Do you approve or disapprove of the 49ers hiring Chip Kelly?

New, comments

We are through the week, and close to 36 hours removed from the San Francisco 49ers decision to hire Chip Kelly as head coach. With a day and a half to think on this, I wanted to get people's thoughts on the decision. I've attached a poll with a 1-to-10 scale, with 1 representing the worst possible decision, and 10 representing the best possible decision.

It's not a simple scale obviously given all the variables that factor in. I realize a variety of options were out there for fans to hope for in the coach search. I won't create a single standard on this, so just vote what you think.

It's a fascinating decision. Chip Kelly had some early success in Philadelphia, and then things fell apart. Maybe you think he's been found out by opposing defensive coordinators, and he cannot recover. Maybe you think he needed to be humbled and that will help him adjust. Maybe you're high on the Colin Kaepernick connection, or maybe you think it's a disaster waiting to happen. Whatever the case, on a scale of 1-to-10, what do you think of this decision?
