Before Kelly's firing, I was looking to this offseason because I figured he could get Kaep and RGIII at bargain basement prices and of the two of them, at least one of them would pan out as a star quarterback for his system. Its disappointing to see part of this shaping up for another team.
I'm glad Kelly's still in the NFL. I thought overall he had the right ideas even if he got in his own way sometimes.
From everything I've heard about Baalke as GM, this is going to be interesting, if only because Baalke didn't want to hire anyone to threaten his power, and Chip overplayed his hand last time. Maybe Chip can stay in line. I suppose this will all come down to whether or not they can stay on the same page.
I have a bad feeling this is all going to work out stellar for the 49'ers, and the Eagles are going to look stupid for firing Chip Kelly after one bad season. At least Belichik had a losing record in Cleveland when they fired him.
On the contrary, I think this is going to end with Kelly being fired again in three years or less. We've yet to see much evidence that Kelly is actually a good NFL coach, or that the 49ers front office is anything less than a tire fire.
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

Well, he was actually pretty good the first two seasons, before he usurped the GM's office and blew it all to hell. He's one of those coaches who really shouldn't be buying the groceries because he's give himself a roster full of candy, and no coach is good enough to make something filling off of that. Now if he can't succeed in San Francisco, then we'll know it's because his stuff doesn't work in the pros. Or maybe it's because of another incompetent front office. The perfect position if his goal is to not get blamed for anything.

Zeruel is right to change tiebreakers. The current tiebreaker system is based on a schedule in which divisional opponents have 12 common games, and conference opponents either play each other or have 4 common games.
