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.

Jimmy Garoppolo discusses relationship with Trey Lance as 49ers start training camp

Jimmy Garoppolo enters training camp as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. However, the team made a move for the future this offseason with the selection of Trey Lance, indicating that the rookie, not Garoppolo, is the quarterback of the future. The situation has changed significantly since the 49ers signed Garoppolo to a mega-deal following the 2017 season. Still, for now, the job is Garoppolo's. And from the sound of reports coming out of Santa Clara this offseason and even today, as the 49ers held their first practice of training camp, Garoppolo has performed well and won't relinquish his job without a fight. Garoppolo stepped up to the podium after practice and was asked about his relationship with Lance. The two were seen

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was among the first players to work with Trey Lance after the San Francisco 49ers drafted the quarterback. The two had the same speed trainer and were in Orange County together, so they got together. Lance immediately impressed the second-year receiver. "Every single day, he was there, ready to work, no matter what he had going on," Aiyuk shared with reporters on Friday. "So, just the character of the kid, as a young kid, I just saw that early on." While Lance to Aiyuk could be a staple of the 49ers offense for years to come, the receiver figures to catch most of his passes this season from a different quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo is



49ers' Nick Bosa on track to play Week 1; DeMeco Ryans talks plans for Fred Warner, Samson Ebukam

It's been a long journey back for San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa. He suffered a devastating knee injury during Week 2 of last season and admitted the road to recovery was often "really rough" on him mentally. Bosa was entering his second NFL season and coming off an impressive campaign that earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The injury derailed everything. Luckily, he had the support of his family, including his brother, Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa. "Once you get past the initial pain of [the injury], then there's really no other option but to come back better," Bosa told reporters after Thursday's practice. The coaching staff has limited Bosa during training camp practices. The defender is vital to the



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
