Some fans weren’t too pleased when the San Francisco 49ers picked Chip Kelly over Mike Shanahan, who has won super bowls. Fans are still holding a grudge of the released of coach Jim Harbaugh.
Hall of Famer wide receiver says it’s a good move, especially for quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was benched after receiving a nice contract. Jerry Rice told CSN Bay:
“I think with Chip Kelly, it brought life to Colin Kaepernick. You look at Chip Kelly and what he was trying to implement in Philadelphia — with (Mark) Sanchez, (Nick) Foles, and (Sam) Bradford — those guys were more like pocket passers.
Now you got that read-option with Colin Kaepernick, a guy that can get outside the pocket and a guy that can extend plays, and he’s also gonna be a threat to run.
It could be a good marriage for them.”
