The problem with understanding the Chip Kelly offense is that there is no Chip Kelly offense. This is a head coach who is difficult to stuff inside a well-defined box, and the same goes for whatever schemes his offensive team happens to use in a given series or game or season. Heaven knows, people have tried since Kelly left Oregon to join the Eagles. There have been lots of labels - zone-read, read-option, hurry-up, quick-strike - but the labels just don't stick.
To Phillies fans hoping desperately for a change in the team's direction - and, yes, by now everyone knows exactly what you think that first change should be - the sad news that team president David Montgomery requires a leave of absence while he deals with his recovery from cancer surgery was tempered somewhat by the appointment of Pat Gillick as the club's "interim caretaker."
