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.

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability. Sixth-round selection Nick Zakelj, who will wear No. 63, spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since draft night and shared a rather interesting fact about his football childhood.

Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers. "I think definitely watching guys like Alex, especially growing up in Cleveland, being drafted, I



Should QB Jimmy Garoppolo play another snap for the 49ers?

The 2022 NFL Draft has come and gone, but San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the roster as he rehabs from a shoulder injury that required surgery in early March. For the past year, it has seemed apparent that the organization would move on from its veteran quarterback, as the 49ers were involved in talks with a number of free-agent quarterbacks last offseason, most notably Andy Dalton, and were also in the Matthew Stafford sweepstakes before the Rams ultimately traded for the longtime Lion. Eventually, the 49ers moved forward with a pre-draft trade, moving three first-rounders and a third-rounder in exchange for the third overall selection, which the team ultimately used on Trey Lance, who started two games in 2021.
