team isn't discussing its negotiations publicly, said the Eagles planned to interview several other candidates regardless of any conversations with Kelly.

The Eagles were granted permission Friday to interview Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and are scheduled to meet with Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Sunday.

Following Oregon's win over Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night, the 49-year-old Kelly said he wanted to get the interview process over "quickly."

He turned down an offer from Tampa Bay last year to return for his fourth season at Oregon, where he is 46-7. He has boosted the school's national profile with a high-powered offense capable of turning any game into a track meet.

"It's more a fact-finding mission, finding out if it fits or doesn't fit," Kelly said after the Ducks beat No. 7 Kansas State 35-17. "I've been in one interview in my life for the National Football League, and that was a year ago. I don't really have any preconceived notions about it. I think that's what this deal is all about for me. It's not going to affect us in terms of we're not on the road (recruiting). I'll get an opportunity if people do call, see where they are.

"I want to get it wrapped up quickly and figure out where I'm going to be."

Kelly has been at the top of the Browns' list of candidates since the team fired Pat Shurmur, who went 9-23 in two seasons. Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner have been conducting interviews in Arizona all week, searching for the team's sixth coach since 1999.

The Browns have declined comment on any interviews.

Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton confirmed he interviewed with Cleveland earlier this week. The Browns have reportedly met with former Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt, Syracuse coach Doug Marrone and Penn State's Bill O'Brien, who removed himself from any consideration on Thursday night and intends to stay at the school.

Kelly doesn't have any NFL coaching experience, but aspects of his up-tempo offense are already being used by some teams.

Kelly wouldn't say if he was leaning one way or another following the Ducks' bowl win.

"I said I'll always listen, and that's what I'll do," he said. "I know that people want to talk to me because of our players. The success of our football program has always been about our guys. It's an honor for someone to say they'd want to talk to me about maybe moving on to go coach in the National Football League. But it's because of what those guys do. I'll listen, and we'll see."

Oregon could be facing possible NCAA sanctions for the school's use of recruiting services, but Kelly indicated he isn't running from anything.

"We've cooperated fully with them," he said. "If they want to talk to us again, we'll continue to cooperate fully. I feel confident in the situation."

Oregon's players gave Kelly a Gatorade bath as the final seconds ticked off the clock in Thursday night's game, and afterward a few of the Ducks seemed resigned to their coach moving on.

"We'll have to see," quarterback Marcus Mariota said. "Whatever he decides to do, we're all behind him. He's an unbelievable coach. He's not only a football coach, but he's someone that you can look to and learn a lot of life lessons from. Whatever happens, happens. But we're all behind him.

"We'll see where it takes us."

Re: Chip Kelly

Oregon is about to be put on probation so Chip is taking the NFL big bucks just like Pete Carroll did.

Eagles get permission to interview Bruce Arians
Posted by Michael David Smith on January 4, 2013, 4:55 PM EST

Bruce Arians did great work in 2012 as the Colts’ interim coach while head coach Chuck Pagano missed most of the season while undergoing chemotherapy. So it’s no surprise that Arians is now considered a strong candidate to become a head coach on a permanent basis.

The Eagles announced on Friday that they have been granted permission to interview Arians. That interview is expected to take place next week, regardless of whether the Colts win or lose against the Ravens on Sunday. Assistant coaches whose teams win in the wild card round of the playoffs are permitted to have head-coaching interviews during the week before the divisional round of the playoffs.

Another assistant coach whose team is playing on Sunday, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, is in the same boat: The Eagles have received permission to interview Bradley and plan to do so next week, regardless of whether the Seahawks win or lose against the Redskins.

Several reports have said that the Eagles’ top candidate is Oregon coach Chip Kelly. The fact that the Eagles are planning multiple interviews for next week suggests that they aren’t expecting to hire Kelly quickly — or that they want Kelly to know that he can’t string them along indefinitely.

That is too bad for Philly, I thought they were going to try and turn things around.

Ron Rivera, Jerry Richardson meeting on Saturday
Posted by Josh Alper on January 4, 2013, 10:28 AM EST

The Panthers are putting together a list of general manager candidates, which now reportedly includes Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson, but their head coach still hasn’t met with the team’s owner to talk about the 2012 season.

According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, that meeting will take place on Saturday. Ron Rivera and owner Jerry Richardson are expected to sit down to discuss Rivera’s future with the team. Rivera’s status has been in question ever since the Panthers fired General Manager Marty Hurney, but his team did finish the year with five wins in the final six games and four straight at the end of the year to wind up with a better record than he had in 2011.

How much playing out the string at that pace will impact Richardson’s decision remains to be seen, but it does suggest that Rivera was still able to find a way to elicit a strong effort from his players. An even bigger question is whether Richardson would make keeping Rivera as the coach for at least one more year would become a precondition for any G.M. candidates if the owner does decide to keep Rivera around.

We should know more after the weekend about who will be on the sideline for the Panthers in 2013.

Carolina decided to keep Rivera as head coach.

I'll be curious to see when the regular season ends in 2013 and if he will be a candidate for "Black Monday" in this pool next year. That will depend on which Cam Newton shows up to play next year, I think.
