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 the possibility of the 49ers trading for roster help

As the trade deadline approached last year, the San Francisco 49ers were engaged in trade talks with the Denver Broncos to acquire wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The Niners saw him as a player who could help them win a championship, and the team nearly did that but fell just short in Super Bowl LIV. Could general manager John Lynch and the 49ers make a similar move this season? This year's trade deadline is on November 3. "John and his group, they're always looking into all possibilities on that stuff," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared with reporters on Monday. "I mean, they're watching film on the whole league day in and day out. And they're always on the phone and stuff, whether it's John or other guys, some of the scouts, or whoever. They're always having a

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I know you guys were confident that you'd be able to bounce back, but being able to actually go out and do it, what do you think you learned about yourselves over the last week and coming away with the win tonight? "It was really just about coming into this game, you could feel in the locker room throughout the entire week, it was a different mindset that everyone had. The last couple of weeks before this, no one liked that feeling. It wasn't who we are as a team and I think this week it just kind of
