An amusing exchange took place Thursday at head coach Chip Kelly's press conference.

Kelly was asked whether opponents try to fool the Eagles by calling certain plays early in the game before changing to their actual game plan later.

"That's way too smart for me," Kelly said. "I don't see that."

Naturally, Kelly wouldn't do anything like that.

"I know as a play-caller, we don't do that," he said. "I'm going to call three s---ty plays in a row and let them think the next one is going to be s-----, 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 ... now you may think there's some s---. Hey, write that. If there's a s----- call on Sunday, just say, 'Hey, he's setting them up. We knew what he was doing to do.'"
