Maybe Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly is getting tired of asinine questions the media ask day after day. During his press confrence today at the Philadelphia Eagles Novacare Center he was asked this gem of a question.
When the game starts and you start taking a look at what the defense is doing in terms of matching and playing (man-to-man), is it common for teams to not show you what their real intention is early so you think you’re adjusting to what they’re doing and then they flip to what they really want to do?
What was that again? Kelly’s response was absolutely priceless.
That’s way too smart for me. I don’t see that, and I know as a play-caller we don’t do that, ‘Hey, I’m going to call three (expletive) plays in a row and let them think the next one’s going to be (expletive), and then we’re going after them.’ I think that’s a little bit … That’s not my mentality, and that’s what I meant. I’m not smart enough to … I mean, you may think there’s some (expletive) … Hey, write that. If there’s a (expletive) time on Sunday, just say, He’s setting them up. We knew what he was going to do.
Unfortunately, Kelly may be fined for that escapade. The real fine should be levied to the reporter who asked that question.
