Chip Kelly joins 49ers....it was a good day

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers hired Chip Kelly to be their next head coach, and the day is slowly coming to a close. Reactions have varied considerably, as would be expected with a "name" like Chip Kelly. There do not seem to be any "meh", ambivalent thoughts on Kelly.

I have no idea how this is all going to shake out. This team could be rejuvenated and competing for playoff berths, or this could all fall apart and be a huge dumpster fire. What I do know is that this will be entertaining. My first choice is always to see the team win a Super Bowl. But, at the very least, I want to be entertained. This past year was a dumpster fire, AND it got incredibly boring. Yes there was some drama here and there, but this team was horrifically boring.

At the end of the day, a major reason I watch and write about sports is the entertainment value. Chip Kelly brings an entertainment factor. You get a creative offensive mind, and you get the personality stuff that makes him an intriguing character. Just read this Washington Post profile to learn more about his personality quirks.

However this all ends, it's going to be an entertaining path. And for me, that makes today a good day.
