If his scheme is good and talent evaluation is solid, that leadership makes his team a playoff team. But Chip Kelly is an unusual case, where his scheme is probably going to be really inventive and very successful, or it's going to be really bad.
Again, it's boom/bust. But unlike a lot of other innovators, the team won't fail for lack of leadership.
