According to the Around the League Podcast with’s Chris Wesseling, the Denver Broncos offense has the opportunity to but up gaudy numbers along the lines of the 2007 New England Patriots that broke all sorts of records. The reason for that? Chip Kelly.

The record-shattering 2007 Patriots ran an up-tempo no-huddle attack that Bill Belichick has credited to the new man at the helm for the Philadelphia Eagles, offensive guru Chip Kelly. Throw in the addition of Wes Welker that was a huge part of that Pats’ team, and the Broncos are now extremely dangerous from anywhere on the football field.

John Fox had this to say to NFL Media’s Michael Silver about the Broncos’ high-paced attack.

“You want change of pace. Just like a pitcher — you don’t throw all fastballs. The good ones throw different speeds. They throw curves and sliders and changeups. That’s the trend. Call it the ‘Chip Kelly Effect’. We fell victim to it a year ago in New England. We kind of stole it from them, really.”

It is no surprise that Denver would want to take after the likes of Bill Belichick’s Patriots and Chip Kelly, who had boat loads of success during his days with Oregon.
