Everyone knew that Chip Kelly’s offense was likely to feature the read option. However it been more and more exciting to see the ways in which this team has been demonstrating different wrinkles of the read option in the preseason. Over the last week or so number of great articles have been written about these wrinkles so I decided to put them all in one place!

Each of these articles focus on some particular aspect of the system and will help provide a better idea of how this team will actually function when the games matter—which make them all a must read for the diehards out there.
