The San Francisco 49ers have hired Chip Kelly to be their head coach, and it is safe to say there will be plenty of reaction to the decision. Wide receiver Torrey Smith was the first 49ers player to comment on it, and he went the humorous route. Chip Kelly's offense is known for being high octane, go! go! go!, and both sides of the ball are going to have get into probably the best shape of their careers.
After a year of truly abysmal offensive play, it is going to be interesting to see what this offense looks like. Blaine Gabbert finished the year as the starting quarterback, they have Colin Kaepernick under contract, they have a ton of cap space, and of course, they will have as many as 12 draft picks. Quarterback could be addressed, and the addition of Chip Kelly is going to create all sorts of twists and turns with free agency and the draft.
