The 49ers are getting set to open camp, and the biggest question about the team is going to be how will this team play under new coach Chip Kelly as well as who plays quarterback for this club.
Today Peter King of SI in his ‘Monday Morning QB’ column wrote about Kelly, and had the following to say about it.
3. SAN FRANCISCO: Will Chip find redemption—and a quarterback—in his second chance? Heard frequently in the spring that Kelly likes Blaine Gabbert a lot, so it won’t be surprising to see Gabbert win the job. Kelly’s a smart guy. He’ll take what he learned in Philadelphia (and though he’s not likely to admit it publicly, he’ll probably be more collaborative after his Philly nightmare) and be a better coach with the Niners. But in a very tough division, that may not show up for a couple years, until he can get good play out of the quarterback position and be competitive on defense in a very good defensive division.
