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.'"

The San Francisco 49ers didn't play this past weekend but look to kick off the season's final six games with a win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The team is also hoping to emerge from its bye week healthier, getting several key players back. "If we can use this bye week to help us get healthier," head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week, "we can come back and play a little bit better football from it because I do feel we've got the guys in our building, and some guys coming back. That does give us a chance in every game." Shanahan hopes to get cornerback Richard Sherman, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, and running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Colman back

Maybe 49ers Fans Don't Deserve Garoppolo

By Gilbert Brink

Face it, most of you don't deserve QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, you, the ones who spend your entire weekend pining over other QBs and lamenting the one the 49ers currently have as QB1. The spoiled, ungrateful brats of the 49ers fanbase who cannot find it in them to show any appreciation for the man they call Jimmy G. Fans like these make a situation insufferable for a player dedicating his life and body to the team. As Garoppolo spends his weeks working his way back from another high-ankle sprain, many 49ers fans are fantasizing about how to replace him. This isn't a foreign concept for the 49ers. No QB is ever good enough for this fanbase. Steve Young can attest to this from his experience in the early 90s. He was never going to be Joe, and that was a big problem for a good
