PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There were two things that cheered me up after Sunday’s Eagles loss. First, the Cowboys blew it, as the Cowboys often do. Second, Chip Kelly’s day-after press conference was full of Kelly sarcastic goodness.
I need to be clear that this is a tribute to Chip’s sarcasm, and not a criticism. Philadelphia can be crazy, the fans and media, we can all be crazy, and the sarcasm is a little reminder of that insanity.
When asked how Kelly will handle Sunday night’s game if the Cowboys win:
We’re going to cancel the game.
When asked if he would keep track of the score of Sunday’s Cowboys game:
No, I’m in a vacuum.
When asked if he thinks the Eagles should have run the ball more:
We went for it on fourth and a half yard and we did not get it. So I’ll probably kick myself in the tail. We should have thrown a pass in that situation.
When asked if he considers himself a “pro coach” rather than a “college coach”:
I considered myself a pro coach eight times this year, and six times I haven’t.
