Chip Kelly is not scared of Tony Romo or Kyle Orton, he will prepare the same way

Whether Tony Romo or Kyle Orton starts at quarterback, Kelly said, his team’s preparations won’t change.

“I don’t think it changes their offense much just because of who the backup is,” Kelly said. “I think they’re going to stick with what they do. They obviously have playmakers in Dez Bryant and [Jason] Witten. They’re going to run the ball with DeMarco Murray, who didn’t play against us in the first game.”

On Monday, Kelly praised Romo’s performance in bringing Dallas back for a fourth-quarter comeback win at Washington the day before. With reports that Romo has a serious back injury, Kelly was even more impressed.

“If he can’t go, the first thing that came across my head will be that that performance against the Redskins was pretty special,” Kelly said. “He did what he did, with the ability to bring them back and win that football game. The one thing you know about him is he’s an unbelievable competitor.”

You have to like what Kelly has done in his first year as a head coach. While there were a few ups and downs, he has really turned the locker room into a group of guys that can taste a win.
