It was way too early to call Kelly a coach of the year candidate a few weeks ago too, but you did!
Kelly is finding out you don't have another scholarship QB ready to step in and run an offense that basically ran itself at Oregon, because so often the other team simply did not have enough athletes on defense to keep up. Not the case in the NFL...does not matter how high-tech your offense is.
You have to wonder if this makes him long for the days at Oregon (or USC, which started this tangent), where he can load up again with the best players.
His decision-making has also been exposed...possibly a by-product of not having to make many in-game decisions on the college level, where he was winning most games by three touchdowns in the first half alone.
You are wrong on so many points I almost don't even know where to start.
First, I never said he was a coach of the year candidate. I said it was possible if they went from last to first. I also said it was more likely that he win coach of the year than him getting fired. That's not calling him a candidate.
Second, he DID have another "scholarship QB" ready to step in. The problem is he got hurt too. They're down to third string in Philly.
I highly doubt he's longing for the days when he can take a huge step backwards and go coach USC. He's probably worried about his game plan for next week and how everyone will be eating crow when he turns things around. The only thing about college that he is probably giving serious thought is who they are going to draft.
They are still in second place in their division at this moment, only 1 game out of first. It's way too early to be digging his grave.
