Chip Kelly discusses the “misconception” that the 49ers want to play fast

Sep 21, 2016 at 10:55 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly spoke to the media a little bit today about his offense's slower than usual pace while facing the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

"Again, that's a misconception that we talk about all of the time," Kelly said. "We don't try to operate at a very quick pace and don't try to run more plays than other people run and just trying to take advantage of what the defense is. Sometimes when you're playing against a multiple defense, you want to make sure you're in the right play and we can have checks that are done at the line of scrimmage.

"So, again, it goes back to, we talked about a long time the misconception that we want to play fast. It's just one of our tools in our toolbox that if it helps you because you know the look you're going to get and you can get them before they can lineup, it's beneficial to you. But, if you play fast and say, they have six guys on the right side and you run a ball to the right side and you lose four yards on the play, then playing fast isn't a real good thing to do.

"So, I think sometimes when you're playing multiple defenses, you want to be in the right look, you want to make a check at the line of scrimmage. So, it's all part of what we do. It's just one phase. We can play fast if the situation dictates that we play fast. But, there was a lot of checking that went on in the Carolina game. So, if we're checking in the Carolina game to make sure we're getting in and out of the right plays, then obviously when you're going to check then you're not going to play fast."

Kelly went on to say NFL rules that have been in place for some time now don't give a fast paced offense an advantage. Defenses are allowed time to substitute properly to match up against offenses.

Kyle Shanahan discusses finding a risk-reward balance while building the 49ers roster

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers always seem willing to take a chance on a player if the potential value appears to outweigh the cost. Take cornerback Jason Verrett, for instance. The 49ers' brain trust could have cut ties with the player, who was considered injury-prone, after he landed on injured reserve last season. It was the fifth time in six NFL seasons that Verrett landed on injured reserve. No one would have blamed San Francisco for cutting its losses and moving on. Verrett proved to be one of the better storylines in an otherwise disastrous season. Not only did the cornerback stay healthy, starting 13 games, but he was Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest graded cornerback. RELATED:
