I got suckered into a series of beer pong and baseball that always involves cheap beer. My 27 year old body that doesn't drink as often as my high school(sshh) and college body cannot handle it, so I am up at the wee hours of the night with mega heart burn watching QBs that could possible fit Chip Kelly's vision.

I feel like Brandon Weeden could fit well as he does like uptempo and seems to be much better when in the hurry up. He also seems to be a rhythm QB so it would benifit him to keep going quick once he gets hot. The only thing he would lack Kelly's QBs typically have is the threat to run the ball.

I only found a few Duke highlights and the Steelers game but Thaddeus Lewis seems to have a more than capable arm to go with solid accuracy. He also has the athletic ability to be a threat to run that Kelly likes. If nothing else I don't see why Thaddeus Lewis couldn't be coached up as a capable stop gap until Chip Kelly finds the QB he cannot live without.

Another QB I have been watching I believe could fit in with Kelly exceptionally well is Matt Scott from Arizona. I am not overly thrilled with him as a passer and he is no RG3 on the ground, however, he does present a good running threat and the arm talent/accuracy to be coached up as a passer. He is extremely raw as a passer with only one year of extended playing time. He has plenty of room to improve much like Aaron Rodgers and his gigantic leap from Cal to the NFL.

Tahj Boyd also looked impressive tonight but I think he stays with Dabo another year. I also wouldn't touch him with the 6th overall pick.

Maybe theoretically he would be, but Lewis has spent his entire career in Shurmur's pocket and I'm sure he's grown very comfortable with what Shurmur has been running. I'm not so sure he's still on the team regardless of who our next coach is, although I like the guy a lot.

I don't think Lewis would be a real option going forward, even as a stop gap. I could see us drafting someone like E.J. Manuel in the 3rd. He has good size, solid athleticism, solid arm strength, and would work well in Kelly's system because it would mask his problems with decision making and inaccuracy when facing a pass rush.

actually I would love to get Chip Kelly and draft Collin Klein in the later rounds.

It gives us a chance to see Chip Kelly work with Weeden. I honestly think Kelly would play to weedens strengths but after a few years when Weeden starts to get too old he gives it toe Klein. He would of been a back up for 2-3years. Everyone on the offense would have the basics of Chip Kellys offense and now with Klein he can really start opening it up with Klein and his legs in the offense.

It allows us to take pressure off a young QB but allows us to fully develop coaches QB

or you see him trade for one of his former QBs like Thomas.

I like Chip Kelly for TRich. Oregon had some success with the bigger type backs

Thad Lewis is under contract for next season, so if he did want to follow Shurmur he would have to be cut or traded by the new regime. Since he would fit Chips's offense better than any other QB on the roster I doubt it would happen if we signed Chip.

Baltimore's practice squad. Either way Thad Lewis looked better in his 1 start with limited notice than Dennis Dixon ever did in any of his 3 career starts.

Should say see my mock...


Dixon is the only former Oregon QB in the nfl that knows Kelly's offense I believe. The other two QBs are playing in Canada.... But he does know our conference very well and would be a great back up if nothing else.

Vick has the will set, but he looked punch-drunk this season??? Plus comes with the emotional fan baggage.

Tebow can run the power aspect of the offense and could be great for heavy packages, but his accuracy is very bad. Pus comes with the emotional fan baggage.


Who else?

Look college.....


Obviously no chance in getting kaepernic (sp?), rg3, or Cam.
