A couple of solid one-liners from Chipper at his Wednesday press conference. First, he was asked about Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles being jinxed due to the second-year quarterback earning a spot on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.

Q: Are you aware of the @SInow cover jinx? Coach Kelly: I don't believe in it. #FlyEaglesFly

Kelly was also asked about the goofy "Viking horn" sound heard at games in Minnesota which was also played at Eagles practice today.

Was that an attempt to mimic the crowd noise in Minny on Sunday? Jimmy Kempski has more at Philly.com:

Chip replied, "I thought it was the horn from Anchorman, when he calls for his guys, and they were all standing right next him."
The two do sound eerily similar.
