"Its about what pieces do you have in place and how are we gonna score points"
Completely shot down any idea that Kelly has a set "scheme." Basically said he will work with the players that he has. The first comment in my opinion was saying that they didn't give him the job and agree to keep Vick and shooting down the idea that Kelly will automatically want a fast QB who can run.
Just my opinion, could be nothing!

My thing is this. I was very upset to hear that Chip Kelly was brought in to be the head coach because I thought for all intensive purposes that this would be a running team, with a running quarterback, which would mean that Vick would be the quarterback and I don't want that. Nothing against Vick as a person, but the guy couldn't stay healthy, he couldn't deliver an accurate pass, the guy couldn't step in the pocket, and the guy contributed to our turnover woes, with a healthy line or an unhealthy line.
Foles on the other hand was a rookie that showed he could do everything Vick could minus the long pass accuracy and the speed, but lets be honest, its not like Vick was completing any 50 plus yard bombs either, so get that out of your head too.
I hope that he adapts to this team like Harbaugh did. He was a pocket passer kind of guy with Alex Smith and Andrew Luck, but with Kaepernick, he is coaching the sprint option in the pistol. To be honest, if Chip Kelly isn't innovative enough to gear his offense towards that system, then he doesn't have the tools to make it in the national football league, I'm sorry.
The age of quick, sprint option quarterbacks will come and go so fast that its not even funny and the teams that will use it for the next few seasons are there to try to win a championship with it, but in two years it should be gone, just like the wildcat was.

He kept saying as much. But is he being sincere or just trying to avoid the ish-storm that would follow from a more forthright answer? I hope it's sincere.

It sounded very sincere.
