Billick: 49ers fans want to see how Chip Kelly comes out of the gate

Aug 11, 2016 at 9:49 AM--


Brian Billick appeared on NFL Network's Good Morning Football this morning and named Chip Kelly of the San Francisco 49ers as the first-year (on a new team) head coach that he is most excited to see.

"I think the San Francisco fans and everybody wants to see how Chip Kelly's team comes out of the gate," said Bullock. "Now it is preseason, but obviously it's such a dramatic change in terms of the style. They want to see can indeed Chip Kelly's style of play convert quickly in San Francisco. They want to see this high-flying offense and they want to see it now."

When asked what his coaching strategy would be for preseason, Billick reminded everyone that the first preseason game is about evaluation. That's something that 49ers offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins stressed this week. "We're not looking to out-scheme Houston by any means," said Modkins. "We're looking to see who can block and who can be in the right places and who steps the right way, whose fundamentals are the right way and whose pad levels are down, can we throw and catch simple routes. There's not any game planning going on for the first game."

"[The first preseason game] is about finding who you have on your team," said Billick. "This is going to be the most substantial playing time for the young players, for the backup players, save the last game of preseason. But as you know, if you wait until then to show that you belong on that team, you may miss the boat because by then it's too late. So this first game as a coach – starters are in there for a little bit – it's all about 'I want to look at every player I have on the roster and find out who can play.'"

San Francisco 49ers fans could see a lot of a familiar face this weekend when their favorite team takes on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. That's because running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to miss "a couple of weeks," according to Jets head coach Adam Gase. That could mean the 49ers defense facing a healthy dose of Frank Gore, the Bay Area team's all-time leading rusher and a fan favorite.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Tight end George Kittle missed his third practice of the week and has been ruled "out" of Sunday's game due to a knee injury. Kittle suffered the injury just before halftime during Week 1's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Cornerback Jason Verrett is the only other 49ers player who has officially been ruled "out" — other than those on injury lists. Defensive end Dee Ford experienced some neck stiffness this week and underwent further tests. He has been listed as "questionable" to play against the Jets. On the Jets' side, wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

The Sky Is Not Falling, 49ers Fans

I have recently discovered one of my new favorite shows on Hulu during this COVID-19 quarantine. It's called Letterkenny, and it's a half-hour comedy out of Canada that brings jokes, wit, and one-liners at a pace that is almost overwhelming at times. There is a LOT of Canadian slang (yes that's a real thing, and most of it comes from hockey), and one of the phrases that main character Wayne, the town's champion fighter and tough guy, says often when confronted by nonsense from somebody is "You better settle down over there or I'm gonna come talk to ya." 49er fans, you better settle down over there or I'm gonna come talk ya! The 49ers' performance against the Cardinals in Week 1 was less than stellar. The offense looked disjointed with its top two receivers, Deebo
