Chip Kelly introduced himself to the Bay Area media Wednesday. It went well. None of the grunting, mumbling, sweating, stammering, furtive and incoherent rambling made notorious by his inept predecessor Jim Tomsula. Crisp, witty, intelligent. Terrific.
If this was 2011, I’d be cautiously excited. But it’s 2016 and Jed York just spent the past year sucking the life out of the franchise and squandering a whole bunch of good will in the process. Hauling out the pom-poms at this point is a bit much to expect.
At any rate, we’ll have to reserve judgment on Chip until next September. We’ll definitely see an improved offense, but whether that translates to improved win totals remains to be seen.
York said Kelly would be the coach here for a long time. Period. Not sure what York considers a “long time.” The longest any HC has been here during the York ownership was the four years Jim Harbaugh put in. Two final years of Steve Mariucci‘s tenure, two with Dennis Erickson, three and a half with Mike Nolan, two and a half with Mike Singletary. York just can’t help himself with overstating his decisions and their impact.
But he obviously feels his job is done for now and he can prepare himself to strut around at the Super Bowl, hoping the negative banner flying guys will be pleased enough to shit can their assault. Personally, I hope they get a plane up on the big day and just cut to the chase: “JED YORK STILL SUCKS!”
All we need to complete the misery now is to see the effing Patriots get to the SB and win the damn thing. Please, Lord. I’ll never sin again. I’ll say something nice about unca_chuck, even though it would be a bald face lie. Please, take them out of the playoffs! It’s too much to bear.
