Chip Kelly Press Conference Reaction Thread

Here's your open thread. Here's the University press release, and Moseley's piece on the press conference.

At the earliest, LeGarrette Blount would be reinstated by the Stanford game, on November 7th. According to Kelly,

After speaking with a number of nationally renowned professionals in the field, which included Dr. Harry Edwards and Tony Dungy, I came to the conclusion that leaving the door open for LeGarrette’s potential return as an active player was the best solution

He has a rigid set of conditions he must live up to and there are certainly no guarantees in place. This merely provides him the opportunity for my reconsideration in the future should he meet those demands.

As terrible as this situation has been, I think that Kelly has done an excellent job. It's unorthodox for sure, but I appreciate that our coach is honest about the situation, and is open to change if that is what is best for the player, and the team, in the long run. Kelly made it clear that this is not a football decision, it is a personal decision. LeGarrette will not have an easy road, and it's all on him now. As Kelly said, if LeGarrette can fulfill the plan that's in place, he deserves to play football again.
